ohif-viewer is a zero-footprint medical image viewer provided by the Open Health Imaging Foundation (OHIF). It is a configurable and extensible progressive web application with out-of-the-box support for image archives which support DICOMweb.
ATTENTION: If you are looking for Version 1 (the Meteor Version) of this repository, it lives on the
Building a web based medical imaging viewer from scratch is time intensive, hard to get right, and expensive. Instead of re-inventing the wheel, you can use the OHIF Viewer as a rock solid platform to build on top of. The Viewer is a React Progressive Web Application that can be embedded in existing applications via it's packaged source (ohif-viewer) or hosted stand-alone. The Viewer exposes configuration and extensions to support workflow customization and advanced functionality at common integration points.
If you're interested in using the OHIF Viewer, but you're not sure it supports your use case check out our docs. Still not sure, or you would like to propose new features? Don't hesitate to create an issue or open a pull request.
This readme is specific to testing and developing locally. If you're more interested in production deployment strategies, you can check out our documentation on publishing.

Using Cypress to create End-to-End tests and check whether the application flow is performing correctly, ensuring that the integrated components are working as expected.
Cypress is a next generation front end testing tool built for the modern web. With Cypress is easy to set up, write, run and debug tests
It allow us to write different types of tests:
- End-to-End tests
- Integration tests
- Unit tets
All tests must be in
Commands to run the tests:

Large portions of the Viewer's functionality are maintained in other repositories. To get a better understanding of the Viewer's architecture and "where things live", read our docs on the Viewer's architecture
It is notoriously difficult to setup multiple dependent repositories for end-to-end testing and development. That's why we recommend writing and running unit tests when adding and modifying features. This allows us to program in isolation without a complex setup, and has the added benefit of producing well-tested business logic.

When creating tests, place the test file "next to" the file you're testing. For example:
// Fileindexjs// Test for fileindextestjs
As you add and modify code,
jest will watch for uncommitted changes and run
your tests, reporting the results to your terminal. Make a pull request with
your changes to
master, and a core team member will review your work. If you
have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out via a GitHub issue.
Looking to contribute? Look for the Good First Issue label.
Please file an issue for bugs, missing documentation, or unexpected behavior.
💡 Feature Requests
Please file an issue to suggest new features. Vote on feature requests by adding a 👍. This helps maintainers prioritize what to work on.
For questions related to using the library, please visit our support community, or file an issue on GitHub.
If you want to know what's planned for the very near future, check out our roadmap. The best way to influence when and what is worked on is to contribute to the conversation by creating GitHub issues, and contributing code through pull requests. OHIF's high level priorities for the near future are:
- Feature parity with version 1
- Extension and configuration improvements with key integration partners
- Continued Developer Experience Improvements
- Segmentation Tools, and improved VTK.js support
More granular information will make it's way to the backlog as these items become scoped for development by core maintainers.
Don't hesitate to ask questions, propose features, or create pull requests. We're here, we're listening, and we're ready to build the best open source medical imaging viewer on the web.
