Yes, parameterisation is a much better way to go than using many little G4Boxes.

However, you should probably use something more sophisiticated than a simple parameterisation.

Better approaches for DICOM include either:

1) NestedParameterizaton

or

2) the newer, still somewhat experimental (just since many of us have not yet tried it) G4RegularNavigation

For either of these issues, start by looking for information in the Medical Applications Forum. You are not the first person to work on DICOM issues for Geant4, and while there is still much room for improvement, you will find many other users interested in sharing their thoughts in that forum.

You can also find talks from recent tutorials or colaboration meetings on these topics Just start with Google, but let me know if you get stuck and I can try to dig out more detailed references for you.
