Table C.13-5. Image Box Pixel Presentation Module Attributes

Attribute Name

Tag

Attribute Description

Image Box Position

(2020,0010)

The position of the image on the film, based on Image Display Format (2010,0010). See Section C.13.5.1 for specification.

Polarity

(2020,0020)

Specifies whether minimum pixel values (after VOI LUT transformation) are to printed black or white.

Enumerated Values:

NORMAL

pixels shall be printed as specified by Photometric Interpretation (0028,0004)

REVERSE

pixels shall be printed with the opposite polarity as specified by Photometric Interpretation (0028,0004)

If Polarity (2020,0020) is not specified by the SCU, the SCP shall print with NORMAL polarity.

Magnification Type

(2010,0060)

Description is the same as in Table C.13-3. Overrides the Magnification Type specified for the Film Box.

Smoothing Type

(2010,0080)

Description is the same as in Table C.13-3. Overrides the Smoothing Type specified for the Film Box.

Configuration Information

(2010,0150)

See Table C.13-3 for description of Configuration Information.

Requested Image Size

(2020,0030)

Width (x-dimension) in mm of the image to be printed. This value overrides the size that corresponds with optimal filling of the Image Box.

Requested Decimate/Crop Behavior

(2020,0040)

Specifies whether image pixels are to be decimated or cropped if the image rows or columns is greater than the available printable pixels in an Image Box.

Decimation means that a magnification factor <1 is applied to the image. The method of decimation shall be that specified by Magnification Type (2010,0060) or the SCP default if not specified

Cropping means that some image rows and/or columns are deleted before printing

Enumerated Values:

DECIMATE

A magnification factor <1 to be applied to the image.

CROP

Some image rows and/or columns are to be deleted before printing. The specific algorithm for cropping shall be described in the SCP Conformance Statement.

FAIL

The SCP shall not crop or decimate

Basic Grayscale Image Sequence

(2020,0110)

A Sequence that provides the content of the grayscale image pixel data to be printed. This is a specialization of the Image Pixel Module defined in Section C.7.6.3. It is encoded as a Sequence of Attributes of the Image Pixel Module.

Zero or one Item shall be included in this Sequence.

Referenced Image Overlay Box Sequence (2020,0130) and Original Image Sequence (2130,00C0) were previously included in this Module but have been retired. See PS3.3-2004.

C.13.5.1 Image Box Position

The position of the image on the film; the encoding of the image position sequence is based on the selected Image Display Format (2010,0010). The image position sequence shall be increasing order beginning with the value 1. Image Box Position (2020,0010) is defined as follows:

  • STANDARD display format: image box sequence shall be major row order (from left-to-right and from top-to-bottom); top left image position shall be equal to 1.

  • ROW display format: image box sequence shall be major row order (from left-to-right and from top-to-bottom); top left image position shall be set to 1.

  • COL display format: image box sequence shall be major column order (from top-to-bottom and from left-to-right); top left image position shall be equal to 1.

  • SLIDE display format: image box sequence shall be major row order (from left-to-right and from top-to-bottom); top left image position shall be set to 1.

  • SUPERSLIDE display format: image box sequence shall be major row order (from left-to-right and from top-to-bottom); top left image position shall be set to 1.

  • CUSTOM STANDARD display format: image box sequence shall be defined in the Conformance Statement; top left image position shall be set to 1.
