One or more Items shall be included in this Sequence.

Note

In the context of the Key Object Selection, the current evidence is considered to be only the set of instances referenced within the Key Object Selection.

>Include Table C.17-3 “Hierarchical SOP Instance Reference Macro Attributes”

Identical Documents Sequence

(0040,A525)

1C

Duplicates of this document, stored with different SOP Instance UIDs.

C.17.6.2.1 Identical Documents

If the Current Requested Procedure Evidence Sequence (0040,A375) references SOP Instances both in the current Study and in one or more other Studies, this document shall be duplicated into each of those other Studies, and the duplicates shall be referenced in the Identical Documents Sequence (0040,A525).

Note

Thus a Key Object Selection Document that references images in the current Study as well as in a prior or comparison Study, would be duplicated into the other Study. This allows an application displaying that other Study to easily access notes relevant to that Study's SOP Instances.
