This QTVR (Quicktime Virtual
Reality) in-line web browser image viewimg technique is derived from the Department of Medical Informatics at UF

- Simple, WYSIWYG intuitive interface.
- Could possibly be integrated with html batch processors such as the
MTX Tool by Dr. Richard
Rathe, UF, Gainesville.
- Smooth/rapid zoom controls
- Compact, unobtrusive control panel

based web browser causes images to be well below standards for diagnostic
- Counter-intuitive image drag mechanism. Drag left - the image goes right.
- Special (Quicktime) plug-in required
- Requires a significant RAM (probably 128 MB) when viewing multiple
large image files images, otherwise the hard disk starts to grind (using
VM) and the image display procedure slows and eventually fails.
- There is no possibility to window/level, rotate, invert or perform
other common image manipulation manuevers. There are more complex web browser
based java image viewers such as Andrew Barclay's
