FusionViewer is an open source medical image display package developed by Insightful Corporation and the Imaging Research Laboratory at University of Washington.[citation needed]

The software allows the display and fusion of multimodal data sets.[1], and is designed to facilitate and improve visualization.[citation needed]

Applications[edit]

The software is designed to improve the physician's ability to interpret the results of combined positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) studies.[2] The effective display of the fused data permits easy viewing of the anatomical information provided by the CT images while simultaneously displaying the functional data provided by PET.[citation needed]

It has previously been noted that FusionViewer allows a multi-modal approach where suppliers of Medical imaging equipment may concentrated on the particular modality of their equipment.[3]

FusionViewer is released under the GNU GPL v2.[4]
