New releases for Accusoft's ImageGear Imaging Toolkit
AccuSoft Corp. released new versions of its ImageGear Imaging Toolkit -- ImageGear Professional V14 and ImageGear MD V14.

ImageGear MD is specifically designed for developers creating medical applications. The release adds support to V14 for the DICOM standard's presentation state (PS) objects. When used within a DICOM file, PS objects allow for the consistent display of images on various devices and media, storage of specific settings for display, and storage of annotations and additional tags such as patient/study/series information, said Accusoft.

Also included in ImageGear MD V14 is the ability to read 1-bit DICOM files, which assists in the exchange of scanned documents and hand-written notes as part of a DICOM study.

ImageGear Professional V14 features content editing capabilities for Adobe PDF files, in addition to enhanced document font support and text extraction for PDF files, said Accusoft. Support for both Captiva's Image and Scanner Interface Specification (ISIS) enterprise-level interface and the TWAIN 1.9 standard has also been added.

ImageGear Professional V14 also incorporates a range of functionality via the ScanSoft OmniPage Capture SDK, including a new scalable voting architecture that provides developers with two pre-made voting interfaces, along with direct access to three OCR engines, said Accusoft.
