EEEE.4 Image and Frame of Derived Diffusion Model Parametric Maps

This example illustrates how to encode the Image and Frame Type values of an ADC Parametric Map image.

Parametric maps are of the enhanced multi-frame family, so they use the standard roles of Image Flavor for Value 3 and Derived Pixel Contrast for Value 4.

The specific requirement are defined in Section C.8.32.2 “Parametric Map Image Module” in PS3.3 and Section C. “Parametric Map Frame Type Macro” in PS3.3 .

Since this is a derived diffusion image that contains ADC value, suitable values are:

This usage is consistent with the requirements for Image and Frame Type in the IHE Diffusion (DIFF) profile (http://wiki.ihe.net/index.php/MR_Diffusion_Imaging).
