Photometric Interpretations

DICOM allows various relationships between the pixel data and how the image should be displayed. The values here are found in element 0028,0004 and every image should have that value.

Hierarchical SOP Instance

While DicomObjects can not create a Dicom Hierarchical SOP Instance dataset collection directly, however it can do much of the work for you. A Hierarchical SOP Instance Dataset collection are similar in structure to a DicomDir which DicomObjects can create automatically.


To create a DICOM Image Histogram Module, users of DicomObjects can use the DicomImage.Histogram method, which returns an array containing the distribution of the raw pixel values.

How to Implement Shutters in DicomObjects

Shutters are a means to “black out” areas of an image outside the area of interest, and are defined in DICOM and in presentation states.
