Specifies the spatial position in the coordinate system of the Abstract Multi-Dimensional Image Model of the spatial frames or volumes of image data values.

Structure that defines where the pixel data is located, organized along dimensional lines.

>>Include Table A.2.5-2 “Dimensional Data Macro”

>PixelMapOfValidData

O

0-1

A pixel map that identifies which pixels either belong in or out of the Data Set. The dimensions of the pixel map match the dimensions of the image data, i.e., there is a one-to-one correspondence between samples in the image data and samples in the pixel map. The pointers to the pixel map data are included in one of the Dimension XML elements.

>>datatype

R

A

Describes how samples in the pixel map are encoded. Enumerated values are:

BIT1

UNSIGNED_INT8

For BIT1, the bit ordering starts from the least significant bit going to the most significant bit within an UNSIGNED_INT8 (i.e., 8 bit) byte. The bits are zero-padded to make a full 8-bit byte at the end of the most rapidly changing dimension (i.e., the Dimension whose idNumber is 1).

>>inValue

C

A

The value within the pixel map that indicates that this sample shall be considered as part of the Data Set. All samples whose pixel map values do not match inValue shall not be considered as part of the Data Set. Required if outValue is not present. Shall not be present if outValue is present.

>>outValue

C

A

The value within the pixel map that indicates that this sample shall not be considered as part of the Data Set. All samples whose pixel map values do not match outValue shall be considered as part of the Data Set. Required if inValue is not present. Shall not be present if inValue is present.

>>Include Table A.2.5-2 “Dimensional Data Macro”

>DataAt

O

1-n

References to where the image data is located. Only one Dimension XML Element within this AbstractImageDataSet shall have UUIDs for bulk pixel data (i.e., all bulk data references are at the same dimensional level).

Note

If the source of the data, as part of the model preparation, creates a single file for pixel data from multiple smaller native objects, then in order to provide the descriptorUUID XML Attributes the source may need to create multiple bulkDataUUIDs referring to different offsets within that single pixel data file.

>>indexWithinDimension

R

A

The ordinal position (e.g., index number) of this sample point in the array of data at this level. Numbering starts from 1.

>>descriptorUUID

C

A

A UUID that refers to the ObjectDescriptor from which this data is drawn, formatted in the hexadecimal representation defined by ITU-T Recommendation X.667.

Required at the level of the nested tree structure where the source added the data from the descriptorUUID into the Abstract Multi-Dimensional Image Model.

>>bulkDataUUID

C

A

The identifier that the recipient of the data may use in a getData() call to gain access to the bulk pixel data formatted as a UUID using the hexadecimal representation defined in ITU-T Recommendation X.667.

Required if the Dimensional Data Macro is not present at this level of the nested tree structure. Shall not be present otherwise.

>>Conditionally include Table A.2.5-2 “Dimensional Data Macro”

Only one of bulkDataUUID or Dimensional Data shall be included at each level. If Dimensional Data is included, it shall be the next lower level of the nested tree structure, that is the Dimension with an idNumber one less than the Dimension referred to by the enclosing DimensionalData.
