C.8.13.1.1.1 Image Type and Frame Type

The Image Type (0008,0008) and Frame Type (0008,9007) are not included in this Macro but one or the other is always included in the Module or Macro that invokes this Macro, and they are therefore described here.

In addition to the requirements specified in C.8.16.1 Image Type and Frame Type, the following additional requirements and Defined Terms are specified.

C.8.13.1.1.1.1 Pixel Data Characteristics

Value 1 of Image Type (0008,0008) and Frame Type (0008,9007) is discussed in C.8.16.1.1. No additional requirements or Defined Terms.

C.8.13.1.1.1.2 Patient Examination Characteristics

Value 2 of Image Type (0008,0008) and Frame Type (0008,9007) is discussed in C.8.16.1.2. No additional requirements or Defined Terms.

Table C.8-80 specifies the Defined Terms for MR additional to those defined in C.8.16.1.3 for Value 3 for Image Type (0008,0008) and Frame Type (0008,9007).
