DESCRIPTION

       The gdcmscanner is a command line tool to quickly extract value from a set of DICOM

                    debug mode, print debug information

TYPICAL USAGE

SIMPLE USAGE

       In order to display all the value for Patient Name (0010,0010) in the directory name
       gdcmData, simply do:

           $ gdcmscanner -t 10,10 -d gdcmData -p

COMPLEX USAGE

       Because gdcmscanner does not support progress, you have to wait until all files are
       traversed to see any results. This is quite cumbersome, on UNIX this can be worked around
       with the following trick:

           $ find gdcmData -type d -exec gdcmscanner -t 10,10 -d {} -p ';'

       So all directory are locally traversed (no child directory are recursively traversed),
       which means results comes out much faster.
