GetImage Method

Summary

Returns the RasterImage contained in the DicomDataSet, but with the RasterViewPerspective changed accordingly from applying a PlaneOrientation to a given RasterViewPerspective.

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
<ExtensionAttribute()> 
Public Shared Function GetImage( _ 
   ByVal ds As DicomDataSet, _ 
   ByVal element As DicomElement, _ 
   ByVal index As Integer, _ 
   ByVal bitsPerPixel As Integer, _ 
   ByVal order As RasterByteOrder, _ 
   ByVal flags As DicomGetImageFlags, _ 
   ByVal orientation As OrientationConfiguration _ 
) As RasterImage 

Parameters

ds
The DicomDataSet that contains the image orientation vectors

element
An item in the Data Set.

index
The zero-based index of the frame to load.

bitsPerPixel
Value that represents the resulting image pixel depth. Possible values are:

Value Meaning
0 Keep the original file's pixel depth (do not convert).
1 to 8 The specified bits per pixel in the resulting image.
12 12 bits per pixel in the resulting image.
16 16 bits per pixel in the resulting image.
24 24 bits per pixel in the resulting image.
32 32 bits per pixel in the resulting image.

order
This value is ignored.

flags
Flags that control the behavior of this method.

orientation
An OrientationConfiguration that will be applied to the current view perspective.

Return Value

The image of a Pixel Data element.

Remarks

This method will load any image from ds, using element as the parent element to begin the search, where the element searched for is the PixelData element. The resulting image has its RasterViewPerspective changed accordingly from applying a PlaneOrientation to a given RasterViewPerspective.

The input view perspective is define by two values: the original RasterViewPerspective contained in ds, and a row and column orientation vector (which are read from the ds by searching for the DicomElement that has a tag of ImageOrientationPatient which contains the orientation vectors.).

Note that the orientation contains three lists of conditions (one for each 3D axis) that can be applied to the image contained in the ds if the condition is met.

Example

This example does the following:

  • Loads a DICOM dataset that contains orientation vectors that orient it as a coronal slice
  • Creates an OrientationConfiguration that contains a coronal PlaneOrientation that corresponds to a horizontal flip
  • Gets the image from the DICOM dataset and modifies the view perspective to reflect OrientationConfiguration
