DICOM PS3.20 2019a - Imaging Reports using HL7 Clinical Document Architecture

9.8.11.4 entry/procedure/effectiveTime

The HL7v3 IVL <TS> Data Type used for effectiveTime requires the specification of absolute dates, rather than a date relative to the date of the report.

Note

Thus the concept "follow-up within one year" needs to be encoded as a IVL <TS> with an effectiveTime/high element value one year after the date of the report.
