A.32.5.2 Video Endoscopic Image IOD Entity-Relationship Model

This IOD uses the E-R Model in Section A.1.2, with only the Image IE below the Series IE. The Frame of Reference IE is not a component of this IOD.


  1. The video may include audio channel(s) for acquiring Patient voice or physiological sounds, healthcare professionals' commentary, or environmental sounds.

  2. The Frame Pointers Module has not been included because the selection of relevant sub-sequence(s) is usually made in a second workflow step and stored into separate Key Object Selection Documents.

  3. The Curve IE was previously included in the list of entities that are not used, but has been retired. It is still not used in this IOD. See PS3.3-2004.
