Removing Private Attributes
Private Elements (or Tags) are perfectly legal in DICOM, details of the structure of Private DICOM Elements can be found in DICOM_Private_Elements.
Removing all Private Elements from any DICOM objects is quite simple, following is sample VB 6 code to show you how to do it in DicomObjects.
Dim At As DicomAttribute Dim Index As Integer For Index = Image_1.Attributes.Count To 1 Step -1 Set At = Image_1.Attributes.ItemByIndex(Index) If At.Group Mod 2 > 0 Then ' if it's got odd group number, then remove it! Image_1.Attributes.Remove At.Group, At.Element End If Next
