Printing DICOM Image buffer without header information using a DICOM Printer
The requirement is that the SCP should only print the DICOM image
information and not the image header information. All the header
details such as
patient name, patient ID, Acquisition details are all hardcoded in the
image pixel. Hence there is no need to print the DICOM header. The
DICOM Image header provided by the client will have dummy values.
There are three queries based on this requirement:
1. Do majority of DICOM printers support printing only the image
buffer and not the header information?
2. Does this violate the DICOM compliance in any manner?
3. How do we indicate to the Print SCP that he has to print only the
DICOM image buffer and not the header?

I am experiencing a strange behaviour while trying to have a Siemens US
modality (Siemens Antares) correctly work with my DICOM printer
emulator (working as a DICOM Print SCP).
The Siemens Antares modality works as a DICOM Print SCU. When requested
to print a certain US image by the operator, it correctly completes the
association with my DICOM Print SCP, negotiating support for the
abstract syntaxes 1.2.840.10008.5.1.1.9, 1.2.840.10008.5.1.1.14 and
1.2.840.10008.5.1.1.18, which are all supported by my DICOM Print SCP
Then, the Siemens Antares SCU send an N-GET-RQ...dicom to dicom converter

It depends on what you call proprietary dicom and it depends on what
you call standard dicom image :)

...Dicom headers query, specifically Dicom RT
Hi to all,
Just had a quick question about accessing the full parameter list for dicom/dicom RT files. I am using someone else's starter code to open the dicom RT file and when I display the header not all of the available parameters are listed there. In the code template that I am using several paramters are referenced but I have no idea where they are coming from. They appear to be very useful and I would like to be able to manipulate them in later coding I just have no idea how extensive the final list is or where to begin to look for it!

...Dicom RT/ Dicom overlays
First off, I am new to the site so please bear with me and feel free to offer up any advice on how to better pose questions for this forum. Now on to the nitty gritty.
I am currently trying to overlay contours contained in a Dicom RT 'STRUCT' file onto CT slices that are in the standard Dicom format. So far I have been able to overlay the contour (of a Brainstem) onto the correct CT slice. The problem arises from there being an inherent offset of the contour to the actual CT slice. I am trying to rectify this but have been unsuccessful so far.
I have noticed that the header of...New release of DICOM Detective available (a DICOM capture file and DICOM file viewer)

If I remember correctly, the DVTk (http://dvtk.org/) contains a
DICOM print server emulator that is freely available.
Furthermore there is DCMPRINT, an extension of DCMTK which contains a
fairly comprehensive print server (not related to the simple print server
in Dicomscope), but this is not free software. Free evaluation versions
are available, however - see http://dicom.offis.de/evaluation.php.en

is there a possibility to export a file from Matlab into Dicom which
can be opened with the MPI-Tool.
The image processing toolbox contains a nice interface to handle
dicom files. See the help for:
I also suggest to use the available latest ImgProc tlbx for you,
because the most of new release of ImgProcTlbx has new extensions for
the dicom functions.

and provides "Network Application Entities", which itself are
available/uses a sub-set of the "Network Connections" contained by the

According that, your client represent a DICOM Device with only one
