KK.2.2.1.1 Scope of Inventory Sequence

The Scope of Inventory Sequence (0008,0400) specifies constraints on Studies to be included in the Inventory. See the Attribute descriptions for the Scope of Inventory Sequence (0008,0400) in Section C.38.2.1 “Scope of Inventory Macro” in PS3.3.

The Attributes are similar to Key Attributes used for Attribute matching in the Query/Retrieve Service Class (see Section C.2.2.2). The Attribute values provided in the N-ACTION shall be matched against the values of Attributes of Studies managed by the SCP, in accordance with the requirements of this section, with matching Studies to be included in the produced Inventory. Studies that match all specified keys shall be included in the produced Inventory.

The Scope of Inventory Sequence (0008,0400) may be zero-length to indicate universal match to all Studies in the repository (i.e., a comprehensive Inventory).

KK.2.2.1.2 Inventory Level

Inventory Level (0008,0403) specifies the types of records requested for inclusion in the produced Inventory SOP Instances. Inventories may be requested with Study level records, with Study and Series level records, or with Study, Series, and Instance level records.
