Hi Francesco,

Flair is trying to check the consistency of the CT slices, if all of them have the same thickness and the reported location corresponds to the correct one calculated from the slice thickness.
In the output window you will see a list of the Z location of the slices and the problematic location. Now either there is a numerical problem or your dicom has a variable thickness something that cannot be converted to FLUKA voxels (at least for the moment) which expects same thickness everywhere.

Which this problem, the current dataset cannot be longer processed. (The message displayed is wrong.)

Best Regards

Subject: error in Dicom importation

Dear FLUKA users
I am trying to import Dicom CT files in flair through the apposite section, having installed pydicom.
I know that this is a in development feature of flair, but I would just like to know if I am making some mistake, or if it is just a program bug.
In fact, when i select the folder to import, flair scans the files quickly with no apparent errors. Anywat, when i switch to the "2. Voxel" tab, flair scans slowly the files, ending with an error message: "Error slice is missing. Location z=.."
if I then try to obtain the voxel file via the button, i get as a worning "please select a DICOM dataset and clck on "update information" first" (and i don't see anywhere this option!)

Thanks in advance
