Tips

Aliquis supports DICOM files loading if the current installation of OpenCV is at least version 3.2.0 and if it was compiled with support for GDCM.

To compile OpenCV with GDCM, please install GDCM first by following offical GDCM guides. It’s advised to build as shared libs (GDCM_BUILD_SHARED_LIBS=ON) Then compile OpenCV as usual but adding the flag WITH_GDCM=ON in cmake.

Pay attention that, in Aliquis 1, patches and stages does not support 16-bit images yet. Therefore, 16-bit DICOM images are always converted to 8-bit images just after loading with the SOURCE_IMAGE stage, with the irrecoverable loss of informations.
