Welcome to dicom_parser’s documentation!


dicom_parser is a utility python package meant to facilitate access to DICOM header information by extending the functionality of pydicom.

Essentially, dicom_parser uses DICOM’s data-element value representation (VR) and prior knowledge on vendor-specific private tags or encoding schemes, to transform raw dicom data to more “pythonic” data structures (for a complete comparison, see Value Representation).


To install the latest version of dicom_parser, simply run:

pip install dicom_parser
