X.2.2 Transcribed Text Data Format

The transcribed dictation is used to populate one or more section containers in the content tree of the SR Instance. If the transcription consists of a single undifferentiated text stream, it will typically be encoded using a single CONTAINER content item with Concept Name "Findings", and the text encoded as the value in a subsidiary TEXT content item with Concept Name "Finding". When the transcription is differentiated into multiple sections with captions, e.g., using the concepts in CID 7001 “Diagnostic Imaging Report Headings”, each section may be encoded in a separate CONTAINER, with the concept from CID 7001 “Diagnostic Imaging Report Headings” as the container Concept Name, and the corresponding term from CID 7002 “Diagnostic Imaging Report Elements” as the Concept Name for a subsidiary TEXT content item. See Figure X.2-1.
