Hi Corina,

For Reading and Writing DICOM images please refer to
the ITK Software Guide:


Section 7.12 "Reading and Writing Dicom Images" in pdf-page 326.

For instructions on how to crop an image, simply use the


As described in Section 7.6 "Extracting Regions" in pdf-page 304.

Your pipeline should look like

  ImageSeriesReader -> RegionOfInterestFilter -> ImageSeriesWriter

NOTE: That you *MUST* retouch the values of some of the tags
in the MetaDataDictionary to make sure that they reflect the
new parameters of the output image. You will find recent discussion
about that issue in the mailing list.
