None Incorrect Element Definitions in DICOM example

I discovered a couple errors in the DICOM example, in examples/extended/medical/DICOM/src/

G4Element* elK = new G4Element( name = "Potassium",
                                   symbol = "P",
                                   z = 19.0, a = 30.0983* g/mole );
G4Element* elP = new G4Element( name = "Phosphorus",
                                   symbol = "P",
                                   z = 30.0, a = 30.973976* g/mole );

The atomic mass for Potassium should be 39.0983* g/mole, and the atomic number for Phosphorus should be 15. I noticed something was off when comparing theoretical proton RSP's to simulated measurements for different materials.

Thanks, Ethan
