On the hunt for some MRI visualization software

In a very unfortunate turn of events two nights ago, I managed to tear my meniscus (bucket-handle on the lateral). After meeting with my orthopedic, he recommended an MRI to get a better idea of whether or not I will require surgery to repair it, I’ll be going in for that later on tonight. I also understand that the imaging center will give me a CD containing the images for me to bring to the doctor. I fully intend on at least viewing the images myself as opposed to the two weeks until my follow-up appointment.

Now I’m on the search for some way to visualize this data on my computer. I really have no knowledge on actual MRI data formats, so that will be my research project for today. What I would like to know, is there any great MRI visualization software for Arch? How can I view these images on my computer as a 3D model as opposed to the 2D slices I see sometimes?
