The supplement has been renamed from multi dimensional presentation state to Volumetric presentation state.
Further, to reduce complexity and speed up the release of the most important part and to gain feedback from implementors, the supplement has been broken down into three separate parts:
David Clunie gave an introductory talk about the result and current state of the transformation of the Dicom 2013 Word format into XML.
In the PDF version derived from the XML content the table of content is with hyperlinks and there are bookmarks. The text is "jumpable". If the user clicks somewhere then the user is taken to the definition.
Part 3 and Part 16 have been partly converted as proof of concept. Especially complicated was to get tables and images right.
The biggest tooling problem was to render the PDF well from Docbook and the templates used.
Equation rendering is still an open issue. The content is work in progress and should not be used for reference. Further work is necessary with cross linking and verifying the content and transformation from MS Word.
A current goal is to get to quarterly releases of the standard.
The most important work item for WG27 is to redocument part 18 of the DICOM standard as many newly released supplements kame changes necessary.
J. Philbin highlighted the draft Work Item: The revised Part 18 would have no semantics changes. It would be reorganized for clarity, simplicity, and brevity. Terminology would be unified and use the terminology in the Revised HTTP/1.1 standard.
The following initial decsions have been made:
This Supplement delivers explanatory information on the usage of DICOM attributes for X-Ray 3D Angiographic Image IOD.
The detailed purpose can be summarized as follows:
A white paper was presented which contains issues with the current usage of Frame of Reference and proposals how to improve the handling.
The presenter urged interested to read the text before the next meeting. The purpose is to improve the reliability of frame of reference.
A patient is put in a CT twice, the same frame of reference is used in both cases (which is wrong as the patient has a slightly new position during the second scan). The scenario above is a typical case when a first scan was not good enough. The frame of reference is reused. Then during radio therapy or surgery the wrong spatial information will be used.
The white paper describes typical problems and proposes some solutions. The consuming application can validate that the frame of reference is correct. Registration and timing can be used for validation.
A meeting was held for the Dicos Standard to learn from Dicom regarding how raw data is utilized in Dicom.
DICOS is the little sister standard from DICOM. It standardizes how luggage and persons are checked for threats with XRay in airports.
There are two types of scans done: person whole body and luggage. The goal is to validate that the systems at airports are finding threats.
There are different ways of doing this:
The author S. Balasubramanian asked for advice on specific ways to specify attributes, conditions and explaining text on selected paragraphs of the supplement.
Missing modules were added to the IOD definition in a new section, Substance Administration: Interventional module, Enhanced PET and Enhanced Contrast/Bolus to cover possible workflows and codes describing important properties of the workflows.
Further discussions took place on how to make query retrieve more effective.
The working group will revisit WG6 in April 2014.
The document was further scrutinized regarding consistency and definitions on control points, sub control points and meter sets. Many cleanups were made.
The supplement will be revisited in April 2014.
No further changes. The supplement is now a part of the standard.
A walkthrough of the open issues was the proposed form to work on this supplement during the meeting.
A longer discussion took place regarding how computer tablets should be handled within the example of Display System SOP.
A further discussion took place on test patterns, specifically how to document if a test pattern image has the right bit depths and resolution for the display. Minor updates throughout tables and with attributes were discussed and performed.
This supplement was voted as approved for Letter Ballot.
The complete name is "Radiopharmaceutical Radiation Dose Reporting"
This supplement was voted as approved for Final Text. It is now a part of the standard.
This supplement to the DICOM Standard introduces a simplified SR template for Adult Echocardiography measurements.
It provides similar content to that of TID 5200 while addressing details that were the source of interoperability issues; in particular, varying degrees and patterns of pre- and post-coordination, multiple codes for the same concept and numerous optional descriptive modifiers.
Input from European Association of Electrocardiography is requested.
This supplement is still in an early phase.
