10.3.2.3 N-GET protocol procedures

The N-GET procedures are initiated by the invoking DIMSE-service-user issuing an N-GET request primitive. On receipt of the N-GET request primitive the DIMSE-N protocol machine shall:

⎯ construct a Message conveying the N-GET-RQ

⎯ send the Message using the P-DATA request service (See 8.1)

On receipt of a Message conveying an N-GET-RQ the DIMSE-N protocol machine shall issue an N-GET indication primitive to the performing DIMSE-service-user.

On receipt of the N-GET response primitive, issued by the performing DIMSE-service-user, the DIMSE-N protocol machine shall:

⎯ construct a Message conveying the N-GET-RSP

⎯ send the Message using the P-DATA request service (See 8.1)

On receipt of a Message conveying an N-GET-RSP the DIMSE-N protocol machine shall issue an N-GET confirmation primitive to the invoking DIMSE-service-user, thus completing the N-GET procedure.
