DCDUMP(1)					      DICOM PS3 - Describe DICOM file content						 DCDUMP(1)

NAME
dcdump - ACR/NEMA DICOM PS3 ... DICOM PS3 - Describe DICOM file content SYNOPSIS
dcdump [ -v|verbose ] [ -filename ] DESCRIPTION
dcdump reads the named dicom or acr-nema input file and describes the information contained, attempting to interpret the structure of the message, including nested sequences (cf. andump). The group and element number, dictionary and explicit value representation, description of tag, value length and value of the element are displayed, optionally with an offset byte count from the start of the file. OPTIONS
The attribute values, description and verbose output go to standard error. Binary attributes are written in hexadecimal with a preceding "0x". Numeric string attributes are written in decimal. Attribute values are displayed in hexadecimal or string format as determined by the value representation. The basic input switches are described in dcintro(1). Options specific to this program are: -verbose Display byte offset from file start and message start, in hexadecimal, and dump contents while reading and once read. -filename Show the name of the file supplied in the arguments; a hyphen will be reported if no filename was supplied. ENVIRONMENT
EXAMPLES

DCTOPGX(1)						DICOM PS3 - DICOM image to PGX file						DCTOPGX(1)

NAME
dctopgx - ACR/NEMA DICOM PS3 ... DICOM PS3 - DICOM image to PGX file SYNOPSIS
dctopgx [ -v|verbose ] [ -quiet|silent ] DESCRIPTION
dctopgx reads the named dicom or acr-nema input file and copies the raw image pixel data to a PGX file as used for the JPEG 2000 Verifica- tion Model. A PGX file contains of a single text header line of the form "PG <byte order> [+|-]<bit-depth> <cols> <rows> immediately by the raw binary data. There may be 1, 2 or 4 bytes per sample corresponding to bit depths from 1 to 32. Byte order is "LM" (little endian) or "ML" (big endian). The signed or unsigned pixel representation is indicated by '+' or '-' character before the bit depth. If the '+' is omitted, unsigned is implied. The input file must be unencapsulated. PGX supports big or little endian byte order in the case of > 8 bit data. The output byte order is always in the same as the input, since the raw bytes are copied from input to output without any conversion. Use dccp(1) first to change the encoding if necessary. PGX also supports signed data, so the Pixel Representation of the input is used to specify whether the output is signed or unsigned. OPTIONS
The PGX output goes where it is specified or standard out. The verbose output goes to standard error. The basic input switches are described in dcintro(1). Options specific to this program are: -quiet|silent Suppress the normal description of image parameters. -verbose Display byte offset from file start and message start, in hexadecimal, and dump contents while reading, once read, during replace- ment, and before writing.
