Do the artifacts in vtkResliceImageViewer move around when you zoom in
and out?  If so, there is something strange happening with the texture
If not, the problem is with the how VTK is processing the image.  What are
dimensions of the image?  Pixel spacing?

Since vtkResliceImageViewer uses vtkImageActor, you could try using
vtkImageActor directly to see if it produces the same artifacts.
