Hi Danny,

The Mathematica functions you are looking for are called *Import* and 
*Export*. I am not familiar with the Dicom file format, but, according 
to the online help, "Export creates files in the DICOM file format as 
specified in Section PS 3.10 of the DICOM standard."

http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/Built-inFunctions/GraphicsAndSound/ImportAndExport/AdditionalInformation/Export.html

Now, the DICOM file format is much more than just an image file (it 
includes plenty of meta-information about the patient for instance), so 
I guess you would have to experiment various options before deciding 
whether Mathematica is suitable for the task.
