Table C.4-15 specifies attributes that describe the acquisition of images during the performance of the Procedure Step and that provide references to the Series, Images and other Composite SOP Instances associated with this Modality Performed Procedure Step.

Table C.4-15

IMAGE ACQUISITION RESULTS MODULE ATTRIBUTES

Attribute Name Tag Attribute Description
Modality (0008,0060) Type of equipment that originally acquired the data used to create the images associated with this Modality Performed Procedure Step. See C.7.3.1.1.1 for Defined Terms. Note: A Modality value in the created SOP Instances may be different from the MPPS Modality value. For example, multiple series may have been created during the MPPS (images, waveforms, softcopy presentation states and/or structured reports) with SOP Instances in different series having different modality values.

Performed Protocol Code Sequence (0040,0260) Sequence describing the Protocol performed for this Procedure Step. Zero or more Items shall be included in this sequence .
>Include ‘Code Sequence Macro’ Table 8.8-1 No Baseline Context ID is defined.
>Protocol Context Sequence (0040,0440) Sequence that specifies the context for the Performed Protocol Code Sequence Item. One or more items shall be included in this sequence. See Section C.4.10.1.

>Performing Physician Identification Sequence (0008,1052) Identification of the physician(s) administering the Series. One or more items shall be included in this sequence. If more than one Item, the number and order shall correspond to the value of Performing Physician’s Name (0008,1050), if present.
>>Include ‘Person Identification Macro’ Table 10-1
>Operators’ Name (0008,1070) Name(s) of the operator(s) who supporting this Series.
>Operator Identification Sequence (0008,1072) Identification of the operator(s) supporting the Series. One or more items shall be included in this sequence. If more than one Item, the number and order shall correspond to the value of Operators’ Name (0008,1070), if present.
>>Include ‘Person Identification Macro’ Table 10-1
>Protocol Name (0018,1030) User-defined description of the conditions under which the Series was performed. Note: This attribute conveys series-specific protocol identification and may or may not be identical to the one presented in the Performed Protocol Code Sequence (0040,0260).
>Series Instance UID (0020,000E) Unique Identifier of the Series.
>Series Description (0008,103E) Description of the Series
>Series Description Code Sequence (0008,103F) A coded description of the Series. Only a single Item shall be permitted in this sequence.
>>Include ‘Code Sequence Macro’ Table 8.8-1 No Baseline Context ID is defined.
>Retrieve AE Title (0008,0054) Title of the DICOM Application Entity where the Images and other Composite SOP Instances in this Series may be retrieved on the network. Note: The duration for which this location remains valid is unspecified.
>Archive Requested (0040,A494) The instances in this series are expected to be archived in the long term archive. Defined Terms: NO, YES
>Referenced Image Sequence (0008,1140) A Sequence that provides reference to Composite SOP Instances created during the acquisition of the procedure step. Zero or more Items shall be included in this sequence. Note: The use of Referenced Image Sequence is historical, and in this context it allows the reference of any Composite SOP Instance.
>>Include ‘SOP Instance Reference Macro' Table 10-11
>>Container Identifier (0040,0512) The identifier for the container that contains the specimen(s) imaged.
>>Specimen Description Sequence (0040,0560) Sequence of identifiers and detailed description of the specimen(s) imaged. One or more Items shall be included in this Sequence.
>>>Specimen Identifier (0040,0551) A departmental information system identifier for the Specimen.
>>>Specimen UID (0040,0554) Unique identifier for the Specimen.
>Referenced Non-Image Composite SOP Instance Sequence (0040,0220) Uniquely identifies instances, other than images, of any SOP Class that conforms to the DICOM Composite IOD Information Model, such as Waveforms, Presentation States or Structured Reports, created during the acquisition of the procedure step, and that are not referenced in Referenced Image Sequence (0008,1140). Zero or more Items shall be included in this sequence.
