Convert movie files to DICOM files

The program allows the user to create a new DICOM file from every movie file within a folder and (optionally) its sub-folders. By default the program creates jpeg compressed, Little Endian, Explicit VR DICOM files. The user can later edit these DICOM files to modify the value of existed fields in their headers (like Patient Name), add new fields, etc. Read the topic Edit DICOM files, to learn how you can edit a DICOM file.

The Movie to DICOM conversion feature is accessible via the menu command: "FileBatchConvert Movies (avi, wmv, mpg) to DICOM". When the user selects this command, a dialog box appears and allows the user to select the folder with movie files and convert them to DICOM files.


To convert movie files to DICOM:
1) Press the "Browse" button and pick the folder with movie files.
2) Press the "Convert" button, to convert movie files to DICOM. The program creates a new DICOM file for every movie file in the same folder.

The program allows the user to select the Compression Factor of the images of the new DICOM files. A higher value in this factor results in better image quality and a larger file size. A lower value means a lower picture quality but also a smaller file size.

About the templates

The DICOM template, is actually a simple file in form of DICOM header, which contains DICOM attributes (fields/tags) with or without values. Create a new DICOM template, and add the attributes you wish to exist in new DICOM files. You can add values in those attributes that are constant from file to file, like Institution Name and Address. The template usage is optional, the user can leave the template field blank.
