Volumetric Presentation State Input Sequence

>Referenced Image Sequence

In this particular scenario usually all three VPS instances reference the same instances that create the volume from which the respective MPR is rendered.


Display applications may want to implement mechanisms for detecting when VPS SOP Instances reference exactly the same image instances within their Volumetric Presentation State Input Sequence item which creates the volume. This saves memory by loading the image instances that create the volume only once.

The Volumetric Presentation States provide no mechanism to explicitly specify the sharing of a volume by multiple VPS SOP instances.
