Hey all,

i just wanted to continue on the DICOM-Feature for Owncloud (v on
debian) but got stuck.

First thing i would like to get working is thumbnail-preview (dicom viewer
would be nice, but i am not a professional developer, so starting with a
small job seems better) using your hints from this conversation to get

Converting dicom to image with Imagick works fine using this code for

$data = new imagick( 'test.dcm' ); 
$im = imagecreatefromstring($data);
header('Content-Type: image/jpeg');

As the PDF thumbnail Preview uses imagick too - i tried this way:
* duplicate of lib/private/preview/pdf.php named dicom.php with this code:

		class DICOM extends Provider {

			public function getMimeType() {
				return '/application\/dicom/';

			public function getThumbnail($path, $maxX, $maxY, $scalingup, $fileview)
				$tmpPath = $fileview->toTmpFile($path);

				//create imagick object from pdf
					$dicom = new Imagick($tmpPath);
				} catch (\Exception $e) {
					\OC_Log::write('core', $e->getmessage(), \OC_Log::ERROR);
					return false;


				//new image object
				$image = new \OC_Image($dicom);

* add the mimetype application\dicom to lib/private/mimetypes.list.php
* include the dicom.php in lib/private/preview/preview.php
* enabled preview providers 'OC\Preview\DICOM' in /config/config.php

owncloud.log is not very helpful, and i dont know where my problem is
located. the output of  imagick should be the same as with PDF i think ?!

Thanks for your help in advance!
