How often will I have the chance to stare at my own torn rotator cuff?

Please help me open the MRI images on the CD-rom I received when I left the hospital.

I recently had an MRI of my shoulder, and came home with a CD-rom of the images, of which I only got a fleeting glimpse while the doctor flipped through telling me about the results. I'd like to pore over these images, but have had no luck opening them on my Macbook. Can anyone suggest a free conversion software, or a means to open the images?
What I believe to be the images have no extension (.jpg, .gif, etc), they are just titled with a string of six numbers (eg 693101). There is also a file entitled Thumbs.db which won't open as is or in iPhoto.
Any advice would be most appreciated!
