Attribute Name Tag Attribute Description
General Purpose Scheduled Procedure Step Status (0040,4001) A status that informs the operator and the worklist management system about the progress of the scheduled General Purpose procedure step. Enumerated Values are: SCHEDULED, IN PROGRESS, SUSPENDED, COMPLETED, DISCONTINUED. See PS 3.4 for a detailed description of the meaning and usage of these values.

Scheduled Procedure Step Modification Date Time (0040,4010) Date and time when the General Purpose Scheduled Procedure Step was last modified or first created (whichever is most recent). Note: This attribute should be implicitly updated by the worklist management system whenever any modification is made to attributes of a General Purpose Scheduled Procedure Step. In particular, note that creation of General Purpose Performed Procedure Steps by a performing device can modify attributes of a related General Purpose Scheduled Procedure Step (e.g. the contents of Resulting General Purpose Performed Procedure Steps Sequence (0040,4015)).

Expected Completion Date Time (0040,4011) Date on which the Procedure Step is expected to be completed.
Scheduled Workitem Code Sequence (0040,4018) A sequence that conveys the code for the Workitem. Only a single Item shall be included in this sequence.
>Include Code Sequence Macro Table 8.8-1 Baseline CID 9231.
Comments on the Scheduled Procedure Step (0040,0400) User-defined comments on the Scheduled Procedure Step.
Referenced Performed Procedure Step Sequence (0008,1111) List of any Modality or General Purpose Performed Procedure Steps, that may be used to perform the procedure step. This sequence may contain references to performed procedure steps resulting from previous contributions to the performance of the procedure step (e.g. an image processing procedure step interrupted, and completed later). Zero or more Items shall be included in this sequence.
>Include SOP Instance Reference Macro Table 10-11
Input Availability Flag (0040,4020) Flag that indicates the availability of Composite SOP Instances in the Attribute “Input Information Sequence” (0040,4021) of the General Purpose Scheduled Procedure Step. Enumerated values are: PARTIAL COMPLETE The value PARTIAL denotes that the list of Composite SOP Instances may not yet be complete, and additional ones may be added at a later time. The value COMPLETE denotes that all Composite SOP Instances are available and listed. Note: It may happen that the list of Composite SOP Instances is empty when the value of the Input Availability Flag is COMPLETE. In such a case a Workitem has been scheduled that does not require input information.
Input Information Sequence (0040,4021) List of Composite SOP Instances that forms the input information needed to perform the scheduled procedure step. See also Input Availability Flag (0040,4020). The same Composite SOP Instance shall not be included in both the Input Information Sequence (0040,4021) and the Relevant Information Sequence (0040,4022). Zero or more Items shall be included in this sequence.
>Include '’Hierarchical SOP Instance Reference Macro' Table C.17-3
Relevant Information Sequence (0040,4022) List of Composite SOP Instances that refers to relevant information that is considered pertinent for the performance of the scheduled procedure step. The same Composite SOP Instance shall not be included in both the Input Information Sequence (0040,4021) and the Relevant Information Sequence (0040,4022). Zero or more Items shall be included in this sequence.
>Include '’Hierarchical SOP Instance Reference Macro' Table C.17-3
Study Instance UID (0020,000D) Unique Study identification that shall be used for the created Composite SOP Instances resulting from this General Purpose Scheduled Procedure Step. Note: In most cases this will be the same Study Instance UID as for the instances in the Input Information Sequence (0040,4021).
Study Date (0008,0020) Date the Study started, if any previous procedure steps within the same study have already been performed. Note: This value should be the same as that in the instances in the Input Information Sequence (0040,4021).
Study Time (0008,0030) Time the Study started, if any previous procedure steps within the same study have already been performed. Note: This value should be the same as that in the instances in the Input Information Sequence (0040,4021).
Multiple Copies Flag (0040,4006) This flag indicates that multiple copies have to be made of a Composite SOP Instance that supports the notion of multiple copies. This includes the SR SOP Class. If set the Study Instance UIDs in the Referenced Request Sequence (0040,A370) shall be used for the created multiple copies. Enumerated Values: Y = Yes N = No
Resulting General Purpose Performed Procedure Steps Sequence (0040,4015) List of all General Purpose Performed Procedure Steps that result from the performance of the procedure step. Zero or more Items shall be included in this sequence. Note: Initially this list will be empty. New entries will be added when General Purpose Performed Procedure Steps are created by performing devices that are related to this Scheduled Procedure Step. E.g, this sequence may contain the partial results in case a General Purpose Scheduled Procedure Step is discontinued.
