DICOM PS3.2 2019b - Conformance

A.4.4 Configuration

Any implementation's DICOM conformance may be dependent upon configuration, which takes place at the time of installation. Issues concerning configuration shall be addressed in this section.

A.4.4.1 AE Title/Presentation Address Mapping

An important installation issue is the translation from AE title to Presentation Address. How this is to be performed shall be described in this section.

Note

There does not necessarily have to be a one to one relationship between AE titles and Application Entities. If so, this should be made clear in the tables.

A.4.4.1.1 Local AE Titles.

The local AE title mapping and configuration shall be specified. The following table shall be used:

Table A.4.4-1. AE Title Configuration Table

Application Entity

Default AE Title

Default TCP/IP Port

AE (1)

Name

Specify

AE (2)

Name

Specify

AE (x)


If the implementation conforms to the Application Configuration Management Profile as an LDAP Client actor (see PS3.15), any use of LDAP to configure the local AE titles shall be described. Any conformance to the Update LDAP Server option shall be specified, together with the values for all component object attributes in the update sent to the LDAP Server.

A.4.4.1.2 Remote AE Title/Presentation Address Mapping

Configuration of remote host names and port numbers shall be specified here.

A.4.4.1.2.1 Remote SCP 1

Configuration of the remote AET port number, host-names, IP addresses and capabilities shall be specified. If applicable, multiple remote SCPs can be specified.

If the implementation conforms to the Application Configuration Management Profile as an LDAP Client actor (see PS3.15), any use of LDAP to configure the remote device addresses and capabilities shall be described. The LDAP queries used to obtain remote device component object attributes shall be specified.

Note

In particular, use of LDAP to obtain the AE Title, TCP port, and IP address for specific system actors (e.g., an Image Archive, or a Performed Procedure Step Manager) should be detailed, as well as how the LDAP information for remote devices is selected for operational use.

A.4.4.1.2.2 Remote SCP 2

Etc.
