cornerstone Web Image Loader
A cornerstone Image Loader for web images (PNG, JPEG).
View the simple image viewer built on cornerstone.
Get a packaged source file:
Or install via NPM:
npm install cornerstone-web-image-loader
Simply include the cornerstoneWebImageLoader.js in your HTML file after you load cornerstone.js and then set the cornerstone instance as an external module for cornerstoneWebImageLoader:
cornerstoneWebImageLoader.external.cornerstone = cornerstone;
This will let cornerstoneWebImageLoader register itself with cornerstone to load imageId's that have the http or https url schemes. To display an image, pass the url to the image as the imageId parameter to a cornerstone API function loadImage().
- Provides a bridge between the cornerstone library and standard web images
- Allows XHR to be hooked so custom http headers can be added (e.g. for authentication). View the source of the example to see how this is done.

Why is this a separate library from cornerstone?
Cornerstone was designed to support loading of any kind of image regardless of its container, compression algorithm, encoding or transport. This is one of many possible image loaders that can provide the image pixel data to cornerstone to display
