Dear Francesca,

DICOM is still in experimental state in flair. However this problem is fixed on the SVN version of flair, which will be quite soon be released as 1.1-0

Subject: Flair dicom reader

Dear Fluka and Flair users,

I am trying to open some dicom files with the new dicom reader in Flair, but I receive the following error:

AttributeError: Dataset does not have attribute 'InstitutionName'.

It looks like that if the dicom files have no Institution name in the header, then Flair has problems in open them. Is this correct? If it is, is there a way to bypass this step, my dicoms are not produced by usual CT scanners and could be that some info in the header is not complete.

Thanks in advance
