DICOM PS3.4 2022c - Service Class Specifications
C.6.4.5.2 Maximum Number of Records and Incomplete Response

The SCP shall send no more Pending responses (i.e., returned matching records) than the number specified by the SCU in the Maximum Number of Records (0008,041E) Attribute in the Repository Query Request Identifier. Further, the SCP may limit the number of responses in a Query transaction to its own implementation-defined resource limit. If either limit is reached, and there are additional records that satisfy the Key Attribute matching, the SCP shall send a final Status value B001 "Warning".

Note

The SCP resource limit may be a number of records, or a time limit on database operations, or another limit that allows timely completion of a Repository Query transaction.
