Table C.8-69DX ANATOMY IMAGED MODULE ATTRIBUTES

Attribute Name Tag Type Attribute Description
Image Laterality (0020,0062) 1 Laterality of (possibly paired) body part (as described in Anatomic Region Sequence (0008,2218)) examined. Enumerated Values: R = right L = left U = unpaired B = both left and right Note: This Attribute is mandatory, in order to ensure that images may be positioned correctly relative to one another for display. Shall be consistent with any laterality information contained in Primary Anatomic Structure Modifier Sequence (0008,2230), if present. Note: Laterality (0020,0060) is a Series level Attribute and must be the same for all Images in the Series, hence it must be absent.

This is the anatomic region that is placed on the table or bucky for examination. Note: It is strongly recommended that Anatomic Region Sequence (0008,2218) be sent with a value, in order to ensure that images may be positioned correctly relative to one another for display.

C.8.11.2.1 DX Anatomy Imaged Attribute Descriptions

The Attributes in this Module extend the function of Body Part Examined (0018,0015) as used in other IODs, and are intended to be used to facilitate the management of images and series in terms of routing, storage and display, as well as to dictate certain Conditions on Attributes and Modules in the DX IOD.
