Summary0004409: CT images acquired with gantry tilt are loaded incorrectly

CT images acquired with gantry tilt are loaded incorrectly, probably the gantry tilt information is ignored. The image appears to be warped.

See for example this discussion:

Workaround: use a tool that can convert gantry-tilted DICOM to rectified image files. For example: dicomtonifti tool. Download from here:

Potential implementation: use vtkDICOM classes.

TagsNo tags attached.

Target is 4.9, then if it is stable enough, it could be backported to the 4.8 maintenance branch.
