DICOM QuickLook by OsiriX is a simple application that can display any DICOM files.

Did you pass a CT (scanner) exam or a MRI (magnetic resonance) exam recently?

All these equipments produce images in DICOM format. A DICOM file is similar to a JPEG file, but with specifications for medical imaging. That means that a file of a chest x-ray image, for example, actually contains the patient name and patient ID within the file, so that the image can never be separated from this information by mistake. This is similar to the way that image formats such as JPEG can also have embedded tags to identify and otherwise describe the image.

You can ask your doctor or the imaging center to provide you a CD/DVD or a USB stick with the images, in DICOM format.

This small application with the QuickLook plugin is the ideal companion for your DICOM viewer application.

OsiriX, a complete DICOM viewer application, is available on our web site: OsiriX MD is certified as a Class II medical device, by the FDA and European Union.

Does not work DICOMS not visible in finder

This quick look application does not function correctly. It likely could function well judging from the screenshots but because there is absolutely no documentation on how to get this piece of software to work it may as well be non-functional. At $6 Osirix is essentially stealing your money with this application, this application should be free (it worked). But as of now it is not even worth downloading.

To Osirix: please provide documentation on how to make sure this plays nicely with OSX quicklook. It’s possible that all users need to do is enable the software in their settings for quicklook but since you have provided no documentation on how to do this it is not possible. I am willing to change the review if documentation is provided. You have responded to commenters in the past so I am hopeful.

Good product

App opened DICOM files quickly into Finder. No problems or issues. Very helpful and worth the price.
