gdcmviewer [options] file-in
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).
file-in DICOM input filename
--force-rescale force rescale (advanced users) --force-spacing force spacing (advanced users) -r --recursive Recusively descend directory
-h --help print this help text and exit -v --version print version information and exit -V --verbose verbose mode (warning+error). -W --warning warning mode, print warning information -E --error error mode, print error information -D --debug debug mode, print debug information
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.
