7.4.2 Augmented Application Profile

An Augmented Application Profile shall:

  1. be a proper super set of the Standard Application Profile. It adds the support of additional Standard or Standard Extended SOP Classes;

  2. use the same Physical Media and its associated Media Format specified in the corresponding Standard Application Profile;

  3. not include Specialized or Private SOP Classes.

An Augmented Application Profile may:

  1. include one or more Standard or Standard Extended SOP Classes in addition to those of the corresponding Standard Application Profile. These additional SOP Classes may be mandatory or optional;

  2. include the extensions (e.g. additional required keys, additional directory records) to the Basic Directory Information Object corresponding to the SOP Classes defined in a);

  3. add one or more new roles (FSC, FSR, FSU).

To claim conformance to an Augmented Application Profile, an implementation shall make a declaration of this fact in its Conformance Statement, and shall identify the Standard Application Profile from which it is derived and specify the augmentations. The implementation shall also identify its selected options, roles, and behavior.

An implementation of a Augmented Application Profile may:

  1. extend Standard SOP Classes of the corresponding Standard application profile. Such Standard Extended SOP Classes shall meet the requirements specified in Section 7.3;

  2. also claim conformance to the Standard Application Profile on which this Augmented Profile is based. In this case, FSC and FSU implementations shall be able to restrict their behavior to the Standard Application Profile (i.e., provide a means to write only the Standard or Standard Extended SOP Classes defined in the corresponding Standard Application Profile).
