A.59.4.1 Enhanced US Volume Functional Group Macros Content Constraints

A.59.4.1.1 US Image Description Macro

The value of Volumetric Properties (0008,9206) shall be VOLUME. The value of Volume Based Calculation Technique (0008,9207) shall be NONE.

A.59.4.1.2 Plane Position (Volume) and Plane Orientation (Volume) Macros

Image Position (Volume) (0020,9301) first value (X) shall be zero and second value (Y) shall be zero. Image Orientation (Volume) (0020,9302) values shall be 1\0\0\0\1\0. This ensures that the origins of each frame lies on the Volume Frame of Reference Z V axis, the rows of each frame are parallel to the Volume Frame of Reference X V axis, and the columns of each frame are parallel to the Volume Frame of Reference Y V axis.
