Ciao Francesco,

I am using DICOM with DCMTK. The problem with visualization is that the Geant4 drivers are not meant for visualizing millions of voxels. You should opt for another approach, like visualizing 2D images of each slice (in XY, XZ or YZ). This is what I did, you can find all the code and the documentation on how to use it in GAMOS, a Geant4 framework with over 2,000 users: http://fismed.ciemat.es/GAMOS We will discuss on porting this to Geant4, but I think it is too much code for a Geant4 example....
