Example
C#
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Dicom; 
 
 
public void TestOverlay() 
{ 
   string dicomFileName = Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir, "DICOM", "Overlay.dcm"); 
   //Make sure to initialize the DICOM engine, this needs to be done only once  
   //In the whole application 
   DicomEngine.Startup(); 
   using (DicomDataSet ds = new DicomDataSet()) 
   { 
      //Load DICOM File 
      ds.Load(dicomFileName, DicomDataSetLoadFlags.None); 
 
      if (ds.OverlayCount > 0) 
      { 
         RasterOverlayAttributes attributes = ds.GetOverlayAttributes(0); 
         if (attributes != null) 
         { 
            // We can call in here methods like GetOverlayGroupNumber, IsOverlayInDataset  
            // and GetOverlayActivationLayer to get some further infromation about the overlay 
 
            //Let's get the overlay Image, If RasterOverlayAttributes.NumFramesInOverlay  
            //Is greater than 1 we can call GetOverlayImages to extract all the frames 
            RasterImage overlayImage = ds.GetOverlayImage(0); 
            if (overlayImage != null) 
            { 
               using (DicomDataSet ds1 = new DicomDataSet()) 
               { 
                  ds1.Initialize(DicomClassType.DXImageStoragePresentation, DicomDataSetInitializeType.ExplicitVRLittleEndian); 
                  ds1.SetOverlayAttributes(0, attributes, DicomSetOverlayFlags.None); 
                  ds1.SetOverlayImage(0, overlayImage);//We can call SetOverlayImages if the overlay has more than one frame 
                  ds1.Save(Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir, "DICOM", "NewOverlay.dcm"), DicomDataSetSaveFlags.None); 
               } 
            } 
         } 
      }
