DICOMREAD

Purpose: Read a header file from a DICOM image.

Format:    DICOMREAD    filename

Notes:     This statement will place the  tag  information into the specified variable.  If specifying a text tag,  use a text variable (preceded by $)  to store ASCII data. Use a numeric variable to store numeric data.  The  DICOMREAD  statement reads the header information from an image file other than the current viewer image.  If this statement is not executed prior to a  DICOMTAG  statement then the current viewer image header is used.

Example:

getfile $dcmfile “Select a Dicom file”

dicomread $dcmfile

dicomtag $patname 0x00100010
pause “Patient Name: “ $patname

dicomtag a 0x00201041
pause “Slice Location: “ a
exit
