“VolView represents a major leap in medical image visualization by making it available in an easy-to-use, open source, and fully customizable package,” says Stephen Aylward, Ph.D., Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives at Kitware. “Version 4.0 is a fresh start for the VolView platform, and we have plans for adding AI interpretation, DICOM Web, and many other advanced features over the next few months.”
