Hello Maryam,

(please always use the mailing list, because 1) we cannot reply to all
emails and 2) it allows to reduce a bit the number of times that the same
questions are asked.)

You can find some information in the section "Alternative usage of
voxelized geometry" of the page
I recommend that you use mhd/raw image file format. As indicated, you can
use vv.creatis.insa-lyon.fr or other software to convert dicom to or from
mhd/raw file format.
