XX.1.2 Response parameters

In the URI based WADO, the response is the single payload returned in the HTTP Get response. It may be the DICOM object in a DICOM format or in a rendered format.

In the Web Services implementation, for the “DICOM Requester” and the “Rendered Requester” transactions, one or more DICOM objects are returned using the MTOM/XOP mechanism as well as associated metadata.

For the “Metadata Requester” transaction, the response will contain the an XML encoded part containing the information selected from the retrieved objects header using the “XPath” filter as described in the Native DICOM Model defined in PS3.19.
