The AccuSoft Medical Imaging Software Development Kit (MISDK) is used by application developers to implement DICOM display and processing functions into a Windows application. The MISDK comes in two forms allowing integration into various programming environments: as Win32 DLLs, typically used with C/C + +, and as Win32 ActiveX components, used with Visual Basic, Delphi, PowerBuilder, and MS/Access. In addition to DICOM files, MISDK supports more than 60 other image file formats, including JPEG and TIFF. The MISDK includes a wide range of

sample programs, so that users can copy-and-paste the pertinent code into their applications.

The toolkit provides the following capabilities:

• Read and write DICOM-conformant files to disk, including all modalities

• Display and print DICOM images of all pixel representations

• Display controls (window/level, zoom, pan, false-color, etc.)

• Full access (read, create, update) to the DICOM Dataset elements

• Completely automatic "thumbnail" image facility

• Image processing (convert to other formats, rotate, clip, etc.)

• Image enhancement (edge enhance, smooth, sharpen, gamma correction, etc.)

• Image annotation (text, graphics, measured lines, measured angles, etc.)

• Print images (to standard Windows printers)

The AccuSoft DICOM Communications Software Development Kit (DCSDK) provides implementation of any of the DICOM service classes to application developers and equipment manufacturers. When combined with AccuSoft's DICOM Imaging SDK, developers can implement DICOM on their systems.

AccuSoft's ExamiNet Web-browser plug-in allows WWW site developers to embed DICOM images into their HTML pages as easily as they can embed JPEG or GIF images. The end user simply sees the DICOM image as part of the Web page (Fig. 12).
