Image::ExifTool::DICOM(3) Read DICOM and ACR-NEMA medical images


This module is used by Image::ExifTool


This module contains routines required by Image::ExifTool to extract meta information from DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) DCM and ACR-NEMA (American College of Radiology - National Electrical Manufacturer's Association) ACR medical images.


Images compressed using the DICOM deflated transfer syntax will be decoded if Compress::Zlib is installed.

No translation of special characters sets is done.
