LEADTOOLS Medical Imaging Suite
  • Document SDK
    • New Searchable Document Redaction
      The .NET and HTML5/JavaScript Document Viewers now support redaction of searchable documents. Not only can users redact sensitive information in image formats such as TIFF, but they can redact PDF, DOCX, and other document formats to control what is visible and searchable by other users. To comply with regulatory requirements such as GDPR and HIPAA, the redaction can be applied when the document is viewed or converted while keeping the other parts of the document intact.
    • Document Library and Annotation Updates
      LEAD’s Document Viewer team expanded PDF Annotation support with the addition of new objects and properties that include Redaction, Note reply, Callout, leader, and line endings. For developers requiring a cross-platform solution, all Annotation support has been extended to the .NET Core and Xamarin libraries. In addition, initial viewing options and smart pagination functionality have been added. The Document Service has also been enhanced to support multi-tenancy and PDF Fast Web View.
    • Expanded Document Formats in Linux and MacOS
      LEAD has expanded its support of Microsoft Office formats with Linux and MacOS native libraries. Also, LEADTOOLS is now leveraging the WebKit browser engine to handle HTML files on Linux and MacOS systems to ensure the resulting output is exactly what the user expects.
  • Medical SDK
    • 3D Volume Rendering in Zero-Footprint Medical Web Viewer
      In addition to a new dark theme UI option, the Zero-footprint Medical Web Viewer now fully supports 3D volume rendering. Previously only available in the .NET Medical Viewer for Windows, high-quality customizable VRT, MIP, and MPR projections can be rendered on a server and transmitted to a client using a modern web browser. This true zero-footprint solution does not require browser plugins, desktop utilities, or remote desktop clients such as Citrix.
    • Upgraded DICOM Communication and PACS Security
      LEAD updated the DICOM Communication and PACS SDK components to use a plug-in type architecture for Transport Layer Security (TLS). This change future-proofs the SDK and ensures that developers using LEADTOOLS can always be up to date with the latest TLS updates. The DICOM Storage Server and Medical Workstation now use the latest encryption, including support for the TLS 1.2 cipher suites as recommended in part 15 of the latest DICOM Standard. The DICOM Storage Server also includes many new features, such as configurable security settings for both incoming and outgoing messages, the ability to specify role selection for all DIMSE services and per individual storage IOD, improved client management for large organizations supporting more than 10,000 users, support for long user names, and the ability to store and search all DICOM dataset elements.
  • Xamarin
    • Xamarin Camera Control
      Developers writing cross-platform mobile applications now have the LEADTOOLS Xamarin Camera Control in their arsenal. This Xamarin.Forms control is intended to be used specifically for Xamarin.Forms applications. Utilizing the camera is one of the biggest headaches in Xamarin app development, requiring writing of complex native code for Android and iOS. With just one line of code to add the control, developers can quickly get started with a basic camera and preview. LEAD’s camera control supports image capture, video recording, flash, torch, and focus control. Developers can also tap into the live camera feed to add custom image processing or LEADTOOLS features, including OCR, barcode recognition, and image processing filters.
    • Xamarin Image Viewer
      LEAD has updated its LEADTOOLS Xamarin libraries to include an image viewer control to view more than 150 different file formats, including multipage functionality. The new image viewer control provides touchscreen-optimized interactive modes, navigation tools, and full LEADTOOLS Annotation support.
