Functions

generate_multiplex(ds[, as_raw])

Yield an ndarray for each multiplex group in the Waveform Sequence.

is_available()

Return True if the handler has its dependencies met.

multiplex_array(ds, index[, as_raw])

Return an ndarray for the multiplex group in the Waveform Sequence at index.

pydicom.waveforms.numpy_handler.generate_multiplex(ds: Dataset, as_raw: bool = True) Generator[np.ndarray, None, None][source]

Yield an ndarray for each multiplex group in the Waveform Sequence.

New in version 2.1.

Parameters
  • ds (pydicom.dataset.Dataset) – The Dataset containing a Waveform module and the Waveform Sequence to be converted.

  • as_raw (bool, optional) – If True (default), then yield the raw unitless waveform data. If False then attempt to convert the raw data for each channel to the quantity specified by the corresponding (003A,0210) Channel Sensitivity unit.

Yields

np.ndarray – The waveform data for a multiplex group as an ndarray with shape (samples, channels).

pydicom.waveforms.numpy_handler.is_available() bool[source]

Return True if the handler has its dependencies met.

New in version 2.1.

pydicom.waveforms.numpy_handler.multiplex_array(ds: Dataset, index: int, as_raw: bool = True) np.ndarray[source]

Return an ndarray for the multiplex group in the Waveform Sequence at index.

New in version 2.1.

Parameters
  • ds (pydicom.dataset.Dataset) – The Dataset containing a Waveform module and the Waveform Sequence to be converted.

  • index (int) – The index of the multiplex group to return.

  • as_raw (bool, optional) – If True (default), then return the raw unitless waveform data. If False then attempt to convert the raw data for each channel to the quantity specified by the corresponding (003A,0210) Channel Sensitivity unit.

Returns

The waveform data for a multiplex group as an ndarray with shape (samples, channels).

Return type

np.ndarray
