dctable - ACR/NEMA DICOM PS3 ... DICOM PS3 - Make tables of attribute values
dctable " inputfile1 [ inputfile2 ... ]" [ -ignorereaderrors ] [ -v|verbose ] [ -r|recurse ] [ -describe ] [ -nofilename ] [ -noembeddedquotes|decimal ] [ -key|k elementname|(0xgggg,0xeeee) ] ... [ -input-nometa ] [ -input-ts uid ] [ -input-default ] [ -input-byteorder|-input-endian big|little ] [ -input-vr implicit|explicit ]
dctable reads the named dicom input files and creates a tab delimited table of the values of the selected attributes, with each value enclosed in double quotes.
Binary attributes are written in hexadecimal with a preceding "0x". Numeric string attributes are written in decimal.
The first column always contains the filenames.
A header is a added only if the -describe option is specified.
If a specified attribute is not present in a file, then it the corresponding entry in the table will be empty (i.e. two consecutive quotes" but this is not reported as an error.
The table of attribute values go to standard output, and the verbose output and errors go to standard error.
The basic input switches are described in dcintro(1). Options specific to this program are:
% dctable -k Rows -k Columns
"Filename" "Rows" "Columns"
"test.dc3" "0x0100" "0x0100"

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.
