When you encounter a computer problem, it is best to find a systematic solution in the form of a script or program. This lets you be prepared to handle the problem the next time you encounter it, because let's face it, history has a way of repeating itself.

All you want to know if when the DICOM got created and you don't have time to learn how to read DICOM files byte-wise. Just run this script.
