C.11.28 Volumetric Graphic Annotation Module

Table C.11.28-1 contains Attributes that specify graphic annotation placed in the Volumetric Presentation State Reference Coordinate System coordinate space.

Note

This Module specifies literal text and/or graphic annotation only. Provision is made to reference external Structured Report measurement instances to provide context for the annotation, if desired.

C.11.28.1 Annotation Clipping

A graphic defined by the Volumetric Annotation Sequence (0070,1901) may contain data that falls outside the view defined by the Volumetric Presentation State geometry.

If the Volumetric Presentation State intends that an annotation be clipped where it falls outside the defined view, Annotation Clipping (0070,1907) shall have a value of YES.

If the Volumetric Presentation State intends that an annotation be displayed in its entirely even where it does not intersect the volume of interest then Annotation Clipping (0070,1907) shall have a value of NO.

Any visual clues used to indicate where the annotation does and does not intersect the volume of interest are not specified by the Volumetric Presentation State.

Note

For example, the projection of a 3D curve onto a plane could be done such that the curve would be a rendered differently depending on if it is above, below or on the defined plane.
