Example

This example loads a DICOM file, and finds the physical offset of the TAG_PATIENT_ID in the file.

#define MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(pFileName) TEXT("C:\\Users\\Public\\Documents\\LEADTOOLS Images\\")pFileName 
L_LTDICTEX_API L_VOID DicomGetElementOffsetExample() 
{ 
   HDICOMDS hDS = L_DicomCreateDS(NULL); 
   if (hDS == NULL) 
      return; 
   L_TCHAR *pszFile = MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(TEXT("image2.dcm")); 
   L_DicomLoadDS(hDS, pszFile, DS_LOAD_STORE_OFFSETS); 
   pDICOMELEMENT pElement = L_DicomFindFirstElement(hDS, NULL, TAG_PATIENT_ID, TRUE); 
   if (pElement == NULL) 
      return; 
   // uOffset will contain the file offset of the TAG_PATIENT_ID element 
   L_INT64 uOffset = L_DicomGetElementOffset(hDS, pElement); 
   L_TCHAR szMsg[200]={0}; 
   wsprintf(szMsg, TEXT("The offset of the TAG_PATIENT_ID in file '%s' is: 0x%x"), pszFile, uOffset); 
   OutputDebugString(szMsg); 
   // Clean up 
   L_DicomFreeDS(hDS);
