C. Temporal Range Type

The Temporal Range Type attribute (0040,A130) defines the type of temporal extent of the annotated region of interest. A temporal point (or instant of time) may be defined by a waveform sample offset (for a single waveform multiplex group only), time offset, or absolute time.

The following terms are Enumerated Values for Temporal Range Type:

POINT = a single temporal pointMULTIPOINT = multiple temporal pointsSEGMENT = a range between two temporal pointsMULTISEGMENT = multiple segments, each denoted by two temporal pointsBEGIN = a range beginning at one temporal point, and extending beyond the end of the acquired dataEND = a range beginning before the start of the acquired data, and extending to (and including) the identified temporal point
