OsiriX 3.5 update ships

Medical image processing software OsiriX has been updated to OsiriX 3.5, with better rendering quality, a 3D-MPR viewer, support for 16-bit MIP images, multi-threading capabilities and more. The software is dedicated to viewing DICOM (.dcm) images, commonly used in the medical field for MRIs, CT, PET, Ultrasounds and other visual output devices. OsiriX can view other visual formats like Tiff, JPG, PDF, AVI, MPEG and QuickTime files. It supports multidimensional views, including standard 2D and 3D views and medical dimensions like 4D (3D plus temporal views) and 5D (3D plus temporal and functional views).

OsiriX supports 32-bit and 64-bit imaging, while unlimited image loading in 64-bit mode allows the application to exceed the 4GB RAM limit of 32-bit software. The 64-bit version is also fully optimized for multi-core Intel chipsets.

OsiriX 3.5 requires Mac OS X 10.5 and 1GB of RAM, with 3GB of RAM recommended. It is free to download with a GNU license.
