The dcmtk package is now included in the "stable" branch of the Fink package manager. This makes installation of dcmtk on Mac OS X as easy as saying "fink install dcmtk"

What is "Fink" ?

If you don't know what "Fink" is, here's the information from the Fink homepage:
The Fink project wants to bring the full world of Unix Open Source software to Darwin and Mac OS X. We modify Unix software so that it compiles and runs on Mac OS X ("port" it) and make it available for download as a coherent distribution. Fink uses Debian tools like dpkg and apt-get to provide powerful binary package management.

If you haven't already installed Fink, I recommend the following:

  1. Install Fink using the binary installer from the Fink download page. Follow the instructions there.
  2. Install FinkCommander, a GUI for the Fink package manager. FinkCommander makes it very easy to enable the unstable tree to get access to the newest package versions. FinkCommander is now included in the binary Fink installer.
  3. From the Package list, select one of dcmtk or dcmtk-ssl and press the "Install" button:

If you don't want to use FinkCommander you can install the desired dcmtk version by entering

fink install dcmtk

or

fink install dcmtk-ssl

(depending on the package you want) in Terminal.app.
