DICOM image file batch convert.


Convert numerous image files (DICOM format) into png (or whatever).

I have done:
Wrote a script using convert (Imagemagick).

What happened:
Some of them go well. Some do not. Entire black square shows up. No error message shows up.

I have found:
The ones which fails, display (imagemagick) also shows black square. Gimp can open, save as png. (Macintosh Graphic Converter also). But I have not found the way to batch convert. has several similar threads. They say "send these files to them" to reproduce problem. It is impossible for privacy reason.

My system:
Debian Lenny

Does anybody have a good idea?

Happy Penguins!

Must be a problem with imagemagick. If GIMP works try a batch processing plugin:

Not sure if this supports it, but try:
based on imagemagick, but less buggy (usually)

For the record David's Batch Processor is available for Debian in the gimp-plugin-registry package.

You can also do batch processing directly from the command line.
