Importing DICOM images
There are two functions for importing DICOM images,
import_dicom_file(file: pathlib.Path) and
import_dicom_from_folder(folder: pathlib.Path, recursively: bool = True).
The latter function has an optional input argument for specifying if the folder given should be searched for DICOM files recursively, default =
Both will return the image/-s in
DicomStudy objects, the
import_dicom_from_folder function returns a dictionary with the Study Instance UID as the key and the corresponding
DicomStudy object as value.
You can then add additional files to the
DicomStudy object through the
DicomStudy.add_file which takes the file path as a
pathlib.Path object as input.
DicomStudy.Series is a list of all series belonging to the study that has been imported. Each
DicomStudy.Series item is an object containing the image/image volume and metadata for each image. The image/image volume is accessed through the
ImageVolume attribute of the
DicomStudy.Series item, and the metadata in the
