The Data Set being saved

The stream where the output XML file is written

Flags that affect how binary data and other information is saved in the XML output file


Use this method to save a DicomDataSet as an XML stream. By default, all binary data is written using Base64 encoding, but this behavior can be modified by passing appropriate DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags

Pass the DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags.NativeDicomModel flag to save as the 'Native DICOM Model' XML format described in PS3.19.A.1 of the DICOM Specification. One of the following flags can be used together with the DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags.NativeDicomModel flag to control how binary data is written. If DicomDataSetSaveXmlFlags.NativeDicomModel, is not also included, all of the following flags are ignored. Callers should only pass one of the three flags. If more than one of the flags is passed, precedence is given in the order that they appear below.

  • InlineBinary
  • BulkDataUri
  • BulkDataUuid

If none of these three flags are passed, the default behavior is BulkDataUuid. The output XML file can be customized by passing the optional SaveXmlCallback delegate. For more information on this, see the documentation and example for SaveXmlCallback.


For an example, refer to LoadXml.
