       dcm_map_to_8 - map original pixel data (10, 12 bit) to 8 bit


       dcm_map_to_8 [-b] [-v] [-W width] [-C center] input output


       dcm_map_to_8 reads one DICOM image (monochrome) and maps the pixel data
       to 8 bits. It does  this  by  applying  window  width,  window  center,
       rescale  slope,  and  rescale intercept values found in the information
       object.  The user can override the window width and  center  values  by
       supplying different values as command line arguments.


       dcm_map_to_8 accepts the following options:

       -b              Read  input  file  assuming  the data is stored in big-
                       endian byte order

       -v              Place DCM facility in verbose mode

       -W width        Override window width with this value

       -C center       Override window center with this value
