This command can be used to locate DICOM files. It shares many features with the UNIX
"find" command. When searching for files with a specific attribute (with "-k"), the tag
can be specified in the form GGGG,EEEE or with its canonical name e.g. Modality=MR from
the DICOM dictionary. Alternately, the tags can be listed in a query file given with the
"-q" option (one tag per line). Attributes nested within sequences can be specified by
giving a tag path e.g. "-k Tag1/Tag2/Tag3". Either a forward slash or a backslash can be
used to separate the components of the path. Private tags should be preceded by the
private dictionary name in square brackets.

The "-exec" and "-execdir" arguments cause dicomfind to run the specified program on the
found files. For example, to dump each file one would use "-exec dicomdump {} \;" where
each instance of {} will be replaced by a found file, and ";" indicates the end of the
args to dicomdump. Alternately, if "+" is used to end the args, then the program will be
run on each DICOM series and {} will be replaced by all files in the series. The
"-execdir" argument is similar, except that it runs the program from within the directory
of the file (or files), and {} is replaced by just the filenames instead of with the full
