Viewing MRI CD on mac

I got a CD with my shoulder MRI from my doctor, but it won't open on my Mac. Is there a program to open or convert this so I can view it? Thanks for any help.

Have you looked in the folders for any sort of image files? It looks like it's some autorun and Windows executable that just pulls the images otherwise.

There's these, but the gif wouldn't open in preview so I don't know what to do.

You'll need Windows

I do research involving MRIs and on my Mac at work, my University bought me a $9000 program (and that was the academic price). However, you can get MRI viewers for Windows for free.

Usually the image will have the software on the CD to view it. I would presume it is for windows only. Put it in a windows computer. Don't bother trying to download other viewers as it probably needs its own software.

OsiriX works great. Thanks for the link.

I use Osirix frequently to view MRI, CT and plain X-ray films.
I ALWAYS have to IMPORT the image files.
Is there a way to have these autoboot?
Also, I find that at times the resolution on some of the MRI slices is less than it should be. Is there a way to increase this?

Thanks

Steve

Thank You

I cannot help the last poster (hopefully it is OBE, by now), but I wanted to post that based on stoneage's note that OsiriX worked well to read his MRI CD I downloaded the free version for mine. It did, indeed, work immediately and well. It also automatically read and managed the CD for my old fashioned X-rays.

I am grateful to the person (I think it was "theanswer") who first suggested this application. I plan to let my doctor's office know about it so they can advise their Mac-using clients of it.

I should add Peace and drsarbe to the list of those to thank.

As far as some sort of application to open these, I have no idea but I work at a University Hospital and we give patients copies of their radiology studies on cd's all day long. These images are DICOM, which means they need the DICOM viewer-this is on the CD already and works if you have a Windows based PC. Our instructions for the disc clearly state they are not viewable on Apple computers.

I had a CAT scan and they gave me the disc which of course was windows only, so I found a friend at the public library who let me use one of their systems to view the CAT scan. It worked, but unfortunately looking at the scan didn't tell me anything. You need more than just viewing the scan to make sense out of it.

Great info. I have MS and always have to wait till i go to work to use a PC to look at my MRI to find out if there are any new brain lesions.

Here’s a cross-platform MRI viewer:

It’s simpler and smaller in size than OsiriX.

you can view your x-rays directly in your web browser using Jack Imaging. no downloads required!

1. go to http://jackimaging.com/demo
2. drag & drop the files from your CD to the box to load the files
3. after loaded, click "View"

here are a couple of additional links:
