STORAGE-SCU provides Standard Conformance to the following SOP Class(es):
Table G.4.2-7SOP Classes Supported by STORAGE-SCU
|SOP Class Name||SOP Class UID||SCU||SCP|
|Ultrasound Image Storage||1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.220.127.116.11||Yes||No|
|Ultrasound Multi-frame Image Storage||1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.18.104.22.168||Yes||No|
|MR Image Storage||1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.1.1.4||Yes||No|
|Digital Mammography X-Ray Image Storage – For Presentation||1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.22.214.171.124||Yes||No|
|Grayscale Softcopy Presentation State Storage||1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.126.96.36.199||Yes||No|
|Hanging Protocol Storage||1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.38.1||Yes||No|
STORAGE-SCU initiates but never accepts associations.
Table G.4.2-8Maximum PDU Size Received as a SCP for STORAGE-SCU
|Maximum PDU size received||Unlimited|
Table G.4.2-9Number of Associations as a SCP for STORAGE-SCU
|Maximum number of simultaneous associations||1|
STORAGE-SCU will only allow a single outstanding operation on an Association. Therefore, STORAGE-SCU will not perform asynchronous operations window negotiation.
Table G.4.2-10DICOM Implementation Class and Version for STORAGE-SCU
|Implementation Class UID||1.2.840.999999.3.6|
|Implementation Version Name||Viewer1.0|
STORAGE-SCU attempts to initiate a new association for each instance it attempts to transfer.
G.188.8.131.52.1.1 Description and Sequencing of Activities
For each Image, Presentation State, or Hanging Protocol Instance selected from the user interface to be transferred, a single attempt will be made to transmit it to the selected remote AE. If the send fails, for whatever reason, no retry will be performed, and an attempt will be made to send the next instance.
G.184.108.40.206.1.2 Proposed Presentation Contexts
Table G.4.2-11Proposed Presentation Contexts for STORAGE-SCU and Receive Storage Request
|Presentation Context Table|
|Abstract Syntax||Transfer Syntax||Role||Extended Negotiation|
|See Table G.4.2-7||See Table G.4.2-7||Implicit VR Little Endian||1.2.840.10008.1.2||SCU||None|
|Explicit VR Little Endian||1.2.840.10008.1.2.1||SCU||None|
STORAGE-SCU will propose Presentation Contexts only for the SOP Class of the instance that is to be transferred.
For that SOP Class, STORAGE-SCU will propose multiple Presentation Contexts, one for each of the supported Transfer Syntaxes, and an additional Presentation Context with all of the supported Transfer Syntaxes, in order to determine which Transfer Syntaxes the remote SCP supports, and which it prefers.
G.220.127.116.11.1.2.1 Extended Negotiation
No extended negotiation is performed.
G.18.104.22.168.1.3 SOP Specific Conformance
G.22.214.171.124.1.3.1 SOP Specific Conformance to Storage Service Class
STORAGE-SCU provides standard conformance to the Storage Service Class.
G.126.96.36.199.1.3.2 SOP Specific Conformance to Hanging Protocol Storage Service Class
STORAGE-SCU provides standard conformance to the Hanging Protocol Storage Service Class.
In Hanging Protocol Instances created on the Viewer, no Private Attributes are used as the value of Selector Attribute (0072,0026) in any of the Sequence Attributes to which it applies.
G.188.8.131.52.1.3.3 Presentation Context Acceptance Criterion
STORAGE-SCU does not accept associations.
G.184.108.40.206.1.3.4 Transfer Syntax Selection Policies
STORAGE-SCU prefers explicit Transfer Syntaxes. If offered a choice of Transfer Syntaxes in the accepted Presentation Contexts, it will apply the following priority to the choice of Presentation Context to use for the C-STORE operation:
first encountered explicit Transfer Syntax,
default Transfer Syntax.
G.220.127.116.11.1.3.4 Response Status
STORAGE-SCU will behave as described in the Table below in response to the status returned in the C-STORE response command message.
