Often in medical imaging applications, developers need to access the pixel
values of a MRI, CT, or PET scan. We found ourselves needing this frequently
during client work and decided to open-source the solution that has worked well
for us. This library allows developers to easily reconstruct the 3D scan data
from DICOM files by returning it as a numpy
ndarray for further processing and
calculations. It is a higher-level library that builds on the excellent
lower-level pydicom library.
