	If you are using gdcm (Utilities/gdcm), you have access to a higher 
level function, namely:

	gdcm::Header::GetImageOrientationPatient( float iop[6] )
	(cf gdcmHeader.h in ITK 2.0)

Therefore you don't even have to know the internal of the DICOM file 
format to know where to find the image orientation patient.
