DICOM Repair

DICOM is a very complex standard for storing and exchanging medical data. It allows to store data in many different ways.
During the last 25 years an innumerable number of DICOM data generating entities produced
DICOM data according to different evolutions of the standard. Some of them unfortunately
generated data containing errors and may cause problems when processed or used with tools of
other vendors. In other cases data can be damaged during data transfer or when its storage media is damaged.
Also logical errors in software can cause data damage.
