I copied an MRI onto my computer and it appears that the images have no file type. How can I convert one of these images to GIF file type. I couldn't find a converter that would do it.

Sometimes the file extension doesn't show up. If you open it in a program like Photoshop and click Save As, you can choose a file type.

By MRI image do you mean a DICOM format image?
If so then they have the extension .dcm
They are the scans that come straight off MRI machines and are greyscale.
They can be converted into jpeg, gif or PNG using irfanView, Imagemagick or Photoshop with the DICOM add on.

I went to this site
and found .fcm is used for a whole lot of things. 'Couldn't find a file extension converter to make the change.

Have you got a full sequence of files or just 1 single DICOM file?
http://www.xnview.com/en/formats.html will convert single images as will a couple of other free DICOM viewers.
If you really cant find what you are after, PM me and I will give you my email address to send them to me and I will convert it for you. I wrote a suite of scripts to batch convert full directories of DICOM into jpg, gif and png formats.

The other file types in the folder that contains .dcm files are .fix, .txt, and .idx.
