    DicomImage Object
    In This Topic
    In general, a DicomImage is a superset of the DicomDataSet type, which also contains a collection of attributes, the distinction being that a DicomImage contains pixel data, and is therefore displayable within a DicomViewer control, whereas a DicomDataSet does not contain pixel data, and is not displayable.  The different properties and methods reflect this difference.

    Each DicomImage object corresponds to one SOP instance, and for display, DicomImages are commonly held within a DicomImages collection.

    A DicomImage object is directly creatable, either using Visual Basic’s “CreateObject” method (or equivalent) using the name “DicomObjects.DicomImage” or via the DicomViewer’s New method.
