DICOM viewer and converter in Debian

DICOM is a standard for your RX/CT/MRI scans and the format most of the times your result will be given to you, along with Win/MacOS viewers, but what about Debian? the best I could find is Ginkgo CADx (package ginkgocadx).

If  you want to convert those DICOM files into images you can use convert (I dont know why I was surprised to find out imagemagik can handle it).

PS: here a description of the format.

dicom3tools worked for me:-

man -k dicom | grep dcto
dctopgm8 (1) - ACR/NEMA DICOM PS3 ... DICOM PS3 - DICOM image to PNM file
dctopgx (1) - ACR/NEMA DICOM PS3 ... DICOM PS3 - DICOM image to PGX file
dctopnm (1) - ACR/NEMA DICOM PS3 ... DICOM PS3 - DICOM image to PNM file
