L_DicomGetFirstContextGroup

#include "ltdic.h"

L_LTDIC_API pDICOMCONTEXTGROUP L_DicomGetFirstContextGroup()

Returns a pointer to the first Context Group in the Context Group Table.

Returns

!NULL

Pointer to a DICOMCONTEXTGROUP structure that specifies the first Context Group in the Context Group Table.

NULL

The Context Group Table is empty.

Comments

To add Context Groups to the Context Group Table, use the L_DicomLoadContextGroup and L_DicomInsertContextGroup functions.

Along with this function, the following functions can be used to maneuver through the Context Groups in the Context Group Table:

L_DicomGetLastContextGroup

L_DicomGetNextContextGroup

L_DicomGetPrevContextGroup

You can also use the L_DicomGetCountContextGroup and L_DicomFindIndexContextGroup functions to enumerate the Context Groups in the table.

To investigate the Coded Concepts of a Context Group, use the following functions:

L_DicomGetFirstCodedConcept

L_DicomGetLastCodedConcept

L_DicomGetNextCodedConcept

L_DicomGetPrevCodedConcept

L_DicomGetCountCodedConcept

L_DicomFindIndexCodedConcept
