       This program allows adjustment of a DICOM series.

       In  its most basic functionality, this command reads a DICOM series and then writes it out
       with a new UID.  It strips out any meta data that is not recognized as  part  of  the  SOP
       class  that  it is writing.  In other words, its main purpose is to coerce the data to fit
       the requested SOP class.

       Currently, only three output SOP classes can be written: Secondary Capture,  CT,  and  MR.
       Enhanced  CT  and  Enhanced  MR  cannot  be  written, but they can be read, therefore this
       program can be used to convert enhanced single-file CT and MR DICOM into a series of DICOM
       files.

       The  written  data  has  the ImageType set to DERIVED\SECONDARY\OTHER and has a new series
       number and name.  It isn't meant to replace the original  data,  it  is  simply  meant  to
       coerce the data into a format that might be more compatible with other software.

       Reformatting  of  the  data  (MPR)  is  permitted  during  the  conversion.   This  is  an
       experimental feature and causes much of  the  per-instance  meta  data  to  be  discarded.
       Reformatting  be  combined  with  resampling  to  produce an output with square pixels via
       Lanczos interpolation.
