Ahy help will be greatly appreciated. I need to find out the slice thickness in order to compute the total volume.

Check the header of the image. That information is most likely in the header.

Nearly all images are binary data where the first few bytes are data/information that describes the image, like how many rows and columns of pixels there are, what the number of bit per pixel is, and, if using medical images generated by CT or MRI instruments, information on the physical resolution of the pixels and slice spacing. You need to look at the dicom header and see what's there.
