|0004371||Slicer4||Module DICOM||public||2017-05-08 11:04||2018-05-29 23:27|
|Product Version||Slicer 4.8.1|
|Target Version||backlog||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004371: Improve DICOM loading error message|
When an unknown DICOM data item is attempted to be loaded, Slicer displays an error popup:
"Could not load: 1365768: Unnamed Series as a Scalar Volume"
Log (and warning column in advanced view) contains this message:
"Warning in DICOM plugin Scalar Volume when examining loadable 1365768: Unnamed Series: There is no pixel data attribute for the DICOM objects, but they might be readable as secondary capture images. Reference image in series does not contain geometry information. Please use caution."
This is caused by the fact that if none of the DICOM plugins recognize a series then the scalar volume plugin attempts to load it.
It could be better to not let the scalar volume plugin attempt to load the item and/or make the error message and logs more informative (for example, include metadata such as image modality, SOP class UID, etc).
|Tags||No tags attached.|
We need to have example deidentified datasets representing the types of files we expect to load correctly. Can the user or others help assemble a database for testing?
It would also help to list out the properties of files that we know should be trivially rejected.
The user should be alerted for anything in the gray zone, and given the option to try loading anyway.
We may also want to offer to run the DICOMPatcher for data that doesn't work in the normal path.
Retargeting stale issues to backlog.
