A.7 Ultrasound Multi-frame Image IOD

A.7.1 US Image IOD Description

The Ultrasound (US) Multi-frame Image Information Object Definition specifies a Multi-frame image that has been created by an ultrasound imaging device.

A.7.2 US Multi-frame Image IOD Entity-Relationship Model

The E-R Model in Section A.1.2 depicts those components of the DICOM Application Information Model that directly reference the US Multi-frame Image IOD. The Overlay IE, Modality LUT IE and VOI LUT IE are not components of the US Multi-frame Image IOD.

A.7.3 US Image IOD Module Table (Retired)

This Section was defined in a previous version of the DICOM Standard. The Section is now retired.

Note

  1. For the purpose of conveying ultrasound protocol data management information it is recommended that the Performed Protocol Code Sequence (0040,0260) be assigned the code value(s) of the performed ultrasound protocol, if any. The Baseline Context Group for these code values is CID 12001 “Ultrasound Protocol Types” (defined in PS3.16).

  2. The US Frame of Reference Module was previously included in this IOD, but has been retired. See PS3.3-2003.

A.7.4.1 Mutually Exclusive IEs

Note

A Curve IE was previously included in this IOD that was mutually exclusive with the Image IE, but has been retired. See PS3.3-2004.
