FFF.2.4.2 Image Derivation and Pixel Data Properties

This section provides information on the encoding of the derivation process and the characteristics of the stored pixel data.

FFF. User Scenario

An acquisition system performs several processing steps on an original image, and then it creates a derived image with the processed pixel data.

A viewing application applies post-processing algorithms to that derived image, e.g., measurements, segmentation etc. This application needs to know what kind of post-processing can or cannot be applied depending on the characteristics of the derived image.
