NAME

       andump - ACR/NEMA DICOM PS3 ... Describe ACR-NEMA file content

SYNOPSIS

       andump   [  -ancreate  ]  [  -extractCSA  ]  [  -showoffset|-showoffset-hex  |-showoffset-
                 octal|-showoffset-oct |-showoffset-decimal|-showoffset-dec ] [ -filename ]

DESCRIPTION

       andump reads the named acr-nema  input  file  and  describes  the  information  contained,
       without attempting to interpret the structure of the message (cf. dcdump).

       The group and element number, dictionary and explicit value representation, description of
       tag, value length and value of the element are displayed, optionally with an  offset  byte
       count from the start of the file.

OPTIONS

       The attribute values, description and verbose output go to standard error.

       Binary  attributes  are  written  in  hexadecimal  with  a  preceding "0x". Numeric string
       attributes are written in decimal. Attribute values are displayed in hexadecimal or string
       format as determined by the value representation.

       The  basic  input  switches  are described in dcintro(1). Options specific to this program
       are:

       -ancreate
              Display item, end item and end sequence delimiter tags in a form suitable  to  feed
              into ancreate.

       -extractCSA
              Extract  the  DICOM-like attributes buried within the Siemens private CSA header OB
              value.

       -showoffset|-showoffset-hex
              Display byte offset from file start in hexadecimal.

       -showoffset-octal|-showoffset-oct
              Display byte offset from file start in octal.

       -showoffset-decimal|-showoffset-dec
              Display byte offset from file start in decimal.

       -filename
              Show the name of the file supplied in the arguments; a hyphen will be  reported  if
              no filename was supplied.
