Nowadays, there is a huge variety of Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) software tools. Some of these tools can only display DICOM images and some other offer additional features, such as volume rendering and options for further digital processing and analysis. Other published research in the area offer a detailed description of the software functions but not an evaluation of these tools as software applications. This paper evaluates four, freely available and open source DICOM tools focusing on different aspects. The software tools compared are: Eviewbox, GIMIAS, ImageJ and MITK 3M3. The scores resulted from the evaluation are illustrated in four diagrams, one developed for every software tool, which demonstrate the variation in scores. The software tool that has received the highest rating is ImageJ.
