E.8 Annexes

E.8.1 IOD Contents

E.8.1.1 Created IOD Instance(s)

The EXAMPLE-PRINT-SERVER-MANAGEMENT creates the following IOD types of instances: Image Boxes, Annotation Boxes, Print Jobs, Printer, and Printer Configuration.

The attributes of the created IODs are described in the SOP Specific Conformance, Section E.4.2.1.4.1.3.

E.8.1.2 Usage of Attributes From Received IODs

The usage of attributes received in the IODs sent by the Print SCU is described in the SOP Specific Conformance, Section E.4.2.1.4.1.3.

E.8.1.3 Attribute Mapping

The following table is a mapping table of attributes that can be set by different Print IODs. If more then one IOD is setting the same element, then the value will be over-written by the IOD's value in the order from left to right, such that the Printer Configuration (PC) specific element values (as described in the mapping table #45) is in lowest order might be overwritten by any other IOD.

PC - Printer Configuration

FS - Film Session

FB - Film Box

IB - Image Box

PI - Printer Information

PJ - Print Job

The IODs in the above table are in the order from Left to Right over-writing values that are already set by previous IODs. For Example: the Print Priority element can be set by both the Film Session and the Print Job, however if both IODs are setting this values then the Print Job Print Priority value will over write the Film Session Print Priority value.

E.8.1.4 Coerced/Modified Fields

The EXAMPLE-PRINT-SERVER-MANAGEMENT AE will truncate attribute values received from the Print Composer (SCU) if the value length is longer than the maximum length permitted by the attribute VR.

E.8.2 Data Dictionary of Private Attributes

The EXAMPLE-PRINT-SERVER-MANAGEMENT AE System reserves private attribute values in group 2001. The private attributes added to created SOP instances are listed in the following table:

E.8.3 Coded Terminology and Templates

The EXAMPLE-PRINT-SERVER-MANAGEMENT is not using any Codes (SNOMED) or Controlled Terminology, such as the use of the DICOM Content Mapping Resource (DCMR).

E.8.4 Grayscale Image Consistency

The EXAMPLE-PRINT-SERVER-MANAGEMENT AE supports the Grayscale Standard Display Function (GSDF) as described in PS3.14, for the Printer Calibration and Hardcopy Image Consistency.

E.8.5 Standard Extended / Specialized / Private SOP Classes

E.8.5.1 Standard Extended Basic Film Session SOP Class

The EXAMPLE-PRINT-SERVER-MANAGEMENT is making the following extensions to DICOM SOP Classes:

SOP Class : Basic Film Session SOP

Attribute : Film Destination (2000,0040)

Extensions value : CURRENT

This extension allows the SCU to print on the destination currently configured at the printer.

SOP Class : Basic Film Session SOP

Attribute : Medium Type (2000,2000)

Extensions : CURRENT

This extension allows images to be printed on whatever media type is currently loaded in the printer.

Note that if Medium Type is specified, and a media type other than that requested is installed, then the EXAMPLE-PRINT-SERVER-MANAGEMENT will return success (0x0) and will either queue the print job until the correct media type is installed, or print on the media currently installed, based on the EXAMPLE-PRINT-SERVER-MANAGEMENT configuration. Specifying the Media Type to CURRENT will ensure that the print job will always be printed.

If Medium Type is not specified, then the default CURRENT will be used, allowing images to always be printed.

E.8.5.2 Standard Extended Basic Film Box SOP Class

SOP Class : Basic Film Box SOP

Attribute : Film Size (2010,2010)

Extensions : CURRENT

This extension allows images to be printed on whatever film size is currently loaded in the printer.

Note that if Film Size is specified, and a size other than that requested is installed, the EXAMPLE-PRINT-SERVER-MANAGEMENT will return success (0x0), and will either queue the print job until the correct sized film is installed or print on the media currently installed, based on the EXAMPLE-PRINT-SERVER-MANAGEMENT configuration. Specifying the Film Size to CURRENT will ensure that the print job will always be printed.

If Film Size is not specified, then the default CURRENT will be used, allowing images to always be printed.

E.8.5.3 Standard Extended Basic Grayscale Image Box SOP Class

SOP Class : Basic Grayscale Image Box SOP

Attribute : Bits Stored (0028,0028)

Extensions : 8-16 bits stored are supported.

DICOM only specifies 8 and 12 for number of bits stored. The EXAMPLE-PRINT-SERVER-MANAGEMENT supports the number of bits stored to be from 8 through 16 bits.

SOP Class : Basic Grayscale Image Box SOP

Attribute : High Bit (0028,0028)

Extensions : High Bit positions 7 - 15 are supported.

DICOM specifies that the high bit must be the 7th or 11th bit (for 8 or 12 bits stored, respectively). The EXAMPLE-PRINT-SERVER-MANAGEMENT supports the high bit to be the number of bits stored minus one. For example, if the number of bits stored is 13, the high bit is 12.

E.8.6 Private Transfer Syntaxes

No Private Transfer Syntaxes is supported.
