Orthanc and VolView: Integrating Cinematic Volume Rendering Into a PACS Web Interface

Dear Orthanc community,

It is my great pleasure to officially inform you of the existence of the new VolView plugin for Orthanc.

This plugin results from the collaboration between my research lab at the UCLouvain university, and the Kitware company. It enables 3D volume rendering directly from the Orthanc Explorer 1 and 2 Web interfaces, which is a long-awaited feature for many of you.

A blog post with an associated demo video is available on Kitware’s Web site: https://www.kitware.com/orthanc-and-volview/

This plugin is already available in our official Windows installers and Docker images.
