NAME

       dciodvfy - ACR/NEMA DICOM PS3 ... DICOM PS3 - Validate DICOM objects

SYNOPSIS

       dciodvfy [ -profile profilename ] [ -describe ] [ -dump ] [ -v|verbose ] [ -filename ]

DESCRIPTION

       dciodvfy  reads  the  named  dicom  file and describes the type of information object (SOP
       class instance) contained therein, validating it against the  standard  and  checking  for
       required modules and attributes, and appropriate representation and values of attributes.

OPTIONS

       The 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:

       -profile profilename
              Validate not against the standard but the IOD matching the named profile.

       -describe
              Describe the contents of the object without getting too verbose.

       -dump
              Dump the attribute list; differs from dcdump in that the  list  is  decorated  with
              whether  or  not  the  attribute is used in the IOD and what information entity the
              attribute belongs to based on the IOD.

       -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.
