if (image != NULL)
if (image->getStatus() == EIS_Normal)
Uint8 *pixelData = (Uint8 *)(image->getOutputData(8 /* bits per sample */));

/* do something useful with the pixel data */
} else
cerr << "Error: cannot load DICOM image (" << DicomImage::getString(image->getStatus()) << ")" << endl;
delete image;
