File Formats: DICOM Format (DIC)

Note: This format is supported only in Document/Medical.

DICOM (DIC) files are commonly used in medical images. LEADTOOLS reads a broad range of DICOM formats, converting them to LEAD-supported bits-per-pixel as necessary. LEADTOOLS writes DICOM files in the LEAD-supported bits-per-pixel. DICOM files can contain many comment fields of various types. You can use the RasterCodecs.ReadComment method to read comments in an existing file. Before writing a file use the RasterCodecs.WriteComments method to write comments to a file.

You can read DICOM files as follows:

You can write DICOM files as 8, 12, or 16-bit grayscale, 8-bit palletized color, or 24-bit RGB color (8 bits per plane).

The file constants associated with this file format are:
