*Octave (and Matlab) stores images (y,x) and DICOM is intrinsically (x,y). Does Matlab transpose images when it loads them?
**matlab reads the data from the dicom file as if it's a raw block of numbers (and then converts if necessary).
Therefore, current Octave/dicom behaviour is compatible with matlab.
*I would like people to try m-files that worked with Matlab to let me know of problems.
*(not necessarily) Matlab related: I need examples of odd DICOM files. I have plenty with complex metadata, but I need some with unusual images.
**silently convert the metadata to match the pixel type?
**error and do nothing?
*What does dicominfo do when a tag is not in its dictionary:
skip it or give error? I was wondering about turning the tag into a variable name, something like Tag_3243_0010. (Matlab 6.5 (2002): Private__3243_0010)*dicominfo: Items in sequences are not necessarily the same, so cannot be stored in arrays of structs. (Matlab 6.5 (2002): makes nested structs like dcm.RTDoseROISequence?.Item_1.DoseUnits?)
