What do you mean 'it is difficult' ? 
- Does the program crash ? 
- The image appears black ? 
- Does the program hangs ?

- Which DICOM reader are you using ?
vtkDICOMImageReader only read non compress DICOM images. 
vtkGDCMReader read a lot more image, but this is not part of VTK:


There might be some other option I don't know of.

BTW ITK (http://www.itk.org) integrate gdcm version 0.6
