Attribute Description

Burned In Annotation

(0028,0301)

1

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

Enumerated Values:

YES

NO

Recognizable Visual Features

(0028,0302)

3

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

If this Attribute is absent, then the image may or may not contain recognizable visual features.

Presentation LUT Shape

(2050,0020)

1C

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

Enumerated Values:

IDENTITY

Output is in P-Values.

Required if Photometric Interpretation (0028,0004) is MONOCHROME2, and Bits Stored (0028,0101) is greater than 1.

Note

If the VOI LUT Module is required by the IOD but no VOI LUT Sequence (0028,3010) or Window Center (0028,1050) is present, then the VOI LUT stage is an identity transformation.

Illumination

(2010,015E)

3

Luminance of a hypothetical viewing device illuminating a piece of monochrome transmissive film, or for the case of reflective media, luminance obtainable from diffuse reflection of the illumination present. Expressed as L0, in candelas per square meter (cd/m2).

Note

May be used together with Reflected Ambient Light (2010,0160) to recover Optical Density information from P-Values. See Section C.8.6.3.1.

Reflected Ambient Light

(2010,0160)

3

For scanned monochrome transmissive film viewed on a hypothetical viewing device, the luminance contribution due to reflected ambient light. Expressed as La, in candelas per square meter (cd/m2).

Note

May be used together with Illumination (2010,015E) to recover Optical Density information from P-Values. See Section C.8.6.3.1.

Rescale Intercept

(0028,1052)

1C

The value b in the relationship between stored values (SV) in Pixel Data (7FE0,0010) and the output units specified in Rescale Type (0028,1054).

Output units = m*SV + b.

Required if Photometric Interpretation (0028,0004) is MONOCHROME2, and Bits Stored (0028,0101) is greater than 1.

Note

This specifies an identity Modality LUT transformation.

Rescale Slope

(0028,1053)

1C

m in the equation specified by Rescale Intercept (0028,1052).

Required if Photometric Interpretation (0028,0004) is MONOCHROME2, and Bits Stored (0028,0101) is greater than 1.

Note

This specifies an identity Modality LUT transformation.

Rescale Type

(0028,1054)

1C

Specifies the output units of Rescale Slope (0028,1053) and Rescale Intercept (0028,1052).

Defined Terms:

US

Unspecified

Required if Photometric Interpretation (0028,0004) is MONOCHROME2, and Bits Stored (0028,0101) is greater than 1.

Note

This specifies an identity Modality LUT transformation.

Frame Increment Pointer

(0028,0009)

1C

Contains the Data Element Tag of the Attribute that is used as the frame increment in Multi-frame pixel data. See Section C.7.6.6.1.2 for further explanation.

Shall be present if Number of Frames is greater than 1, overriding (specializing) the Type 1 requirement on this Attribute in the Multi-frame Module.

Nominal Scanned Pixel Spacing

(0018,2010)

1C

Physical distance on the media being digitized or scanned between the center of each pixel, specified by a numeric pair - adjacent row spacing (delimiter) adjacent column spacing in mm. See Section 10.7.1.3 for further explanation of the value order.

Required if Conversion Type (0008,0064) is DF (Digitized Film). May also be present if Conversion Type (0008,0064) is SD (Scanned Document) or SI (Scanned Image).

Shall be consistent with Pixel Aspect Ratio (0028,0034), if present.

Include Table 10-10 “Basic Pixel Spacing Calibration Macro Attributes”

Digitizing Device Transport Direction

(0018,2020)

3

Enumerated Values:

ROW

COLUMN

Rotation of Scanned Film

(0018,2030)

3

Angle of the edge of the film relative to the transport direction in degrees greater than or equal to -45 and less than or equal to +45.


C.8.6.3.1 Scanned Film, Optical Density and P-Values

Illumination (2010,015E) and Reflected Ambient Light (2010,0160) may be used to recover Optical Density information from P-Values.

Monochrome media that is being digitized is often measured in Optical Density values. These values need to be converted to P-Values for storage and display. The P-Values used in an image correspond to the perception of a human observer viewing the film on a hypothetical viewing device (such as a light box), using the specified values of Illumination (2010,015E) and Reflected Ambient Light (2010,0160).

The Grayscale Standard Display Function defined in PS3.14 is used to convert Luminance to P-Values. In the case of scanned film, the Luminance is derived from Optical Density using the specified values of Illumination (2010,015E) and Reflected Ambient Light (2010,0160). An example of this derivation, as well as typical "default" values for these parameters, is specified in PS3.14.
