DICOM loading times and 32-bit vs. 64-bit comparison

We've performed DICOM loading tests on several RadiAnt DICOM Viewer versions.
See the results on our Google+ page: https://plus.google.com/115855925635079303659/posts/3ZR6U3h5z6V
Hopefully these improvements also show in real-life use ;-)

impressive. however loading 150K DICOMs is not something very common in routine work and not exerybody has such an hi-performance PC.

I suggest to to the same test on a smaller dataset, let's say 3000 DICOMs (which is a whole body CT scan with thin slices and multiphasic exam) on an average laptop, to show how real life radologists with unexpensive hardware may do their day-to-day work with RadiAnt.

You're right, this kind of torture test is very unlikely to be performed by a regular user. However, for our testing/debugging purposes it serves very well to show improvements in the DICOM core of RadiAnt.

In normal use, most likely the drive speed (be it CD/DVD or HDD) will be the limiting factor. Next time we'll do some testing on a slower machine.
