dcmsplit(1) remove identifying fields from DICOM files


dcmsplit <file> ... [<flags>...]


dcmsplit is part of the VoxBo suite of tools for brain image analysis.

dcmsplit removes identifying elements from a DICOM file. It is not guaranteed to remove all identifying elements, nor does it address identifying information in the image data (e.g., facial features). But it might be useful as part of the de-identification process.

dcmsplit can optionally put the removed elements into a separate file, and can also remove custom-specified groups and elements. It can also run recursively on directories.

To see the list of groups/elements removed automatically, to get more help, and to get a complete list of available flags, run the program with no arguments.


Pre-built VoxBo binaries are available for Linux, OSX, and Cygwin, and via the NeuroDebian project (neuro.debian.net) for Debian derivatives.
