Note

  1. In the case of a scanned patient label, this may be the same as Patient ID (0010,0020), but it is included in the Scheduled Procedure Step Module rather than the Patient Identification Module since barcodes may also be used to identify lower level entities and/or different forms of patient identifier may be in use.

  2. In the case of a scanned slide label, this may be the same as Container Identifier (0040,0512).


C.4.10.1 Protocol Context Sequence

The Protocol Context Sequence (0040,0440) allows the specification of parameters that further qualify the scheduled protocol, provided through a set of generic name/value pairs of context Content Items.

Note

This allows the specification of clinical, acquisition, or procedural qualifiers for the scheduled protocol, such as a specific body part, imaging technique, or parameters of a preparatory event (e.g., radionuclide injection). Specific uses of this Sequence may be documented in a Template defined in accordance with PS3.16.
