NAME

       gdcmviewer - Simple DICOM viewer.

SYNOPSIS

           gdcmviewer [options] file-in

DESCRIPTION

       The gdcmviewer is a simple tool that show how to use vtkGDCMImageReader. The class that
       use gdcm to make a layer to VTK.  gdcmviewer is basically only just a wrapper around
       VTK/GDCM.

       This tool is meant for testing integration of GDCM in VTK. You should see it as a demo
       tool. It does compile with VTK ranging from 4.2 to 5.10, but only with VTK 5.2 (or above)
       can play with the widgets (as described below).

PARAMETERS

           file-in   DICOM input filename

TYPICAL USAGE

SIMPLE USAGE

       For now gdcmviewer should be started from a command line prompt. The next argument should
       be the name of the DICOM file you wish to read. For instance:

           $ gdcmviewer -V 012345.002.050.dcm

       gdcmviewer will try to read your file, and then print the vtk information associated with
       this file. Basically what kind of image you are looking at.

       ·   ScalarType is the DICOM Real World Value type

       ·   Dimensions is the dimension of the image

       ·   Spacing is the spacing of the image

       ·   NumberOfScalarComponents should be 1 for grayscale & PALETTE COLOR and 3 for RGB, YBR
           data.
