CID 29 Acquisition Modality

This Context Group includes codes that may be used to identify the type of diagnostic equipment, or function or technique of that equipment, that originally acquired, through interaction with a patient or specimen, the data used to create the instance. These codes are used in Attribute Modality (0008,0060) of a Modality Worklist Scheduled Procedure Step or a Composite SOP Instance (see PS3.3). It generally corresponds to a class of diagnostic equipment, or to a specific acquisition function or technique in a device. his Context Group may be used as the value set for HL7 v2 Table 0259 (see HL7 v2.6 Chapter 8 Section 8.8.8.47).

Note

This Context Group is not the complete set of codes that may appear in the Attribute Modality (0008,0060); these are only the codes associated with orderable acquisition processes (not pre-acquisition activities or post-processing).
