6.2 Overview of Media Storage Section for Conformance Statements

The media storage section of a Conformance Statement consists of the following major parts:

— a functional overview containing the Application Data Flow Diagram which shows all the Application Entities, including any sequencing constraints among them. It also shows how they relate to both local and remote Real-World Activities;

— a more detailed specification of each Application Entity listing the Media Storage Application Profiles supported (this defines SOP Classes supported and media selected), which outlines the policies with which it creates, reads, or updates File-sets on the media;

— a list of optional SOP Classes supported;

— for each Media Storage SOP Class related to a media storage Application Profile, a list of any SOP options supported;

— for each Media Storage SOP Class related to a media storage Application Profile, a list of optional Transfer Syntaxes supported;

— a description of any extensions, specializations, and publicly disclosed privatizations in this implementation such as Augmented or Private Application Profiles;

— a section describing DICOM related configuration details;

a description of any implementation details which may be related to DICOM conformance or interoperability;

a description of what codes and controlled terminology mechanisms are used.
