A.6 Association Abort for DICOM AE

Either DICOM AE may initiate an abrupt termination of an Association. This shall be accomplished by using the A-ABORT service defined in PS3.8.

Upon receiving or issuing the A-ABORT service primitive, the DICOM AE Association-requester and DICOM AE Association-acceptor shall fail any operation that is outstanding.


The Association services and presentation services defined in the Upper Layer Service in PS3.8 are a fully conformant subset of the services offered by the ACSE and the OSI Presentation Layer.
