(2050,0020)

1

Specifies an identity transformation for the Presentation LUT such that the output of all grayscale transformations are defined to be in P-Values.

Enumerated Values:

IDENTITY

output is in P-Values.

Note

The intent of specifying this Attribute for Parametric Maps is only to achieve consistency of rendering when displayed as grayscale, not to imply that grayscale contrast of the displayed image is meaningful. It is not applicable when the image is rendered with pseudo-color, for example.

Lossy Image Compression

(0028,2110)

1

Specifies whether an Image has undergone lossy compression (at a point in its lifetime), or is derived from lossy compressed images.

Required if present in the source images or this SOP Instance has been compressed.

Lossy Image Compression Method

(0028,2114)

1C

A label for the lossy compression method(s) that have been applied to this image.

See Section C.7.6.1.1.5.1.

Required if present in the source images or this SOP Instance has been compressed. See Section C.8.32.2.1.

Burned In Annotation

(0028,0301)

Indicates whether or not image contains sufficient burned in annotation to identify the patient and date the image was acquired.

Enumerated Values:

NO

Recognizable Visual Features

(0028,0302)

1

Indicates whether or not the image contains sufficiently recognizable visual features to allow the image or a reconstruction from a set of images to identify the patient.

Enumerated Values:

YES

NO

Content Qualification

(0018,9004)

1

Content Qualification Indicator

PRODUCT

RESEARCH

SERVICE

ICC Profile

(0028,2000)

1C

An ICC Profile encoding the transformation of device-dependent color stored pixel values into PCS-Values.

When present, defines the color space of the output of the Parametric Map

See Section C.11.15.1.1.

Required if Pixel Presentation (0008,9205) has a value of COLOR_RANGE.

Color Space

(0028,2002)

3

A label that identifies the well-known color space of the image. Shall be consistent with any ICC Profile (0028,2000) that is also present.

See Section C.11.15.1.2.


C.8.32.2.1 Lossy Image Compression and Lossy Image Compression Method

If Lossy Image Compression (0028,2110) in any of the source images is "01", the value shall be "01" for the Parametric Map Instance.

The process of derivation of a Parametric Map itself is defined not to be lossy compression, even though it involves loss. If the Parametric Map Instance is encoded using a lossy compression Transfer Syntax, then the value shall be set to "01".

Note

To state the obvious, it is not advisable to lossy compress a Parametric Map SOP Instance, since that will alter the quantitative values that are the intent of the object.
