A.53 X-Ray 3D Angiographic Image Information Object Definition

A.53.1 X-Ray 3D Angiographic Image IOD Description

This Section defines the Information Object for multi-dimensional reconstructed cone beam X-Ray Angiographic Images and includes those data elements and information objects necessary for the interchange of Multi-dimensional X-Ray volumes.

Examples of X-Ray 3D Angiographic Images are: 3D reconstruction of static vascular structures (e.g., in Neuro-Radiology), ECG triggered cardiac volumes at different phases in the cardiac cycle, coronary artery tree reconstructions.

A.53.2 X-Ray 3D Angiographic Image IOD Entity-Relationship Model

The E-R Model in Section A.1.2 depicts those components of the DICOM Application Information Model that directly reference the X-Ray 3D Angiographic Image IOD.

A.53.3.1 X-Ray 3D Angiographic Image IOD Content Constraints

A. Modality Type Attribute

The Modality Type attribute (0008,0060) shall have the value XA.

A. Restrictions for Standard Extended SOP Classes

The Overlay Plane Module, VOI LUT Module and Softcopy Presentation LUT Module shall not be used in a Standard Extended SOP Class of the X-Ray 3D Angiographic Image.

Notes: 1. The VOI LUT function is provided by a Frame VOI LUT Functional Group.

2. The Curve Module was previously included in the Image IE for this IOD but has been retired. See PS 3.3 2004.
