dicomdict() - Image Processing

dicomdict('set',dictionary) sets
the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) data dictionary
to the value stored in dictionary, a string containing
the filename of the dictionary.  DICOM-related functions use this
dictionary by default, unless a different dictionary is provided at
the command line.dictionary = dicomdict('get') returns
a string containing the filename of the stored DICOM data dictionary.dicomdict('factory') resets
the DICOM data dictionary to its default startup value.Note  

The default data dictionary is a MAT-file, dicom-dict.mat.
The toolbox also includes a text version of this default data dictionary, dicom-dict.txt.
If you want to create your own DICOM data dictionary, open the dicom-dict.txt file
in a text editor, modify it, and save it under another name.
