NAME

PDLA::IO::Dicom - a module for reading DICOM images.

DESCRIPTION

The PDLA::IO::Dicom module enables reading 16-bit gray level Dicom images into PDLA. As Dicom is an extremely complex format, this module can unfortunately not handle all different image types included in the DICOM standard. One common format that is currently not supported is the Papyrus format.

USAGE

    use PDLA;
    use PDLA::IO::Dicom;

    $img = rdcm("image.dcm");
