reserved for future use

Retrieves the "Overlay Data" (60xx,3000) for the specified overlay index.

Parameter

Description

hDS

A DICOM handle.

uOverlayIndex

The index of the overlay for which to get the bitmap. This index is zero-based.

pBitmap

Pointer to a bitmap handle which will be filled with the overlay data. Cannot be NULL.

uStructSize

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

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 extract the "Overlay Data" (60xx,3000) for an overlay, initialize and allocate pBitmap based on the "Overlay Columns" (60xx,0011) and "Overlay Rows"(60xx,0010), and then fill pBitmap with the stream of bytes under the "Overlay Data" (60xx,3000) element. Please note that pBitmap is assumed to be unallocated and un-initialized. It will be filled without freeing the existing data.

If the function doesnt find the "Overlay Data" element inside the dataset it will return DICOM_ERROR_OVERLAY_DATA_MISSING.

Before calling this function you must call L_DicomGetOverlayAttributes to determine if the overlay pixel data is embedded in the "Image Pixel Data" (7FE0,0010) element or is under "Overlay Data" (60xx,3000) element. If the overlay data is embedded in the "Image Pixel Data", the flag OVERLAY_USEBITPLANE will be set inside pOverlayAttributes->uFlags (pOverlayAttributes is the OVERLAYATTRIBUTES structure returned by the L_DicomGetOverlayAttributes function).

If the overlay pixel data is embedded in the "Image Pixel Data" (7FE0, 0010), follow these steps to get the overlay data as a bitmap handle:

1.

Call one of the functions that can be used to extract the "Image Pixel Data", such as L_DicomGetImage. This will return a bitmap handle populated with the "Image Pixel Data" which has the overlay data embedded. For this example, assume that the bitmap handle returned by this function is called pMainBitmap.

2.

Call L_DicomGetOverlayAttributes to get the attributes of the overlay. For this example, assume that the OVERLAYATTRIBUTES structure returned by this function is called pOverlayAttributes.

3.

Now we need to add our overlay as one of the overlays associated with pMainBitmap. To do that we need to call L_SetOverlayAttributes:

L_SetOverlayAttributes(pMainBitmap,0,pOverlayAttributes, OVERLAYATTRIBUTES_FLAGS | OVERLAYATTRIBUTES_BITINDEX | OVERLAYATTRIBUTES_ORIGIN | OVERLAYATTRIBUTES_DICOM | OVERLAYATTRIBUTES_COLOR);

We are assuming that this is the first overlay in the bitmap, thus we are passing 0 as the overlay index.

4.

Now we need extract the overlay data from the main image data:

L_UpdateBitmapOverlayBits(pMainBitmap,0, SETOVERLAYBITS_FROMBITMAP);

5.

Now call L_GetOverlayBitmap to get the overlay data itself as a bitmap handle.

This example will extract the overlays from a DICOM dataset and associate them with a bitmap, the bitmap is assumed to be extracted from the same DICOM dataset.
