Hi Peter,
Sounds like the same thing that happened to the colors issue. BinaryRead
is now in the kernel and no longer part of Experimental and someone has
either forgotten that importing DICOM format files  used this function OR
it has been left there deliberately to warn potential users that changes
have taken place.

If you still have a V5.0 loaded you can check that the correct version is
being used, because Experimental`BinaryRead` should be a little slower
than BinaryRead in V5.1. Try it with BinaryReadList on one image slice.
