dckey - ACR/NEMA DICOM PS3 ... Extract attribute values
dckey [ -ignorereaderrors ] [ -v|verbose ] [ -filename ] [ -describe ] [ -brief ] [ -d|decimal ] [ -key|k elementname|(0xgggg,0xeeee) ] ...
dckey reads the named dicom input file and displays the values of the selected attributes.
Binary attributes are written in hexadecimal with a preceding "0x" and numeric string attributes are written in decimal as they are encoded, unless the -decimal option is specified.
The attribute values, description and verbose output go to standard error.
The basic input switches are described in dcintro(1). Options specific to this program are:
% dckey -key Rows -key Columns -key ImageLocation
(0x0028,0x0010) US Rows VR=<US> VL=<0x0002> [0x0100]
(0x0028,0x0011) US Columns VR=<US> VL=<0x0002> [0x0100]
Error - Not found - (0x0028,0x0200) US Image Location
% dckey -k Rows -k ImagePositionPatient
-k StudyDate -k StudyTime
-k SOPClassUID test.dc3
% dckey -d -k Rows test.dc3
% dckey -brief -k Rows -k Columns test.dc3

Attempts to extract sequences or OB,OW attributes may fail nastily.
The order in which the attributes are extracted and written is not the same order as they are specified on the command line, and should not be depended on.
The -describe and other options cannot be used at the same time.
The -decimal option uses a double conversion before displaying the value and there may be sign extension and precision issues with some values.
The reading of the attributes from the DICOM file will not proceed past the top level Pixel Data attribute, in order to accelerate the speed of reading.
