PP.2.2 Hierarchy of Use Cases

This section organizes the list of use cases into a hierarchy. Section PP.3 maps items in this hierarchy to specific solutions in the DICOM Standard.

  1. Data

    1. 3D Volume Data

      1. Static and Dynamic volume data (Cases 1 and 2)

      2. Suitable for applications that create MPR and Render views (Cases 3 and 4)

      3. 3D size measurements (Case 5)

    2. 2D representations of 3D volume data (Cases 6, 7, and 8)

      1. Static and Dynamic varieties (Case 9)

      2. 2D size measurements (Case 10)
