Perhaps. In an earlier post I mentioned using POV-Ray (v3.8 preferably)
as a viewer for high depth (>8 bit per channel) images because it
dithers the preview screen. Look in povray.unofficial.patches for a post
about a pgm depth map patch. At the bottom of that post is code for a >8
bit pgm POV-Ray viewer which could be modified for png or whatever.
I expect there are some image viewers that can internally dither >8 bit
depths before display, but I've not run across one (I'm on linux/rasbian
Various external image manipulation tools can dither >8 bits too.
If you want to view images in typical web/display environments, I
suspect you'll get better, non-banding results with 8 bit dithered
