This document specifies the DICOM implementation. It is entitled:
SIGNA Pioneer PX25
Conformance Statement for DICOM
Direction DOC1613413
This DICOM Conformance Statement documents the DICOM Conformance
Statement and Technical Specification required to interoperate with the GEHC
network interface.
The GEHC Conformance Statement, contained in this document, also specifies the
Lower Layer communications which it supports (e.g., TCP/IP). However, the
Technical Specifications are defined in the DICOM Part 8 standard.
For more information regarding DICOM, copies of the Standard may be obtained on
the Internet at http://medical.nema.org. Comments on the Standard may be
addressed to:

1.3 INTENDED AUDIENCE
The reader of this document is concerned with software design and/or system
integration issues. It is assumed that the reader of this document is familiar with
the DICOM Standard and with the terminology and concepts which are used in that
Standard.
1.4 SCOPE AND FIELD OF APPLICATION
It is the intent of this document to provide an unambiguous specification for GEHC
implementations. This specification, called a Conformance Statement, includes a
DICOM Conformance Statement and is necessary to ensure proper processing and
interpretation of GEHC medical data exchanged using DICOM. The GEHC
Conformance Statements are available to the public.
The reader of this DICOM Conformance Statement should be aware that different
GEHC devices are capable of using different Information Object Definitions. For
example, a GEHC CT Scanner may send images using the CT Information Object, MR
Information Object, Secondary Capture Object, etc.
Included in this DICOM Conformance Statement are the Module Definitions which
define all data elements used by this GEHC implementation. If the user encounters
unspecified private data elements while parsing a GEHC Data Set, the user is well
advised to ignore those data elements (per the DICOM standard). Unspecified
private data element information is subject to change without notice. If, however,
the device is acting as a "full fidelity storage device", it should retain and re-transmit
all of the private data elements which are sent by GEHC devices.
Private data elements may be updated from one release to the next release. This is
done in order to add additional information or remove information that does not
apply to the image object. Please refer to the appropriate product release DICOM
Conformance Statement for the list of private elements supported.

1.5 IMPORTANT REMARKS
The use of these DICOM Conformance Statements, in conjunction with the DICOM
Standards, is intended to facilitate communication with GE imaging equipment.
However, by itself, it is not sufficient to ensure that inter-operation will be
successful. The user (or user's agent) needs to proceed with caution and
address at least four issues:
•
Integration - The integration of any device into an overall system of
interconnected devices goes beyond the scope of standards (DICOM v3.0), and
of this introduction and associated DICOM Conformance Statements when
interoperability with non-GE equipment is desired. The responsibility to analyze
the applications requirements and to design a solution that integrates GE
imaging equipment with non–GE systems is the user's responsibility and should
not be underestimated. The user is strongly advised to ensure that such an
integration analysis is correctly performed.
•
Validation - Testing the complete range of possible interactions between any GE
device and non–GE devices, before the connection is declared operational,
should not be overlooked. Therefore, the user should ensure that any non–GE
provider accepts full responsibility for all validation required for their connection
with GE devices. This includes the accuracy of the image data once it has
crossed the interface between the GE imaging equipment and the non–GE
device and the stability of the image data for the intended applications.
Such a validation is required before any clinical use (diagnosis and/or treatment)
is performed. It applies when images acquired on GE imaging equipment are
processed/displayed on a non-GE device, as well as when images acquired on
non-GE equipment is processed/displayed on a GE console or workstation.
•
Future Evolution - GE understands that the DICOM Standard will evolve to meet
the user's growing requirements. GE is actively involved in the development of
the DICOM Standard. DICOM will incorporate new features and technologies and
GE may follow the evolution of the Standard. The GEHC protocol is based on
DICOM as specified in each DICOM Conformance Statement. Evolution of the
Standard may require changes to devices which have implemented DICOM. In
addition, GE reserves the right to discontinue or make changes to the support
of communications features (on its products) described by these DICOM
Conformance Statements. The user should ensure that any non–GE provider,
which connects with GE devices, also plans for the future evolution of the DICOM
Standard. Failure to do so will likely result in the loss of function and/or
connectivity as the DICOM Standard changes and GE Products are enhanced to
support these changes.
•
Interaction - It is the sole responsibility of the non–GE provider to ensure that
communication with the interfaced equipment does not cause degradation of
GE imaging equipment performance and/or function.

1.7 DEFINITIONS
Informal definitions are provided for the following terms used in this Conformance
Statement. The DICOM Standard is the authoritative source for formal definitons of
these terms.
Abstract Syntax – the information agreed to be exchanged between applications,
generally equivalent to a Service/Object Pair (SOP) Class. Examples : Verification SOP
Class, Modality Worklist Information Model Find SOP Class, Computed Radiography
Image Storage SOP Class.
Application Entity (AE) – an end point of a DICOM information exchange, including
the DICOM network or media interface software; i.e., the software that sends or
receives DICOM information objects or messages. A single device may have
multiple Application Entities.
Application Entity Title – the externally known name of an Application Entity, used to
identify a DICOM application to other DICOM applications on the network.
Application Context – the specification of the type of communication used between
Application Entities. Example: DICOM network protocol.
Association – a network communication channel set up between Application
Entities.
Attribute – – a unit of information in an object definition; a data element identified
by a tag. The information may be a complex data structure (Sequence), itself
composed of lower level data elements. Examples: Patient ID (0010,0020), Accession
Number (0008,0050), Photometric Interpretation (0028,0004), Procedure Code
Sequence (0008,1032).
Information Object Definition (IOD) – the specified set of Attributes that comprise a
type of data object; does not represent a specific instance of the data object, but
rather a class of similar data objects that have the same properties. The Attributes
may be specified as Mandatory (Type 1), Required but possibly unknown (Type 2), or
Optional (Type 3), and there may be conditions associated with the use of an
Attribute (Types 1C and 2C). Examples: MR Image IOD, CT Image IOD, Print Job IOD.
Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) – a set of standardized image
compression techniques, available for use by DICOM applications.
Media Application Profile – the specification of DICOM information objects and
encoding exchanged on removable media (e.g., CDs)
Module – a set of Attributes within an Information Object Definition that are logically
related to each other. Example: Patient Module includes Patient Name, Patient ID,
Patient Birth Date, and Patient Sex.
Negotiation – first phase of Association establishment that allows Application
Entities to agree on the types of data to be exchanged and how that data will be
encoded.
Presentation Context – the set of DICOM network services used over an Association,
as negotiated between Application Entities; includes Abstract Syntaxes and Transfer
Syntaxes.
Protocol Data Unit (PDU) – a packet (piece) of a DICOM message sent across the
network. Devices must specify the maximum size packet they can receive for
DICOM messages.

DICOM CONFORMANCE STATEMENT
GE Healthcare
DIR DOC1613413 REV 2
Security Profile – a set of mechanisms, such as encryption, user authentication, or
digital signatures, used by an Application Entity to ensure confidentiality, integrity,
and/or availability of exchanged DICOM data
Service Class Provider (SCP) – role of an Application Entity that provides a DICOM
network service; typically, a server that performs operations requested by another
Application Entity (Service Class User). Examples: Picture Archiving and
Communication System (image storage SCP, and image query/retrieve SCP),
Radiology Information System (modality worklist SCP).
Service Class User (SCU) – role of an Application Entity that uses a DICOM network
service; typically, a client. Examples: imaging modality (image storage SCU, and
modality worklist SCU), imaging workstation (image query/retrieve SCU)
Service/Object Pair (SOP) Class – the specification of the network or media transfer
(service) of a particular type of data (object); the fundamental unit of DICOM
interoperability specification. Examples: Ultrasound Image Storage Service, Basic
Grayscale Print Management.
Service/Object Pair (SOP) Instance – an information object; a specific occurrence of
information exchanged in a SOP Class. Examples: a specific x-ray image.
Tag – a 32-bit identifier for a data element, represented as a pair of four digit
hexadecimal numbers, the “group” and the “element”. If the “group” number is odd,
the tag is for a private (manufacturer-specific) data element. Examples: (0010,0020)
[Patient ID], (07FE,0010) [Pixel Data], (0019,0210) [private data element]
Transfer Syntax – the encoding used for exchange of DICOM information objects
and messages. Examples: JPEG compressed (images), little endian explicit value
representation.
Unique Identifier (UID) – a globally unique “dotted decimal” string that identifies a
specific object or a class of objects; an ISO-8824 Object Identifier. Examples: Study
Instance UID, SOP Class UID, SOP Instance UID.
Value Representation (VR) – the format type of an individual DICOM data element,
such as text, an integer, a person’s name, or a code. DICOM information objects
can be transmitted with either explicit identification of the type of each data element
(Explicit VR), or without explicit identification (Implicit VR); with Implicit VR, the
receiving application must use a DICOM data dictionary to look up the format of
each data element.

Note: The DICOM SERVER AE accepts also the DICOM Verification SOP class as a
SCP. It is not indicated on the illustration above.
The DICOM SERVER Application Entity (AE) is an application that handles DICOM
protocol communication. The DICOM SERVER AE is automatically brought up when
the SIGNA Pioneer is initialized.
The DICOM SERVER AE is invoked by the following Real World Activities:
•
Push Images
For this operation, the operator selects some studies, series or images on
the browser and then sends the selected studies, series or images to one or
several remote DICOM AE by clicking on the icon that represents the wanted
remote DICOM AE.
The transfer activity is displayed on a specific icon.
The declaration of remote DICOM AE is done through a configuration tool.
•
Manual Query
For this operation, the operator queries one or a set of remote DICOM
databases to obtain a list of data at Study/Series/Image level by clicking on
the icon that represents the wanted remote DICOM AE.
•
Manual Retrieve
Once the remote browser has displayed (Manual Query) query results, the
operator can retrieve the study/series/images from the remote DICOM AE.
•
Receive images
When remote DICOM hosts sends DICOM images to DICOM SERVER AE ,
images are installed in the local database, the browser displays the content
of the local database.
•
Search Local Database
For this operation, a remote DICOM AE asks to obtain the list of data at
Study/Series/Image level.
•
Move Images
For this operation, a remote DICOM AE asks to send data at
Study/Series/Image level from the local AE to another DICOM Remote AE.
The Remote DICOM AE shall be declared locally on the system. The
declaration of remote DICOM AE is done through a configuration tool.
•
Remote Archive
For this operation, the operator selects some studies, series or images on
the browser and clicks on the icon that represents the wanted remote
DICOM AE. This initiates the DICOM push of the selected
exam/series/images to the remote AE. After the successful storage of the
selected exam/series/images on the remote AE, a storage commitment
request is sent to the remote DICOM AE. The transfer/storage commit
activity is displayed on a specific icon.
The declaration of remote DICOM AE with archiving support is done through
the configuration tool on browser.

•
Listen to remote Storage Commitment SCP
The DICOM SERVER AE is indefinitely listening for association requests. No
operator action is required to receive a Storage Commitment notification
(N-EVENT-REPORT).
•
Verify Connectivity
The operator can choose to verify a remote Application Entity. Upon user’s
request, DICOM SERVER AE sends out a verification request to a Remote AE.
The DICOM SERVER AE also acts as an SCP for incoming Verification
requests. No operator action is required to process Verification requests
from Remote AEs.
•
Modality Worklist Query
The user or the system initiates a modality worklist query to the modality
worklist SCP with a given set of query parameters. The modality worklist SCP
returns responses matching the query parameters. Worklist items from the
returned worklist query responses are presented to the user. The user then
chooses the desired worklist item and begins the image acquisition process.
•
Modality Performed Procedure Step Notification
When the user begins the image acquisition process and generates the first
image, the DICOM SERVER AE sends a N-CREATE message to the configured
MPPS SCP to indicate that the image acquisition process has been started
for the requested procedure.
The user can close the acquisition session either by completing the
acquisition process or discontinuing the ongoing scan. On closing the
acquisition session, the DICOM SERVER AE sends N-SET message to the
configured MPPS SCP to indicate the acquisition state of the requested
procedure, with appropriate MPPS status (COMPLETED/DISCONTINUED).
•
Print
The Film Composer allows the user to select printers and it also allows the
user to drag and drop the images (from viewer application) into the film.
When user presses the "Print" Button, the DICOM SERVER AE tries to
establish the association with requested printer and sends the images for
printing.
2.2.2 Functional Definition of AE's
DICOM SERVER AE can receive and initiate DICOM association requests.It runs as a
UNIX process and is automatically started as part of SIGNA Pioneer application
startup.
Once started, the DICOM SERVER AE will wait for other DICOM applications to
connect to its DICOM services.
Client applications on SIGNA Pioneer also have the ability to initiate DICOM
associations to remote DICOM devices for Verification, Storage, Storage
Commitment, Print, Query/Retrieve, Modality Worklist Query and MPPS services
through DICOM SERVER AE.

When the DICOM SERVER Application Entity initiates an Association for any RealWorld Activity, it will propose the Presentation Contexts for all Real-World Activities;
i.e., there is only a single, comprehensive Presentation Context Negotiation proposed
for the AE.
The DICOM SERVER AE proposes all supported Transfer Syntaxes in a single
Presentation Context for a given Abstract Syntax. i.e., for each Abstract Syntax in the
following Presentation Context Tables, the AE proposes one Presentation Context
with all Transfer Syntaxes supported for that Abstract Syntax.
2.3.1.2.1 Real-World Activity: Push Images
2.3.1.2.1.1 Associated Real-World Activity
The operator first selects the exam/series/image on the local database browser and
clicks on the Remote DICOM AE to which the operator desires to send the
exam/series/image to.
If multiple exams/series are chosen to be pushed, one association will be established
for each of the exam/series. A single association will be used for multiple C-STORE
operations necessary for the images in a individual series.
2.3.1.2.1.2 Proposed Presentation Context Table
The following table shows the proposed presentation contexts for the DICOM
SERVER AE after Real-World Activity “Push Images” operation has been performed.

2.3.1.2.1.2.1 SOP Specific DICOM Conformance Statement for All Storage SOP Classes
This implementation can perform multiple C-STORE operations over a single
association.
Upon receiving a C-STORE confirmation containing a successful status, this
implementation will perform the next C-STORE operation. The association will be
maintained if possible.
Upon receiving a C-STORE confirmation containing a Refused status, this
implementation will consider the current request to be a failure and will terminate
the association.

DIR DOC1613413 REV 2
For all C-STORE statuses other than success or warnings received, this
implementation will consider the current request to be a failure and will terminate
the association, except if the C-STORE is invoked from a C-MOVE SCP. In this case it
will continue to attempt to send the remaining images in the request on the same
association. The error details will be logged in the log files.
Each C-STORE operation supports an “Association Timer”. This timer starts when the
association request is sent and stops when the association is established. Default
time-out is 60 seconds and is configurable.
Each C-STORE operation supports an “Operation Inactivity Timer”. This timer starts
when a C-STORE request is emitted and is reset each time a C-STORE response has
been received, or when subsequent C-STORE are received. Default time-out is 300
seconds and is configurable.
If any of the two timers mentioned above expires, the connection is aborted and the
operation is considered as failed.

2.3.1.2.2 Real-World Activity: Manual Query
2.3.1.2.2.1 Associated Real-World Activity
The operator queries a Remote database by clicking on the corresponding icon on
the SIGNA Pioneer browser source dropdown.
If the “Custom search” parameter on the remote host is set to “Off”, the “Query”
operation will cause the DICOM SERVER AE to initiate an association and send a nonfiltered request (with zero length Patient name, Patient id, Study date, Accession
number, and Study id) to the selected Remote AE.
If the "Custom search" parameter on the remote host is set to "On", the “Query”
operation will cause a “Filter Data” menu to appear. The operator can enter values
for Patient name, Patient Id, Study Id, Accession number, and Study date. Not
entering a value will result in universal match for that field. For Study date, the
operator selects a date matching type from the "Exam date" pull down menu, where
the choices are Equals, Between, Before or After. Once a date matching type is
selected, the correct number of fields appear and the operator enters dates into
those fields. Once the desired parameters are entered the operator chooses "Ok".

2.3.1.2.2.2.1 SOP Specific DICOM Conformance Statement for the Study Root Query/Retrieve Information Model FIND SOP Classes
The C-FIND SCU will only perform hierarchical query (No extended negotiation
supported).
The Study level query will request for studies in the remote database that match the
user specified Patient name, Patient ID, Study date, Accession number, and Study ID.
Zero length data in any of the field means match on any value. Zero length data is
the default value if the user does not specify a value.
In addition to Universal Matching, several filter types can be applied for the query.
Here is the list of the supported filter types:
Filter type
Filter description
Single Value Matching
This is to obtain an exact match on the value contained in a Key
Attribute
List of UID Matching
This is to obtain a match on any of the UID items present in a list
of UIDs in a Key Attribute.
Wild Card Matching
This is to obtain a match on any sequence of characters
contained in a Key Attribute.
“*” or “?” characters present in the Key Attribute, where “*”
shall match any sequence of characters and “?” matches
against a single character.

Range Matching
This is to obtain a match on values of date and time contained
in the Key Attributes
“<date1> - <date2>“ to match against all values that fall in
this date range
“-<date>“ to match against all values that are before this
date
“<date> -” to match against all values that are after this
date
User can specify patient name search criteria to be an exact match or a wild card
match. Wild card searches are specified using asterisk (*). Below samples
demonstrate some of the search patterns.
“”

The DICOM SERVER AE will parse each matching C-FIND-RSP reply and will abort the
association if an entry does not contain a valid dataset.
Each C-FIND SCU operation supports an “Association Timer” and “Operation
Inactivity Timer” using QueryAssociationTimeout and QueryResponseTimeout
configuration parameters. Default values are 30 seconds, 5 minutes respectively.
The user can cancel the current C-FIND request by initiating Query activity to
another network node or clicking on the local database. If a query operation is in
progress, the DICOM SERVER AE will issue a C-FIND-CANCEL message to the remote
AE to discontinue the ongoing C-FIND operation.
If a “Failure” status is returned from the Remote AE, the association is closed and the
operation terminated.

NOTE: When a Real-World activity “Manual Retrieve” is initiated, all presentation
contexts specified in the above table are proposed during association establishment,
but only the Query/Retrieve-MOVE releated context is applicable to this activity.
2.3.1.2.3.2.1 SOP Specific DICOM Conformance Statement for the Study Root Query/Retrieve Information Model MOVE SOP Classes
When the operator initiates a Move operation at any level (Study, Series, Image) the
DICOM SERVER AE will initiate a C-MOVE-RQ request to the Remote AE with the
DICOM SERVER AE as the Destination AE. The Storage SCP (refer section 2.3.1.3.1 “Receive Images”) will handle the incoming images.
Each C-MOVE SCU supports an “Association Timer” and an “Operation Inactivity
Timer”. These timers are defaulted to 60 and 300 seconds respectively. These timers
are configurable.
The C-MOVE SCU supports only the Baseline behavior and does not negotiate for
Extended behavior during association. During the move operations, Unique Key
values for all levels above the Query/Retrieve Level specified will be supplied in the
C-MOVE request.
The DICOM SERVER AE does not send a C-MOVE request with List of UIDs. If the user
chooses multiple exams from the remote browser for retrieval, then individual
retrieve-jobs for each exam selected will be created. Each retrieve-job will create
separate association and send one C-MOVE request with single exam UID to retrieve
the exam. The system works the same way when the user tries to retrieve multiple
series.
However, if the user tries to retrieve multiple images within a series, then a single
retrieve-job is created. Image level retrieve-job will create single association and
sends multiple C-MOVE requests; one C-MOVE request per image within the same
association.
If the C-MOVE SCU receives a status different from success (0x0000) or pending
(0xFF00) during the association, the DICOM SERVER AE will release the association.
This information will be logged in the system log files and the network/job manager
queue will be updated accordingly.
During Manual Retrieve, the DICOM SERVER AE is able to generate a C-MOVECANCEL.
When a Cancel response (0xFE00) is received, the DICOM SERVER AE will release the
association. This information will be logged in the system log files and the network
queue will be updated accordingly.

messages from a Retrieve SCP equipment :

2.3.1.2.4 Real-World Activity: Remote Archive
2.3.1.2.4.1 Associated Real-World Activity
The operator can associate a DICOM Storage Commitment Provider AE to a Remote
AE. The user can choose to configure Storage Commitment AEs in the below two
modes :
1.
Same Remote AE for Image Storage and Storage Commitment requests:
In this case both images and the Storage Commitment requests are
sent to the same Remote AE.
2.
Separate Remote AEs for Image Storage and Storage Commitment
requests:
In this case, images will be sent to Image Storage SCP AE and the
Storage Commitment requests will be sent separately to Storage
Commitment SCP AE after the image storage operation is complete.
The user selects one or more exams or series from the browser that are to be
archived. The user then clicks on the transfer destination button representing the
36
SIGNA Pioneer PX25
DICOM CONFORMANCE STATEMENT

DIR DOC1613413 REV 2
REMOTE AE. Image level archival (by selecting individual images in a series) is not
supported.
This operation will cause the following actions:
1.
The system retrieves the appropriate DICOM images from its database for
pushing.
2.
The DICOM SERVER AE initiates a DICOM association, negotiates with the
Remote AE an appropriate Abstract and Transfer Syntax.
3.
If the negotiation is successful, the DICOM SERVER AE emits C-STORE
command to send the images to the Remote AE.
4.
When all the images have been successfully sent, the DICOM SERVER AE
emits a N-ACTION request (immediately after the C-STORE request) to ask
for a commitment on images previously sent. Only one N-ACTION request is
sent for all images to be committed. N-ACTION is on different association
than the C-STORE request.

2.3.1.2.4.2.1 SOP Specific DICOM Conformance Statement for the Storage Commitment Push Model SOP Class SCU
(N-ACTION)
The DICOM SERVER AE may request Storage Commitment for Instances of any of
the Composite SOP Classes it supports as an SCU (see Section 2.3.1.2.1.2 ).
The DICOM SERVER AE uses DICOM network storage services to transfer SOP
Instances which are to be committed. If there are any failures in the image transfers,
the Storage commitment request will not be sent. The corresponding job will be
marked as failed and user will be notified of the status of job.
If all the images are successfully transferred, then the commitment (N_ACTION)
request will be sent on a different association with the list of SOP instances.
If the N_ACTION request fails, the job will be marked as failed; otherwise following
sequence of actions will take place:
The SCU waits for N_ACTION response from the provider on the same association for
a configurable amount of time. Default time-out is 600 seconds. If it does not receive
N_ACTION response during this time it closes the association and marks the job as
failed.
If the received N-ACTION Response from the Storage Commitment Provider has a
success status, the DICOM SERVER AE waits 10 seconds for an N-EVENT-REPORT on
37
SIGNA Pioneer PX25
DICOM CONFORMANCE STATEMENT
GE Healthcare
DIR DOC1613413 REV 2
the same association. This time-out is not configurable. If the N-EVENT-REPORT
request is not received in this time, it closes the association and changes the Job
state to ”Waiting” indicating the job is waiting for the response from commitment
provider.
The DICOM SERVER AE can receive a N-EVENT-REPORT from the Storage
Commitment Provider at any time (See section 2.3.1.3.4 - Real-World Activity: Listen
to remote Storage Commitment SCP”).
A new Transaction UID will be created for each retry by the user. The old Transaction
UID is not applicable for these requests.

2.3.1.2.5.2.1 SOP Specific DICOM Conformance Statement for Verification SOP class
The DICOM SERVER AE provides standard conformance. In case of failure the
verification is not retried.
Each C-ECHO operation supports an “Association Timer”. This timer starts when the
association request is sent and stops when the association is established. Default
time-out is 20 seconds and is configurable. If the remote AE does not respond with
the association time-out, the verification operation is considered as failed.
2.3.1.2.6 Real-World Activity: Modality Worklist Query
2.3.1.2.6.1 Associated Real-World Activity
The operator of the system initiates a query for a modality worklist by either opening
the Schedule screen or by opening the Schedule screen and pressing the Refresh
button. The choice of which of these two behaviors occurs is user configurable. The
DICOM SERVER AE will then initiate an association with the remote AE in order to
query for the worklist. The association is closed upon receipt of the final query
response from the remote AE. The association can also be closed by the DICOM
SERVER AE upon receipt of error status from the remote AE or upon expiration of
association timers.
A user can configure a number of parameters, which directly control the worklist
query request. The user can request worklist items that are intended for the scanner
the user is working at, all items that apply to the modality type of the scanner the
user is working at or all worklist items available. These selections and their effects on
worklist query parameters are given below:
This System:
Modality, (0008,0060) - set to MR
Scheduled Station AE Title, (0040,0001) - set to Station name AE title
This Modality:
Modality, (0008,0060) - set to MR
Scheduled Station AE Title, (0040,0001) - zero-length (universal matching)
All Modalites:
Modality, (0008,0060) – set to ”*” (universal matching)
Scheduled Station AE Title, (0040,0001) - zero-length (universal matching)
39
SIGNA Pioneer PX25
DICOM CONFORMANCE STATEMENT
GE Healthcare
DIR DOC1613413 REV 2
Note that the “All Modalities” query above can return worklist items for all
modalities, if such items exist. The system will warn the operator and
disallow selection if a dissimilar modality item is selected from the worklist.
The scheduled dates of procedures of interest can be specified for query by selecting
a specific date range. The date ranges available are Today, Date Range and Any
Days. These selections and their affects on worklist query parameters are given
below:
Today:
Scheduled Procedure Step Start Date, (0040,0002) - set to YYYYMMDD,
where this date is the current date.
Date Range:
Scheduled Procedure Step Start Date, (0040,0002) - set to YYYYMMDDYYYYMMDD, where this date range represents the specified number of days
before today and/or after today. Note that number of days both before and
after can be specified in the same query and that each always includes
today.
Any Day:
Scheduled Procedure Step Start Date, (0040,0002) - zero-length (universal
matching)
Note that selecting All Scanners and All Days with no worklist specific fields specified
results in an unconstrained worklist query. The response to an unconstrained
worklist query can differ between different modality worklist SCP implementations.
Consult the modality worklist SCP manufacturer if difficulties occur when attempting
unconstrained queries.
Worklist specific fields targeted to retrieve a single or very small set of related
entries may also be specified. These fields may be used for a query combined with
scanner and scheduled time to provide a very specific query to the worklist server.
The specific fields are specified below:
Patient Name (0010,0010)
Matching with leading and trailing wildcards is allowed on either Patient Last Name
or Patient First Name (user selectable), zero length matches all values.
Ex: "Doe^John"^^^Ph.D= = (One family name; one given name; no middle name; no
prefix;one suffix; no idegraphic component; no phonetic component)
Patient ID (0010,0020)

2.3.1.2.6.2.1 SOP Specific DICOM Conformance Statement for the Modality Worklist Information Model FIND SOP
Class
If the remote AE does not support the proposed Presentation Context, an
appropriate error is logged and the operator is notified.
This implementation can receive multiple C-FIND results over a single association.
Only one association is opened at a time.
Each C-FIND response received from the remote AE is parsed to verify the
length/type of the items in the response. Upon detecting any error in the response
data, the response is discarded and the next response (if any) is considered.
Each C-FIND SCU operation supports an “Association Timer” and “Operation
Inactivity Timer” using QueryAssociationTimeout and QueryResponseTimeout
configuration parameters. Default values are 30 seconds, 5 minutes respectively.
All errors and failures detected by the DICOM SERVER AE are logged to the service
log files.
In case of ERROR, persisted worklist item(s) got from previous request to the
configured SCP would be shown.
User can cancel the ongoing worklist query by clicking on the Cancel button in the
UI. Upon cancel, the DICOM SERVER AE will send C-FIND-CANCEL request to the
Modality Worklist SCP.

2.3.1.2.8 Real-World Activity: Print
2.3.1.2.8.1 Associated Real-World Activity
The Film Composer allows the user to select printers and it also allows the user to
drag and drop the images (from viewer application) into the film. It also allows the
user to manipulate some print parameters like film format and number of copies to
print. When user presses the "Print" Button, the Film Composer communicates this
request to DICOM SERVER AE, which then tries to establish the association with
requested printer and sends the images for printing.
2.3.1.2.8.1.1 Sequencing of Real-World Activities
1.
User has to select the DICOM printer from the Film Composer Interface.
45
SIGNA Pioneer PX25
DICOM CONFORMANCE STATEMENT
GE Healthcare
DIR DOC1613413 REV 2
2.
The images to be printed shall be dragged and dropped into Film Composer
slots from Viewing Applications either manually or automatically.
3.
In case of manual drag and drop, the user has to press the Print Button to print
the images.
4.
The DICOM SERVER AE will start the Print Session. The Print Session involves
establishing association with the printer followed by the next sequence of
activities:
a.
b.
c.
d.
e.
f.
g.
h.
The DICOM SERVER AE gets the Printer status using N-GET
service. If the Printer returns FAILURE status the print session
will be terminated and the requester will be notified of the
printer status.
The film session is created using N-CREATE service. In case of
error, the print session will be terminated. The attribute values
for the Film session will be specified with the film session
request.
The film box is created using N-CREATE service. The print
session will be terminated if the printer fails to create the film
box. The film box attribute values will be sent in the film box
create request.
The image attributes for the images to be printed in this
session will be set using the N-SET service. If the printer fails
to accommodate the images in the image set, the print session
will be terminated.
The film will be printed using the N-ACTION service. Only film
box printing is supported. In case of error, the print session
will be terminated.
The Film Box instance will be deleted using the N-DELETE
service.
The SCU does not wait for N-EVENT-REPORT from the Printer
after deleting the film box instance. The N-EVENT-REPORT
received when the association was still active is handled, but
the data received will be ignored.
Finally the association will be terminated and if all the above
operations are successful the requester will be notified of the
successful print session. This status just indicates that the
images to be printed have been successfully sent to the printer.

All Required (R) and Unique (U) study, series, and image level keys for the Study-Root
Query/Retrieve information model are supported. Optional (O) keys mentioned in the
following tables are matched if they have a non-zero length value in the C-FIND
request.
DICOM SERVER AE always returns the below listed optional attributes in the C-FIND
response irrespective of being requested or not in the C-FIND request, provided the
optional attributes have a non-zero length value in the database. It does not return
any other optional attributes even if they are requested in the C-FIND request.
DICOM SERVER AE Query SCP can be configured in one of the following two modes :
1.
DICOM Only mode – Only standard DICOM elements will be returned in the
C-FIND response

2.3.1.3.3.2.1 SOP Specific DICOM Conformance Statement for the Study Root Query/Retrieve Information Model MOVE SOP Classes
The DICOM SERVER AE supports Storage Sub-operations for Instances of any of the
Composite SOP Classes it supports as an SCU (see Section 2.3.1.2.1.2).
DICOM SERVER AE supports only Baseline behavior. It does not support RelationalRetrieve. It expects the MOVE SCU to supply single Unique Key value for all levels
above the Query/Retrieve Level specified in the C-MOVE request.
Along with Single Value matching, the DICOM SERVER AE also supports List of UID
matching if the Query/Retrieve level specified in the move request is either STUDY or
SERIES or IMAGE.
The DICOM SERVER AE makes a single association to the Move Destination AET
specified in the C-MOVE request. This association is open for the entire C-MOVE
operation and no new associations are made. The Move Destination AET must
already be configured in the system for the C-MOVE operation to be successful. If the
Move Destination details are not configured in the system, the DICOM SERVER AE
returns A801 (Move Destination Unknown) error status in the C-MOVE response to
the SCU.
The DICOM SERVER AE sends multiple C-STORE requests (one per image) to the Move
Destination AET depending on the number of composites involved in the move
operation. The DICOM SERVER AE sends back C-MOVE PENDING response to the
Move SCU after every Storage sub-operation is complete.
The DICOM SERVER AE monitors an “Operation Inactivity” timer. The connection with
the SCU will be terminated if it is inactive for the configured time-out interval. Default
time-out is 15 seconds and is configurable.
Each C-STORE sub-operation supports an “Association Timer”. This timer starts when
the association request is sent and stops when the association is established.
Default time-out is 15 seconds and is configurable.

while performing the requested Retrieve :

3. MEDIA STORAGE CONFORMANCE STATEMENT
3.1 INTRODUCTION
This section of the DICOM conformance statement specifies the SIGNA Pioneer
system compliance to DICOM requirements for Media Interchange. It details the
DICOM Media Storage Application Profiles and roles that are supported by this
product.
The SIGNA Pioneer system provides capabilities to DICOM Media Interchange on CD
(Compact Disc), DVD (Digital Video Disc –Recordable) and USB Storage device with
VFAT filesystem. The system works with most of the IOD’s like Computed
Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance (MR), Positron Emission Tomography (PET),
and Digital X-Ray images.
3.2 IMPLEMENTATION MODEL
3.2.1 Application Data Flow Diagram
The media intechange application model for the SIGNA Pioneer system is shown in
the following Illustration :
The DICOM Media Interchange Application Entity (AE) handles the DICOM
CREATE/RESTORE functionality for the CD/DVD and USB storage media. The DICOM
Media Interchange AE is commanded by the user to perform DICOM services
operating on the DICOM media through the use of buttons and menu selections on
the graphical user interface of the platform.
The user requests the creation of a DICOM File Set and the writing of this DICOM File
Set on blank Interchange Media by selecting images in the local Browser and
selecting the Interchange Media as being the selected device. Then, the iso9660
image of the CD/DVD to burn will be generated. Once the generation has been done,
it burns the complete set of data on the selected Interchange Media. For USB
Storage media with VFAT filesystem, DICOM File Set is copied to blank Interchange
media.

The DICOM Media Interchange AE has a local storage that may contain various SOP
instances. These may have been obtained by original creation, network (DICOM or
proprietary) or by removable media using other application entities. These instances
are external to this conformance claim and the origin of SOP instances is outside the
scope of this claim.
The Media Creator initializes Media by acting as an FSC to create a new DICOM Fileset on a 700MB CD/4.7GB DVD/USB Storage(no size limit) blank Interchange Media. It
initializes the DICOM File-set and writes all the specified SOP instances onto the
Interchange Media at once. The SOP instances written will be limited to instances
that match the criteria of one of the Application Profiles that is supported. Updating
the media is not supported.
The DICOM Media Interchange AE acts as an FSR when requested to browse the
Interchange Media such that user can select the SOP instances that he wants the
DICOM Media Interchange AE to copy on the local database by selecting appropriate
Study/Series/Image instances.

3.3.1.2 Real-World Activities for the DICOM Media Interchange AE
3.3.1.2.1 Real-World Activity Create (Generate and Write) CD/DVD/USB Storage
The DICOM Media Interchange AE acts as an FSC using the interchange option when
requested to copy SOP Instances from the local database to a CD /DVD /USB
Storage.
The user selects the entries in the local database that he/she wants the DICOM
Media Interchange AE to copy onto Interchange Media.
The graphic interface allows the user to select the entries (studies, series or images)
in the local database to be copied onto to the selected Interchange Media.
The DICOM Media Interchange AE creates one File Set per generated Interchange
Media.
•
A user can only create one copy of CD/DVD/USB image for a drive at a time; any
other attempt of creation will not be allowed until the first one is complete or
cancelled.
•
A user cannot create CD/DVD/USB while restore CD/DVD/USB is in process.
•
A DICOM Media Viewer is provided along with the selected object instances on
the interchange media. This viewer can be loaded on a standard PC running
Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7.
Before writing on the Interchange Media, the DICOM Media Interchange AE checks
for the following condition:
The inserted media is blank and write-able. If the condition is not met, an error is
displayed and the user needs to replace it with a blank media.
Following are the SOP Classes supported by this AE. All SOP Instances use the

10.5 PRINTER SOP CLASS
10.5.1 Printer N-Event-Report Attributes
If an N-EVENT-REPORT DIMSE service is received when the association is active, the
DICOM SERVER AE handles the relevant states, but the data received is ignored.
10.5.2 Printer N-Get Attributes
N-Get request is sent when the user initiates the print activity by clicking on the Print
button. Based on the N-Get response, the DICOM SERVER AE continues to send the
Film Session’s N-CREATE request if status is NORMAL, else pauses the print job and
displays the error message on the Film Composer UI.
This table defines the set of attributes that this product may request using the
Printer N-Get service. It also describes what is the product behavior when receiving
the N-Get response from the Printer SCP.

* When modality worklist is used, the Study ID associated with a Study Instance UID
is not guaranteed to be constant. If multiple exams are created on the scanner by
reusing a single worklist entry, then each use will be assigned a new study ID.
Although all exams will share the same Study Instance UID, each exam will have its
own Study ID. Within the data base browser, each exam will be listed separately by
its study ID (exam number); however, on some PACS systems the exams will be
joined into a single study based solely on the Study Instance UID.

12. SECURITY CONFORMANCE STATEMENT
12.1 INTRODUCTION
This section of the DICOM conformance statement specifies the MR system
compliance to DICOM requirements for Data Security.
The MR system provides capabilities for de-identification and association level
security.
12.2 DE-IDENTIFICATION
The MR system supports the following requirements for de-identification. Deidentification occurs, for example, when an anonymize patient operation is
performed. This de-identification only covers DICOM attributes that contain
protected patient information. The encrypted data capability is not supported, so
once an image has been de-identified no facility is provided to recover the lost
information.
The de-identification specified in this section only applies to GE generated images.
All third party images have only the standard DICOM elements de-identified, all
private tags (non-GE private tags) within these images are dropped.
De-identification supports the following object types:
•
MR Image Objects
De-identification does not support the following object types:
•
Secondary capture images
•
Structured reports
•
Grayscale presentation state objects
This de-identification specification applies when the MR system is configured for full
de-identification. If the system is configured for partial de-identification, some
attributes will remain unchanged.
In this product, Study ID is auto generated by the scanner and will not be
anonymized as it is not unique.
Table 12.2-1 provides the list of attributes and the expected action when deidentifying images

12.3 ASSOCIATION LEVEL SECURITY
The MR system provides association level security for Query Retrieve operations.
The system will only allow remote DICOM servers to pull images if the remote DICOM
server is defined on the MR system. The remote DICOM server’s IP address, AE title,
and Port number must be configured on the MR system for the networking pull to
begin.
Note that this association level security only applies to the retrieve request; query
operations will be accepted from any connected DICOM client.
