DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) is commonly used for storing medical imaging information. DICOM files contain both image data and header information. We can use the pydicom library to read and show the DICOM images. If you want to learn about computer vision, I strongly advise you to read This book.
Step 1: Install pydicom library
pip install pydicom
Step 2: Read and show DICOM Images
# Import the required modules import pydicom import matplotlib.pyplot as plt # Read the DICOM file file = pydicom.dcmread("file.dcm") # Get the image data from DICOM file data = file.pixel_array # Display the image plt.imshow(data, cmap="gray") plt.show()
