           MediaStorage is 1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.1.1.4 [MR Image Storage]

           Dimensions: (64,64,1)
           ...

       By default all private attributes are removed since they may not match the newly generated
       SOP Instance. One way to preserve the private attributes is to use the --mosaic-private
       command line option

           $ gdcmtar --mosaic --mosaic-private -i MR-sonata-3D-as-Tile.dcm -o mosaic --pattern %03d.dcm
