Example: Creating a New Series
When writing a modified image to a DICOM file, you might want to make the modified image the start of a new series. In the DICOM standard, images can be organized into series. When you write an image with metadata to a DICOM file,
dicomwrite puts the image in the same series by default. To create a new series, you must assign a new DICOM unique identifier to the
SeriesInstanceUID metadata field. This example illustrates this process:
imtool. Because the DICOM image data is signed 16-bit data, you must use the autoscaling syntax.
To remove these text characters, the example sets all pixels with the maximum value to the minimum value.
