       Find dicom files in one directory and copy them to a new directory.

       The  output directory given with "-o" can use DICOM attributes, by naming those attributes
       within          curly          braces.           For           example,           consider
       "{PatientID}/{StudyDescription}/{SeriesDescription}-{SeriesNumber}"  or  something similar
       to produce a hierarchichal directory structure.  The attributes used in the path should be
       from the following list:

              PatientID,  PatientName,  PatientBirthDate,  PatientSex, StudyID, StudyDescription,
              StudyDate,   StudyTime,    StudyInstanceUID,    SeriesNumber,    SeriesDescription,
              SeriesInstanceUID, Modality, AccessionNumber.

       The  files to be copied are specified with search keys, which take the form "-k key=value"
       where keys can either use the standard names given in the DICOM dictionary, e.g.  Modality
       or  SeriesDescription,  or can be in the form GGGG,EEEE with hexadecimal group and element
       values.  The tags can also be listed in a query file with the "-q"  option  (one  tag  per
       line). Private tags should be preceded by the private dictionary name in square brackets.

       The  values  used  for "-k key=value" can use the wildcards * and ?, and can also use date
       ranges of the form "19990103-19990105".
