Hello,

What tools, if any, does DCMTK provide for measuring a DICOM image.

Thank you,
Ali

What do you mean by "measuring a DICOM image"?

Thanks for replying.
I am building an image viewer and I want to create a ruler to show the length of an area of the image in cm (say, given number of pixels, is it somehow possible to convert to cm).
I would like to do this after the image has been zoomed in/out as well, but that is a side note.

I hope that's clear.

Thank you for the further explanations. To answer your question: No, there are no "tools" or any ready-to-use methods in the DCMTK to display a "ruler" (or the like) on a DICOM image.
