AA.3.4 Dose Reporting Workflow Management

The dose reporting workflow may be managed using the same DICOM services used for managing the imaging workflow. These services include Modality Worklist (MWL) and Performed Procedure Step (MPPS), and General Purpose Worklist (GP-WL), Scheduled Procedure Step (GP-SPS), and Performed Procedure Step (GP-PPS) services.

In particular, a Dose Report produced for an Acquisition Modality Performed Procedure Step can be identified in the MPPS Referenced Non-Image Composite SOP Instance Sequence (0040,0220). Dose Report post-processing tasks may be scheduled and monitored using the GP-WL, GP-SPS, and GP-PPS services.
