This Section defines the SCU and SCP behavior for the Non-Patient Object Storage Service. The C-STORE DIMSE-C Service shall be the mechanism used to transfer SOP Instances between peer DICOM AEs as described in PS3.7.

In addition to the behaviors specified in this section, there may be SOP Class specific behavior requirements, as described in Section GG.6.

GG.4.1 Service Class User

A DICOM AE that claims conformance to any of the Non-Patient Object Storage SOP Classes as an SCU shall be capable of sending a SOP Instance that meets the requirements of the related IOD. The Service shall be invoked by the SCU through the use of the DIMSE C-STORE request used in conjunction with the SOP Class.

The SCU shall recognize the status of the C-STORE service and take appropriate action based on the success or failure of the service. The Non-Patient Object Storage Service places no further requirements on what the SCU shall do other than that it shall distinguish between successful and failed C-STORE responses. This behavior shall be documented as part of the Conformance Statement.
