NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

       dcdump [ -v|verbose ] [ -filename ]

DESCRIPTION

       dcdump  reads  the  named  dicom  or  acr-nema  input  file  and describes the information
       contained, attempting  to  interpret  the  structure  of  the  message,  including  nested
       sequences (cf. andump).

       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:

       -verbose
              Display byte offset from file start and message start,  in  hexadecimal,  and  dump
              contents while reading and once read.

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