What are the Windows alternatives to Osirix ?


You can find plenty but none as good as Osirix, but i must say there has been significant development over the 
last 6 months in the number of free DICOM viewers and the future does look bright.

RCR advise Philips viewer, which is good and is also being used in some of the FRCR courses.

In my research on the web, the current best Windows alternative for teaching purposes is RadiAnt (v 0.50).
