DICOM Header's editing, DICOM to DICOM conversionSante DICOM Editor allows you to modify the header's information of a DICOM file. You can modify any field of the header, even the Transfer Syntax UID (0002, 0010). The program creates a valid DICOM file with new Transfer Syntax UID. A change of the Transfer Syntax UID field or a change of the image's characteristics (e.g. Bits Allocated), allows you to do easily a DICOM-to-DICOM conversion. Also you can insert, delete, or modify a tag with Sequence VR (SQ Value representation).
The menu command >"EditEdit Current File" allows the user to edit the active file.
The menu command >"EditEdit All Files Of Current Series" allows the user to edit the common part of all the files of the active series (the fields that contain the same value in all the files).
The menu command >"EditEdit All Files Of Current Study" allows the user to edit the common part of all the files of the active study (the fields that contain the same value in all the files).
DICOM field editing
Fields appearing with red text color and gray background are the ones that the user cannot modify or delete. Usually they are Group Length fields which the program calculates automatically and image information (width, height, color depth, etc.).
Fields appearing with blue text color are the ones that the user cannot delete but can modify.
To modify a field
Select the field's row from the field list and press the Edit Tag button to modify the field.
To delete a field
Select the field's row from the field list and press the Delete Tag button to delete the field.
To insert a new field
Press the Insert Tag button and insert a new field.
You can type the Tag's Group and Element or you can select them from a list. After insertion the proper dialog box appears that allows you to input the value of the new field.
To insert or modify a sequence (Value Representation = SQ)
The program allows you to process a sequence as any other type of field. When you insert or select for editing a sequence the proper dialog box appears:
On the top of this dialog, there are the block manipulation controls.
These controls allow you to insert, delete or view a block which contains typical header's fields.
When you insert a new block the program asks you about the size type of the new block (implicit or explicit size).
It is safe to select any of these two size types. In any block you can insert, delete or modify any field.
Accepts the header's modifications, and closes this dialog box.
Closes this dialog box without recording any changes.
