Called AE title

This parameter identifies the Application Entity that shall contain the intended acceptor of the A-ASSOCIATE service. It is based on the Destination DICOM Application Name. The relationship between DICOM Application Name and AE titles is specified in Annex C. The Called AE title may or may not be the same as the Receiver 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 Called AE Title is its (or one of its) DICOM Application Name(s).
