OpenCV does not support DICOM images so that you will have to find a suitable libary (like ) and convert the loaded image to a cv::Mat.

Do you know the reason , why they didn't implement its reader , its an essential format for medical images .

I guess the demand is not high enough. But OpenCV is Open Source so if you implement a reader, you could try to get into a future version.
