How can I get the information from DICOMDIR files

#1 Post by liuxinming » Tue, 2009-09-01, 12:07

For example, when I use the findscu and judge the information(dataset) from the association, and then deside which item(in the DICOMDIR file) meet the search mask, I wonder how I can access the contents of the file.

I' ve noticed that there is a function named "findExistingRecord" and it needs a parent record. So if the recordType is ERT_Patient, the root record should be got. How can I get it, since the member DicomDir of the DicomDirInterface is private?

Thanks a lot!

As you can read in the documentation of this class, DicomDirInterface is "An interface class for simplified creation of a DICOMDIR."

Also see FAQ #30.
