Is it possible to set and display some of the DICOM tags from the subject hierarchy without actually having a dicom volume ? E.g., I organized this mockup MRB file. It contains everything I need in terms of imaging data (an NRRD file), segmentation and exported model, fiducials etc. I still need to describe the genus/species/strains/sex (and few other things as well) of this subject AMNH123456. If I choose to export one of the volume as a DICOM, I get to specify some of those. But I don’t want to do that, but retain my volumes as NRRD/NII for convenience and skip the unnecessary export step.
What I was looking/hoping for is some sort of functionality, where I right click on the subject, and then choose something like ‘create custom tag/metadata field’, and then start populating them as I need. Or even a way to specify/declare these custom tags only once, so that we don’t make typos entering them manually all the time (species vs speices kind of thing). Then, these tags gets stored in the mrml/mrb file. My goal is being able to access this information programmatically for batch processing, as well as making sure some metadata travels with the dataset.
I am not sure if this is currently possible. How difficult would it be to implement something this?
