NAME

SYNOPSIS

file-in   DICOM input filename
file-out  DICOM output filename

OPTIONS


-i --input DICOM filename
-o --output DICOM filename

SPECIFIC OPTIONS


-S --split Split multiframes PAPYRUS 3.0 into multiples DICOM files
--decomp-pap3 Use PAPYRUS 3.0 for decompressing (can be combined with --split).
--check-iop Check that the Image Orientation (Patient) Attribute is ok (see --split).

-h --help

SIMPLE USAGE

gdcmpap3 is a great tool to convert broken PAPYRUS 3.0 implementation into properly parsable DICOM file. Usage is simply:

$ gdcmpap3 input.pa3 output.dcm

or if you prefer being explicit:

$ gdcmpap3 -i input.pa3 -o output.dcm

Even though gdcmpap3 can overwrite directly on the same file (input.pa3 = output.dcm), it is recommended that user should first convert into a different file to make sure the bug is properly handled by GDCM.
