Note

  1. The Basic Directory Information Object definition in PS3.3 defines the following attributes as Type 1 or 2: for PATIENT directory records: (0010,0010) Patient's Name; for STUDY directory records: (0008,0050) Accession Number, (0008,0020) Study Date, (0008,1030) Study Description; for SERIES directory records: (0008,0060) Modality. Hence these are not redefined here.

  2. The Basic Directory Information Object definition in PS3.3 allows for the optional inclusion of Icon Images at the IMAGE or SERIES level. These remain optional for this profile, and the choice of whether or not to include Icon Images for every image or series, or in a more selective manner, is left up to the implementer. E.3.3.3 describes restrictions that apply to Icon Images that are included in this profile.

E.3.4.1 Image Attribute Values
