You can use this to replace or enhance Matlab's DICOM interface and add DICOM networking.

I have tested the classes in your example and they work well. I am specifically interested in utilizing the dcmsnd class but I can't determine the command to load the object into Matlab. I was wondering if you could provide some insight. Thanks.

Note about versioning: This only seems to work with Matlab 7 or later. And, if you're using a different version of dcm4che you'll need to update all the library filenames appropriately.

It is really good. Could you give some more info. about how to get the information in the Tag? For instance, it will be very usefull to know how can I get "Pixel Spacing", "Image Position (Patient)", "Slice Thickness" etc ...
