10.12.1 Relation with other positioning attributes

The attributes of this macro may be used to correlate the patient based coordinate system (see C.7.6.2) and the equipment.

Note: The Patient Orientation Code Sequence (0054,0410) allows a more precise and comprehensive positioning than the Patient Position (0018,5100) attribute. If this sequence is present the Patient Position (0018,5100) attribute is not used.
