eFilm Lite for Mac OS X or a freeware third party viewer to view DICOM medical images?


Does anyone know if there is an eFilm Lite software for Mac OS X (10.5.8 and 10.8.4)? One of the medical doctors gave my client a burned CD with scanned X-rays, but we were unable to read the encrypted(?) 522 KB DCIM X-Ray image(?) files [Terminal showed "file IM000000" showed "IM000000: DICOM medical imaging data" and none of Windows, Mac, and Linux can view them] and run Windows software (want to avoid installing Windows dual boot and running a virtual machine to make things more complex for him).

I was unable to find any Mac downloads on http://www.merge.com/ web site (e-mailed support@merge.com">support@merge.com and currently waiting for a reply/response [probably not until next regular short USA work week], but probably won't get a good answer). For now, I will have to extract these them in Windows XP Pro. SP3. Ugh!

Thank you in advance.

Have you tried OsiriX

For your MacBook Pro Intel running 10.5.8 an older version is also available
