pydicom.values.convert_DT_string(byte_string: bytes, is_little_endian: bool, struct_format: str | None = None) str | DT | MutableSequence[str] | MutableSequence[DT][source]

Return a decoded ‘DT’ value.

  • byte_string (bytes) – The encoded ‘DT’ element value.

  • is_little_endian (bool) – True if the value is encoded as little endian, False otherwise.

  • struct_format (str, optional) – Not used.


If datetime_conversion is True then returns DT or a list of DT, otherwise returns str or list of str.

str or MultiValue of str or valuerep.DT or MultiValue of DT
