E.3.3.2 Localizer Related Attributes

Directory Records of type IMAGE shall include the mandatory attributes from the Frame of Reference and Image Plane modules, if present in the composite image object, as specified in PS3.3 and included in Table E.3-2, in order to allow the image to be referenced to a localizer image or other orthogonal image. The Rows (0028,0010) and Columns (0028,0011) attributes are required in order to facilitate annotation of such a localizer.

Note: The Frame of Reference module is specified in PS 3.3 as mandatory for the CT and MR composite information objects, but not for Secondary Capture objects.
