E.3.4 Other Parameters

This section defines other parameters in the STD-CTMR profiles which need to be specified in order to ensure interoperable information interchange.

Table E.3-2STD-CTMR Additional DICOMDIR Keys

Key Attribute Tag Record Type Type Notes
Referenced Image Sequence (0008,1140) IMAGE 1C Required if present in image object.
>Referenced SOP Class UID (0008,1150) IMAGE 1C Required if Referenced Image Sequence (0008,1140) is present.
>Referenced SOP Instance UID (0008,1155) IMAGE 1C Required if Referenced Image Sequence (0008,1140) is present.
Image Position (Patient) (0020,0032) IMAGE 1C Required if present in image object.
Image Orientation (Patient) (0020,0037) IMAGE 1C Required if present in image object.
Frame of Reference UID (0020,0052) IMAGE 1C Required if present in image object.
Rows (0028,0010) IMAGE 1
Columns (0028,0011) IMAGE 1
Pixel Spacing (0028,0030) IMAGE 1C Required if present in image object.

Notes: 1. The Basic Directory Information Object definition in PS 3.3 defines the following attributes as Type 1 or 2: for PATIENT directory records: (0010,0010) Patient’s Name; for STUDY directory records: (0008,0050) Accession Number, (0008,0020) Study Date, (0008,1030) Study Description; for SERIES directory records: (0008,0060) Modality. Hence these are not redefined here.

2. The Basic Directory Information Object definition in PS 3.3 allows for the optional inclusion of Icon Images at the IMAGE or SERIES level. These remain optional for this profile, and the choice of whether or not to include Icon Images for every image or series, or in a more selective manner, is left up to the implementor. E.3.3.3 describes restrictions that apply to Icon Images that are included in this profile.

E.3.4.1 Image Attribute Values

The attributes listed in Table E.3-3 used within CT Image files, those listed in Table E.3-4 used within MR Image files, those listed in Table E.3-5 used within grayscale SC Image files, and those listed in Table E.3-6 used within color SC Image files, shall take the values specified, which are more specific than, but must be consistent with, those specified in the definition of the CT, MR and SC Image Information Object Definitions in PS 3.3.

Table E.3-3 STD-CTMRRequired Image Attribute Values for CT Images

Attribute Tag Value
Modality (0008,0060) CT
Photometric Interpretation (0028,0004) MONOCHROME2

Table E.3-4 STD-CTMRRequired Image Attribute Values for MR Images
