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
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.
