L_DicomGetBinaryValue2

#include "ltdic.h"

L_LTDIC_API L_BOOL L_DicomGetBinaryValue2(hDS, pElement, pValue, nOffset, nLength)

HDICOMDS hDS;

a DICOM handle

pDICOMELEMENT pElement;

pointer to a DICOMELEMENT structure

L_VOID *pValue;

pointer to a buffer

L_DICOM_OFFSET nOffset;

offset in the buffer to begin

L_UINT32 nLength;

length of the buffer

Updates a buffer with a binary value.

Parameter Description
hDS

A DICOM handle.

pElement

Pointer to a DICOMELEMENT structure within the Data Set.

pValue

Buffer that will be updated with the value of the binary value associated with the specified item in the Data Set. You are responsible for allocating the memory for this buffer.

nOffset

Offset, in bytes, to the start position in the buffer where the data will be written.

nLength

Length, in bytes, of the buffer you allocated.

Returns

TRUE

The function is able to update the buffer with the binary value.

FALSE

The function cannot update the buffer with a binary value.

Comments

Note: You must allocate the memory for pValue.

The DICOMELEMENT structure has a member also called nLength. If this nLength value is greater than the nLength of the buffer you allocated (pValue), then the binary value copied into pValue will be truncated to the smaller length. If the nLength of the DICOMELEMENT is shorter than the nLength of pValue, the entire binary value associated with the DICOMELEMENT will be copied into pValue.

This function can be called for every Value Representation, and it will return the exact value in the Value Field (unconverted).
