RadiAnt to view CT data for circuit board

Hello, I suspect RadiAnt to be the viewer I will need to view our CT images of circuit boards we are building; but I can't make it rotate / scalpel; it stays in 2D mode with the 3D button dimmed out. We need to be able to view the solder voids in 3D to determine how to adjust our manufacturing process.

I get raw files from the CT and use gdcmimg to create a dcm file but I suspect the program isn't writing headers in a way that RadiAnt sees it is a volumetric file.

Is there anything I can tweak in the dcm creation process or in RadiAnt?

A much simpler dcm viewer does view the slices and creates a 3D image but it doesn't have all the features RadiAnt does.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike,

Thank you for providing the sample files.
They were missing spatial information necessary for RadiAnt to run series in 3D viewers.

Sample values are shown below:

(0020,0032) DS -101.700\-172.600\-130.500 # 3, 26 Image Position (Patient)
(0020,0037) DS 1.0\0.0\0.0\0.0\1.0\0.0 # 6, 54 Image Orientation (Patient)
(0028,0030) DS 0.488281\0.488281 # 2, 18 Pixel Spacing
