Version: Version 3.2 - Cornerstone3D Volume API 🚧

Release Notes

New OHIF-v3 architecture has made OHIF a general purpose extensible medical imaging platform, as opposed to a configurable viewer.

What's new in OHIF-v3

OHIF-v3 is our second try for a React-based viewer, and is the third version of our medical image web viewers from the start. The summary of changes includes:

  • Addition of workflow modes
    • Often, medical imaging use cases involves lots of specific workflows that re-use functionalities. We have added the capability of workflow modes, that enable people to customize user interface and configure application for specific workflow.
    • The idea is to re-use the functionalities that extensions provide and create a workflow. Brain segmentation workflow is different from prostate segmentation in UI for sure; however, they share the segmentation tools that can be re-used.
    • Our vision is that technical people focus of developing extensions which provides core functionalities, and experts to build modes by picking the appropriate functionalities from each extension.
    • Migrated all the cornerstone-core and cornerstone-tools usage to the newly released Cornerstone3D.
  • UI has been completely redesigned with modularity and workflow modes in mind.
  • New UI components have been built with Tailwind CSS
  • Redux store has been removed from the viewer in favour of services backed by React's Context API
