dicominfo() - Image Processing

info = dicominfo(filename) reads
the metadata from the compliant Digital Imaging and Communications
in Medicine (DICOM) file specified in the string = dicominfo(filename, 'dictionary',
D) uses the data dictionary file given in the string D to
read the DICOM message. The file in D must be on
the MATLABĀ® search path. The default file is = dicominfo(___,'UseVRHeuristic',
TF) instructs the parser to use a heuristic to help read
certain noncompliant files which switch value representation (VR)
modes incorrectly. dicominfo displays a warning
if the heuristic is used. When TF is true (the
default), a small number of compliant files will not be read correctly.
Set TF to false to read these
compliant = dicominfo(___, 'UseDictionaryVR',
TF) specifies whether the data types in INFO should
conform to the data dictionary, regardless of what information is
present in the file. The default value is false,
which uses the file's VR codes even if they differ from the data dictionary.
Most of the time it is unnecessary to set this field, since file contents
and the data dictionary almost always agree. When TF is false (the
default), dicominfo issues a warning when they
do not agree. Set TF to true when the warning is
issued and providing info to dicomwrite causes
