My error
Undefined function 'dicominfo' for input arguments of type 'char'.

>> lookfor dicominfo
dicominfo - Read metadata from DICOM message.
>> help dicominfo
dicominfo Read metadata from DICOM message.
INFO = dicominfo(FILENAME) reads the metadata from the compliant
DICOM file specified in the string FILENAME.
INFO = dicominfo(FILENAME, 'dictionary', D) uses the data dictionary
file given in the string D to read the DICOM message. The file in D
must be on the MATLAB search path. The default value is dicom-dict.mat.
info = dicominfo('CT-MONO2-16-ankle.dcm');
See also dicomdict, dicomread, dicomwrite, dicomuid.
