jpeg200 not identified

#1 Post by George »


This is the below code does not identify the attached nanox file as jpeg2000 can you assist and tell us why? I think the command ataset->findAndGetString(DCM_TransferSyntaxUID, transferSyntax).good()
do not work good? ... drive_link

Code: Select all

bool isJPEG2000TransferSyntax(const std::string& filePath) {

    LOG("entered the isJPEG2000TransferSyntax function");
    DcmFileFormat fileFormat;
    OFCondition status = fileFormat.loadFile(filePath.c_str());
    LOG("loaded the file");
    if (status.good()) {
        // Retrieve the dataset from the file
        DcmDataset *dataset = fileFormat.getDataset();
        LOG("status is good");
        // Get the transfer syntax
        const char *transferSyntax;
        LOG("dataset->findAndGetString(DCM_TransferSyntaxUID, transferSyntax).good()=", dataset->findAndGetString(DCM_TransferSyntaxUID, transferSyntax).good(), true);

    OFBool status = dataset->findAndGetString(DCM_TransferSyntaxUID, transferSyntax).good();
    LOG((bool)status, true);
    if (status) {
        // Successfully retrieved the Transfer Syntax

        if (dataset->findAndGetString(DCM_TransferSyntaxUID, transferSyntax).good()) {
            std::string transferSyntaxStr(transferSyntax);

            LOG("transferSyntaxStr is ", transferSyntaxStr);

            // Check if the transfer syntax corresponds to JPEG2000
            // JPEG 2000 Lossless: "1.2.840.10008."
            // JPEG 2000 Lossy (ISO 15444-1): "1.2.840.10008."
            if (transferSyntaxStr == "1.2.840.10008." || transferSyntaxStr == "1.2.840.10008.") {
                return true; // The file uses JPEG2000 transfer syntax
    } else {
        //std::cerr << "Error: Cannot load DICOM file (" << status.text() << ")" << std::endl;

    return false; // The file does not use JPEG2000 transfer syntax or an error occurred

dataset->findAndGetString(DCM_TransferSyntaxUID, transferSyntax).good();
The transfer syntax is not part of the Dataset but is part of the metaheader. I did not check the rest of the code carefully.
Use instead:

Code: Select all

DcmMetaInfo *dataset = fileFormat.getMetaInfo();
George, please also put some effort into solving your problems yourself... Using dcmdump on the file it should be obvious that the transfer syntax cannot be found in the dataset.
