dicomdisp

Display DICOM file structure

Syntax

dicomdisp(filename)
dicomdisp(___,Name,Value)

Description

example

dicomdisp(filename) reads the metadata from the compliant DICOM file specified in the string or character vector filename and displays the metadata at the command prompt. dicomdisp can be helpful when debugging issues with DICOM files.

dicomdisp(___,Name,Value) reads the metadata using name-value pairs to control aspects of the operation.

Examples

Input Arguments

collapse all

Name of DICOM file, specified as a string scalar or character vector .

Data Types: char | string

Name-Value Pair Arguments

Specify optional comma-separated pairs of Name,Value arguments. Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name must appear inside single quotes (' '). You can specify several name and value pair arguments in any order as Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN.

Example: dicomdisp('CT-MONO2-16-ankle.dcm','UseVRHeuristic',false)

collapse all

Name of DICOM data dictionary, specified as a character vector. When specified, dicomdisp uses the data dictionary to read the DICOM file. The file must be on the MATLAB search path.

Data Types: char | string

Read noncompliant DICOM files that switch value representation (VR) modes incorrectly, specified as the Boolean value true or false. When set to true, dicomdisp uses a heuristic to help read certain noncompliant DICOM files which switch value representation (VR) modes incorrectly. When dicomdisp uses this heuristic, it displays a warning. When set to true (the default), dicomdisp might not read some compliant DICOM files correctly. To read these compliant files, set UseVRHeuristic to false.

Data Types: logical

Introduced in R2015a
