pydicom.config.debug(debug_on: bool = True, default_handler: bool = True) None[source]

When debugging is on, file location and details about the elements read at that location are logged to the ‘pydicom’ logger using Python’s logging module.

  • debug_on (bool, optional) – If True (default) then turn on debugging, False to turn off.

  • default_handler (bool, optional) – If True (default) then use logging.StreamHandler as the handler for log messages.
