AAAA.3.2 Acme

The first part of this example is shown above in Table AAAA.3-2.

The anatomical extent is defined in the reconstruction to represent the dataset of interest to the clinical trial. The extent was not defined in the localizer or acquisition. Sites are welcome to reflect their local practice in the localizer and acquisition extent as long as they permit production of the reconstruction as specified here.

The following tables reflect the semantic contents of constraint sequences but not the actual structure of the IOD. The centered rows in italics clarify the context of the constrained Attributes that follow by indicating which sequence in the performed module contains the constrained Attribute (as specified in the Selector Sequence Pointer).
