DICOM PS3.18 2020e - Web Services Character Set Query Parameter

The Character Set Query Parameter has the following syntax:

character-set = "charset" "=" 1#(charset [weight])

The Character Set Query Parameter value is a comma-separated list of one or more character set identifiers. It is like the Accept-Charset header field, except that it shall not have wildcards. See Section 8.8.


Character set identifiers present in the character set Query Parameter typically have a corresponding character set identifier in the Accept-Charset header field, either explicitly or implicitly through wildcards.

If this parameter has a value that is not a valid or supported character set, the origin server shall return a 400 (Bad Request) response and may include a payload containing an appropriate Status Report. See Section 8.6.3.
