Couldn't you just use any of the gazillion screen capture programs to make JPGs of each 30 second epoch of the EDF viewer and then use an open sourced converter to make the DICOM from these JPGs?

http://download.cnet.com/DICOM-Converter/3000-2129_4-75860085.html Or if it is short snippet of recording, make a screen capture video of the waveform scrolling across the screen and then make that into a DICOM file?

This FREEWARE seems interesting and DICOM capable. http://www.xnview.com/en/xnview/ Sorry, it only READS DICOM not write.

Hold on, if using Matlab, which can open EDF

and also has capability to write DICOM...

this should be no problem.
