In order to provide the best use of our toolkits by a variety of developers, they are normally licensed on a per-copy basis, avoiding the need for a high initial charge. It may therefore be downloaded and evaluated for a period of up to 60 days, without charge or obligation

Our licensing packages can be tailored to different applications and market sectors.

The majority of the users of DicomObjects and XdsObjects are commercial developers, writing applications which they then in turn sell to their own customers. The licensing model is designed to accommodate such users by eliminating the initial outlay often associated with specialist programming tools. As a result, DicomObjects is available free to bonafide commercial developers, who then only pay for copies actually distributed to their customers. All ancillary uses such as development and demonstration are allowed free, as they are of mutual interests of Medical Connections and the developer.

If you qualify as a genuine commercial developer, please complete, sign and return the following Commercial Developer Agreement. In return you will receive a free developer licence which will last for 2 years .
