Dear RPML,
Have I wandered into uncharted territory very close to home? :-)
I was working with Imageware before it became part of SDRC, which call it I-DEAS Freeform. It is a powerful system and likely to be quite expensive though I do not at this time now how much it sells for.

Both packages you mention are certainly candidates for this area. Materialise Mimics' suite of software is the industry standard, but probably more like $30,000 ( You might also look into a program called Analyze ( We do this type of work all the time, let me know if we can be of any assistance.

    Dear RPML,

        Is there a source for evaluations, reviews or critiques of software for Medical Imaging and RP?

        So far I have identified two different programs that appear to do what I need.
      a.. Velocity 2 Pro from Image3, LLC. $4,955
      b.. 3D-DOCTOR from Abel Software Corp. $4,800
    I am particularly interested in being able to use MRI scan data in the DICOM 3 format.

    Best Regards
