The E-R Model in Section A.1.2 depicts those components of the DICOM Application Information Model that directly reference the X-Ray RF Image IOD, with exception of the Frame of Reference entity that is not used. Additionally, "Image" in figure A.1-1 may represent a Single Frame or a Multi-Frame image. A frame denotes a two-dimensional organization of pixels recorded as a single exposure.
Note: When a Study (or Study Component) contains a number of Multi-frame images that do not need to be grouped under different Series, a single Series may be used with a series number containing an arbitrary value (e.g. 1).
