Hi Pedro,

The vtkDICOMImageReader is an old class, nobody is maintaining it,
and it does not provide a vtkMedicalImageProperties instance.

I recommend trying vtk-dicom (https://github.com/dgobbi/vtk-dicom/),
it has a dicom reader that provides full access to all meta-data, as well
as vtkMedicalImageProperties for the files that it reads.  It also has some
pdf documentation (not yet complete), and a small number of examples.
(I'm biased, of course, because I wrote it :-)
