In order to fit the different clinical needs for processing special images from variety of imaging modalities (US, MRI, NM), the PACS viewer should have been developed respectively. In this paper we present a modern object-oriented component object model (COM) technology to develop PACS viewer. The application is split into framework and components based on functionality. They can be developed independently and reused in different systems [1]. According to different usage, we can assemble the application by integrating different pre-built reusable components seamlessly into the framework. Due the open architecture of application, its functions can be extended. PACS viewer will be custom designed as required using this reusable technology that will optimize cost, final design and speed up the development.
