NAME

       dcposn - ACR/NEMA DICOM PS3 ... DICOM PS3 - DICOM locate position

SYNOPSIS

       dcposn [ -col|x n ] [ -row|y n ] [ -v|verbose ] [ -filename ]

DESCRIPTION

       dcposn  reads the named dicom input file and locates the requested image pixel position in
       3D space using the attributes of the Image Plane module (Image Position Patient and  Image
       Orientation Patient) if present.

       The  spatial  position  is  described  as  patient  (not  gantry)  relative x, y and z co-
       ordinates, where x is +ve leftwards, y is +ve anteriorly and z is +ve cranially.

OPTIONS

       The co-ordinates and verbose output go to standard error.

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

       -col|x n -row|y n
              The specified image pixel position begins from 0 in the top left hand corner of the
              image.

       -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.

BUGS

       This program really only exists for automated testing of the image plane module.
