With the current ITK4 migration branch (bug-10925), MITK crashes when loading test image OT-PAL-8-face.dcm
The crash can be avoided by the patch in https://itk.icts.uiowa.edu/jira/browse/ITK-3024
Afterwards MITK still produces a gray image because it provides the wrong pixel type in DicomSeriesReader. When the pixel type is modified to RGBPixel<unsigned char>, it seems that ITK generates a correct image, but the MITK image is initialized in a wrong way. Attached screenshot shows the generated image information (most of all 3 bits per element).
I'll push a branch that makes DicomSeriesReader ask ITK for RGBPixel.
