I have tried to download the images but there is a message displaying ‘file not supported’. How can I download them?

If you are unable to open and download your images, you may need to download a special program called MicroDicom. This can be downloaded here: https://www.microdicom.com

After downloading and installing this program, you are able to drag the ZIP file that contains your images into this program and view them.
