Be sure to check out the excellent FREE open-source OsiriX

Escape Medical Viewer is a good DICOM product, built upon QuickTime technology and is available on both the Mac and PC platforms. As a commercial and cross-platform product, it is an easier sell to IT Departments than an open source application.

EMV is a good choice for Mac users working in a mixed platform Radiology Dept. IT in most hospitals wants ONE app- not a hodgepodge. EMV allows PC Radiologists and Mac Radiologists to have the same application while using the computer of their choice.

The other great advantage is the commercial support available that is not replicated on most open-source software. OsiriX is a great app that is getting better all the time, but many IT Admins or Imaging Directors will balk at the lack of support.

If you can find an Apple Value Added Reseller that will support OsiriX, go for it. Otherwise, you will find a great deal of resistance from Administration, IT and the Radiologists. EMV is also more G4 friendly than OsiriX, and would be a good choice for laptop use on a PowerBook for ON-Call image review.

For Workstation (read G5 with a good video card and a lot of memory) use, OsiriX. For mobile image review on a G4, use EMV.

Apples-to-oranges for some of the remarks. OsiriX MD is a paid, FDA approved, support-available version that may address your professional use concerns

So how does this compare to the excellent OsiriX (free) DICOM viewer? OsiriX allows me to view echoes and coronary angiograms in the same interface, and pretty amazing 3D reconstrcution for CT etc. And you can add shapes/ROI's etc, and do some basic calculations with ROI's.
Given the price for Escape (>$400) vs the price for OsiriX (free), is this really the best mac Dicom viewer? I doubt it.

EMV is a boon for viewing ultrasound images stored in Dicom format because it can display both stills and movie sequences (clips). Moreover, if a removable medium containing the studies is sourced, EMV shows the entire Dicom file with thumbnails for navigation. It can export stills to Powerpoint (and other files) which allows contrast, brightness and tint to be adjusted as well as imprinted names to be removed. It can also export movies to QuickTime (and others) and here has the important advantage of allowing the file's dimensions to be trimmed so that the patients name, usually placed at the top of the image, can be removed (difficult to achieve in QuickTime and impossible in Media Player). The frame rate can also be adjusted here.
All-in-all a superb application for handling medial images.

I wish for simple image editing (eg an overlay to obliterate names) and for the Dicom overview to work on studies already on my hard disk - meanwhile, this is a must have for medical imagers!

This program is different than Madena and somewhat more like iRAD (both free). It has some very nice features, and comes close to matching Osiris (a slick OS 9 DICOM viewer which is also free) in functionality.
