i've just received a CD with DICOM images, which were probably produced
on a Windows machine. When i opened the DicomDir, i could see the
enclosed study and all of the series within. But i couldn't open the

To find out, what's wrong, i started aeskulap again from console (with
command aeskulap). I saw the error messages 'can't
open .../DICOMDAT/SDY00000/SRS00000/IMG00000' etc. On CD the files are
named in lower case. On Windows/DOS this makes no difference, but on
Linux / Unix it does!

So i had to copy the relevant files to harddrive and rename all folders
and files to upper case (no big deal with tunar :-) and everything
worked fine.

Of course this is a bug in the producing Windows program. Maybe it will
be a userfriendly enhancement, to check the filenames in both variants?

Like to hear your opinion!
