Enhanced DICOM question


I have a weird request. We have one MRI scanner that only will upload data to PACs in “enhanced DICOM” format one file includes multiple images, and a different device that does not currently support this format (it wants individual DICOM image files).

I am looking for a way to convert enhanced DICOM to individual DICOM image files.

I can open the enhanced DICOM study in slicer and then export a DICOM series. This produces individual images, but all of the metadata is not included. Is there a way to export DICOM image files that retains the metadata?


According to this post split multiframe dicom file dicom3tools by David Clunie should be able to split the MR enhanced file correctly.
