Even if many open source components are currently available, Fedora is still lacking proper medical imaging support. This page is an attempt to coordinate the effort to provide the required packages.

In order to cover the gap we need to add:

  • A free out-of-the-box working PACS solution. Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) provide the medical imaging world with economical storage, rapid retrieval of images, access to images acquired with multiple modalities, and simultaneous access at multiple sites. Electronic images and reports are transmitted digitally via PACS; this eliminates the need to manually file, retrieve, or transport film jackets.
  • DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) support. This is the universal format for PACS image storage and transfer.
  • Viewers like [OsiriX] for the Mac world
  • Imaging libraries specifically tailored for medical imaging

This table summarize the current status of the support.
