Rename DICOM Files

The "Rename DICOM" function can be used to rename locally stored DICOM files according to information from selected fields of the headers.

Getting There

DICOM files can be renamed by selecting "Rename DICOM" under the Tools menu

Function

Choose which files to rename by using the "Add Files" button in the "Rename DICOM Files" dialog. Construct new image names by typing into the "Template" text box, using the key beneath the text box for reference. Each token represents a particular field of the DICOM header. The new names of the selected files will be displayed in the "Examples" window as they are entered. Names must be unique, or else the files will not be renamed. Renaming will also fail if illegal characters (e.g., backwards or forwards slashes) are used. To execute renaming, click "OK."
