Access of medical image data for viewing or surgical planning tasks is currently restricted to dedicated workstations. Increasing computation power, graphical capabilities and interaction modes of modern mobile computing devices as well as the increasing adaption of medical doctors to their usage enables the creation of a new user experience when using medical image data. In this work an application based on a standalone mobile device in which data can be accessed and downloaded from a server is presented. Data can then be visualized and surgical planning performed. A technical evaluation of the established data processing pipeline as well all the modules of the application with multiple users was performed. Results demonstrate the feasibility of the data processing pipeline, visualization of twodimensional and three-dimensional medical image data and performance of surgical planning on a mobile device with a common hardware configuration. In addition, a usability study was conducted, revealing high usability of the functions.
