To embed a document, such as a PDF, within a DICOM file, you will need to call the L_DicomSetEncapsulatedDocument method passing in the dataset you wish to add to, and DICOMENCAPSULATEDDOCUMENT and DICOMCODESEQUENCEITEM structures with relevant metadata. Here, I have created a project that adds the common Leadtools.pdf to the image2.dcm file, both from the LEADTOOLS Images folder, along with some sample metadata and saves to the same directory.

A simplified approach is as follows:
Code:

#define IMAGE_PATH _T("C:\\Users\\Public\\Documents\\LEADTOOLS Images\\")
#define INPUT_DICOM_FILE IMAGE_PATH _T("image2.dcm")
#define INPUT_DOCUMENT_FILE IMAGE_PATH _T("Leadtools.pdf")
#define OUTPUT_DICOM_FILE IMAGE_PATH _T("Encapsulated.dcm")

// Declare a DICOM dataset handle, encapsulatedDocument, and conceptNameCodeSequence
HDICOMDS hDS = NULL;
DICOMENCAPSULATEDDOCUMENT encapsulatedDocument = { 0 };
DICOMCODESEQUENCEITEM conceptNameCodeSequence = { 0 };
pDICOMELEMENT pElement = NULL;

// Start the DICOM engine
L_DicomStartUp();

// Open the existing DICOM Dataset
hDS = L_DicomCreateDS(NULL);
L_DicomLoadDS(hDS, INPUT_DICOM_FILE, 0);

// TODO: Populate encapsulatedDocument and conceptNameCodeSequence

// Add the encapsulated document element
pElement = L_DicomFindFirstElement(hDS, NULL, TAG_ENCAPSULATED_DOCUMENT, L_TRUE);
if (pElement != NULL)
   pElement = L_DicomInsertElement(hDS, NULL, L_FALSE, TAG_ENCAPSULATED_DOCUMENT,
      VR_UN, L_FALSE, 0);

// Add the encapsulated document container to the DICOM dataset
L_DicomSetEncapsulatedDocument(hDS, pElement, L_FALSE, INPUT_DOCUMENT_FILE,
   &encapsulatedDocument, &conceptNameCodeSequence);

// Save the Dataset to a new file
L_DicomSaveDS(hDS, OUTPUT_DICOM_FILE, 0);

// Cleanup
L_DicomFreeDS(hDS);
L_DicomShutDown();

To retrieve an encapsulated document from a DICOM dataset, or to read the metadata associated with one, please refer to this forum post.
