SetModalityLut(int,DicomModalityLutAttributes,int[],DicomSetImageFlags) Method

Sets the attributes that describe the Modality LUT.
public void SetModalityLut( 
   int frameIndex, 
   DicomModalityLutAttributes attributes, 
   int[] data, 
   DicomSetImageFlags flags 
public void setModalityLut(int frameIndex, DicomModalityLutAttributes attributes, int[]data, int dicomSetImageFlags) 
void SetModalityLut(  
   int frameIndex, 
   DicomModalityLutAttributes^ attributes, 
   array<int>^ data, 
   DicomSetImageFlags flags 


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

The Modality LUT attributes to set.

Array of integers that holds the "LUT Data".

determines how the modality LUT is stored


This method will set the attributes of the "Modality LUT Module". If you are trying to set the "Rescale Intercept" (0028,1052) and "Rescale Slope" (0028,1053), set IsRescaleSlopeIntercept to true, and populate RescaleIntercept and RescaleSlope with the new values. You can also populate RescaleType if you want to set "Rescale Type" (0028,1054).

If you are trying to set the elements under "Modality LUT Sequence", set IsModalityLutSequence to true, and populate FirstStoredPixelValueMapped, NumberOfEntries, EntryBits, and LutType. In this case, [data](" id="dataparameterlink" class="popuplink.html) should hold the "LUT Data" (0028,3006).

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 Pixel Value Transformation Sequence (0028,9145) item. The flags parameter can be used to add or modify existing information in the Pixel Value Transformation Sequence. The following flags are used only if the Pixel Value Transformation Sequence does not already exist.

  • DicomSetImageFlags.MfgVoiLutPerFrame
  • DicomSetImageFlags.MfgModalityLutShared In this case, the sequence is placed in the sequence indicated by the flag (Per-frame Functional Groups Sequence or Shared Functional Groups Sequence). If a Pixel Value Transformation 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: (0028,9145) Pixel Value Transformation Sequence child elements

Tag Name
(0028,1052) Rescale Intercept
(0028,1053) Rescale Slope
(0028,1054) Rescale Type

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