A.74 Breast Projection X-Ray Image Information Object Definition

A.74.1 Breast Projection X-Ray Image IOD Description

The Breast Projection X-Ray Image Information Object Definition specifies an image set that has been created by a digital mammography projection radiography imaging device.

Note

The preferred IOD for traditional digital mammography is Digital Mammography X-Ray Image.

The Breast Projection X-Ray Image IOD is used in two SOP Classes as defined in PS3.4 Storage Service Class, a SOP Class for storage of images intended for presentation, and a SOP Class for storage of images intended for further processing before presentation. These are distinguished by their SOP Class UID and by the Enumerated Value of the mandatory attribute in the DX Series Module, Presentation Intent Type (0008,0068).

A.74.2 Breast Projection X-Ray 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 Breast Projection X-Ray Image IOD. Additionally, "Image" in Section A.1.1 may represent a Single Frame or a Multi-Frame image. A frame denotes a two-dimensional organization of pixels recorded as a single exposure.
