You can view MRIs, CTs (also know as CAT Scans), PET scans, regular projection X-rays, and other less common types of medical scans on this site. Please let us know if you have any difficulties viewing your images—we would be happy to help.
The contrast or brightness in the DICOM image is likely very high, such that all of the pixels are all white. If you click and hold the mouse in the image and then move the cursor to the right and up, you should start to see something. See this page for more details about how this works in DICOM viewers. We realize this is not non-obvious; we made the free site to people view their scans, but haven’t had time to improve it much or make it more obvious.
You can request them from the imaging center where they were taken. Usually, you will need to pay a small fee, upon which they will give you a CD or flash drive containing your scans.
It is a good idea to keep copies of your medical scans so that you can:
Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is the standard for the communication and management of medical imaging information and related data. Nearly all medical equipment throughout the world stores and transfers medical images according to the DICOM standard. Medical images saved according to the DICOM standard are usually referred to as "DICOM files". 3D images, such as MRIs and CTs, are usually saved as a series of DICOM files, while 2D images such as projection radiographs, are saved as a single DICOM file.
