Abstract: Recently the possibility to visualize interactively volumetric datasets in the Web has opened new methods of exploration and sharing of 3D images coming from different fields. At the same time, VR technologies are gaining momentum in the society, where several HMD’s are ready to be bought. This paper presents how volumetric datasets represented as DICOM images can be loaded and visualized interactively in a WebVR compatible setup. DICOM images are loaded from local or remote repositories into X3D volume rendering nodes, which are displayed in the VR devices using WebVR technology. The results show that WebVR and X3D are compatible web technologies that can be joined together to provide easy and extensible tools to interact with DICOM datasets. Some enhancements for the interactive VR and non-VR experiences are presented.
