A.32.8.1 VL Whole Slide Microscopy Image IOD Description

The VL Whole Slide Microscopy Image IOD specifies the Attributes of a multi-frame visible light whole slide microscopy image encoded as a tiled decomposition. Each frame encodes a single tile within a three-dimensional imaged volume at a uniform resolution.

Note

An entire set of tiles for an acquisition may be encoded in the frames of a single SOP Instance, in multiple SOP Instances of a single concatenation, or in multiple SOP Instances in a Series (with or without concatenations). E.g., a single SOP Instance may contain an entire low resolution image as a single tile (single frame), or a single SOP Instance may contain an entire high resolution, multi-focal depth, multi-spectral acquisition (multiple frames).
