Note: Leadtools.Dicom.Annotations supports the legacy LEADTOOLS annotation format used prior to version v19. Use it to convert between the Leadtools.Annotations.AnnObject (the legacy LEADTOOLS annotation format) and the LEAD implementation of the DICOM annotation format, Leadtools.Dicom.DicomAnnotationObject.
To support the v19 and later LEADTOOLS annotation format, use the Leadtools.Dicom.Annotations.Core assembly.
LEADTOOLS DICOM Annotations provides two different means for reading and writing legacy LEADTOOLS annotations in a DICOM dataset:
- In Part 3 of the DICOM Specification, the description for the “Graphic Annotation Module” describes how Annotations are to be stored in a DICOM Presentation State. The “Graphic Annotation Module” includes Text Objects, Graphic Objects, and Compound Graphics. LEADTOOLS has full support for converting between the LEADTOOLS Annotations and the DICOM Graphic Annotation Module in a DICOM Presentation State (i.e., DICOM Annotations).
- Alternatively, there is support for reading and writing legacy LEADTOOLS Annotations in the LEAD Native format as a private element in a DICOM dataset.
