XXX.3.4 Replacing Set of Derived Images With Single VPS Using Crosscurve Animation

XXX.3.4.1 User Scenario

Another technique for depicting a set of derived images is to have a single Planar MPR VPS SOP Instance that describes an initial Planar MPR view, and specify cross-curve animation to generate the other related views. A straight-line curve is specified that begins at the center of the initial Planar MPR view and ends at the intended center of the last Planar MPR view of the set. A step size is specified to be the distance between the first and last points of the line divided by the number of desired slices minus one. A Recommended Animation Rate (0070,1A03) is specified if the creator wishes to provide a hint to the display application to scroll through the slices in the set, or could be omitted to leave the animation method to the discretion of the display application.

Additional MPR views are generated by moving the view that is defined in the VPS in Animation Step Size (0070,1A05) steps perpendicular along the curve
