About

Our Mission

Horos is a free, open source medical image viewer.  The goal of the Horos Project is to develop a fully functional, 64-bit medical image viewer for OS X.  Horos is based upon OsiriX and other open source medical imaging libraries.  Horos is made available under the GNU Lesser General Public License, Version 3 (LGPL-3.0).

Origin of our Name

The Horos Project is named after the egyptian god Horus, son of Osiris and Isis.  Horos, a freely available medical image viewer, is based on OsiriX, named after Osiris.  We like egyptian and greek mythology!  We chose the greek translation for this project.
