image position patient parsing

Hi, Is there any 'magical' function in dcmtk that can translate a pixel coordinate of a DICOM image into its image position patient location? I can parse the image position patient tag to find the origin pixel's location in patient space, and using the parsed pixel spacing can *almost* figure out an...

Hi Marco, Thanks for the reply - actually I am a bit confused now as to how to set the data in the private tag. Suppose I have a function to serialize the structure into a stream of bytes like so: SOMETHING s; string strSerialized = s.serialize(); How do I actually go about setting it as VR OB in a ...

Store structure in private tag

Hello, Is it possible to store a block of data as a private tag using dcmtk? I need to store a structure someplace in the file for later reference. Something like the following pseudocode: struct SOMETHING { int x; int y; string strData1; string strData2; }; SOMETHING test; DcmFileFormat dcm; dcm.ge...

DCMTK conflict with PACS system?

Hi all, I'm trying to push images to a PACS server with STORE-SCU, but cannot push some select images. The PACS administrator at that site said to try: 1) disabling store commit in the C-STORE messages. 2) Some of the images I am trying to send have a header that is too long. 3) The header length mu...

window leveling

How does DCMTK perform window leveling on RGB images? Does it just do the window level formula on each color channel per pixel? Is the SetWindow method of DicomImage + GetOutput fast enough to be called in real time so that I can change the window level interactively on the fly? Thanks, :o ________ ...

findAndGetOFString() truncates backslashes in tag data?

Hi everyone, I was using findAndGetOFString() to fetch ImagePosition/PixelSpacing tags, these tags have backslashes delimiting different portions of the data within the tag. But my returned OFString only contains the data up to the first backslash in the tag data! If I use findAndGetString() it work...

transfer syntax - Media storage SOP UID

Hi, I have two questions, I am a little unclear on the following. 1) When an image comes in from a scanner device, say MRI, what transfer syntax should the image be saved with if it is to be stored and manipulated on a standard little endian PC? Is it necessary to change this tag? Or should the orig...

Ok I got it to work. I will post the steps here, if someone can verify this was the correct way that would be great, also perhaps people can refer to this post later on for help as well: 1) Go to dcmdata\libsrc and make a backup of dcdictzz.cxx.

Hi, I've been reading the FAQ and another post here about private tags, but still am uncertain of how to procede. First I compiled the project which can create a built in dictionary from private.dic (makedictbi.cxx). I added my private tag to private.dic and had it rebuilt. My first question is, wha...
