DICOM PS3.21 2019a - Transformations between DICOM and other Representations

A Transformation Between AIM and DICOM SR

A.1 Scope and Field of Application

NCI AIM objects that are constrained to specific use cases can be transformed to DICOM SR documents that are based on TID 1500.

NCI AIM specifies a generic model for encoding structured information about medical images. The AIM model and its XML encoding are version specific. The version transformed in this document is Version 4 [Extending AIM]. Though AIM instances can be generated according to application-specific templates [ref. AIM template builder], such templates are too use-case specific to be detailed in the transformation described in this Part. Rather, common patterns of use implemented by well known implementations (ref. CC, ref ePAD) have been abstracted and are mapped as described in this document.

DICOM SR specifies a generic model for encoding structured information about DICOM instances. DICOM TID 1500 Measurement Report specifies a basic DICOM SR report template for quantitative measurements and categorical statements for single identifiable patient subjects including regions of interest defined by spatial coordinates or segmentations.
