  • Our powerful VirtualViewer® HTML5 document and image viewer enables you to view, convert, annotate, redact and print DICOM files through a standard Web browser. Because VirtualViewer® is developed from our robust imaging SDK, it supports all of the file formats offered in our library. With VirtualViewer® you have the ability to view multiple document and image formats, including DICOM, through a universal viewer.

What is DICOM?

DICOM is a grayscale format designed for use with medical images including CT scans, MRIs, and ultrasounds. The format includes both a header (for text data) and the complete image in one file. A DICOM file can contain image information in three-dimensions.


Avoid surprises and delays. Snowbound Software recommends that, as part of your evaluation process, you test your own sample documents against our products. Though we've been in the document business for almost 20 years, modifications to document formats occur from time to time. Often they don't conform to specifications, but you may find it important to work with them. Snowbound, unlike most of our competitors, develops it own technology. If in the rare case you come across a problem or non-conforming document or image, we can often quickly fix it.
