Hi Benjamin and Mathieu,

thanks to both of you!

>From what I understand in this case the number of levels depends on the
number of files that i put in the DICOMDIR.
For example is I use the  following file DOGDIR3 that I have created in the
following way:

$ dcmmkdir --output-file DOGDIR3 --general-purpose-dvd DOG15_20

the DOGDIR3 will have only one level, and if I do this:

$ dcmmkdir --output-file DOGDIR3 --general-purpose-dvd DOG15_20 DOG15_40

the DOGDIR3 will have three levels.
