Table C.8-123CT RECONSTRUCTION MACRO ATTRIBUTES

Attribute Name Tag Type Attribute Description
CT Reconstruction Sequence (0018,9314) 1 Contains the attributes holding information about the reconstruction techniques used. Only a single Item shall be included in this sequence.
>Reconstruction Algorithm (0018,9315) 1C Description of the algorithm used when reconstructing the image from the data acquired during the acquisition process. Defined Terms: FILTER_BACK_PROJ ITERATIVE Required if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is ORIGINAL. May be present otherwise.
>Convolution Kernel (0018,1210) 1C A label describing the convolution kernel or algorithm used to reconstruct the data. A single value shall be present. Required if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is ORIGINAL. May be present otherwise.
>Convolution Kernel Group (0018,9316) 1C A label describing the group that the Convolution Kernel (0018,1210) belongs. Defined Terms: BRAIN SOFT_TISSUE LUNG BONE CONSTANT_ANGLE Required if Convolution Kernel (0018,1210) is present. May be present otherwise.
>Reconstruction Diameter (0018,1100) 1C The diameter in mm of the region from which data were used in creating the reconstruction of the image. Data may exist outside this region and portions of the patient may exist outside this region. See C.8.15.3.6.1. Required if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is ORIGINAL and Reconstruction Field of View (0018,9317) is not present. Otherwise may be present if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is DERIVED and Reconstruction Field of View (0018,9317) is not present.
>Reconstruction Field of View (0018,9317) 1C The field of view width (x-dimension) followed by height (y-dimension) as used for reconstruction in mm. Required if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is ORIGINAL and Reconstruction Diameter (0018,1100) is not present. Otherwise may be present if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is DERIVED and Reconstruction Diameter (0018,1100) is not present.
>Reconstruction Pixel Spacing (0018,9322) 1C Physical distance in the patient between the center of each reconstructed pixel, specified by a numeric pair - adjacent row spacing (delimiter) adjacent column spacing in mm. See 10.7.1.3 for further explanation of the value order. Required if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is ORIGINAL. May be present otherwise.
>Reconstruction Angle (0018,9319) 1C Angle (in degrees) over which the data from which the frame was reconstructed was collected, where 360 degrees signifies a complete revolution of the source around the gantry orbit. It is possible, in the case of over-scanning that the Reconstruction Angle is greater than 360 degrees. Shall be 0 if Acquisition Type (0018,9302) is CONSTANT_ANGLE. Required if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is ORIGINAL. May be present otherwise.
>Image Filter (0018,9320) 1C A label describing the filter applied to the reconstructed image after the original reconstruction has been completed. Note: When Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is DERIVED and Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 4 is FILTERED the type of filtration is described in Derivation Image Macro. Required if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is ORIGINAL.
