DCMTK anonymizer tool

#1 Post by jsalk » Thu, 2004-11-25, 16:24

Hi all,

I've noticed some private tags for a DCMTK anonymizer tool in
private.dic. According to the changelog, these have been introduced
with version 3.5.2. However, I am not able to find this tool in the
distributed sources nor any pointers in the documentation.

Am I missing something or is it just not (yet) included in the
DCMTK distribution? If my assumption is correct, are there any
plans to ship this tool with the upcoming version?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards - Juergen Salk

We developed such a tool some time ago on customer request. It is not currently part of the public toolkit, and we have not yet decided how to proceed with the tool. We just added the private tags used by that tool to maintain a database for UID/ID lookup to private.dic. Interesting to see that someone really reads through the data dictionary :)
