Example

This example loads a DICOM file, and finds the physical offset of the TAG_PATIENT_ID in the file.

L_INT LDicomDS_GetElementOffsetExample()  
{ 
   L_INT nRet = -1; 
 
   LDicomDS *ds = new LDicomDS(); 
   if (ds == NULL) 
      return nRet; 
 
   L_TCHAR *pszFile = MAKE_IMAGE_PATH(TEXT("image2.dcm")); 
   nRet = ds->LoadDS(pszFile, DS_LOAD_STORE_OFFSETS); 
   if(nRet != DICOM_SUCCESS) 
      return nRet; 
 
   pDICOMELEMENT pElement = ds->FindFirstElement(NULL, TAG_PATIENT_ID, TRUE); 
   if (pElement == NULL) 
      return -1; 
 
   // uOffset will contain the file offset of the TAG_PATIENT_ID element 
   L_UINT64 uOffset = ds->GetElementOffset(pElement); 
   CString csMsg; 
   csMsg.Format(TEXT("The offset of the TAG_PATIENT_ID in file '%s' is: 0x%x"), pszFile, uOffset); 
   OutputDebugString(csMsg); 
 
   // Clean up 
   delete ds; 
 
   return nRet; 
}
