Question mesh generation from .vol file

RugbyGandalf is on a distinguished road

i am relatively new to OpenFoam and meshing...
By now I am going through the User's Guide and practicing all day

I also installed the programs NetGen and Engrid.
With both of them i tried to open a .vol file, which made them crash

the .vol is a seal's vibrissae (beard hair), which has been scanned by a scientific machine/computer.
It consists of many .tif files, which in sum create the .vol file after merging.

I have no idea how to open or mesh it for some flow calculation

Could someone please help me?

Thank you very much in forecast.
