      CP 850:

      "ftp://medical.nema.org/medical/dicom/final/cp850_ft.pdf"

      finally added rules for generating keywords for all data elements, and this was instantiated with defined keywords in the 2009 edition of PS 3.6.

      Accordingly, I have updated both dicom3tools and the pixelmed toolkit to use the new keywords in place of those used previously.

      This will affect both scripts that use the command line tools with keywords, as well as code that uses the keywords to look up tags in the dictionary.

      In the pixelmed toolkit, the database column names will also change in some cases.

      For details of the old and new keywords used, see:

      "http://www.dclunie.com/dicom3tools/keywords_old_versus_new.txt"

      There are also some minor changes to the descriptions used in the output of various tools (such as dcdump), and the changes are listed at:

      "http://www.dclunie.com/dicom3tools/names_old_versus_new.txt"

      Whilst this change may be initially disruptive, it seems the sensible thing to do going forward.
