Table C.7-12 specifies the Attributes that describe the contrast /bolus used in the acquisition of the Image.

Table C.7-12CONTRAST/BOLUS MODULE ATTRIBUTES

Attribute Name Tag Type Attribute Description
Contrast/Bolus Agent (0018,0010) 2 Contrast or bolus agent
Contrast/Bolus Agent Sequence (0018,0012) 3 Sequence that identifies the contrast agent. One or more Items are permitted in this sequence.
>Include ‘Code Sequence Macro’ Table 8.8-1 Baseline CID 12.
Contrast/Bolus Route (0018,1040) 3 Administration route of contrast agent
Contrast/Bolus Administration Route Sequence (0018,0014) 3 Sequence that identifies the route of administration of contrast agent. Only a single Item is permitted in this sequence.
>Include ‘Code Sequence Macro’ Table 8.8-1 Baseline CID 11.
>Additional Drug Sequence (0018,002A) 3 Sequence that identifies any additional drug that is administered with the contrast agent bolus. One or more Items are permitted in this sequence.
>>Include ‘Code Sequence Macro’ Table 8.8-1 No Baseline Context ID is defined.
Contrast/Bolus Volume (0018,1041) 3 Volume injected in milliliters of diluted contrast agent
Contrast/Bolus Start Time (0018,1042) 3 Time of start of injection
Contrast/Bolus Stop Time (0018,1043) 3 Time of end of contrast injection
Contrast/Bolus Total Dose (0018,1044) 3 Total amount in milliliters of the undiluted contrast agent
Contrast Flow Rate (0018,1046) 3 Rate(s) of injection(s) in milliliters/sec
Contrast Flow Duration (0018,1047) 3 Duration(s) of injection(s) in seconds. Each Contrast Flow Duration value shall correspond to a value of Contrast Flow Rate (0018,1046).
Contrast/Bolus Ingredient (0018,1048) 3 Active ingredient of agent. Defined Terms: IODINE GADOLINIUM CARBON DIOXIDE BARIUM
Contrast/Bolus Ingredient Concentration (0018,1049) 3 Milligrams of active ingredient per milliliter of (diluted) agent

Note: 1. Flow duration is an alternate method of specifying stop time

2. Flow rate allows for stepped injections by being capable of multiple values (1,N) instances.

3. For a 100 ml injection of 76% Diatrizoate and meglumine/sodium, diluted 1:1,

the Contrast/Bolus Agent would be “76% Diatrizoate” as text

the Contrast/Bolus Volume would be 100 ml,

the Contrast/Bolus Total Dose would be 50 ml,

the Contrast/Bolus Ingredient would be “IODINE”,

the Contrast/Bolus Ingredient Concentration would be 370mg/ml.
