    DICOM: Annotate DICOM images in WPF
    In This Topic
    The annotations may be displayed over the DICOM image in WPF 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 WpfDicomAnnotationTool class allows to display and edit the annotations of DICOM image in WPF image viewer.

    Here is an example that demonstrates how to display annotations of DICOM file in WPF image viewer:
    // create a DICOM visual tool
    Vintasoft.Imaging.Annotation.Dicom.Wpf.UI.VisualTools.WpfDicomAnnotationTool annotationTool = 
        new Vintasoft.Imaging.Annotation.Dicom.Wpf.UI.VisualTools.WpfDicomAnnotationTool();
    // 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);
    
    ' create a DICOM visual tool
    Dim annotationTool As New Vintasoft.Imaging.Annotation.Dicom.Wpf.UI.VisualTools.WpfDicomAnnotationTool()
    ' 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)
