I have been unable to find MathWorks documentation explaining each of the dicominfo metadata entries, e.g. the meaning of [0;1] for "FileMetaInformationVersion". Must I simply look through the DICOM Standard? Do you have other recommendations? (My goal is to align contours with the dose distribution.)
Indeed, whereas MATLAB reports an ROIContourSequence, the Standard's section 'C.8.8.6 ROI Contour Module' does explain its structure fields 'ROIDisplayColor', 'ContourSequence', 'ReferencedROINumber'.
The DICOM Standard is so verbose, however, that I think it would save time if MathWorks would add a lookup function to provide a brief explanation (perhaps even quoting from the Standard) for each metadata entry. For example,
ans = Uniquely identifies the referenced ROI described in the Structure Set ROI Sequence (3006,0020). (C.8.8.6 ROI Contour Module of the DICOM Standard)
It seems to me this is something WolframAlpha would do. Would implementing this feature put MathWorks in undesired competition?
In your experience, are Internet searches the fastest way to learn what is returned by dicominfo, rather than sifting through the DICOM Standard?
