Enumerated Values:

00

Image has NOT been subjected to lossy compression.

01

Image has been subjected to lossy compression.

Once this value has been set to 01 it shall not be reset.

Segmentation Type

(0062,0001)

Whether or not any segments in this Instance overlap. I.e., whether or not any pixel is or might be in more than one segment.

Enumerated Values:

YES

Some segments overlap

UNDEFINED

Some segments might overlap

NO

No segments overlap

See Section C.8.20.2.3.

Note

If the value is NO, then a receiving application to which this matters can be assured that no segments overlap and does not need to check every pixel. If the value is UNDEFINED or YES, or the Attribute is absent, then a receiving application might need to check every pixel in every segment.

Segment Sequence

(0062,0002)

1

Describes the segments that are contained within the data.

One or more Items shall be included in this Sequence.

Algorithm Name (0066,0036) within this Sequence may be identical to Segment Algorithm Name (0062,0009).

Only a single Item is permitted in this Sequence.

Note

Previously, the Segment Surface Generation Algorithm Identification Code Sequence (0066,002D) was used, but it has been replaced in this Module, since not all segmentation algorithms involve surface generation. See PS3.3 2016d.

>Recommended Display Grayscale Value

(0062,000C)

Note

The maximum P-Value for this Attribute may be different from the maximum P-Value from the output of the Presentation LUT, which may be less than 16 bits in depth.

>Recommended Display CIELab Value

(0062,000D)

A default triplet value in which it is recommended that segment be rendered on a color display. The units are specified in PCS-Values, and the value is encoded as CIELab. See Section C.10.7.1.1.


C.8.20.2.1 Bits Allocated and Bits Stored

As a consequence of the enumerated Bits Allocated and Bits Stored Attribute values, single bit pixels shall be packed 8 to a byte as defined by the encoding rules in PS3.5.
