10.1.2.2 N-GET service procedures

The following N-GET procedures apply;

a) The invoking DIMSE-service-user requests the performing DIMSE-service-user to retrieve Attribute Value(s) by issuing an N-GET request primitive to the DIMSE-service-provider.

b) The DIMSE-service-provider issues an N-GET indication primitive to the performing DIMSE-service-user.

c) If the operation can be performed, then the performing DIMSE-service-user retrieves the requested Attribute Value(s) and generates a response indicating acceptance of the N-GET request primitive by issuing an N-GET response primitive to the DIMSE-service-provider. In this case the following procedure does not apply.

d) If the operation cannot be performed, then the performing DIMSE-service-user rejects the N-GET request by issuing an N-GET response primitive with the appropriate error code to the DIMSE-service-provider.

e) The DIMSE-service-provider issues an N-GET confirmation primitive to the invoking DIMSE-service-user, completing the N-GET operation.
