DICOM PS3.4 2019b - Service Class Specifications

O.4 Conformance

In addition to the Conformance Statement requirements for the Storage Service Class specified in Section B.4.3, the following additional requirements are specified for Structured Reporting Storage SOP Classes:

O.4.1 Conformance Statement for an SCU

The following shall be documented in the Conformance Statement of any implementation claiming conformance to the Structured Reporting Storage SOP Classes as an SCU:

  • The Image or other composite object Storage SOP Classes that are also supported by the SCU and may be referenced by instances of Structured Reporting Storage SOP Class.

  • The range of Value Types and Relationship Types that are supported by the SCU.

  • The conditions under which a new SOP Instance UID is generated for an existing SR Document.

  • If the implementation provides Query/Retrieve of Structured Reporting SOP Instances as an SCU, whether it supports the Optional Keys Concept Name Code Sequence or Content Template Sequence.

Note

The description of the Value Types and Relationship Types that are supported by the SCU is particularly important for the Extensible SR SOP Class.

O.4.1.1 CAD SR SOP Classes

The following shall be documented in the Conformance Statement of any implementation claiming conformance to the Mammography CAD SR SOP Class as an SCU:

  • Which types of detections and/or analyses the device is capable of performing:

    • From detections listed in Context Group 6014 Mammography Single Image Finding

    • From analyses listed in Context Group 6043 Types of Mammography CAD Analysis

The following shall be documented in the Conformance Statement of any implementation claiming conformance to the Chest CAD SR SOP Class as an SCU:

  • Which types of detections and/or analyses the device is capable of performing:

    • From detections listed in Context ID 6101 Chest Finding or Feature, or Context ID 6102 Chest Finding or Feature Modifier

    • From analyses listed in Context ID 6137 Types of CAD Analysis

The following shall be documented in the Conformance Statement of any implementation claiming conformance to the Colon CAD SR SOP Class as an SCU:

  • Which types of detections and/or analyses the device is capable of performing:

    • From detections listed in Context ID 6201 Colon Finding or Feature

    • From analyses listed in Context ID 6137 Types of CAD Analysis

The following shall be documented in the Conformance Statement of any implementation claiming conformance to the Mammography CAD SR, Chest CAD SR or Colon CAD SR SOP Classes as an SCU that creates instances:

  • Which optional content items are supported

  • Conditions under which content items are assigned Rendering Intent of "Presentation Optional", and whether a CAD Operating Point value will be included with each Single Image Finding that has Rendering Intent of "Presentation Optional"

  • Recommendations for the conditions under which content items with Rendering Intent of "Presentation Optional" should be rendered, based on CAD Operating Point or otherwise

  • Conditions under which content items are assigned Rendering Intent of "Not for Presentation"

O.4.1.2 Ultrasound SR SOP Classes

The following shall be documented in the Conformance Statement of any SR creator implementation claiming conformance to the Simplified Adult Echo SR SOP Class as an SCU:
