DICOM PS3.4 2019c - Service Class Specifications

5.2 Sequences

Certain tables in this Part of the DICOM Standard denote a Sequence of Items by using the symbol: '>.'

In Annex A, '>' is used to identify a 'Sequence of Modules.' Nested Sequences of Modules are identified by '>>'. In Annex B and Annex C, '>' is used to identify a 'Sequence of Attributes'. See PS3.5 for the complete specification of how Sequences of Items shall be encoded.

Note

Information Object Definitions (IODs) that include the Sequence of Module construct are often called folders. The use of 'Sequences of Attributes' is not limited to 'Folders.'
