About This Course

The XNAT-OHIF Viewer plugin has been developed by the Institute of Cancer Research, London as a modern improvement over the default image viewer that ships in XNAT 1.7. This viewer plugin is based on the Cornerstone OHIF javascript-based DICOM image viewer, with several XNAT-specific improvements to functionality and security.

In this course, we'll walk through the installation and usage of this viewer, displaying its core functionality and key use cases at a high level.

Note: At the time of this course release, the latest released version of the XNAT-OHIF viewer is 2.0. As major improvements are released and functionality is updated, this course will be updated as well.
