C.8.11.9.1 Intra-oral Image Attribute Descriptions

C.8.11.9.1.1 Primary Anatomic Structure Sequence

The Code Value (0008,0100) shall be drawn from the DICOM Content Mapping Resource, Context ID 4018, for permanent dentition, or Context ID 4019 for deciduous dentition.

These Context Groups correspond to ISO 3950-1984 that describes a designation of permanent and deciduous dentition using a two digit code, the first digit of which designates a quadrant, and the second digit a tooth.

The teeth imaged shall be listed as multiple Items in the Primary Anatomic Structure Sequence (0008,2228).
