/* 
 * Simple example to show how to use Scanner API.
 * It exposes the three different cases:
 *  - DICOM Attribute is present and has a value
 *  - DICOM Attribute is present and has no value
 *  - DICOM Attribute is not present at all
 * It also shows the purpose of the function 'IsKey' to detect whether or
 * not the file has been read by the gdcm::Scanner. Technically most of the time
 * if a file is not a 'Key' this is because it is not a DICOM file. You need to use
 * gdcm::System::FileExists to decide whether or not the file actually exist on the disk.
 *
 * It was tested on this particular image:
 * ./SimpleScanner gdcmData/012345.002.050.dcm
