Version 16 of this C API has changed from version 15 as follows:
LEADTOOLS medical imaging now supports all IODs and TAGS in 2008 base standard of DICOM 3.
LEADTOOLS version 16 now supports UNICODE and ANSI versions of the C API dlls. For information on the required dll name and import library, please refer to Files To Be Included With Your Application.
LEADTOOLS DICOM version 16 adds support for reading and writing DICOM data sets with 1-bit image data.
LEADTOOLS DICOM version 16 supports for creating/working with DICOM encapsulated documents.
LEADTOOLS DICOM version 16 supports for multi-frame functional groups.
LEADTOOLS DICOM version 16 enhanced DICOM communications.
DICOM IOD tables and context mapping tables are now loaded on demand instead of at startup. Tables can optionally be not loaded at all, or loaded partially.
When creating DICOMDIR with icon image or image preview for multi-frame DICOM, you can use representative Frame Number (0028, 6010) tag for the image frame.
Additional high level interfaces were added to simplify the handling and creation of Enhanced MR and CT with Shared Functional Groups and Per-Frame Functional Groups.
Also, additional high level interfaces were added to handle the following:
Multi-Frame Functional Groups
