Detailed Description

Interface for DICOM readers that produce mitk::Images.

As described in The DICOM Module, this class structures the reader's part in the process of analyzing a set of DICOM files and selecting the most appropriate reader.

The overall loading process is as follows:

  • Define input files: a list of absolute filenames
  • Analyze the potential output: see what can be made of the input files, describe with DICOMImageBlockDescriptors
  • Load pixel data: an application will usually analyze files using multiple readers and only load with a single reader

Sub-classes are required to implement a number of methods that reflect above structure. See mitk::DICOMITKSeriesGDCMReader for an example.

To help applications in describing different readers to the user, each reader brings a number of methods that describe its configuration/specifics by means of a short label and a (longer) description.

Member Typedef Documentation

◆ AdditionalTagsMapType

Type specifies additional tags of interest. Key is the tag path of interest. The value is an optional user defined name for the property that should be used to store the tag value(s). Empty value is default and will imply to use the found DICOMTagPath as property name.

◆ SetAdditionalTagsOfInterest()

virtual void mitk::DICOMFileReader::SetAdditionalTagsOfInterest ( const AdditionalTagsMapType tagList)
virtual

Set a list of DICOMTagPaths that specifiy all DICOM-Tags that will be copied into the property of the mitk::Image.

This method can be used to specify a list of DICOM-tags that shall be available after the loading. The value in the tagMap is an optional user defined name for the property key that should be used when storing the property). Empty value is default and will imply to use the found DICOMTagPath as property key. By default the content of the DICOM tags will be stored in a StringLookupTable on the mitk::Image. This behaviour can be changed by setting a different TagLookupTableToPropertyFunctor via SetTagLookupTableToPropertyFunctor().

◆ SetTagCache()

virtual void mitk::DICOMFileReader::SetTagCache ( const DICOMTagCache::Pointer &  )
pure virtual

A way to provide external knowledge about files and tag values is appreciated.

◆ SetTagLookupTableToPropertyFunctor()

virtual void mitk::DICOMFileReader::SetTagLookupTableToPropertyFunctor ( mitk::DICOMImageBlockDescriptor::TagLookupTableToPropertyFunctor  functor)
virtual

Set a functor that defines how the slice-specific tag-values are stored in a Property.

This method sets a functor that is given a StringLookupTable that contains the values of one DICOM tag mapped to the slice index. The functor is supposed to store these values in an mitk Property.

By default, the StringLookupTable is stored in a StringLookupTableProperty except if all values are identical. In this case, the unique value is stored only once in a StringProperty.
