imp = IJ.openImage("http://wsr.imagej.net/images/ct.dcm.zip"); 
studyDescription = DicomTools.getTag(imp, "0008,1030"); 
imagePosition = DicomTools.getTag(imp, "0020,0032"); 
pixelSpacing = DicomTools.getTag(imp, "0028,0030"); 
print("Study Description: "+ studyDescription); 
print("Image Position: "+imagePosition); 
print("Pixel Spacing: "+ pixelSpacing); 

How to work with DICOM headers from a macro?
