    "Watch out for the Adware/ Malware that come from CNET"

    March 2, 2014  |   By jpfenroute

    Version: OsiriX 5.8.5

    Pros

    Great software

    Cons

    Adaware/ Malware comes with CNET, get this software from somewhere else... go direct to their website and download it there.

    "View X-ray files from the doctor"

    January 20, 2014  |   By RustyIron

    Version: OsiriX 5.8.2

    Pros

    The doctor sent home a CD with X-ray images on it. It was about 100 Windows dll files, an executable file, and FOUR image files in some format that was unrecognizable to my Mac computer. OsiriX opened the files perfectly.

    Cons

    None. The software did what I needed.

    Summary

    The software looks like it does a lot of stuff, but I just needed it to view some files from my doctor. For that, it worked perfectly

    Free product that looks and feels like a professional PACS

    Occasionally CD's will have formats that don't open in OsiriX for Mac but will open on a PC.

    "Program for viewing x-rays in OS X without Windows."

    June 12, 2011  |   By sncohen9

    Version: OsiriX 3.9.2

    Pros

    No need to switch to Boot camp or an emulation program to run Windows to view x-rays or scans. This takes the hassle out of viewing films from a Mac

    Cons

    May not be as fast as running it in Windows

    Summary

    Excellent program for viewing films without the inconvenience going to a Windows format.

    "NOT compatible with Powerbooks without the Intel chip."

    May 30, 2011  |   By oppyxray

    Version: OsiriX 3.9.1

    Pros

    None for me.,,,

    Cons

    If you don't have the Intel chip in your Mac, STAY AWAY from this. Use v3.7.1
    CNET is worthless in helping to warn about this. I've asked them several times.

    Summary

    If your Mac does not have the Intel chip, stay away from v. 3.8.1
    CNET is no help and is no Version Tracker (rest the V.T. souls)..

    "Well designed and very capable"

    March 2, 2010  |   By rigel2100

    Version: OsiriX 3.6.1

    Pros

    Lots of features, more than I could use. Useful to medical professionals and non-medical people.

    Cons

    The more complicated features aren't intuitive to the untrained person but appear to be easily accessible to professionals in the field.

    Summary

    The software is simple enough to be used by non-medical people, such as myself, but robust enough to allow professionals to perform comparisons and view in multiple perspectives.

    "Very nice medical viewer"

    August 22, 2009  |   By krisamico

    Version: OsiriX 3.5.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Very functional and powerful viewer for medical images. Was very easy to figure out how to look at a CD from a recent ultrasound -- just hit the CD-ROM toolbar button. Nice! When I wanted to explore further, the UI was not too hard to understand, though I discovered right away that I will have to do some reading to unlock OsiriX's full potential. Thanks for making this! I am loving it so far!

    "Powerful and solid"

    October 16, 2008  |   By wraggj

    Version: OsiriX 3.3

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    I am not a medical professional, but (unforunately) have had some issues necessitating some medical imaging over the past year or so. I recently had an MRI, and they gave me a CD with the image files. OsiriX was great way for me to study the images. It worked superbly in 2-d and 3-d modes, and has many useful and intuitive features.

    I haven't used other programs of a similar nature, but this one worked so very well for me that I didn't have any motivation to look elsewhere.

    "The best by far"

    August 25, 2005  |   By stam66

    Version: OsiriX 2.0

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    The continously expanding feature set and stability of this software exceeds it's commercial rivals by a factor of 10 at least, and it's clearly one of the better opensource applications for existence as well as one of the best Mac medical programs. I've used this extensively for clinical and researc work, and a minor glitch with echocardiograms was quickly corrected by a responsive author (thanks Antoine!).
    There is nothing out there (on windows either AFAIK), which even comes close, particularly for freeware. Higly recommended.

    "Very, very nice"

    August 16, 2005  |   By pdsi

    Version: OsiriX 1.7.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    OsiriX is useful for just about any set of images. If I had one wish, that would be for DICOM Print. Outstanding software.
