I don't know if this question belongs here or not but it is an emergency for me.

I just got my father's angiogram report as a DICOM file but I am unable to view it. When I try to open the file I get a message saying "Can't open the file without disk".

How do I open DicomViewer file?

Googling "dicomviewer" finds software that seems to be able to open these files. See here and here. – terdon Mar 19 '13 at 17:23

According to wikipedia:

DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) is a standard for handling, storing, printing, and transmitting information in medical imaging.

A quick google search for "DcomViewer" returns many results that seem to be able to open these files. I don't have any so I can't check.

These two seem promising:
