Module Description

Create a DICOM Series from a Slicer volume. User can specify values for selected DICOM tags in the UI. Given the number of tags DICOM series have, it is impossible to expose all tags in UI. So only important tags can be set by the user.


Use Cases

Slicer writes out data in a number of different formats. This behavior is controlled through the Save function in the File pull down in the top left of the Main GUI. In the case of a user of Slicer needing a volume in Dicom format, this module can be used to accomplish this.

Panels and their use

Parameters:

  • Patient Parameters
    • Patient Name: The name of the patient [0010-0010]
    • Patient ID: The patient ID [0010-0020]
    • Patient Comments: Patient comments [0010-4000]
  • Study Parameters
    • Study ID: The study ID [0020-0010]
    • Study Date: The date of the study [0008-0020]
    • Study Comments: Study comments[0032-4000]
    • Study Descriptions: Study description[0008-1030]
    • Modality: Modality [0008-0060]
    • Manufacturer: Manufacturer [0008-0070]
    • Model: model [0008-1090]
  • Series Parameters
    • Series Number: The series number [0020-0011]
    • Series Description: Series description [0008-103E]
  • Image Parameters
    • Rescale intercept: Rescale interscept [0028-1052]. Converts pixel values on disk to pixel values in memory. (Pixel value in memory) = (Pixel value on disk) * rescaleSlope + rescaleIntercept. Default is 0.0. Data values are converted on write (the data is scaled and shifted so that the slope and interscept will bring it back to the current intensity range).
    • Rescale slope: Rescale slope [0028-1053]. Converts pixel values on disk to pixel values in memory. (Pixel value in memory) = (Pixel value on disk) * rescaleSlope + rescaleInterscept. Default is 1.0. Data values are converted on write (the data is scaled and shifted so that the slope and interscept will bring it back to the current intensity range).
  • Input
    • Input Volume: Input volume to be resampled
  • Output
    • DICOM Directory: The directory to contain the DICOM series.
    • DICOM filename prefix: The prefix of the DICOM filename.
    • DICOM file number format: The printf-style format to be used when creating the per-slice DICOM filename.
    • Reverse Slices: Reverse the slices.
    • Use Compression: Compress the output pixel data.
