Does PACS DICOM 3D workstation mean anything to you?
PET-CT?
Anything like that?
I'm beginning to navigate OSyriX (a Mac 3D image analyzer for anatomy scans) a little, and I'd love to find someone who knows more about this area of study and software use.

I'm not sure what angle you are wanting to come at this, but I edited an article just last week on imaging in breast cancer.

After following a few leads from the references in the article I came on this article:

Positron emission tomography provides molecular imaging of biological processes (http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?tool=pubmed&pubmedid=10922074)

It is a nice background on the application of PET for several biological purposes.

If that's not what you are really after, there might be something useful in the references at the end of the article.

A Google search for "Positron Emssion Tomography Software (http://www.google.co.nz/search?hs=e2G&hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-GB%3Aofficial&q=Positron+emission+tomography+software&btnG=Search&meta=)" also turned up what might be some useful links.

Hi Crazzy Legs, this is definitely an area I'm interested in. Osirix looks like a great program but I'm on a PC. Space (http://lcni.uoregon.edu/%7Emark/Space_program.html) is a nice simple program for the PC. I wrote a couple of shaders (http://www.xsibase.com/forum/index.php?board=6;action=display;threadid=20262) for direct volume rendering of datasets with XSI. Is there something more specific you're interested in?
Ben
