Summary
Loads the contents of a DICOM encoded JSON file.
Syntax
C#
C++
vb[VB Syntax] 
<ExtensionAttribute()> 
Public Overloads Shared Sub LoadJson( _ 
   ByVal _ds_ As DicomDataSet, _ 
   ByVal _fileName_ As String, _ 
   ByVal _jsonFlags_ As DicomDataSetLoadJsonFlags, _ 
   ByVal _cbBefore_ As LoadJsonBeforeElementCallback, _ 
   ByVal _cbAfter_ As LoadJsonAfterElementCallback _ 
) 

Parameters

ds
The Data Set that will be created and populated with the contents of the DICOM JSON input file

fileName
The name of the input JSON file

jsonFlags
Flags that affect whether to ignore binary or all data from the DICOM JSON input file

cbBefore
Optional callback that allows you to modify how the input JSON file elements, and values are used.

cbAfter
Optional callback that allows you to change the DicomElement after it has been added to the DicomDataSet.

Remarks

Use this method to read the contents of a DICOM JSON file. The DICOM JSON file can be created using SaveJson By default, all binary data is read from the DICOM input JSON file, but this behavior can be modified by passing appropriate DicomDataSetLoadJsonFlags

The way that this method processes the input JSON file elements, and element values can be customized by passing the optional LoadJsonBeforeElementCallback delegate. For more information on this, see the documentation and example for LoadJsonBeforeElementCallback. The DicomElement themselves can be modified after they have been added to the DicomDataSet by passing the optional LoadJsonAfterElementCallback delegate. For more information on this, see the documentation and example for LoadJsonAfterElementCallback.

Example

This example will load a sample DICOM data set, then save it as an JSON file (with no binary data), and then reload the JSON file into a DicomDataSet object

C#
using Leadtools.Dicom; 
using Leadtools.Dicom.Common; 
using Leadtools.Dicom.Common.Extensions; 
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Dicom.Common.Linq.BasicDirectory; 
using Leadtools.Dicom.Common.DataTypes; 
 
 
public void LoadJsonExample() 
{ 
   string dicomFileNameIn = Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir,"DICOM", "image3.dcm"); 
   string jsonFileNameOut = Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir, "test.json"); 
 
   // Initialize DICOM engine 
   DicomEngine.Startup(); 
 
   DicomDataSet ds = new DicomDataSet(); 
 
   // Load an existing DICOM file 
   ds.Load(dicomFileNameIn, DicomDataSetLoadFlags.None); 
 
   // Save as JSON with no binary data 
   // For the demo, keep the json output file size small by skipping the pixel data 
   const DicomDataSetSaveJsonFlags jsonFlags = DicomDataSetSaveJsonFlags.IgnoreBinaryData | 
                                               DicomDataSetSaveJsonFlags.TrimWhiteSpace; 
   ds.SaveJson(jsonFileNameOut, jsonFlags); 
 
   // Now reload the json file.   
   // Note that there will not be an image because we skipped the pixel data in the save 
   ds.LoadJson(jsonFileNameOut, DicomDataSetLoadJsonFlags.None); 
 
   DicomEngine.Shutdown(); 
}
