SetWindow(int,int,DicomWindowAttributes,DicomSetImageFlags) Method

Summary

Sets the attributes that describe the "Window Center" and "Window Width".

Syntax
C#
VB
C++
Java
Public Overloads Sub SetWindow( _ 
   ByVal frameIndex As Integer, _ 
   ByVal index As Integer, _ 
   ByVal attributes As DicomWindowAttributes, _ 
   ByVal flags As DicomSetImageFlags _ 
)  
public void setWindow(int frameIndex, int index, DicomWindowAttributes attributes, int dicomSetImageFlags) 

Parameters

frameIndex
A zero-based index that identifies the frame number in the dataset. If the dataset does not support Multi-frames, this parameter is ignored.

index
The zero-based index of the window center, window width value, to update. 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.

attributes
The window-related attributes to set.

flags
determines how the VOI LUT is set

Remarks

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

If "Window Center" (0028,1050) does not already exist in the Data Set, this method will insert it and set its value to WindowCenter.

If "Window Width" (0028,1051) does not already exist in the Data Set, this method will isnert it and set its value to WindowWidth.

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.

  • DicomSetImageFlags.MfgVoiLutPerFrame
  • DicomSetImageFlags.MfgVoiLutShared In this case, the sequence is placed in the sequence indicated by the (Per-frame Functional Groups Sequence or Shared Functional Groups Sequence) flag. 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: (0028,9132) Frame VOI LUT Sequence Child Elements

Tag Name
(0028,1050) Window Center
(0028,1051) Window Width
(0028,1055) Window Center & Width Explanation

Valid flags are DicomSetImageFlags.None, DicomSetImageFlags.MfgOverwriteShared, DicomSetImageFlags.MfgVoiLutPerFrame, DicomSetImageFlags.MfgVoiLutShared. All other flags are ignored. For a detailed discussion on Multi-frame Functional Groups see the topic Multi-frame Functional Groups.

Example

This example will initialize a new DICOM command set that supports Multi-frame functional groups Two VOI LUT will be added to the dataset at the per frame level The VOI LUT from the second frame is retrieved Finally, the VOI LUT from the second frame is deleted
