Quickly and easily customize the DICOM Element Tag table by editing the dicTableElement.xml file that is found in the LEADTOOLS Sample Images folder.  The dicTableElement.xml file is a human-readable XML file that lists all of the DICOM Element Tags currently defined in the DICOM Specification.  You can edit this with any text editor (i.e. notepad) to add or remove DICOM Elements. Then call LDicomTag::LoadXml() and pass the full path of the dicTableElement.xml file.   Note that calling LoadXml() will first remove all DICOM elements that are already present in the table.

For the default values for the DICOM ELement Tag Table, refer to the Default Data Element Tag Table.

For more information, refer to the Working with DICOM Tables topic.
