DICOM images

Hello,
I'm new to Alfresco and frankly quite a bit confused with it. The guides feel rather lacking, documentation is spread all around the wiki, blogs and other sites, and I couldn't get some stuff to even compile.
My goal is to create a custom DICOM model (ability to upload and display DICOM images). Files being uploaded are .DICOM files and they should be kept like that, Alfresco should just be able to display them like images with certain metadata elements (Strings only probably).

Now I solved the problem of converting a DICOM file to an Image, in a plain old Java application, but I can't seem to figure out where I should be doing this in Alfresco (or how). I need a way to specify that Alfresco should display files using (my) specified controllers and JSP, that load (from DICOM's repository), parse and then display DICOM images.

So what should I even be looking at? Specifically, what documentation is there on how to do this with Java?

Thanks in advance,
Gajo Petrovic
