      Hi, I have a scan to send electronically to a different country for a second opinion – I sent through yousendit.com, but he is unable to open it I am wondering if I sent the wrong file.  These are the files I see on the scan when I open it up – does anyone know which one I should attach to the email to send him.

          I believe "dicomdir" is the most important file, i.e. it contains the actual images.

          You could also create a single file archive of all the files and send this archive (for example with WinRAR).
