HHHH Protocol Approval Examples and Concepts (Informative)

The following example is provided to illustrate the usage of the Protocol Approval IOD.

This example shows approval of a pair of CT Protocols for routine adult head studies. It is approved by the Chief of Radiology and by the Physicist. The Instance UIDs of the two CT Protocols are 1.2.3.456.7.7 and 1.2.3.456.7.8.

Note that the Institution Code Sequence (0008,0082) inside the Asserter Identification Sequence (0044,0103) communicates that Mercy Hospital is the organization to which Dr. Welby is responsible. The Institution Code Sequence (0008,0082) at the end of the first Approval Item communicates that Mercy Hospital is the institution for which the protocols are "Approved for use at the institution".
