As the standard especially for the storage and transmission of medical images, the standard of Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) is popular to the people of the world. And as a result, almost all the outputs of the computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR), digital subtraction angiography (DSA) and ultrasonography (US) are saved as DICOM format. However, the DICOM format files can be opened by the original programs of windows OS, which is not convenient with the further research in image processing. The paper mainly does some research in the conversion from DICOM format files into general image/ media files. The procedure is to convert DICOM format files into bitmaps and then convert the bitmaps into other general image/ media files. The images then can be viewed directly by the original programs of Windows OS, which will facilitate the further researches on image process. The DICOM format files can be displayed while being converted; the images displayed can also be done with some further operations, such as the process of lightness and contrast gradient of image, image filtering and segmentation.
