HDICOMDS hDS;

a DICOM handle

L_UINT32 uFrameIndex;

index value

pDICOMMLUTATTRIBS pModalityLUTAttributes;

pointer to a Modality LUT attributes structure

L_UINT uStructSize;

Retrieves the attributes that describe the Modality LUT.

Parameter

Description

hDS

A DICOM handle.

uFrameIndex

A zero-based index that identifies the frame number in the dataset.  If the dataset does not support Multi-frames, this parameter is ignored.

pModalityLUTAttributes

Pointer to a structure to be updated with the Modality LUT attributes.

uStructSize

Size of the DICOMMLUTATTRIBS structure. Pass sizeof(DICOMMLUTATTRIBS).

uFlags

Reserved for future use. Pass 0.

Returns

DICOM_SUCCESS

The function was successful.

>0

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

This function will retrieve the attributes of the "Modality LUT Module" and store their values in the structure pointed to by pModalityLUTAttributes.

pModalityLUTAttributes->uStructSize will be set to the value of the parameter uStructSize.

If the function doesnt find any of the attributes of the "Modality LUT Module" it will set both pModalityLUTAttributes->bIsModalityLUTSequence and

pModalityLUTAttributes->bIsRescaleSlopeIntercept to FALSE. In this case the rest of the members of the pModalityLUTAttributes structure are undefined.

If the function finds the "Rescale Intercept" (0028,1052) and "Rescale Slope" (0028,1053) elements, it will set pModalityLUTAttributes->bIsRescaleSlopeIntercept to TRUE and populate pModalityLUTAttributes->RescaleIntercept, pModalityLUTAttributes->RescaleSlope and pModalityLUTAttributes->szRescaleType with the values retrieved from the DICOM dataset.

If the function finds "Modality LUT Sequence" (0028,3000), it will set pModalityLUTAttributes->bIsModalityLUTSequence to TRUE and populate pModalityLUTAttributes->LUTDescriptor, pModalityLUTAttributes->pszLUTExplanation and pModalityLUTAttributes->szModalityLUTType with the values retrieved from the DICOM dataset.

It is prohibited by the DICOM standard for both "Rescale Intercept" and "Modality LUT Sequence" to exist in the same DICOM dataset. However if this function encounters such a dataset, it will ignore "Modality LUT Sequence" and assume that only "Rescale Intercept" exists.

The Multi-frame Functional Groups module may have a Shared Functional Groups Sequence item, and/or a Per-frame Functional Groups Sequence item. Either of these items may have a Pixel Value Transformation Sequence (0028,9145) item. If the following elements are not found at the top level in the dataset, this method looks in the Shared Functional Groups Sequence item and the Per-frame Functional Groups Sequence items.
