	Could you specify the ITK version you are using ? ITK 2.0 comes with 
gdcm 0.6 which read pretty much all possible DICOM implementations. The 
CVS of ITK uses gdcm 1.0 which as far as I know only add support to some 
very rare DICOM files (fragmented DICOM).

	Would it be possible that you anonymize the DICOM files and send it to 
me ? To anonymize the DICOM file you need to use tools like hexedit or 
download gdcm and build the examples (there is a DICOM anonymiser).
