XYZ point cross reference correlation

probably this has already been asked before, however I can't find the old thread.

some DICOM softwares has this nice feature that shows you the position of a selected point
of an image in the other planes thanks to a double cross reference line.

this allows exact XYZ correlation of a point of interest in all imaging planes.

actually RadiAnt just shows a single cross reference line which allows biplanar correlation

yes, there were comments about a cross hair 3D cursor in that beta release thread.

now we have a dedicated thread about this feature request

You will have double cross-reference lines in the oblique MPR window.
Some time later we will add a 3D cursor tool to the standard 2D viewer to be used with different series of the same study.

just a gentle reminder about the 3D cursor.
it is very useful when you have dorsal spine MRI and you have to count the vertebral bodies from a cervical spine localizer

Hello. previously has been asked to add a XYZ cross line reference or 3D Cursor.
When will you add this very important feature?
Another important think would be to be able to transform Dicom directly in tiff format as it is possible with Osirix and cut the images when you save them.
This is important for pubvlications as most paper want the images in this format.

Thank you,

+1 about .tiff
anyway it's better to open a separate topic about requests that are unrelated to the original thread

Alessandra, thanks for your feedback. We'll see what can be done about the export to the TIFF format. As for the 3D cursor, no time frame at this moment...
