As for DICOM, check the archives:
You'll find many threads on reading DICOM files.
Also, check the FAQ: http://public.kitware.com/cgi-bin/vtkfaq?req=all#3.6
As for IS&C, I don't know anything about the format, but if all the
data is stored regularly at the end of the file (after a fixed length
header) vtkImageReader or a derived class with appropriate settings
can do the job. Check the examples in the Examples/Medical/Cxx dir
that comes with the VTK src for examples of how to set these flags.
