LDicomDS::GetOverlayBitmap

#include "ltdic.h"

L_UINT16 LDicomDS::GetOverlayBitmap(uOverlayIndex,pBitmap,uStructSize,uFlags)

Retrieves the "Overlay Data" (60xx,3000) for the specified overlay index.

Parameters

L_UINT uOverlayIndex

The index of the overlay for which to get the bitmap. This index is zero-based.

pBITMAPHANDLE pBitmap

Pointer to a bitmap handle which will be filled with the overlay data. Cannot be NULL.

L_UINT uStructSize

Size of the BITMAPHANDLE structure. Pass sizeof(BITMAPHANDLE).

L_UINT uFlags

Reserved for future use. Pass 0.

Returns

Value Meaning
0 The function was successful.
> 0 An error occurred. Refer to Return Codes.

Comments

This function will extract the "Overlay Data" (60xx,3000) for an overlay, initialize and allocate pBitmap based on the "Overlay Columns" (60xx,0011) and "Overlay Rows"(60xx,0010), and then fill pBitmap with the stream of bytes under the "Overlay Data" (60xx,3000) element.

NOTE: pBitmap is assumed to be unallocated and uninitiated. It will be filled without freeing the existing data.

If the function does not find the "Overlay Data" element inside the dataset it will return DICOM_ERROR_OVERLAY_DATA_MISSING.

Before calling this function you must call LDicomDS::GetOverlayAttributes to determine if the overlay pixel data is embedded in the "Image Pixel Data" (7FE0,0010) element or is under "Overlay Data" (60xx,3000) element. If the overlay data is embedded in the "Image Pixel Data", the flag OVERLAY_USEBITPLANE will be set inside pOverlayAttributes->uFlags (pOverlayAttributes is the OVERLAYATTRIBUTES structure returned by the LDicomDS::GetOverlayAttributes function).

If the overlay pixel data is embedded in the "Image Pixel Data" (7FE0, 0010), follow these steps to get the overlay data as a bitmap handle:

  1. Call one of the functions which can be used to extract the "Image Pixel Data", such as LDicomDS::GetImage. This will return a bitmap handle populated with the "Image Pixel Data" which has the overlay data embedded. For this example, assume that the bitmap handle returned by this function is called pMainBitmap.
  2. Call LDicomDS::GetOverlayAttributes to get the attributes of the overlay. For this example, assume that the OVERLAYATTRIBUTES structure returned by this function is called pOverlayAttributes.
  3. Now we need to add our overlay as one of the overlays associated with pMainBitmap. To do that we need to call:

    LBitmap::SetOverlayAttributes(pMainBitmap,0,pOverlayAttributes, OVERLAYATTRIBUTES_FLAGS | OVERLAYATTRIBUTES_BITINDEX |OVERLAYATTRIBUTES_ORIGIN |OVERLAYATTRIBUTES_DICOM | OVERLAYATTRIBUTES_COLOR); 

    • We are assuming that this is the first overlay in the bitmap this is why we are passing 0 as the overlay index.
  4. Now we need to extract the overlay data from the main image data:

    LBitmap::UpdateOverlayBits(pMainBitmap,0, SETOVERLAYBITS_FROMBITMAP); 

  5. Now call LBitmap::GetOverlay to get the overlay data itself as a bitmap handle.

Example

This example will extract the overlays from a
DICOM dataset and associate them with a bitmap,
the bitmap is assumed to be extracted from the
same DICOM dataset.
