Colon CAD SR IOD Templates 

The templates that comprise the Colon CAD SR IOD are interconnected as in Figure A-9b. In Figure A-9b, '···' indicates possible recursive application of subordinate templates.

Colon CAD SR IOD Template Structure

Figure A-9b. Colon CAD SR IOD Template Structure


TID 4120 Colon CAD Document Root

This template forms the top of a content tree that allows a colon CAD device to describe the results of detection and analysis of colon evidence. This template, together with its subordinate templates, describes both the results for presentation to radiologists and partial product results for consumption by colon CAD devices in subsequent colon CAD reports.

This template defines a Container that contains the CAD results and summaries of the detection and analysis algorithms performed.

The atomic CAD results of Single Image Findings and Composite Features are described in the Colon CAD Findings Summary sub-tree.

The Summary of Detections and Summary of Analyses sub-trees gather lists of algorithms attempted, grouped by success/failure status. Algorithms not attempted are not mentioned in these sub-trees. This information forms the basis for understanding why a colon CAD report may produce no (or fewer than anticipated) results. Colon CAD results are constructed bottom-up, starting from Single Image Findings (see TID 4127 “Colon CAD Single Image Finding”), associated as Composite Features (see TID 4125 “Colon CAD Composite Feature”).

TID 4121 Colon CAD Findings Summary

The contents of this template describe the findings and aggregate features that the colon CAD device detected for the colon evidence presented. This template forms the colon CAD results sub-tree of the Colon CAD Document Root (TID 4120 “Colon CAD Document Root”). The data from which the details are inferred are expressed in the Composite Features (see TID 4125 “Colon CAD Composite Feature”) and/or Single Image Findings (see TID 4127 “Colon CAD Single Image Finding”), of which there may be several.

The sub-tree headed by this template is illustrated in Figure F.1-2 “Example of CAD Processing and Findings Summary Sub-Tree of Chest CAD SR Content Tree” in PS3.17 .

CAD Processing and Findings Summary

This code value is used to express if and why the Colon CAD Findings Summary sub-tree is empty. The Summary of Detections and Summary of Analyses sub-trees of the Document Root node contain detail about which (if any) algorithms succeeded or failed.

If the code value indicates that there were no findings, then the code value can be used to determine whether colon CAD processing occurred successfully, without parsing the Summary of Detections and Summary of Analyses sub-trees.
