Table C.8-125CT X-RAY DETAILS SEQUENCE MACRO ATTRIBUTES

Attribute Name Tag Type Attribute Description
CT X-Ray Details Sequence (0018,9325) 1 Contains the attributes defining the x-ray information. Only a single Item shall be included in this sequence.
>KVP (0018,0060) 1C Peak kilo voltage output of the x-ray generator used. Required if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is ORIGINAL. May be present otherwise.
>Focal Spot(s) (0018,1190) 1C Used nominal size of the focal spot in mm. The attribute may only have one or two values, for devices with variable focal spot, small dimension followed by large dimension Required if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is ORIGINAL. May be present otherwise.
>Filter Type (0018,1160) 1C Type of filter(s) inserted into the X-Ray beam. Defined Terms: WEDGE BUTTERFLY MULTIPLE FLAT SHAPED NONE Note: Multiple type of filters can be expressed by a combination, e.g., BUTTERFLY+WEDGE. Required if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is ORIGINAL. May be present otherwise.
>Filter Material (0018,7050) 1C The X-Ray absorbing material used in the filter. May be multi-valued. Defined Terms: MOLYBDENUM ALUMINUM COPPER RHODIUM NIOBIUM EUROPIUM LEAD MIXED Note: MIXED may be used to indicate a filter type of complex composition for which listing the individual materials would be excessive or undesirable; it is not intended to mean “unknown”. Required if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 1 of this frame is ORIGINAL and the value of Filter Type (0018,1160) is other than NONE. May be present otherwise.
>Calcium Scoring Mass Factor Patient (0018,9351) 3 The calibration factor for the calcium mass score. These factors incorporate the effects of KV value of the CT image the patient size. machine specific corrections See C.8.2.1.1.7.
>Calcium Scoring Mass Factor Device (0018,9352) 3 The calibration factors for the calcium mass score of the device. These factors incorporate the effects of KV value of the CT image machine specific corrections This a multi-value attribute, the first value specifies the mass factor for a small patient size, the second value for a medium patient size and the third value for a large patient size. See C.8.2.1.1.7.
>Energy Weighting Factor (0018,9353) 1C The weighting factor of the data from the primary source in a multiple energy composition image. This factor incorporates the effects of the specific X-Ray source and kV value examination specific characteristics. Required if Required if Frame Type (0008,9007) Value 4 of this frame is ENERGY_PROP_WT. May be present otherwise.
