Q. Relevant Patient Information Attributes

Table Q.4-1 defines the Attributes of the Relevant Patient Information Model:

Table Q.4-1 Attributes for the Relevant Patient Information Model

Description / Module Tag Match-ing Key Type Return Key Type Remark / Matching Type
Patient’s Name (0010,0010) - 1
Patient ID (0010,0020) R 1 Shall be present in the Request Identifier. Shall be retrieved with Single Value Matching. Note: Since only one response is expected, this is a unique key.
Issuer of Patient ID (0010,0021) R 2 Shall be retrieved with Single Value Matching. In situations where there are multiple issuers, this key constrains matching of Patient ID (0010,0020) to a domain in which the Patient ID (0010,0020) is unique.
Patient’s Birth Date (0010,0030) - 2
Patient’s Sex (0010,0040) - 2
All other Attributes of the Patient Identification module - 3
All other Attributes of the Patient Demographic module - 3

>Coding Scheme Version (0008,0103) - 1C Required if the value of Coding Scheme Designator (0008,0102) is not sufficient to identify the Code Value (0008,0100) unambiguously.
>Code Meaning (0008,0104) - 1
>All other Attributes of the Concept Name Code Sequence

>Referenced SOP Class UID (0008,1150) - 1
>Referenced SOP Instance UID (0008,1155) - 1
>HL7 Instance Identifier (0040,E001) - 1
>Retrieve URI (0040,E010) - 3
Structured Information (Common Instance Reference Module)
Studies Containing Other Referenced Instances Sequence (0008,1200) - 1C Required if Content Sequence (0040,A390) includes Content Items that reference SOP Instances that use the Patient/Study/Series/Instance information model.
>Referenced Series Sequence (0008,1115) - 1
>>Series Instance UID (0020,000E) - 1
>>Referenced Instance Sequence (0008,114A) - 1
>>>Referenced SOP Class UID (0008,1150) - 1
>>>Referenced SOP Instance UID (0008,1155) - 1

The attributes in Table Q.4-2 are not part of the Information Model; their inclusion in the C-FIND request and response identifier are governed by rules in sections Q. and Q., respectively.
