>PixelMapOfValidData

O

01

A pixel map that identifies which pixels either belong in or out of the Data Set. The dimensions of the pixel map match the dimensions of the image data, i.e., there is a onetoone correspondence between samples in the image data and samples in the pixel map. The pointers to the pixel map data are included in one of the Dimension XML elements.

>>datatype

A

Describes how samples in the pixel map are encoded. Enumerated values are:
BIT1
UNSIGNED_INT8
For BIT1, the bit ordering starts from the least significant bit going to the most significant bit within an UNSIGNED_INT8 (i.e., 8 bit) byte. The bits are zeropadded to make a full 8bit byte at the end of the most rapidly changing dimension (i.e., the Dimension whose idNumber is 1).

>>inValue

C

A

The value within the pixel map that indicates that this sample shall be considered as part of the Data Set. All samples whose pixel map values do not match inValue shall not be considered as part of the Data Set. Required if outValue is not present. Shall not be present if outValue is present.

>>outValue

C

A

The value within the pixel map that indicates that this sample shall not be considered as part of the Data Set. All samples whose pixel map values do not match outValue shall be considered as part of the Data Set. Required if inValue is not present. Shall not be present if inValue is present.
