TID 10003 Irradiation Event X-Ray Data

This Template conveys the dose and equipment parameters of a single irradiation event.

The Template and requirements are structured to consider equipment with various levels of integration between the components (X-Ray Source, Plate or Detector, and Gantry/Table) of the equipment.

An irradiation event is the loading of X-Ray equipment caused by a single continuous actuation of the equipment's irradiation switch, from the start of the loading time of the first pulse until the loading time trailing edge of the final pulse. The irradiation event is the "smallest" information entity to be recorded in the realm of Radiation Dose reporting. Individual Irradiation Events are described by a set of accompanying physical parameters that are sufficient to understand the "quality" of irradiation that is being applied. This set of parameters may be different for the various types of equipment that are able to create irradiation events. Any automatic on-off switching of the irradiation source during the event shall not be treated as separate events, rather the event includes the time between start and stop of irradiation as triggered by the user. E.g., a pulsed fluoro X-Ray acquisition shall be treated as a single irradiation event.

As described in Section 6.2.4, measurement concepts may be post-coordinated, even though not explicitly specified in the Template. In particular, post-coordination using modifier concept (121401, DCM, "Derivation"), with modifier values drawn from CID 10009 “Measured/Calculated” would be appropriate to encode indications of measured or of calculated values.

Content Item Descriptions

Row 3

If the image generating entity does not assign a DICOM UID to the irradiation event (e.g., for non-digital imaging equipment), the application generating this report shall assign a UID.

In the case of non-integrated cassette-based equipment, a standalone Detector will generate UIDs for the Events it observes. If the X-Ray Source component of the equipment also reports information, it too will generate UIDs for the Events it creates. A downstream system (e.g., a workstation or the Dose Information Reporter itself) may combine the two reports into a composite report, and match up the events based on details such as the time information, and use the UIDs of the X-Ray Source.

Row 6

The DateTime that the application of X-Rays started for this irradiation event. This shall correspond to the start of the first irradiation in the Irradiation Event, which defines the starting point for the calculation of Row 36 "Irradiation Duration".

Row 17

The target region is the anatomy exposed.

Row 17b

Previously, a CODE content item (T-D0005, SRT, "Anatomical structure") along with CODE concept modifier (G-C171, SRT, "Laterality") were used to identify bilateral anatomy. This duplicated the function of Row 17 and was retired. See PS3.16 2017c.

Row 21

A text definition of the Reference Point (RP) used for RP-related dose values.

Row 22

A coded definition of the Reference Point (RP) used for RP-related dose values

Row 26

People responsible for the administration of the radiation reported in the irradiation event. May include values that would appear in Performing Physicians' Name (0008,1050), Performing Physician Identification Sequence (0008,1052), Operators' Name (0008,1070) and/or Operator Identification Sequence (0008,1072).
