Typical usage

Simple usage

       For now gdcmviewer should be started from a command line prompt. The
       next argument should be the name of the DICOM file you wish to read.
       For instance:

        $ gdcmviewer -V 012345.002.050.dcm

       gdcmviewer will try to read your file, and the print the vtk
       information associated with this file. Basically what kind of image you
       are looking at.

       o ScalarType is the DICOM Real World Value type
       o Dimensions is the dimension of the image
       o Spacing is the spacing of the image
       o NumberOfScalarComponents should be 1 for grayscale & PALETTE COLOR
         and 3 for RGB, YBR data.
