G.8.1.1 Created SOP Instances

Table G.8.1-1 specifies the attributes of a Hanging Protocol Instance transmitted by the ImageViewer application.

The following tables use a number of abbreviations. The abbreviations used in the “Presence of …” column are:

VNAP Value Not Always Present (attribute sent zero length if no value is present)

ANAP Attribute Not Always Present

ALWAYS Always Present

EMPTY Attribute is sent without a value

The abbreviations used in the “Source” column:

USER the attribute value source is from User input

AUTO the attribute value is generated automatically

CONFIG the attribute value source is a configurable parameter

NOTE: All dates and times are encoded in the local configured calendar and time. Date, Time and Time zone are configured using the Service/Installation Tool.
