EMV 5 for Macintosh

EMV 5 is the latest version of Escape's medical (DICOM) viewer, anonymizer and converter. A native 64-bit Cocoa application, EMV 5 combines powerful features with intuitiveness, elegance and ease of use.

  • opens DICOM and common images (JPG, TIFF, etc);
  • connects to PACS and DICOM servers to retrieve studies (DICOM Query/Retrieve client);
  • multi-series, multi-frame visualization of images;
  • allows for image geometry manipulation and color adjustment;
  • has handy tools for defining ROIs, performing calibrated measurements, removing sensitive information from pixels, etc;
  • anonymizes DICOM datasets;
  • exports images to a variety of still and movie formats;
  • can create DICOMDIR for a collection of user-picked DICOM images;
  • uploads DICOM images to PACS and DICOM servers (DICOM Send client);
  • has a beautiful, intuitive, user-centric interface, that works the way you expect.

At a glance


  • 64-bit application: increased robustness and compatibility with new Macs (Mac OS X El Capitan or later).
  • Full-screen viewing and multi-monitor support
  • Printing to any connected system printer

DICOM communications

  • Query/Retrieve SCU: query DICOM servers to retrieve studies.
  • Send SCU: send DICOM images to DICOM servers.
  • Servers list: define DICOM servers you usually work with.


  • Multi-series display of up to 4 sequences or clips in many predefined arrangements.
  • Multi-frame display (series, clips, sequences) in freely defined grid.
  • User-controlled display of demographics, DICOM overlays, reference lines.
  • Magnification loupe: appears while pressing [Shift] for instant magnification with user-controlled size and zoom factor.
  • Extraction of localizers if found in the same series as the slices (to allow usage in multi-series display).
  • Automatic splitting of multiphase MR and CT datasets (manual splitting and rejoining is also available).
  • Reference lines when more images belonging to the same frame of reference are displayed simultaneously (not limited to designated localizers).
  • Alternative colorizations of grayscale and color images.
  • Handling of non-square pixels.
  • Manual calibration: define the real-world size of pixels manually.
  • User-controlled marking: creates a marked set that allows for selective traversing, anonymizing, exporting, propagation, and more.
  • Cine with autoplay, traverse, user-defined frame rate, and time-vector support.
  • Powerful propagation mechanism: copies all adjustments to sequence, series, study, patient, all patients, marked set.
  • DICOM data browser.

User objects and measurements

  • User objects: measurements, textual annotations, arrows
  • Eraser: turn any rectangle into an eraser to remove burnt-in information (commonly used with US clips).
  • Density measurement in Hounsfield units, where applicable.
  • Calibrated US measurements when calibrated regions are present.

Batch conversions

  • Multiple jobs can run independently of one another in the background.
  • Export jobs pane allows for inspection of the status of all export sessions.
  • Export to images or movies: frame, sequence, series, study, patient, all patients, marked items. Invoke built-in Profiles or personalize by creating your own for flexibility and speed.
  • Export to DICOM: mark specific sequences and copy them to a folder, optionally with matching DICOMDIR, ready for burning to a DICOM CD, or other use.
  • Anonymize: file, sequence, series, study, patient, all patients, marked set.
  • Export DICOM data: file, sequence, series, study, patient, all patients, marked set.
