7.1.1.3 Calling AE title

This parameter identifies the Application Entity (AE) that shall contain the requestor of the A-ASSOCIATE service. It is based on the Source DICOM Application Name. The relationship between DICOM Application Names and AE titles is specified in Annex C. The Calling AE title may or may not be the same as the Initiator Address present in DICOM Messages exchanged over the association.

Note: It is the responsibility of the UL User that received the A-ASSOCIATE-RQ to verify whether the Calling AE Title is one of its known remote DICOM Application Names.
