C.7.5.2 Enhanced General Equipment Module

Table C.7-8b specifies the Attributes that identify and describe the piece of equipment that produced a Series of Composite Instances.

Note

  1. This table contains a subset of the Attributes of General Equipment Module (Table C.7-8) but the Type Designation is changed into Type 1. Including this Module in an IOD overwrites the Type Designation of the General Equipment Module.

  2. The Attributes are intended to be a primary identification of the system that produces the data (e.g., modality or workstation application providing the content of the SOP Instance) and not the identification of the component that encodes the SOP Instance (e.g., a commonly used DICOM encoding toolkit).
