    Pixel Bender filter to process DICOM images

    Ria Flex
      I was wondering whether it would be possible to process DICOM images (used in medical)? It would be great if the high-speed processing engine of Pixel Bender would be able to change brightness/contrast of DICOM images on the fly (and visualise the result of course). Anybody any ideas?

          I don't see any reason why you couldn't use Pixel Bender to process the image if you had the right DICOM decoder (image loader). The only requirement for processing using Pixel Bender is that you need the image data in a big buffer with a < 4 channel chunky format.

          From my (limited) understanding of DICOM, the images are saved using JPEG, so what you are trying to do should be possible.
