Issue Details

I am using the Read Image function provided by the Biomedical Toolkit in LabVIEW. However, when I try to open my dcm (DICOM) image, I get the following error: 

I am able to see this image using other third-party software so I know that my image is fine. How can I solve this problem?


This problem has been observed with high-resolution DICOM images. If you are using an image with a size higher than 4096*4096 you will get this error message. Please reduce your image size to a height and width smaller than that limit.
