    DICOM: Annotate DICOM images in WinForms
    In This Topic

    The annotations may be displayed over the DICOM image in WinForms image viewer.

    For each annotation is implemented a class, which defines the way the annotation appearance is displayed and how the user can interact with the annotation:


    The DicomAnnotationTool class allows to display and edit the annotations of DICOM image in WinForms image viewer.

    Here is an example that demonstrates how to display annotations of DICOM file in WinForms image viewer:
    ' The project, which uses this code, must have references to the following assemblies:
    ' - Vintasoft.Imaging.Annotation.Dicom.UI
    ' - Vintasoft.Imaging.Dicom
    
    ' create a DICOM visual tool
    Dim annotationTool As New Vintasoft.Imaging.Annotation.Dicom.UI.VisualTools.DicomAnnotationTool()
    ' set the DICOM visual tool as active visual tool in image viewer
    viewer.VisualTool = annotationTool
    
    ' load a presentation state file
    Dim presentationStateFile As New Vintasoft.Imaging.Codecs.ImageFiles.Dicom.DicomFile(presentationStateFilePath)
    ' add DICOM annotations from the presentation state file to the DICOM visual tool
    annotationTool.AnnotationDataController.AddAnnotationDataSet(presentationStateFile.Annotations)
    
    ' load a DICOM file in the image viewer
    viewer.Images.Add(dicomFilePath)
                  
    
    // The project, which uses this code, must have references to the following assemblies:
    // - Vintasoft.Imaging.Annotation.Dicom.UI
    // - Vintasoft.Imaging.Dicom
    
    // create a DICOM visual tool
    Vintasoft.Imaging.Annotation.Dicom.UI.VisualTools.DicomAnnotationTool annotationTool = 
        new Vintasoft.Imaging.Annotation.Dicom.UI.VisualTools.DicomAnnotationTool();
    // set the DICOM visual tool as active visual tool in image viewer
    viewer.VisualTool = annotationTool;
    
    // load a presentation state file
    Vintasoft.Imaging.Codecs.ImageFiles.Dicom.DicomFile presentationStateFile = 
        new Vintasoft.Imaging.Codecs.ImageFiles.Dicom.DicomFile(presentationStateFilePath);
    // add DICOM annotations from the presentation state file to the DICOM visual tool
    annotationTool.AnnotationDataController.AddAnnotationDataSet(presentationStateFile.Annotations);
    
    // load a DICOM file in the image viewer
    viewer.Images.Add(dicomFilePath);
