C.10.5.1.3 Compound Graphic Sequence

The attributes of the Compound Graphic Sequence (0070,0209) are described within this section.

For point encoding rules of Graphic Data (0070,0022) see C.10.5.1.2.

All graphics are applied after the application of the image rendering pipeline.

C.10.5.1.3.1 Compound Graphic Instance ID

Every Item in the Compound Graphic Sequence shall have a Compound Graphic Instance ID (0070,0226) with a value that is unique within this sequence.

There shall be one or more Items in the Graphic Object Sequence or Text Object Sequence that represents an alternate rendering of the Compound Object Sequence Item. As a linkage for backward compatibility these Items share the same Compound Graphic Instance ID (0070,0226).

Note: Every Compound Graphic has an equivalent rendering encoded as a set of simple graphic objects linked by the Compound Graphic Instance ID (0070,0226). Simple graphic objects are elements such as points, polylines, interpolated lines, circles and ellipses.The equivalent rendering is a set of simple graphic objects to support an SCP that only understands the simple graphical objects.

C.10.5.1.3.2 Rotation

All Compound Graphics can be rotated by specifying a Rotation Angle (0070,0230) value and a Rotation Point (0070,0273). The convention for rotation is that positive angle values are defined as counterclockwise around the Rotation Point (0070,0273).

C.10.5.1.3.3 Ellipses

For the Compound Graphic Type (0070,0294) ELLIPSE, exactly 2 points shall be present inside the Graphic Data (0070,0022). The first point is the top/left hand corner (TLHC) and the second point is the bottom/right hand corner (BRHC) of the bounding rectangle (see Figure C.10.5-2).

C.10.5.1.3.4 Rectangles

For the Compound Graphic Type (0070,0294) RECTANGLE, exactly 2 points shall be present inside the Graphic Data (0070,0022). The first point is the top/left hand corner of the rectangle (TLHC) and the second point is the bottom/right hand corner (BRHC) of the rectangle (see Figure C.10.5-2).

C.10.5.1.3.5 Multi-lines

For the Compound Graphic Type (0070,0294) MULTILINE, the list of points inside the Graphic Data (0070,0022) is an n-tuple list of start and end points of straight lines to be drawn (see Figure C.10.5-3).

If Rotation Angle (0070,0230) is present, all points in the MULTILINE are rotated around the same Rotation Point (0070,0273).

C.10.5.1.3.6 Cut and Infinite-lines

For the Compound Graphic Type (0070,0294) CUTLINE or INFINITELINE, exactly two points shall be present inside the Graphic Data (0070,0022). The rendering of these lines always extends to the borders of the render area of a view (see Figure C.10.5-4).

[pic]

Figure C.10.5-4 INFINITELINE

[pic]

Figure C.10.5-5 CUTLINE on the left and CUTLINE with gap on the right

In case of a CUTLINE, two arrows shall be drawn perpendicular to the cutline. The arrows ends shall be positioned at the midpoints of each half of the cutline. The arrow heads shall point toward the cutline and shall be drawn in the positive right half-plane of the cutline before rotation. Typically, the arrows indicate the viewing direction for MPR renderings that are referenced by these lines.

Gap Length (0070,0261) defines the diameter of the circular area where the CUTLINE or INFINITELINE is not rendered. Center of the circular area is the Rotation Point (0070,0273). Since the dimension units of the Gap Length is DISPLAY, independent of the value of Compound Graphic Units (0070,0282), the length of the gap is not changed by zoom operations on the image performed by the application.

C.10.5.1.3.7 Range lines

For the Compound Graphic Type (0070,0294) RANGELINE exactly two points shall be present inside the Graphic Data (0070,0022).

C.10.5.1.3.8 Ruler

For the Compound Graphic Type (0070,0294) RULER, exactly two points shall be present inside the Graphic Data (0070,0022) defining the ruler line.

Tick Alignment (0070,0274) defines the alignment of the ticks.

BOTTOM - ticks are aligned to the lower part of the line, where the first point of the line is on the left and the line extends horizontally to the right.

CENTER - ticks are centered on the line.

TOP - ticks are aligned to the upper part of the line, where the first point of the line is on the left and the line extends horizontally to the right.

BOTTOM - labels are aligned to the lower part of the line, where the first point of the line is on the left and the line extends horizontally to the right.

TOP - labels are aligned to the upper part of the line, where the first point of the line is on the left and the line extends horizontally to the right.

The presence, labeling and units of the ticks on the line is application dependent (see Figure C.10.5-7). If present as numerical values, the labels of the ticks shall increase toward the second point.

C.10.5.1.3.9 Axis

For the Compound Graphic Type (0070,0294) AXIS, exactly two points shall be present inside the Graphic Data (0070,0022) defining the axis’ line.

Figure C.10.5-7 RULER / AXIS example showing TOP Tick Alignment and TOP Tick Label Alignment

The Major Ticks Sequence (0070,0287) specifies the placement and label of the ticks. The rendering of the minor ticks is left to the application.

Tick Alignment (0070,0274) defines the alignment of the ticks.

BOTTOM - ticks are aligned to the lower part of the line, where the first point of the line is on the left and the line extends horizontally to the right.

CENTER - ticks are centered on the line.

TOP - ticks are aligned to the upper part of the line, where the first point of the line is on the left and the line extends horizontally to the right.

Tick Label Alignment (0070,0279) defines the alignment of the tick labels.

BOTTOM - labels are aligned to the lower part of the line, where the first point of the line is on the left and the line extends horizontally to the right.

TOP - labels are aligned to the upper part of the line, where the first point of the line is on the left and the line extends horizontally to the right.

C.10.5.1.3.10 Crosshairs

For the Compound Graphic Type (0070,0294) CROSSHAIR exactly one point shall be present inside the Graphic Data (0070,0022). This point is the origin of the CROSSHAIR (see Figure C.10.5-8).

Tick Alignment (0070,0274) and Tick Label Alignment (0070,0279) are also valid for the CROSSHAIR. Tick rendering is application dependent.

[pic]

Figure C.10.5-8 CROSSHAIR example showing BOTTOM tick labels alignment

Gap Length (0070,0261) defines the diameter of the circular area around the origin where the CROSSHAIR is not rendered. Since the dimension units of the Gap Length is DISPLAY, independent of the value of Compound Graphics Units (0070,0282), the length of the gap is not changed by zoom operations on the image performed by the application.

Diameter of Visibility (0070,0262) defines the diameter of the circular area around the origin where the CROSSHAIR is rendered. Since the dimension units of the Diameter of Visibility is DISPLAY, independent of the value of Compound Graphic Units (0070,0282), the size of the crosshair is not changed by zoom operations on the image performed by the application.

The value of the Tick Alignment (0070,0274) shall be CENTER.

C.10.5.1.3.11 Arrows

For the Compound Graphic Type (0070,0294) ARROW, two points shall be present inside the Graphic Data (0070,0022). The first point is the anchor point, the second point is the foot point of the arrow (see Figure C.10.5-9). The arrow head style at the anchor point is not specified.
