Modify many DICOM headers sequentially

Select the command "FileBatchModify DICOM Files", from program's menu. This command allows you to insert, modify or delete attributes in DICOM files. For each one of these actions you need a template. The DICOM template is actually a simple file in form of DICOM header, which contains DICOM attributes (fields/tags) with or without their values. These attributes are inserted in the header of files, or these attributes modify or delete the existing attributes. The program creates the new files with the same names with old ones, plus a "_mod" suffix to avoid overwriting of the original files.
