       gdcmscanner - Scan a directory containing DICOM files.


       gdcmscanner [options] directory


       The gdcmscanner is a command line tool to quickly extract value from a set of DICOM
       attribute in a DICOM File-Set.

         -d --dir       DICOM directory
         -t --tag %d,%d DICOM tag(s) to look for

         -p --print      Print output.
         -r --recursive  Recusively descend directory.

   general options
         -h   --help
                print this help text and exit

         -v   --version
                print version information and exit

         -V   --verbose
                verbose mode (warning+error).

         -W   --warning
                warning mode, print warning information

         -E   --error
                error mode, print error information

         -D   --debug
                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.
