dcmdump and len value

#1 Post by dave » Mon, 2006-09-18, 15:02

We are checking the length of tags with long values, (300a,0394 ScanSpotPositionMap where the length can be sometimes over 13,000), and we have found a discrepancy between what dcmdump and dcm2xml report vs. what we get when we copy/paste the value into Textpad, for example. Shorter lengths are all correct but when tag length gets into the thousands, the numbers aren't the same.

Can anyone shed some light on this finding?

:oops:
Never mind. The lengeth is the vm multiplied by the byte allocation of the datatype. Guess we were comparing apples to oranges.

Thanks anyway.
