Viewing MRI CD on mac

I got a CD with my shoulder MRI from my doctor, but it won't open on my Mac. Is there a program to open or convert this so I can view it? Thanks for any help.

The files your CD shows are for a PC. It may well have it's own viewing program (that is, the file may not be a standard file which can be viewed in any standard file viewer), so you may have to borrow a PC to view it, and not be entirely Microsoft free for this one instance.

Some of the directory information suggests you have DICOM files. Maybe one of these apps would read them for you?

Thanks. I'll try them.
Saw weet!!! OsiriX is kick ass. I not only opened it by clicking the DICOM file but I was able to export a series of pics as a QT movie. What a great free program. Thank you very much for the heads up.
