This Is Your Brain on Open Source

Last week I had to get a CT scan of my head. I asked for a copy and the hospital gave it to me on a disk.

When I mounted it on my Ubuntu desktop and tried to open the image I got an error “No Application for Opening DICOM Images”.

But what I loved was that it offered to find a program that could. Within a minutes I had Ginkgo CADx installed and was looking at my skull.

Open Source FTW.
