DICOM PS3.3 2021e - Information Object Definitions

F.6 Special Directory Records

F.6.1 Private Directory Record Definition

Private Directory Records may also be used in addition to Standard defined Directory Records. Such Private Records shall follow the specification of Section F.2 and Section F.3. In addition, if created by File-set Creators they shall be proper extensions to the DICOM Basic Directory IOD Information Model specified in Section F.4. By proper extensions it is meant that any File-set Creator creating private Directory Records shall still meet the PS3.10 conformance requirements. Thus a File-set Reader or File-set Updater that chooses to ignore such privately defined Directory Records will find a conformant Directory.
