DONE

This media creation management instance has been successfully processed

FAILURE

This media creation management instance failed to be processed

Note

IDLE describes the status of a new media creation management instance (N-CREATE operation performed) for which the N-ACTION action has not been yet issued.

C.22.1.3 Execution Status Info

Defined Terms:

CHECK_MCD_OP

The media creation request could not be accomplished since the device is not ready at this time and needs to be checked by an operator (e.g., covers/doors opened or device jammed)

CHECK_MCD_SRV

The media creation request could not be accomplished since the device is not ready at this time and needs to be checked by a vendor service engineer (e.g., internal component failure)

DIR_PROC_ERR

The DICOMDIR building process failed for some unspecified reason (e.g., mandatory Attributes or values missing)

DUPL_REF_INST

Duplicated instances in the Referenced SOP Sequence (0008,1199)

INST_AP_CONFLICT

One or more of the elements in the Referenced SOP Sequence (0008,1199) are in conflict (e.g., the SOP Class specified is not consistent with the requested Application Profile)

INST_OVERSIZED

A single instance size exceeds the actual media capacity

INSUFFIC_MEMORY

There is not enough memory available to complete this request

MCD_BUSY

Media creation device is not available at this time, but should become ready without user intervention (e.g the media creation device's buffer capacity is full); the SCU should retry later

MCD_FAILURE

Media creation device fails to operate; this may depend on permanent or transient hardware failures (e.g robot arm broken, DVD writer failed) or because it has been disabled by an operator

NO_INSTANCE

One or more of the SOP Instances in the Referenced SOP Sequence (0008,1199) are not available

NOT_SUPPORTED

One or more of the Application Profiles, and/or SOP Classes, referenced in the Referenced SOP Sequence (0008,1199) are not supported by the SCP

OUT_OF_SUPPLIES

No more supplies (e.g., blank media, labeling ink) are available for the media creation device; operator intervention is required to replenish the supply

PROC_FAILURE

A general processing failure was encountered

QUEUED

This Media Creation Management instance is still in queue

SET_OVERSIZED

The file-set size exceeds the actual media capacity, and the device is not capable of splitting across multiple pieces of media

UNKNOWN

There is an unspecified problem

Note

  1. With respect to INST_OVERSIZED, DICOM media does not support spanning of instances across volumes.

  2. With respect to OUT_OF_SUPPLIES, This service is not supposed to provide detailed device status information, however sophisticated media creating devices can extend this table to return more information about the supply to be replenished. Implementation specific code values shall be defined in the Conformance Statement.

  3. For most of the above statuses, the SCU can obtain more details about the processing errors (e.g., what are the SOP instances not available) by using Failure Reason (0008,1197) within the Failed SOP Sequence (0008,1198).
