How can I read DICOM files that are on the path?
For example, I have a DICOM image which I know is on the path because it comes up when I search dir ('b*.dcm'). It is under the following directory:
C:\Users\Ahuva\OneDrive\Documents\MATLAB\Examples\R2019a\matlab\ReadACollectionOrSequenceOfSpreadsheetFilesExample\dicom_images\matlab\examples\sample_data\DICOM\digest_article\brain_001.dcm
However when I use
dicomread ('C:\Users\Ahuva\OneDrive\Documents\MATLAB\Examples\R2019a\matlab\ReadACollectionOrSequenceOfSpreadsheetFilesExample\dicom_images\matlab\examples\sample_data\DICOM\digest_article\brain_001.dcm')
I get the error message
Unable to resolve the name images.internal.dicom.getFileDetails.

Hi,
Can you try using dicominfo first and then read using the extracted info?
info = dicominfo(fullpath);
I = dicomread(info);
This would probably work.
