Leadtools.Dicom.Annotations.dll -
Leadtools.Dicom.Annotations.DicomAnnotationsUtilities

Provides the main functionality for converting LEADTOOLS Annotations to and from the DICOM format specified in part 3 of the DICOM Specification, under the description for the “Graphic Annotation Module” (i.e., DICOM Annotations).

In addition, there are methods and properties that allow you to do the following:

  • Convert LEAD annotations to the DICOM Annotation format (DICOM Text Object, DICOM Graphic Object, DICOM Compound Graphic). Some conversions of LEAD annotation objects allow the Presentation State Module of a DICOM Grayscale Softcopy Presentation State to be specified.
  • Convert annotations stored in the DICOM Annotation format to a LEAD Annotation.
