SIMPLE USAGE

gdcm2pnm will take as input DICOM and render it into a bitmap file using the window/level attributes value.

$ gdcm2pnm input.dcm output.png

It is much different from the gdcmraw or gdcmimg command line tool as it will render a DICOM image. This means that the output will be rendered in 8bits ready for display.
