Getting a sense of scale in your DICOM images

In Easy DICOM Viewer 3.1, we added the option to display a horizontal and vertical ruler in your DICOM images.  This helps to get a sense of scale when viewing the image, and also helps users make rough approximations.

To toggle the display of the ruler, click on the Show ruler button on the toolbar.

You can also choose to display the ruler in different units of measurement.  The active unit is displayed in the top left corner of the ruler.

You can also choose to display a grid overlay over the image together with the ruler.

To display this grid overlay, select the Show grid lines option in the Show ruler drop down menu.

Download a 14-day trial now of Easy DICOM Viewer and see how easy it is to display a ruler and grid in your DICOM images to help you measure regions of interest.
