Free tools allow view Medica DICOM Images, support reads a specified frame in a multi-framed DICOM image. Support playback all frames in a multi-framed DICOM image. Support read all patient metadata from DICOM images. Support zoom in, zoom out and select different view of DICOM image.
Viewer only - have to open each file individually.
As with most free downloads now, you have to get through the "lets dump other stuff on your computer" adverts before you get to the actual download. The webpage it wants to go to after finishing was blocked by my security software, so there may be more auto-dump going on there. But the software works.

Version: DICOM Viewer 1.21
No redeeming value
Not only did the program not work (I was trying to open CAT scan and MRI images from a CD), it installed 16 malware programs on my computer (Thanks to Malwarebytes for helping with cleanup). I thought it would be safe to download since it was on CNET. I was sorely mistaken! I found a program called Microdicom that is free, works well and doesn't have spyware.
The download does NOT contain any crap, the only thing it does is displaying a square banner on the right of the program window. The software itself is not feature rich but it is still ok for just viewing DCM files.
No tools for selection/editing, layer image export etc.
