Testing imageio python module.

This python module comes with this intro from pypi website:
Imageio is a Python library that provides an easy interface to read and write a wide range of image data, including animated images, volumetric data, and scientific formats. It is cross-platform, runs on Python 2.7 and 3.4+, and is easy to install.
Let's install this python module:
C:\>cd C:\Python364
C:\Python364>cd Scripts
C:\Python364\Scripts>pip3.6.exe install imageio
Collecting imageio
Successfully built imageio
Installing collected packages: imageio
Successfully installed imageio-2.4.1
You are using pip version 18.0, however version 18.1 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the 'python -m pip install --upgrade pip' comm
I tested with a simple read medical data (DICOM - CT-MONO2-16-brain), see here.
The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard start with the basic idea is that patient and machine-readable information is embedded within a file (usually an image) as it’s created or converted.
This is a simple example without security.
Without encrypted connections between applications, anyone on the network could intercept the DICOM files and extract the patient information.
The Imageio provides a range of example images:
  1. Read an image;
  2. Iterate over frames in a movie;
  3. Grab screenshot or image from the clipboard;
  4. Convert a movie;
  5. Writing videos with FFMPEG and vaapi;
All file formats (93 files type ) can be read by this python module, see webpage here.
The examples from the official webpage work well.
Only the example with the DICOM file cannot be tested.
The main reason: I try to find a DICOM file but I don't find one.

I appreciate that you produced this wonderful article to help us get more knowledge about this topic. I know, it is not an easy task to write such a big article in one day, I've tried that and I've failed. But, here you are, trying the big task and finishing it off and getting good comments and ratings. That is one hell of a job done!
