Bulk Import Users to AD with custom attributes

Having trouble importing users into AD with powershell. We have a few custom attributes and I found that the way to set the custom attribute was with this line and it works fine:

New-ADUser -Name johnnyboy1 -OtherAttributes @{'rcsidnumber'=12345678; 'RCSuserPhoto'="\\fileserver10\RCSIPhoto\11115149.jpg"}

But when I try to use this logic with a csv file I get an error please see below for details:

CSV File
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
PS C:\Windows\system32> Import-Csv "C:\new.csv"

rcsidnumber                                                                                                                       rcsuserphoto                                                                                                                    
-----------                                                                                                                       ------------                                                                                                                    
12345678                                                                                                                          \\fileserver10\RCSIPhoto\12345678.jpg              


When I take custom attributes from CSV file
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
PS C:\Windows\system32> Import-Csv "C:\new.csv" |
New-ADUser -Name johnnyboy3 -OtherAttributes @{'rcsidnumber'=$_"RCSidNumber"; 'RCSuserPhoto'=$_."RCSuserPhoto"}

Unexpected token 'RCSidNumber' in expression or statement.
At line:2 char:64

How can I overcome this error?

Thanks

$_"RCSidNumber should $_.RCSidNumber
