-Create a patient with a Patient Name attribute of " Smith" (note leading space).
-Use DcmQR to query for "Smith" (no results are returned).
PS 3.5 indicates that DICOM allows leading spaces in PN, but considers them insignificant. Therefore, I would expect a query for "Smith" to find " Smith".
Of note, queries for "*Smith" and " Smith" do find " Smith".
If this is not an issue in DCM4CHEE, then I believe the DCM4CHE2 toolkit should not trim PN attributes (see constructor for org.dcm4che2.data.PersonName).
This affects users of the DCM4CHE2 toolkit using the PersonName class. I have also seen the effect in the DCM4CHEE-web3 interface.
