Header File Format

Ye Chen
Hello,
I am trying to understand the source code of TiffDecoder.java. It will be
easy for me to understand why it was coded like that if I know the format
of tiff header file. So is there anyone to know where I can find reference
to describe the format of Tiff header file as well as header file format
for other image types like JPEG, BMP.

Thanks in advance

Ye Chen,

Following is a link to a site I came across when I was looking up
something similar; it has information on many different (2D) file
formats.

http://www.dcs.ed.ac.uk/home/mxr/gfx/2d-hi.html

If you need information on 3D formats, the link is similar:

http://www.dcs.ed.ac.uk/home/mxr/gfx/3d-hi.html

Finally, the site itself lists some other helpful information:

Hope this helps,

DICOM related Show Info question

Michal Lijowski
What does it mean if a tag from DICOM file in output from Show Info
is marked by >
e.g.

0020,0032  >Image Position (Patient): +0.000000e+000\+0.000000e+000\
+0.000000e+000
0020,0037  >Image Orientation (Patient): +0.000000e+000\+0.000000e+000\
+0.000000e+000\+0.000000e+000\+0.000000e+000\+0.000000e+000
0054,0200  >Start Angle: 180

  Thanks,

> 0054,0200  >Start Angle: 180

It means that the tags are part of a sequence. In this example

    0054,0220  View Code Sequence:
    0008,0100  >Code Value: R-10242
    0008,0102  >Coding Scheme Designator: SNM3
    0008,0104  >Code Meaning: cranio-caudal

the Code Value, Code Scheme Designator and Code Meaning tags are in the
View Code Sequence.
