A.80.2.4 Volume Rendering Volumetric Presentation State IOD Content Constraints

A. Presentation Input Restrictions

Presentation Input Type (0070,1202) shall have a value of VOLUME.

See Section B.5.1.24 “Volume Rendering Volumetric Presentation State Storage SOP Classes” in PS3.4 for SOP Class-specific Presentation Input Restrictions.

A. Graphic Annotation Module

The values of the following Attributes, if present, shall be DISPLAY:

  • Bounding Box Annotation Units (0070,0003)

  • Anchor Point Annotation Units (0070,0004)

  • Graphic Annotation Units (0070,0005)

  • Compound Graphics Units (0070,0282)


The specified annotation is associated with the specified View and not with the input data, and may have clinical relevance only to the specified View. Therefore, if an application alters the View from that defined by the Presentation State, annotation may no longer be clinically correct.

A. Render Shading Module

If the Render Shading Module is omitted for a rendered view, an unshaded volume rendering shall be performed.

A. Volumetric Presentation State Reference Coordinate System

All SOP Instances referenced in the Volumetric Presentation State Relationship Module shall be registered to the Volumetric Presentation State Reference Coordinate System. See C.11.23.3.
