T.4.1 Service Class User

The DICOM AE that claims conformance to this SOP Class as an SCU shall be capable of sending a Hanging Protocol SOP Instance that meets the requirements of the Hanging Protocol IOD. It shall be invoked by the SCU through the use of the DIMSE C-STORE request used in conjunction with this SOP Class.

The SCU shall include a Data Set with the Attributes as defined in the Hanging Protocol IOD in PS 3.3.

The SCU shall recognize the status of the C-STORE service and take appropriate action based on the success or failure of the service. This SOP Class places no further requirements on what the SCU shall do other than that it shall distinguish between successful and failed C-STORE responses. This behavior shall be documented as part of the SOP Class Conformance Statement.
