What software do I need to store images and manipulate images?

April 11th, 2005 · No Comments

There are many great software programs on the market. ACDSee, and Thumbs+ are programs that were written to manage and manipulate, but not image, pictures. Photoshop Elements adds imaging capabilities to the mix, but may require a considerable investment in time to do dental imaging. Digital Dentist takes it to the next level by offering detailed instructions as to how to use Micrographix Picture Publisher to perform dental imaging. Dicom Image and Image F/X have taken image storage and imaging to the ultimate level of simplicity. This simplicity comes at a price and time is money in dentistry. These programs start out at around $50 and can reach over $4000. I am in the final stages of developing a program that will download and store patient images, allow some manipluation, facilitate e mailing images at a specified size, and present images to patients in a slide show format. The goal is to provide a program that will fulfill a need in dentistry at a reasonable cost.
