Pure python package for DICOM medical file reading and writing
DICOM is a standard (http://medical.nema.org) for communicating medical images and related information such as reports and radiotherapy objects.
pydicom makes it easy to read these complex files into natural pythonic structures for easy manipulation. Modified datasets can be written again to DICOM format files. See the Getting Started wiki page for installation and basic information, and the Pydicom User Guide page for an overview of how to use the pydicom library.
