One or more Items shall be included in this Sequence.

>>Referenced Expected In-Vivo Measurement Value Index

(300A,0773)

3

Expected In-Vivo Measurement Value Index (300A,0622) in the Expected In-Vivo Measurement Value Sequence (300A,0621) from the RT Radiation Set Instance that is being recorded.

C.36.21.1 RT Dose Contribution Record Module Attribute Descriptions

C.36.21.1.1 Conceptual Volume Sequence

The Conceptual Volume Sequence (3010,0025) identifies a Conceptual Volume defining a volume for which dose has been recorded during treatments.

If the Conceptual Volume is associated with a segment, the segment is defined by the Referenced Segment Reference Index (3010,0020) in the Conceptual Volume Segmentation Reference and Combination Macro (see Section 10.34).

Alternatively, the Conceptual Volume might not be associated with a segment; for example, when dose recording is specified using a nominal dose to a volume and the tracking coefficients are approximated by Meterset values.

Typically, this Module references Conceptual Volumes which have been used in the RT Dose Contribution Module of the RT Radiation Set SOP Instance referenced by the Referenced RT Radiation Set Sequence (300A,0702).
