Import To/From XML

by Nakull Gupta for Grassroots DICOM

This project aims to implement a tool for converting data in DICOM to XML files and vice versa. To achieve the conversion to XML files we will have to make a DTD(Document Type Definition) or an XSD (XML Scheme Definition).After some deliberation I have decided upon using an XSD as it can capture the varied DICOM datatypes and provides a more effective solution than DTD's. The tool will also have a properly defined interface that will allow users to specify various options, set parameters, define output layout etc. This tool will thus add a new facet to GDCM's functionality and allow users to view DICOM data in XML files, as well as execute XQueries on them.
