XXX.3.7 Ultrasound Color Flow MPR

XXX.3.7.1 User Scenario

Ultrasound images and volumes are able to depict both anatomic tissue information (usually shown as a grayscale image) along with functional tissue motion or blood flow information (usually shown in colors representing motion towards or away from the ultrasound transducer).

The sample illustration in Figure XXX.3.7-1 is comprised of three Color Flow MPR presentations that are approximately mutually orthogonal in the VPS Reference Coordinate System. Each presentation is described by one Planar MPR Volumetric Presentation State instance, with layout and overlay graphics provided by a Hanging Protocol instance. The three VPS instances share the same value of Presentation Display Collection UID (0070,1101) indicating that they are intended to be displayed together.
