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

NAME
dcfile - ACR/NEMA DICOM PS3 ... DICOM PS3 - Describe DICOM file content SYNOPSIS
dcfile [ -b|brief ] [ -filename ] DESCRIPTION
dcfile reads the named dicom or acr-nema input file and describes the encoding method of the file, ie. what transfer syntax is in use, and whether or not a Part 10 style meta-information header is present. OPTIONS
The description goes to standard error. The basic input switches are described in dcintro(1). Options specific to this program are: -b|brief Display a single line brief summary. -filename Show the name of the file supplied in the arguments; a hyphen will be reported if no filename was supplied. ENVIRONMENT
EXAMPLES
% dcfile dicomdir. Meta: UID 1.2.840.10008.1.2.1 Meta: Description "Explicit VR Little Endian" Meta: ByteOrder Little Meta: VR Explicit Meta: Encapsulated No Data: UID 1.2.840.10008.1.2.1 Data: Description "Explicit VR Little Endian" Data: ByteOrder Little Data: VR Explicit Data: Encapsulated No % dcfile expmeta.dc3 Meta: UID 1.2.840.10008.1.2.1 Meta: Description "Explicit VR Little Endian" Meta: ByteOrder Little Meta: VR Explicit Meta: Encapsulated No Data: UID 1.2.840.10008.1.2 Data: Description "Implicit VR Little Endian" Data: ByteOrder Little Data: VR Implicit Data: Encapsulated No % dcfile NM.1 Data: UID 1.2.840.10008.1.2 Data: Description "Implicit VR Little Endian" Data: ByteOrder Little Data: VR Implicit Data: Encapsulated No % dcfile test.spi Data: ByteOrder Big Data: VR Implicit Data: Encapsulated No % dcfile -b evrlewm.dcm DICOM file, with metaheader, Explicit VR Little Endian % dcfile -b evrlenom.dcm DICOM file, no metaheader, Explicit VR Little Endian FILES

DCKEY(1)					       DICOM PS3 - Extract attribute values						  DCKEY(1)

NAME
dckey - ACR/NEMA DICOM PS3 ... Extract attribute values SYNOPSIS
dckey [ -ignorereaderrors ] [ -v|verbose ] [ -filename ] [ -describe ] [ -brief ] [ -d|decimal ] [ -key|k elementname|(0xgggg,0xeeee) ] ... DESCRIPTION
dckey reads the named dicom input file and displays the values of the selected attributes. Binary attributes are written in hexadecimal with a preceding "0x" and numeric string attributes are written in decimal as they are encoded, unless the -decimal option is specified. OPTIONS
The attribute values, description and verbose output go to standard error. The basic input switches are described in dcintro(1). Options specific to this program are: -describe Display the tag, name, value representation and value length of the attribute. -brief Display the keyword of the attribute, and equals sign, and then the value, for use in scripts that automatically extract multiple values in the same dckey invocation. Implies -noerror. -ignorereaderrors Attempt to extract key values even if errors encountered whilst parsing DICOM file. -noerror Do not report an error if the requested attribute was not found, just an empty value or line. Implied by -brief. -d|decimal Display the first (or only) value of a numeric attribute as a decimal value. -k|key elementname|(0xgggg,0xeeee) Add a key to the list of attributes to be extracted. The attribute may also be specified as a hexadecimal pair of the form (0xgggg,0xeeee), which also allows private attributes to be fetched. -filename Show the name of the file supplied in the arguments; a hyphen will be reported if no filename was supplied. ENVIRONMENT

Attempts to extract sequences or OB,OW attributes may fail nastily. The order in which the attributes are extracted and written is not the same order as they are specified on the command line, and should not be depended on. The -describe and other options cannot be used at the same time. The -decimal option uses a double conversion before displaying the value and there may be sign extension and precision issues with some values. The reading of the attributes from the DICOM file will not proceed past the top level Pixel Data attribute, in order to accelerate the speed of reading. DICOM PS3 19 November 2008 DCKEY(1)
