L_LTDIC_API L_UINT16 L_DicomSetWindow(hDS, uFrameIndex, uWindowIndex, pWindowAttributes, uFlags)

HDICOMDS hDS;

a DICOM handle

L_UINT32 uFrameIndex;

index value

L_UINT uWindowIndex;

the window index

pDICOMWINDOWATTRIBS pWindowAttributes;

pointer to a window attributes structure that holds the new values

L_UINT uFlags;

reserved for future use

Sets the attributes that describe window center and window width.

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.

uWindowIndex

Index to the window center , window width value to be updated. According to the DICOM standard if multiple values are present for the window center and window width, both attributes shall have the same number of values and shall be considered as pairs. This index is zero-based.

pWindowAttributes

Pointer to a structure containing the window-related attributes to set.

uFlags

0 -- Default

[0x008]

DICOM_SETIMAGE_MFG_OVERWRITE_SHARED If set, existing Frame VOI LUT Sequence items under the Shared Functional Groups Sequence will be overwritten.. If this flag is not included, Shared Functional Groups Sequence elements are unchanged.

[0x0010]

DICOM_SETIMAGE_MFG_VOI_LUT_PER_FRAME If the Frame VOI LUT Sequence does not already exist, it is added under the Per-frame Functional Groups Sequence.

If the Frame VOI LUT Sequence already exists under the Shared Functional Groups Sequence, this flag is ignored.  

[0x0020]

DICOM_SETIMAGE_MFG_VOI_LUT_SHARED If the Frame VOI LUT Sequence does not already exist, it is added under the Shared Functional Groups Sequence.

If the Frame VOI LUT Sequence already exists under the Per-frame Functional Groups Sequence, this flag is ignored.  

Returns

DICOM_SUCCESS

The function was successful.

>0

An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

This function will set the attributes that describe window center and window width.

Before calling this function, initialize pWindowAttributes->uStructSize to be sizeof (DICOMWINDOWATTRIBS) and initialize all the members of the structure.

If "Window Center" (0028,1050) does not already exist in the dataset this function will insert it and set its value to pWindowAttributes->fWindowCenter.

If "Window Width" (0028,1051) does not already exist in the dataset this function will insert it and set its value to pWindowAttributes->fWindowWidth.

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 Frame VOI LUT Sequence (0028,9132) item. The uFlags parameter can be used to add or modify existing information in the Frame VOI LUT Sequence.

The following flags are used only if the Frame VOI LUT Sequence does not already exist.

In this case, the sequence is placed in the sequence indicated by the flag (Per-frame Functional Groups Sequence or Shared Functional Groups Sequence).

If a Frame VOI LUT Sequence already exists in a DICOM dataset, uFlags is ignored and the sequence is placed in the location where sequences already exist.

The specific elements that are read or updated when using these flags are shown below:

Example

This example will add a new "Window Width" and "Window Center" to the dataset , or replace the existing one(s)

#define SET_SIZE(p) (p)->uStructSize = sizeof(*(p)); 
L_INT DicomSetWindowExample(HDICOMDS hDicomDS, L_UINT uBitsStored, L_BOOL bAdd)

      if(uRet != DICOM_SUCCESS) 
         return uRet;

   } 
   else 
   { 
      // This represents an identity VOI LUT transformation in the case 
      // where no Modality LUT is specified and the stored pixel data are 
      // uBitsStored bit unsigned integers. 
      WindowAttributes.fWindowWidth    = 1 << uBitsStored      ; 
      WindowAttributes.fWindowCenter   = 1 << (uBitsStored-1)  ; 
   } 
   uWindowIndex = uWindowCount; 
   if(!bAdd) 
   { 
      // Delete the existing window(s) 
      uRet = L_DicomDeleteWindow(hDicomDS, 0, 0); 
      if(uRet != DICOM_SUCCESS) 
         return uRet; 
      uWindowIndex = 0; 
   } 
   // Add the new window 
   return L_DicomSetWindow(hDicomDS, 0, uWindowIndex, &WindowAttributes, 0);
