Sounds to me like you're trying to extract instances of Patient's Name 
from a DICOM file (to those of you who dont know, DICOM is a medical 
image format). Why don't you just use ruby-dicom? It will parse the 
DICOM file for you and give you alot of convenience methods to interact 
with the DICOM object.
