RadiAnt DICOM Viewer 1.7.3 BETA

This time we have a few under-the-hood improvements. They result in significant reduction of CD/DVD loading times. See this chart:
There are also further refinements in large multi-frame files handling (previous version could hang when browsing such files).
Last but not least, we fixed a problem with opening zip files that have non-standard characters in a filename (thanks Tommy!).

Let us know if you feel the difference while loading studies directly from CD/DVD media.

I forgot about a new command-line parameter that was asked for:


it closes all running instances of RadiAnt DICOM Viewer (handy if you run the viewer from other software with predefined image set and want only one RadiAnt window).

tested with a 318 MB CD-ROM containging 1742 DICOM files.
loading time is:

- 3'15'' with 1.71 beta
- 1'02'' with 1.73 beta

RadiAnt is the "Usain Bolt" of DICOM readers!!!

Tommy, there were some improvements in 1.7.1 version as well, so I'm not sure if your test is accurate (pretty big difference). Did you restart the computer before testing a CD for the second time? If not, then it may have been read from cache.
For the test to be accurate please reboot the computer after reading a CD in one version (I recommend testing 1.1.8 vs. 1.7.3).

you are right... the 2nd try was that fast because of cache read.

retried after reboot and real loading times are:

- 3'15'' with 1.71 beta
- 2'56'' with 1.73 beta

which is still a 19" improvement from 1.71

We found a bug that potentially could make RadiAnt stop responding during intensive browsing and exporting images at the same time. It's fixed in 1.7.5 BETA:

Another small update today - 1.7.6 BETA:
We added a detection of CD/DVD/Flash removal. This should remedy problems with opening consecutive CDs without restarting RadiAnt.
