Creating SC Image

#1 Post by Bojan » Mon, 2013-04-22, 10:22

Hi,

I want to create a Secondary Capture Image by editing pixels of existing DICOM file and copying relevant attributes from it.

I am wondering how DCMTK can help me with that. For instance, is there a way to copy all attributes of a DICOM module or do attributes have to be copied one by one? Also, is DcmPixelData the highest level abstraction of the image (for editing purposes) or is there maybe a way to work with "Image Pixel" DICOM module some other way?

Hi,

you can copy a whole dataset by calling DcmDataset->clone(). Then change all required attributes.

HTH,
Michael

So either I copy attributes one by one or I copy all and delete excess attributes one by one (and of course, change few to make it SC Image).

Thank you!
