Python package for managing DICOM images from different modalities

Project description

Dicom Image Tools

The dicom image tools package was created for giving a framework handling DICOM image data. Adding functionality often used for programmatic image analysis.

The package is still in early development and more features will be added.

Install Dicom Image Tools

Install using pipenv by running:

$ pipenv install dicom-image-tools

Install using pip by running:

$ pip install dicom-image-tools

Only Python 3.7+ is supported.


When you've installed the package you import it as any other package using

import dicom_image_tools

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 = True

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.

The 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 CompleteMetadata attribute.
