[slicer-users] Slicer volume loading issues

Hello all,

I'm very new to Slicer (, win32). I've been attempting to load MRI
volumes of various formats, with no luck. I assume I'm just doing something
wrong, but I haven't been able to solve my problem via the documentation. I
want to load my data set (I have my data in many formats) in this order of

1. Straight binary PAR/REC files from a Philips scanner; uint16, little
endian byte order, no header (this seems unrealistic ;-)
2. Directory organized image sequences (i. tiff, ii. png, iii. jpg, iv.
whatever else)
3. DICOM volumes (lower preference because I only have my earlier patient
data in this format)

So far I have only been able to load (File->Add Volume) the tiff sequences.
However, the image is displaying as a binary mask (just black and gray),
although the histogram and data type (unsigned short) say otherwise. When I
attempt to load the DICOM volumes, it parses the directories but doesn't
produce a tree, and won't load ('Apply').

I'm sure I'm just missing something simple, but any help would be

FYI: I'm attempting to load sets of 8 DTI images (256x256x12) and 75 DCE
images (256x256x12).
