F.2 Chest CAD SR Observation Context Encoding

The CAD Processing and Findings Summary section of the SR Document Content Tree of a Chest CAD SR IOD may contain a mixture of current and prior single image findings and composite features. The Content Items from current and prior contexts are target Content Items that have a by-value INFERRED FROM relationship to a Composite Feature Content Item. Content Items that come from a context other than the Initial Observation Context have a HAS OBS CONTEXT relationship to target Content Items that describe the context of the source document.

In Figure F.2-1, Composite Feature and Single Image Finding are current, and Single Image Finding (from Prior) is duplicated from a prior document.
