IOD_TYPE_CLASS [0x00] Class type Information Object Definition.
IOD_TYPE_MODULE [0x01] Module type Information Object Definition.
IOD_TYPE_ELEMENT [0x02] Element type Information Object Definition.


Value that indicates whether the Information Object is mandatory, conditional or optional, and the type of usage. For a list of possible values, refer to IOD Usage Constants. For more information about mandatory, conditional, and optional IODs, refer to An Overview of Dicom or the DICOM Spec.


Character string that contains a description of the Information Object Definition.


Internally LEADTOOLS maintains a tree structure, referred to as the IOD Structure, of available Information Object Definitions (IODs). TheseIODs can include default IODs available in DICOM, as well as user defined IODs. You can access any of this information, add to the IOD Structure, or delete items from the IOD Structure using the LDicomIOD class.
