  1. Placer Order Number / Imaging Service Request (0040,2016) and Filler Order Number / Imaging Service Request (0040,2017) are intended to convey the corresponding order numbers as defined in HL7, in the case where interoperability with an HL7 environment is the objective.

  2. Attributes (0040,2001), (0040,2006) and (0040,2007) were previously defined in DICOM. They are now retired (see PS3.3-1998).

  3. Both Requesting Service (0032,1033) and Requesting Service Code Sequence (0032,1034) are defined in this table; the latter is preferred, but the former may be copied from an HL7 message whether or not there is also the ability to map it to a coded form (e.g., with only ORC-17 component 1 valued).
