Open Rib

The Open Rib application is image analysis software for chest CT images. The application offers a visualization of the unfolded rib cage that allows a physician to instantly view the full rib anatomy and should be used as an additional view in adjunct to conventional multiplanar reformat views. Open Rib offers geometric and HU measurement tools. In addition to standard CT projections, the Open Rib application can also display the unfolded rib view in both SVR and Global Illumination.
