The Leadtools.Dicom.Annotations assembly provides support for reading and writing LEADTOOLS annotations in a DICOM dataset.
The Leadtools.Dicom.Annotations assembly provides two approaches for handling annotations:
- In Part 3 of the DICOM Specification, the description for the “Graphic Annotation Module” describes how Annotations are to be stored in a DICOM Presentation State. The “Graphic Annotation Module” includes Text Objects, Graphic Objects, and Compound Graphics. LEADTOOLS has full support for converting between the LEADTOOLS Annotations and the DICOM Graphic Annotation Module in a DICOM Presentation State (i.e., DICOM Annotations). Some conversions of LEAD annotation objects allow the Presentation State Module of a DICOM Grayscale Softcopy Presentation State to be specified.
- Alternatively, there is support for reading and writing LEADTOOLS Annotations in the LEAD Native format as a private element in a DICOM dataset.
