Question DICOM example question 

Forum: Medical Applications
Date: 27 Nov, 2012
From: Sam Blake <Sam Blake>

Hi everyone,

I just have a question regarding the DICOM example. I am able to compile and run the example just fine with my own set of 140 dicom image files, but only when I specify a compression factor of 32 in my Data.dat file. Each image is 512x512 pixels, so giving a compression factor of 32 effectively down-samples each image slice to just 16x16 pixels in the phantom geometry.

When I try specifying a smaller compression factor (e.g. 16, 8, etc...), the application successfully re-creates all of the .g4dcm and .g4dcmb files, however I get a seg fault when the geometry is being built (I think during the ReadPhantomDataFile function).

I was just wondering if anyone else has encountered this - I dont know if it's perhaps related to the large number of dicom files I'm using?

Thanks in advance for any help! Sam
