What is a DCM file?
A DCM file is an image file saved in the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) image format. It stores a medical image, such as a CT scan or ultrasound. DCM files may also include patient information to pair the image with the patient.
The DICOM format was created by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) as a standard for distributing and viewing medical images, such as MRIs, CT scans, and ultrasound images. You can open DICOM files with a variety of programs for Windows, macOS, and Linux, such as XnViewMP, GIMP, and MeVisLab.
NOTE: DCM files may also be saved as .DICOM files.
