Dear Friend, Is there any data loss when i convert a dicom image to any other format??? I mean is it sure that it is 100% reliable if we convert a dicom image to any other formats even to any lossless formats???

If you save your image in a lossless format, the conversion is lossless. Otherwise, not necessarily. Are you converting with imread/imwrite?

You lose most or all of the meta-data information (the new TIFF class can help you preserve some of it.) Otherwise Brett's answer applies.
