Our software allows customers to store dicom studies into PACS systems.
Customers asked if they can edit some dicom attributes before storing, like:
Patient ID (0x0010, 0x0020)
Accession number (0x0008, 0x0050)
Study description (0x0008, 0x1030)
Pixel data and another attributes remains the same.
I am looking for information in dicom standard(preferred) or some article that describes rules to match dicom standard when performing such changes.
After reading Dicom standard Part 10: Media Storage and File Format for Media Interchange, Table 7.1-1 DICOM File Meta Information I have concluded that in addition to above 3 attributes from DataSet our software must modify following 2 attributes in meta-header:
Implementation Class UID (0002,0012)
Implementation Version Name (0002,0013)
I have searched for answer in this google group and found following topic:
Above topic referes to http://gdcm.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Writing_DICOM#Derived_DICOM_Images
Does it mean that we need to insert Original Attributes Sequence (0400,0561)
element and set all attributes:
-Source of Previous Values (0400,0564)
-Attribute Modification Datetime (0400,0562)
-Modifying System (0400,0563)
-Reason for the Attribute Modification (0400,0565)
-Modified Attributes Sequence (0400,0550)
this element will include list of updated attributes
What are additional attributes that must be changed as part of edit operation?
Is it mandatory to change Sop/Series/StudyInstanceUID?
Best regards, Alexander
