>False Negatives Quantity (0024,0050) 1C Total number of stimuli that were not seen by the patient but were previously seen at a lower luminance earlier in the visual field test (false negatives). Required if Catch Trials Data Flag (0024,0055) is YES.
>False Negatives Estimate Flag (0024,0045) 1 Whether the device was able to estimates false negatives. Enumerated Values: YES NO
>False Negatives Estimate (0024,0046) 1C Estimated percentage of all stimuli that were not seen by the patient but were previously seen at a lower luminance earlier in the visual field test (false negative responses), as percent. Required if False Negatives Estimate Flag (0024,0045) is YES.
>Excessive False Negatives Data Flag (0024,0051) 1 Whether the device was able to determine excessive false negatives. Enumerated Values: YES NO
>Excessive False Negatives (0024,0052) 1C The false negative estimate is outside of implementation-specific limits. Enumerated Values: YES NO Required if Excessive False Negatives Data Flag (0024,0051) is YES.
>Positive Catch Trials Quantity (0024,0056) 1C The total number of times the device behaved as if it was going to present a visual stimulus but did not actually present the stimulus (positive catch trials). Required if Catch Trials Data Flag (0024,0055) is YES.
>False Positives Quantity (0024,0060) 1C The total number of patient responses that occurred at a time when no visual stimulus was present (false positive responses). Required if Catch Trials Data Flag (0024,0055) is YES.
>False Positives Estimate Flag (0024,0053) 1 Whether the device was able to estimate false positives. Enumerated Values: YES NO
>False Positives Estimate (0024,0054) 1C Estimated percentage of all patient responses that occurred at a time when no visual stimulus was present (false positive responses), as percent. Required if False Positives Estimate Flag (0024,0053) is YES.
>Excessive False Positives Data Flag (0024,0061) 1 Whether the device was able to determine excessive false positives. Enumerated Values: YES NO
>Excessive False Positives (0024,0062) 1C The false positive estimate is outside of implementation-specific limit. Enumerated Values: YES NO Required if Excessive False Positives Data Flag (0024,0061) is YES.
Stimuli Retesting Quantity (0024,0042) 3 Total number of times in the course of a visual field exam that any location had to be retested at the same magnitude. Note: An example is that the patient received 20 stimuli and blinked twice, therefore need to present the stimuli two additional times in which case the value is 2.
Patient Reliability Indicator (0024,0069) 3 Vendor implementation specific text to provide an analysis and/or summary of patient reliability indicator/indices.
Comments on Patient’s Performance of Visual Field (0024,0044) 3 Operator's (test administrator) subjective comment on patient's performance.
