P.2 Access Protocols

P.2.1 URI Format

The URI for non-DICOM protocol access to stored SOP Instances shall be inaccordance with [RFC3986].

If the URI is split between two data elements, a base URI and a relative path, the merger of those data elements in accordance with [RFC3986] Section 5.2.3 "Merge Paths" shall form the conformant URI. The split shall be at a path segment boundary, and if a slash ("/") character occurs at that boundary, it shall be placed in the base URI data element only. The second data element comprising the relative path shall begin with a single-dot-segment "./".

Dot-segments shall not otherwise be used.
