C.11.23.2 Input Sequence Position Index

A sequence of inputs may be used in an animation. In this form of animation, the Presentation State is applied to each input in a sequence of inputs to produce a moving view. The inputs belonging to the input sequence are identified by the inclusion of an Input Sequence Position Index (0070,1203) value for each included input. See the INPUT_SEQ animation style in Section C.11.29.


Examples include:

  • a sequence of cardiac volume acquisitions acquired through a heart cycle

  • a sequence of volume acquisitions during multiple phases of passage of a contrast agent

There is another animation method "Presentation Sequence Animation" that may be used. See Section C.11.22.2 “Presentation Sequence Collection UID”.
