Hi, You could try ImplicitVrs -> {{GroupNumber, ElementNumber}->"vr",....} Alternatively, you could just import a particular file using ReadListBinary as the appropriate type, Partition it and then Display it using ListDensityPlot with Mesh -> False. You may need to install the FastBinaryFiles package for fast import of binaries. I have a feeling the header information is different in the DICOM-RT, but I don't have such a file to check against, and such a file may or may not be supported by the current import options for DICOM files. In any case, it is just a flat binary file of image intensity values. BTW, where are the Dicom.mx and DicomDataDictionary.mx files located? Maybe this could be copied and extended upon.
