IMAGE SOP INSTANCE REFERENCE MACRO ATTRIBUTES

Attribute Name Tag Type Attribute Description
Include ‘SOP Instance Reference Macro' Table 10-11
Referenced Frame Number (0008,1160) 1C Identifies the frame numbers within the Referenced SOP Instance to which the reference applies. The first frame shall be denoted as frame number 1. Note: This Attribute may be multi-valued. Required if the Referenced SOP Instance is a multi-frame image and the reference does not apply to all frames, and Referenced Segment Number (0062,000B) is not present.
Referenced Segment Number (0062,000B) 1C Identifies the Segment Number to which the reference applies. Required if the Referenced SOP Instance is a Segmentation or Surface Segmentation and the reference does not apply to all segments and Referenced Frame Number (0008,1160) is not present.

The Referenced Instances and Access Macro (Table 10-3b) contains identifiers and access details for a collection of instances. It is intended to provide sufficient information to retrieve the referenced instances.
