DICOM is a format used by medical devices to exchange images. DICAM stands for Digital Imaging and COmmunications in Medicine. Last week I had some pictures taken from my left knee. The CD with the different was delivered today. Unfortunately the installer / viewer is Microsoft Windows only.
A Google search returned “kradview” as the most promising alternative. It’s QT-based and should run fine. I’ve tried to install it both from source and from an RPM file (convert it with alien) but without any luck.
The Ubuntu repository has a package xmedcon, the GUI X Window System Medical Image Conversion Utility. It’s a basic X11 applications and doesn’t look as smooth as kradview but at least it works.
Please send to me a dump of the error to see why it did not compile. This would help me to improve it.

Ok, it should be fixed now, it the version of kradview that we have released right now.

I just used dicom2 to dump my wife’s data to multiple formats (tga, bmp, txt for meta, dicom, jpeg, png). They all look great. I before in the same day tried mricrox and ImageMagick straight with no results. This is a flat binary with no dependencies.
Thank you. Good day.
FYI, the Fiji version of ImageJ works well on Ubuntu 14.04 will the DICOM images I just got. Just google for them to download.
