Radscaper is a powerful Java applet based DICOM web viewer with a thin footprint. The major advantage of using Radscaper compared to a variety of DICOM applications is that user doesn't need to install, update, and configure anything, which is somehow very complicated to a radiologist. User can read DICOM 3.0 complied images and tag information via intranet or internet. User can manipulate images from anywhere as easy as surfing Internet with zero training. It is easy to integrate Radscaper with any PACS system that provides a Web interface.

Unlike ActiveX technique, Java applet technique doesn't require users to lower their browser's security level at all, which is a big concern in medical industry.

Key Differentiators

  1. Easy installation, flexible configuration, and zero client-side installation and security compromising.
  2. Simple and intuitive user interface, minimized button click and zero training.
  3. Extremely maximized image display field of up to 99% of screen area.
  4. Feel like nothing, use like everything.

Server Platform

Radscaper supports Windows and Linux operating systems and many Web servers such as IIS and Apache.

Client Platform

Radscaper can be used from a client computer with any operating system such as Windows, Linux and Macintosh with a Java Applet-enabled browser such as Internet Explorer, Firefox and Netscape.


HTML pages can be statically or dynamically generated by PACS server, image server or other applications. Reader gets HTML pages through Web server. In turn, the embedded Radscaper Java applet will be downloaded from Web server to reader's system. A secure communication between Radscaper applet and AppletHelper will be established, through which image data will be transferred. The AppletHelper is able to access images from current Web server, local or remote file system, database or a third party Web server.
