7.5.2 DIMENSION ORGANIZATION

The Dimension Organization contains a set of dimensions. A dimension is a set of attributes which change on a per-frame basis in a manner which is known before the image is acquired, which are defined by the generating application and which are especially intended for presentation. Other attributes may also change on a per-frame basis but if they are not present in the Dimension Organization, they are not considered significant as a dimension for organizational purposes.

Receiving applications shall use the order of dimensions for guidance when presenting images if the Multi-frame Dimension Module is present. The first item of the Dimension Index Sequence shall be the slowest varying index.

Note: See Multi-frame Dimension Module section (C.7.6.17) for an example.
