RT Plan Geometry

(300A,000C)

1

Describes whether RT Plan is based on patient or treatment device geometry. See Section C.8.8.9.1.

Defined Terms:

PATIENT

RT Structure Set exists

TREATMENT_DEVICE

RT Structure Set does not exist

Referenced Structure Set Sequence

(300C,0060)

1C

The RT Structure Set on which the RT Plan is based.

Only a single Item shall be included in this Sequence.

Required if RT Plan Geometry (300A,000C) is PATIENT.

>Include Table 10-11 “SOP Instance Reference Macro Attributes”

Referenced Dose Sequence

(300C,0080)

3

Related instances of RT Dose (for grids and named/unnamed point doses).

One or more Items are permitted in this Sequence.

See Note 1.

>Include Table 10-11 “SOP Instance Reference Macro Attributes”

Referenced RT Plan Sequence

(300C,0002)

3

Related instances of RT Plan.

One or more Items are permitted in this Sequence.

>Include Table 10-11 “SOP Instance Reference Macro Attributes”

>RT Plan Relationship

(300A,0055)

1

Relationship of referenced plan with respect to current plan.

Defined Terms:

PRIOR

plan delivered prior to current treatment

ALTERNATIVE

alternative plan prepared for current treatment

PREDECESSOR

plan used in derivation of current plan

VERIFIED_PLAN

plan that is verified using the current plan. This value shall only be used if Plan Intent (300A,000A) is present and has a value of VERIFICATION

CONCURRENT

plan that forms part of a set of two or more RT Plan instances representing a single conceptual 'plan', applied in parallel in one treatment phase

Frame of Reference to Displayed Coordinate System Transformation Matrix

(0070,030B)

3

A 4x4 transformation matrix that transforms a coordinate of the Frame of Reference to a displayed coordinate system.

Only rigid transformation matrices are permitted (see definition in Section C.20.2.1.2).

Matrix elements shall be listed in row major order.


Note

An RT Dose IOD referenced within the Referenced Dose Sequence (300C,0080) can be used for storing grid-based (pixel) data, individual dose points (with optional dose point names), isodose curves, and DVHs.

C.8.8.9.1 Referenced Structure Set Sequence

An RT Plan Geometry (300A,000C) of PATIENT shall signify that an RT Structure Set has been defined upon which the plan geometry is based, and this RT Structure Set shall be specified in the Referenced Structure Set Sequence (300C,0060). An RT Plan Geometry (300A,000C) of TREATMENT_DEVICE shall indicate that no patient geometry is available, and that the RT Plan is being defined with respect to the IEC FIXED Coordinate System.
