Note

The use of the word "Images" rather than "Composite Object Instances" is historical to allow backward compatibility with previous editions of the Standard. It should not be taken to mean that Composite Object Instances of other than image type are not included at the level indicated by the value IMAGE.

C.6.2.1.2 Study Level

Table C.6-5 defines the keys at the Study Information level of the Study Root Query/Retrieve Information Model.

Note

  1. A description of the Attributes of this Information Model is contained in Section C.3.

  2. Although the Patient ID may not be globally unique, the Study Instance UID is globally unique ensuring that no two studies may be misidentified. The scope of uniqueness of the Patient ID may be specified using the Issuer of Patient ID (0010,0021).

  3. Previously, Other Patient IDs (0010,1000) was included in this table. This Attribute have been retired. See PS3.4 2017a.

C.6.2.1.3 Series Level

Attributes for the Series Level of the Study Root Query/Retrieve Information Model are the same as the Attributes for the Series Level of the Patient Root Query/Retrieve Information Model described in Section C.6.1.1.4.

C.6.2.1.4 Composite Object Instance Level

Attributes for the Composite Object Instance Level of the Study Root Query/Retrieve Information Model are the same as the Attributes for the Composite Object Instance Level of the Patient Root Query/Retrieve Information Model described in Section C.6.1.1.5.

C.6.2.1.5 Scope of the Get and Move Commands and Sub-Operations

A C-MOVE or C-GET request may be performed to any level of the Query/Retrieve Model. However, the transfer of Stored SOP Instances shall always take place at the Composite Object Instance level. A C-MOVE or C-GET where the Query/Retrieve level is the:

  • STUDY level indicates that all Composite Object Instances related to a Study shall be transferred

  • SERIES level indicates that all Composite Object Instances related to a Series shall be transferred

  • IMAGE level indicates that selected individual Composite Object Instances shall be transferred

Note

In the Baseline behavior, more than one entity may be retrieved if the Query/Retrieve Level is IMAGE, SERIES or STUDY, using List of UID matching,
