Checking the md5sum of the Pixel Data

After compressing a DICOM file (see gdcmconv) using a lossless compression algorithm, it is fairly easy to compare the two files for differences at DICOM attribute level. However one operation is slightly easier to do: how to make sure the compression was actually lossless ? In this case one could use the --md5sum operation.

Take an uncompressed DICOM image file:

 
 $ gdcminfo --md5sum SIEMENS_ImageLocationUN.dcm
 

The tool return: 0621954acd5815e0b4f7b65fcc6506b1

Now compress this file:

 
 $ gdcmconv --jpegls SIEMENS_ImageLocationUN.dcm lossless_compressed.dcm
 

and then check again the md5sum:

 
 $ gdcminfo --md5sum lossless_compressed.dcm
 

The tool return: 0621954acd5815e0b4f7b65fcc6506b1

Checking if Pixel Data is lossless

In come environment one wish to check whether or not the DICOM file is lossless or not. It is fairly easy to do that in most cases. Only in two occasion this is not clear from the sole DICOM Attribute. When the Transfer Syntax is JPEG 2000 Image Compression (1.2.840.10008.1.2.4.91) and when the Transfer Syntax is JPEG-LS Lossy (Near-Lossless) Image Compression (1.2.840.10008.1.2.4.81).

In this case, the only solution is to open the Pixel Data element, read the specific JPEG header and check whether or not the JPEG transformation was lossless or not:

 
 $ gdcminfo --check-compression gdcmData/MAROTECH_CT_JP2Lossy.dcm
 

The tool returns: 'Encapsulated Stream was found to be: lossy'
