A.4.11 Encapsulated Uncompressed Explicit VR Little Endian

The DICOM Transfer Syntax for Encapsulated Uncompressed Explicit VR Little Endian encodes a stream of one or more frames of uncompressed pixel data as Encapsulated fragments, and shall be identified by a UID value of "1.2.840.10008.1.2.1.98".

If the object allows multi-frame images in the pixel data field, then each frame shall be encoded separately. Each frame shall be encoded​ in one and only one Fragment (see Section 8.2).

Within the Item Value of each Fragment (frame), the PixelData shall be encoded in the same manner as if it were encoded in Native format, including byte order, and padding to an even Item Length. OB VR shall be used, as required for all Encapsulated Format Transfer Syntaxes.
