Description From 2009-09-13 19:22:38
DICOM is a standard for handling, storing, printing, and transmitting
information in medical imaging. -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DICOM

There are free viewers for it, e.g. MRicron from the list at
http://www.sph.sc.edu/comd/rorden/dicom.html#links , which I managed to
download from http://student.agh.edu.pl/~bauer/ (the downloads from other sites
were interrupted before completion). The binary works, but although it's stated
that it is open-source, I saw no sources in the archive.

Another free tool for DICOM which has been discused in relation to ALT is
mentioned here:
http://lists.altlinux.org/pipermail/sisyphus/2008-November/335570.html .

ImageMagick's "convert" accepts the DICOM format (the image files), but
conversion to PNG gives black images, so presumably it doesn't work. (I managed
to convert the images to PNG by using MRicron.)

A link from http://www.sph.sc.edu/comd/rorden/workshop/mricron/source.html is
broken but mricron.zip is easily googlable: I've just downloaded
http://www.nitrc.org/frs/download.php/893/mricron.zip linked from

Would you mind packaging it yourself or prefer me to package it for you?  I
guess you're more than adequate maintainer for things you're interested in, and
I probably won't use DICOM.

Notifying ImageMagick (or GraphicsMagick) upstream of issues with conversion
might be worthy too.
