A.8.2 Multi-frame Single Bit SC Image Information Object Definition

A.8.2.1 Multi-frame Single Bit SC Image IOD Description

The Multi-frame Single Bit Secondary Capture (SC) Image Information Object Definition (IOD) specifies images that are converted from a non-DICOM format to a modality independent DICOM format.

This IOD is typically used for scanned documents and bitmap images of hand drawings.

A.8.2.2 Multi-frame Single Bit SC Image IOD Entity-Relationship Model

The E-R Model in Section A.1.2 depicts those components of the DICOM Information Model that directly reference the Secondary Capture Image family of IODs. The Frame of Reference IE, Overlay IE, Modality LUT IE, VOI LUT IE and Curve IE are not components of this IOD.

A.8.2.4 Multi-frame Single Bit SC Image IOD Content Constraints

In the Image Pixel Module, the following constraints apply:

- Samples per Pixel (0028,0002) shall be 1

- Photometric Interpretation (0028,0004) shall be MONOCHROME2

- Bits Allocated (0028,0100) shall be 1

- Bits Stored (0028,0101) shall be 1

- High Bit (0028,0102) shall be 0

- Pixel Representation (0028,0103) shall be 0

- Planar Configuration (0028,0006) shall not be present

Note: As a consequence of these attribute values, single bit pixels are packed eight to a byte as defined by the encoding rules in PS 3.5.

The VOI LUT module shall not be present.

The Overlay module shall not be present.
