ApplyLinearVoiLookupTableCommand Class

Sets up the paint or paint and image processing methods window leveling options for a specific image through a linear transformation described by the window center and width.

public ref class ApplyLinearVoiLookupTableCommand : public RasterCommand   

This command is available in the Document and Medical Imaging toolkits.

  • This class sets up the window-leveling options for paint or paint and image processing methods for a specific image through a linear transformation described by the window center and width. In the DICOM world, this remapping of the Lookup Table is referred to as "applying a linear VOI LookupTable (LookupTable)".
  • The DICOM standard states:
  • "Window Center and Window Width specify a linear conversion from stored pixel values (after any Modality LookupTable or Rescale Slope and Intercept specified in the IOD have been applied) to values to be displayed. Window Center contains the input value that is the center of the window. Window Width contains the width of the window." Refer to "VOI LookupTable (LookupTable) Module Attributes" in the DICOM standard for more details.
  • This class does not change the image data; it only updates the entries inside the image LookupTable.
  • It is best to always set the VoiLookupTableCommandFlags.UpdateMinMax flag.
  • In the DICOM world you must set the VoiLookupTableCommandFlags.ReverseOrder flag if the photometric interpretation of the image is "MONOCHROME1", where the minimum grayscale value is intended to be displayed as white after any VOI gray scale transformations have been performed.
  • This class supports 12 and 16-bit grayscale. Support for 12 and 16-bit grayscale is available only in the Document/Medical toolkits.
  • This command does not support 32-bit grayscale images.
