L_DicomDeleteImage

#include "Ltdic.h"

L_LTDIC_API L_UINT16 L_DicomDeleteImage(hDS, pElement, nIndex, nCount)

HDICOMDS hDS;

a DICOM handle

pDICOMELEMENT pElement;

pointer to a DICOMELEMENT structure

L_UINT32 nIndex;

index value

L_UINT32 nCount;

number of frames to delete

Deletes one or more images from a Pixel Data element.

Parameter

Description

hDS

A DICOM handle.

pElement

Pointer to a DICOMELEMENT structure within the Data Set.

nIndex

Position of the first frame to delete. Use zero-based indexing. For example, if there are 10 bitmaps in a list, the index of the last one is 9. You can delete the last image in the Pixel Data Element by setting this to ELEMENT_INDEX_MAX.

nCount

Number of frames to delete from the Pixel Data Element.

Returns

DICOM_SUCCESS

The function was successful.

>0

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

As an example, if you wish to delete 50 images starting with the 50th frame in the Pixel Data, call this function with nIndex set to 49 (the 50th frame in a zero-based index) and nCount set to 50.

Most DICOM files will only have one Data Element of type TAG_PIXEL_DATA. Therefore, in most instances you can set pElement to NULL, since the function will automatically delete the image(s) from the only Pixel Data Element in the file. If pElement is not NULL, it must point to the Pixel Data Element itself.

If the DICOM file is CLASS_BASIC_DIRECTORY, the file may contain more than one Pixel Data Element. In this case you must specify in pElement the Pixel Data Element from to delete the image(s).

If the DICOM dataset has a Multi-frame Functional Groups module that contains an item that has a Per-frame Functional Groups Sequenceitem, the corresponding item is removed from the dataset. If there is a Shared Functional Groups Sequence item, it will not be removed.

For a detailed discussion on Multi-frame Functional Groups and how the DICOM_SET_IMAGE_MFG flags are used, see the topic Multi-frame Functional Groups.

Example

This example deletes all images from Data Set

#define MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(pFileName) TEXT("C:\\Users\\Public\\Documents\\LEADTOOLS Images\\")pFileName 
L_INT DicomDeleteImageExample(L_VOID) 
{ 
   HDICOMDS hDS; 
   L_UINT16 uRet; 
   hDS = L_DicomCreateDS(NULL); 
   uRet = L_DicomLoadDS(hDS,MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(TEXT("Image1.dcm")), 0); 
   if (uRet != DICOM_SUCCESS) 
   { 
      L_DicomFreeDS(hDS); 
      return uRet; 
   } 
   uRet = L_DicomDeleteImage(hDS, NULL, 0, ELEMENT_INDEX_MAX); 
   L_DicomFreeDS(hDS); 
   return uRet; 
}
