B.8.3 Coded Terminology and Templates

The Workflow AE is capable of supporting arbitrary coding schemes for Procedure and Protocol Codes. The contents of Requested Procedure Code Sequence (0032,1064) and Scheduled Protocol Code Sequence (0040,0008) supplied in Worklist Items will be mapped to Image IOD and MPPS attributes as described in Table B.8.1-31. During installation, a service technician will establish a mapping between the site-specific codes and the Protocol Names used internally to identify acquisition protocols.

The contents of Anatomic Region Sequence (0008,2218) in generated images will be filled with an anatomic code selected by the user from a catalog. The default catalog of anatomic codes corresponds to CID 4009 “DX Anatomy Imaged” but can be extended using the Service/Installation Tool.

The contents of Performed Procedure Step Discontinuation Reason Code Sequence (0040,0281) for a discontinued MPPS will be filled with a code selected by the user from a fixed list corresponding to CID 9300 “Procedure Discontinuation Reasons”.
