2.2
Audience
This document is written for the people that need to understand how Aixplorer will integrate
into their healthcare facility. This includes both those responsible for overall imaging network
policy and architecture, as well as integrators who need to have a detailed understanding of
the DICOM features of the product. This document contains some basic DICOM definitions
so that any reader may understand how this product implements DICOM features. However,
integrators are expected to fully understand all the DICOM terminology, how the tables in this
document relate to the product’s functionality, and how that functionality integrates with other
devices that support compatible DICOM features.
2.3
Remarks
The scope of this DICOM Conformance Statement is to facilitate integration between Aixplorer
and other DICOM products. The Conformance Statement should be read and understood in conjunction with the DICOM Standard. DICOM by itself does not guarantee interoperability. The
Conformance Statement does, however, facilitate a first-level comparison for interoperability
between different applications supporting compatible DICOM functionality.
This Conformance Statement is not supposed to replace validation with other DICOM equipment to ensure proper exchange of intended information. In fact, the user should be aware of
the following important issues:
• The comparison of different Conformance Statements is just the first step towards assessing interconnectivity and interoperability between Aixplorer and other DICOM conformant equipment.
• Test procedures should be defined and executed to validate the required level of interoperability with specific compatible DICOM equipment, as established by the healthcare
facility.
• The DICOM standard will evolve to meet the users’ future requirements. SuperSonic
Imagine is actively involved in developing the standard further and therefore reserves the
right to make changes to its products or to discontinue its delivery.
Aixplorer has participated in an industry-wide testing program sponsored by Integrating
the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE). The IHE Integration Statement for Aixplorer, together
with the IHE Technical Framework, may facilitate the process of validation testing. Aixplorer’s Integration statement can be freely downloaded from the following URL: http://www.

Definitions, Terms and Abbreviations
Definitions, terms and abbreviations used in this document are defined within the different parts
of the DICOM standard.
2.4.1
Definitions
Informal definitions are provided for the following terms used in this Conformance Statement.
The DICOM Standard is the authoritative source for formal definitions 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).
Command: A request to operate on information across a network.
Command Element: An encoding of a parameter of a command which conveys this parameter’s value.
Command Stream: The result of encoding a set of DICOM Command Elements using the DICOM encoding scheme.
Conformance Statement: A formal statement that describes a specific product implementation that uses the DICOM Standard. It specifies the Service Classes, Information Objects, and
Communication Protocols supported by the implementation.
Context Group: A set of coded concepts defined by a Mapping Resource forming a set appropriate to use in a particular context. Data Dictionary: A registry of DICOM Data Elements
which assigns a unique tag, a name, value characteristics, and semantics to each Data Element.
Data Element: A unit of information as defined by a single entry in the Data Dictionary.
Data Set: Exchanged information consisting of a structured set of Attributes. The value of each
Attribute in a Data Set is expressed as a Data Element.
Data Stream: The result of encoding a Data Set using the DICOM encoding scheme (Data
Element Numbers and representations as specified by the Data Dictionary).

Information Object: An abstraction of a real information entity (e.g., CT Image, Structured
Report, etc.) which is acted upon by one or more DICOM Commands.
Information Object Class: A formal description of an Information Object which includes a
description of its purpose and the Attributes it possesses. It does not include values for these
Attributes.
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.
Information Object Instance: A representation of an occurrence of an real-world entity, which
includes values for the Attributes of the Information Object Class to which the entity belongs.
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).
Message: A data unit of the Message Exchange Protocol exchanged between two cooperating
DICOM Applications. A Message is composed of a Command Stream followed by an optional
Data Stream.
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.
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: A structured description of a service which is supported by cooperating DICOM
Applications using specific DICOM Commands acting on a specific class of Information Object.
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;
DICOM 3.0 Conformance Statement
RD.DD.029 (RevA)

Aixplorer V9
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.
Unified Code for Units of Measure (UCUM): a standard for all units of measurement.
Unique Identifier (UID): A globally unique “dotted decimal” string that identifies a specific
object; 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.
2.4.2
Basics of DICOM communication
This section describes terminology used in this Conformance Statement for the non-specialist.
The key terms used in the Conformance Statement are highlighted in italics below. This section is not a substitute for training about DICOM, and it makes many simplifications about the
meanings of DICOM terms.
Two Application Entities (devices) that want to communicate with each other over a network
using DICOM protocol must first agree on several things during an initial network “handshake”.
One of the two devices must initiate an Association (a connection to the other device), and ask if
specific services, information, and encoding can be supported by the other device (Negotiation).
DICOM specifies a number of network services and types of Information Objects, each of which
is called an Abstract Syntax for the Negotiation. DICOM also specifies a variety of methods for
encoding data, denoted Transfer Syntaxes. The Negotiation allows the initiating Application
Entity to propose combinations of Abstract Syntax and Transfer Syntax to be used on the Association; these combinations are called Presentation Contexts. The receiving Application Entity
accepts the Presentation Contexts it supports.
For each Presentation Context, the Association Negotiation also allows the devices to agree on
DICOM 3.0 Conformance Statement
RD.DD.029 (RevA)

Aixplorer V9
Roles – which one is the Service Class User (SCU - client) and which is the Service Class
Provider (SCP - server). Normally the device initiating the connection is the SCU, i.e., the
client system calls the server, but not always.
The Association Negotiation finally enables exchange of maximum network packet (PDU) size,
security information, and network service options (called Extended Negotiation information).
The Application Entities, having negotiated the Association parameters, may now commence
exchanging data. Common data exchanges include queries for Worklists and lists of stored images, transfer of image objects and analyses (structured reports), and sending images to film
printers. Each exchangeable unit of data is formatted by the sender in accordance with the appropriate Information Object Definition, and sent using the negotiated Transfer Syntax. There
is a Default Transfer Syntax that all systems must accept, but it may not be the most efficient
for some use cases. Each transfer is explicitly acknowledged by the receiver with a Response
Status indicating success, failure, or that query or retrieve operations are still in process.
Two Application Entities may also communicate with each other by exchanging media (such as
a CD-R). Since there is no Association Negotiation possible, they both use aMedia Application
Profile that specifies “pre-negotiated” exchange media format, Abstract Syntax, and Transfer
Syntax.

Implementation Model
The Implementation model consists of three sections: the Application Data Flow Diagram,
specifying the relationship between the Application Entities and the “external world” or RealWorld activities, a functional description of each Application Entity, and the sequencing constraints among them.
3.1.1
Application Data flow
Aixplorer is implemented in six Application entities. Figure 3.1.1 illustrates the Aixplorer Application Entities (AE), (in the boxes) and relationships between user invoked activities (in the
circles at the left of the AE) and the DICOM services (depicted in the circles at the right of the
AE). Exam data are sent to all selected Store and Print destinations simultaneously in accordance with system configuration of “Send After Acquisition” or at “End of Exam” or Manual.
Worklist queries are executed either manually or automatically. Modality Performed Procedure
Step (MPPS) messages are send at exam opening and closing. Query/Retrieve requests are executed either manually or automatically and selected instance are pushed to the local storage and
added to the local database.
3.1.1.1
Storage
Aixplorer sends single and multi-frame ultrasound images, PDF reports, and Structured Reports
to one or several remote AEs. Acquisition of images is associated with the local real-world activities “Save Clip” for multi-frame images and “Save Image” for single frame images. Sending
or exporting of images depends on user configuration, either “Send After Acquisition” or “End
of Exam” (when “End of Exam” button is pressed), or Manual. PDF reports creation are associated with the real world activities “Report”. Sending or exporting of reports also depends

on user configuration, either “End of Exam” (when “End of Exam” button is pressed), or Manual. SR are generated automatically at end of exam if at least one image is acquired with the
OB/Gyn or Vascular preset . Sending or exporting of SR depends on user configuration.
For either “Send After Acquisition” or “End of Exam”, or manual mode, each remote AE can
be individually configured to accept or reject single frame images, multi-frames images, PDF
reports or Structured Reports.
Please refer to the user’s guide for configuration and use of DICOM Storage.
3.1.1.2
Worklist
Aixplorer queries Worklist information from remote AE. It is associated with the local realworld activities “Refresh” or automatic refresh (at a user configured refresh rate). When either
the “Refresh” or automatic refresh are performed, Aixplorer queries a remote AE for Worklist
items that provides the set of Worklist items matching the query request.
Automatic refresh can be configured to be executed at configurable intervals of time or a key
moments (Smart Mode) like “End Of Exams”. Aixplorer supports both IHE’s worklist queries:
the Patient Based Query and the Broad Query.
Please refer to the user’s guide for configuration and use of DICOM Worklist.
3.1.1.3
Modality Performed Procedure Step
Aixplorer sends Modality Performed Procedure Step message to remote AE. Messages are send
automatically at exam opening and closing. Exam is said to be opened when patient information have been filled either automatically by selecting a patient in the Worklist or manually and
a first image have been acquired or a first measurement has been performed. In this case, the
message is send with the “In-Progress” Status.
Exam is closed with the status “completed” by either pressing the “End of Exam” button located on the control panel or by pressing “new patient” on the touch screen. A third way to
close an exam is to press the “Cancel Exam” button on the touch screen. A “discontinued”
message status is then sent. The discontinuation reason can be choosen by the Performing
Physician/Sonographer.
Please refer to the user’s guide for configuration and use of DICOM Modality Performed Procedure Step.
3.1.1.4
Verification
Aixplorer initiates a connection with a remote AE, posts a Verification request and closes the
connection. It also responds to incoming Verification requests (for service use).

3.1.1.5
Print Images
Aixplorer sends single images to one or several remote AEs (Printer or Print Server). Acquisition of images is associated with the local real-world activities “Save Image”. Printing of images
depends on user configuration, either “Send After Acquisition” or “End of Exam” (when “End
of Exam” button is pressed), or Manual.
For either “Send After Acquisition” or “End of Exam”, or manual mode, each remote AE can
be individually configured to send fully rendered pages already containing the user’s selected
formatting choices.
Please refer to the user’s guide for configuration and use of DICOM Printing.
3.1.1.6
Storage commitment
Aixplorer sends single and multi-frame images, PDF reports, and Structured Reports to one
or several remote AEs. Acquisition of images is associated with the local real-world activities
“Save Clip” for multi-frame images and “Save Image” for single frame images. Sending or
exporting of images depends on user configuration, either “Send After Acquisition” or “End of
Exam” (when “End of Exam” button is pressed), or Manual. PDF reports creation are associated
with the real world activities “Report”. Sending or exporting of reports also depends on user
configuration, either “End of Exam” (when “End of Exam” button is pressed), or Manual. SR
are generated automatically at end of exam if at least one image is acquired with the OB/Gyn
preset. Sending or exporting of SR depends on user configuration.
For either “Send After Acquisition”, “End of Exam”, or manual mode, each remote AE can be
individually configured to accept or reject single frame images, multi-frame images, and PDF
report.
The Storage AE will request Storage Commitment and if a commitment is successfully obtained
will record this information in the local database and then will freely manage its own internal
resources according configuration (automatic deletion of exam upon commit reception). Commit requests may or may not be sent to the storage AE and depending on the configuration they
may be send in the same or a separate association.
Please refer to the user’s guide for configuration and use of DICOM Storage Commitment.
3.1.1.7
Query/Retrieve
Aixplorer queries remote AE’s for lists of studies and series matching user’s request. If a
selection of series is requested for retrieval, then an association is established to a remote
query/retrieve AE and a move order is sent in destination to Aixplorer’s local storage SCP.
Please refer to the user’s guide for configuration and use of DICOM Query/Retrieve.

3.1.1.8
Storage SCP
Storage SCP receives incoming images. This images may be unsolicited instances send by
any remote Application Entities or may be instances requested thanks to the Query/Retrieve
interface.
Please refer to the user’s guide for configuration and use of DICOM Query/Retrieve.
3.1.2
Functional Definitions of Aixplorer Application Entities
As an acquisition modality, Aixplorer mainly act as a SCU and connects to other DICOM
applications. However, if Query/Retrieve option is enabled, then Aixplorer accept incoming
storage request as a store SCP. Moreover, conceptually the network services may be modeled
as separate AEs, but in fact MWL SCU, MPPS SCU, image storage SCU, storage commitment
SCU and print SCU share a single (configurable) AE Title.
3.1.2.1
Verification Service as both SCU and SCP
Aixplorer can initiate associations with Presentation Contexts for the Verification service SOP
class. It will send a C-ECHO request to another DICOM application and wait for a response
to complete the verification. Moreover Aixplorer will answer to any C-ECHO request coming
from other DICOM application.
3.1.2.2
Basic Modality Worklist Management Service as SCU
Aixplorer uses the Basic Worklist Management service to get required information to build its
DICOM datasets.
It establishes one association with the remote Worklist SCP, performs a Find request, waits
for responses, and then releases the association. During receiving, the Worklist response items
are counted and the query processing is canceled if the configurable limit of items is reached.
The results will be displayed in a separate list, which will be cleared with the next successful
Worklist update.
3.1.2.3
Modality Performed Procedure Step Management Service as SCU
Aixplorer establishes one association with the remote MPPS SCP, send a N-Set or N-Create
message, waits for responses, and then releases the association.
3.1.2.4
Image Storage Service as SCU
The existence of a send-job queue entry with associated network destination will activate the
Storage AE. An association request is sent to the destination AE and upon successful negotiation
of a Presentation Context the image transfer is started. If the association cannot be opened, the
related send-job is set to an error state with an error message. Aixplorer will try two other times
DICOM 3.0 Conformance Statement
RD.DD.029 (RevA)
13 of 149
Aixplorer V9
to initiate another association with 20 seconds between each retry. If send-job is still failing,
then the job is automatically paused and a notification icon is displayed in the notification panel.
The number of retry and the idle period between each retry are both configurable in the set up.
3.1.2.5
Storage Commitment Service as SCU
Aixplorer uses the Storage Commitment service to check that a commitment is taken by the
server receiving the stored images. After a Storage operation, Aixplorer may establish one association or use an already opened one with the remote Storage Commitment SCP, performs a
Store Commit request, and then releases the association. The answer is waited for another association started by the Storage Commitment SCP. An automatic deletion mechanism, triggered
off upon reception of commitment message, can be activated.
3.1.2.6
Basic Print Service as SCU
The existence of a print-job in the print queue will activate the Hardcopy AE. An association is
established with the printer. If the printer is operating normally, the film sheets described within
the print-job will be printed. If the printer is not operating normally, Aixplorer will try to send
again the print-job two other times to initiate another association with 20 seconds between each
retry. If print-job is still failing then the job is automatically paused and a notification icon is
displayed in the notification panel.
The number of retry and the idle period between each retry are both configurable in the set up.
3.1.2.7
Query/Retrieve Service as SCU
Aixplorer uses the Query/Retrieve service as a SCU to query a remote AE. Query/Retrieve
service can be decomposed in two basic tasks:
• first FIND requests or queries are executed on a remote AE to perform a match of all
the keys specified in the request against the information it possesses. All queries are performed recursively from the study through the series levels until all matching series have
been listed. The query keys are patient’s name, patient id, accession number, study date,
modality. Aixplorer performs a Find request, waits for responses, and then releases the
association. During receiving, the response items are counted and the query processing is
canceled if the configurable limit of items is reached.
• then, eventually, a MOVE order is sent to the remote AE to move a list of series on
Aixplorer local storage SCP.
There are two different ways to start Query requests. If the automatic query settings is activated
then queries are automatically performed at exam creation. Queries can also be performed
manually when the “Q/R” hard button on the control panel is pushed. If the automatic retrieve
settings is activated or when a list of series is manually selected, a move request is sent.

Aixplorer V9
3.1.2.8
Storage SCP
If Query/retrieve option is enabled, Aixplorer use the Storage Service Class to accept association from any SCU. Storage Service waits in the background for unsolicited or requested instances sent by remote AE. It will accept any associations with Presentation Contexts for SOP
Classes of the Storage Service Class or Verification service class, and will store the received
instances to the local database where they may subsequently be listed and viewed through the
Query/Retrieve user interface.
3.1.3
Sequencing of Real-World Activities
On Aixplorer, images can be pushed on a remote Print, Store, Store commit server in three
ways : “after acquisition”, “on End of Exam”, and “manually”. It is possible to configure
individually each server. Moreover, at any time, during an exam or not, it is possible to start a
query or retrieve a list of series.
3.1.3.1
Sequencing of Real-World Activities - Send After Acquisition
Under normal scheduled workflow conditions the sequencing constraints illustrated in Figure
3.1.2 apply:
1. Query Worklist
2. Receive Worklist
3. Start acquisition and create MPPS with “IN-PROGRESS” status
4. Acquire and Store image
5. Request a Storage Commitment (if any Store Commit is configured)
6. Print acquired images on film (if film sheet is full)
7. Send MPPS with “DISCONTINUED” status (if “Cancel Exam” is pressed)
8. or Send MPPS with “COMPLETED” status (if “End of Exam” is pressed)
9. Print remaining images on film
10. Store PDF and Structured Reports
11. Wait and accept commitment response(s)
Other workflow situations (e.g. unscheduled procedure) will have other sequencing constraints.
Printing could be omitted completely if no printer is connected or hardcopies are not required.
PDF reports and Structured Reports can be omitted.

Association Initiation Policy
3.2.1.3.1 Description and Sequencing of Activity Send Instances
As described in section 3.1.1.1, a user can manually select instances from Review Mode and
request them to be sent to multiple destinations. Each request is forwarded to the “DICOM
Store” job queue and processed individually if the “group exportation” option is active (default). Otherwise a job per instance will be created. When the “Send After Acquisition” or
“Send on End of Exam” option are active, each acquired instances will be forwarded to the
“DICOM Store” job queue for a pre-configured list of target destinations. It can be configured
which type of instances (still images, clips, PDF reports, Structured Reports) will be accepted
by each destination.
The Storage AE is invoked by the job list interface that is responsible for processing network
archival tasks. The job consists of data describing the instances marked for storage and the
destination. An internal daemon process triggered by a job for a specific Storage destination
initiates a C-STORE request to store instances. If the process successfully establishes an Association to a remote Application Entity, it will transfer each instance one after another via the
open Association. Status of the transfer is reported through the job list interface. Only one
Storage job will be active at a time. If the C-STORE Response from the remote Application
contains a status other than Success or Warning, the Association is aborted and the related Job
is switched to a failed state. It will be restarted automatically later.
The Storage AE attempts to initiate a new Association in order to issue a C-STORE request.
If the job contains multiple instances then multiple C-STORE requests will be issued over the
DICOM 3.0 Conformance Statement
RD.DD.029 (RevA)

Aixplorer V9
same Association. If the Remote AE is configured as an archive device, after all instances have
been successfully sent, a Storage Commitment request is issued. This Storage Commitment
request will be sent over a separate association. Aixplorer will open a separate association for
this, send a N-ACTION request to the server and wait for the N-ACTION response on this association. Aixplorer then releases this association, without expecting any N-EVENT-REPORT
message. Aixplorer expects N-EVENT-REPORTS messages to be sent over a separate association initiated by the Storage Commitment SCP server.
A possible sequence of interactions between Storage AE and an Image Manager is illustrated
in Figure 3.2.1 :
1. The Storage AE opens an association with the Image Manager,
2. Acquired image(s), PDF reports, SR are transmitted to the Image Manager using a CSTORE request and the Image Manager replies with a C-STORE response (status success),
3. The Storage AE closes the association with the Image Manager,
4. The Storage AE opens an association with the Image Manager,
5. A Store Commitment is requested,
6. The Storage AE closes the association with the Image Manager.
3.2.1.3.2 Proposed Presentation Contexts
Each time an association is initiated, the Association Initiator proposes a number of Presentation Contexts to be used on that association. The Presentation Contexts proposed by Aixplorer
for a C-Store service are defined in Table 3.7.

• If an image is encoded, its corresponding native transfer syntax is also proposed, and
will be preferred by the SCU if both compressed and uncompressed transfer syntaxes are
accepted by the SCP,
• If the SCP does not accept encoded transfer syntaxes, Aixplorer will uncompress the
related images on the fly.
The DICOM images created by Aixplorer conform to the DICOM IOD definitions (Standard
extended IODs). They may contain some additional private elements (see Annex B).
The DICOM Encapsulated PDF instances created by Aixplorer conform to the DICOM Encapsulated PDF IOD (Standard extended IODs). They may contain some additional private
elements (see Annex B).
The Structured Report instances created by Aixplorer conform to the Comprehensive Structured
Report IOD (Standard extended IODs). They may contain some additional private elements (see
Annex B).
Structure of created instances is described in Annex A.1.
The behavior of Storage AE when encountering status codes in a C-STORE response is summarized in the Table 3.9. A failed Job will be automatically restarted. The delay between resending
failed jobs and the number of retries is configurable. If a job keeps failing and reach the number
of retries then it will be reschedule at the end of the queue.
The behavior of Storage AE during communication failure is summarized in the Table 3.10.
3.2.1.3.4
SOP Specific Conformance for Storage Commitment SOP Class
3.2.1.3.4.1 Storage Commitment Operations (N-ACTION)
The Storage AE will request storage commitment for encapsulated PDF, US single and multiframe images and Structured Reports if the Remote AE is configured as an archive device with
storage commitment facilities and a presentation context for the Storage Commitment Push
Model has been accepted. The Storage AE will consider that encapsulated PDF, or US single
and multi frame images or Structured Reports are not committed until a N-EVENT-REPORT is
received for the Transaction UID. The number of committed files per exam is available in “Patient Directory”’s window. The Storage AE does not send the optional Storage Media FileSet ID
& UID attributes or the Referenced Study Component Sequence Attribute in the N-ACTION.
The behavior of Storage AE when encountering status codes in a N-ACTION response is summarized in Table 3.11.
The behavior of Storage AE during communication failure is summarized in Table 3.12.

all their instances marked as “Committed” are candidates
for “Automatic Deletion after Commit” from the local
database. Studies will not be deleted if they are marked
with a lock flag.
The Referenced SOP Instances under Referenced SOP Sequence (0008,1199) are treated in the same way as in
the success case (Event Type 1). The Referenced SOP
Instances under Failed SOP Sequence (0008,1198) are
marked within the database as “Not Committed”. The Failure Reasons are logged and the job failure is reported to the
user via the job control application. A send job that failed
storage commitment will not be automatically restarted but
can be restarted by user interaction.

An invalid Event Type ID was supplied in the
N-EVENT-REPORT request.
An internal error occurred during processing of
the N-EVENT-REPORT. A short description of
the error will be returned in Error Comment
(0000,0902).
One or more SOP Instance UIDs with the Referenced SOP Sequence (0008,1199) or Failed
SOP Sequence (0008,1198) was not included
in the Storage Commitment Request associated
with this Transaction UID. The unrecognized
SOP Instance UIDs will be returned within the

3.2.2.3.1.1 Description and Sequencing of Activity
The request for a Worklist Update is initiated by user interaction, i.e. pressing the buttons
“Update Worklist” or automatically at specific time intervals, configurable by the user. All
Modality Worklist operations are performed synchronously and Aixplorer always requests all
items. The Broad queries are performed using any combination (7) of the following attributes:
Scheduled Station AE Title (actual AET used), Scheduled Procedure Step Start Date (any date
or From: today, yesterday, last two days , last seven days To: today, tomorrow, next 2 days, next
7 days), Modality (US, MG, GR, MR, CT, MN, DX, XA, RF) are configurable by a Service

Engineer.
The Patient Based query are performed using any combination (15) of the following attributes:
Patient’s Name, Patient ID, Accession Number, Requested Procedure ID. Some optional attributes can also be specified: exam date, patient’s birth date, and gender.(Note that matching
on those fields is not always supported by Work SCP).
To protect the system from overflow, Aixplorer can be configured to limit the number of processed Worklist responses to a configurable maximum.
For each basic query of a remote application entity for a Modality Worklist list of items, Aixplorer will initiate an association, send a C-FIND request command, wait in blocking mode for
all C-FIND responses, and then release the association. A possible sequence of interactions
between the Workflow AE and a Departmental Scheduler (e.g. a device such as a RIS or HIS
which supports the Modality Worklist SOP Class as a SCP) is illustrated in Figure 3.2.3 :
1. The Workflow AE opens an association with the Departmental Scheduler;
2. The Workflow AE sends a C-FIND request to the Departmental Scheduler containing the
Worklist Query attributes;
3. The Departmental Scheduler returns a C-FIND response containing the requested attributes of the first matching Worklist Item;
4. The Departmental Scheduler returns another C-FIND response containing the requested
attributes of the second matching Worklist Item;
5. The Departmental Scheduler returns another C-FIND response with status Success indicating that no further matching; Worklist Items exist. This example assumes that only 2
Worklist items match the Worklist Query;
6. The Workflow AE closes the association with the Departmental Scheduler;
7. The user selects a Worklist Item from the Worklist and prepares to acquire new images.
3.2.2.3.1.2 Proposed Presentation Contexts
Each time an association is initiated, the Association Initiator proposes a number of Presentation Contexts to be used on that association. The Presentation Contexts proposed by Aixplorer
for a C-Find service are defined in Table 3.22.

3.2.2.3.1.3 Specific Conformance for Worklist Management SOP Class
The behavior of Aixplorer when encountering status codes in a Modality Worklist C-FIND
response is summarized in Table 3.23. If any other SCP response status than “Success” or
“Pending” is received by Aixplorer, a notification will appear on the user interface.
The behavior of Aixplorer during communication failure is summarized in Table 3.24.
Acquired images will always1 use the Study Instance UID specified for the Scheduled Procedure Step (if available). If an acquisition is unscheduled, a Study Instance UID will be generated locally. Table 3.25 below provides a description of Aixplorer Worklist Request Identifier
and specifies the attributes that are copied into the images. Unexpected attributes returned in
a C-FIND response are ignored. Requested return attributes not supported by the SCP are set
to have no value. Non-matching responses returned by the SCP due to unsupported optional
matching keys are ignored. No attempt is made to filter out possible duplicate entries.

Activity - Acquire images
3.2.2.3.2.1 Description and Sequencing of Activities
After Patient registration, Aixplorer is awaiting the first image acquisition. The trigger to
create a MPPS SOP Instance is derived from this event. An Association to the configured MPPS
SCP system is established immediately and the related MPPS SOP Instance will be created. The
final state of the MPPS is automatically set to:
• “COMPLETED” when user close the exam by either pressing the “End of Exam” button
on the control panel or by pressing “new patient” on the touch screen.
• “DISCONTINUED” when user press the “Cancel Exam” button on the touch screen. In
the “Discontinued” case, the discontinuation reason is automatically set to “Doctor cancel
procedure”.
Aixplorer only supports a 0-to-1 relationship between Scheduled and Performed Procedure
Steps. Aixplorer initiates an Association to issue both :
• a N-CREATE request according to the CREATE Modality Performed Procedure Step
SOP Instance operation;
• a N-SET request to update the contents and state of the MPPS according to the SET
Modality Performed Procedure Step Information operation.
A possible sequence of interactions between the Workflow AE and a Departmental Scheduler
(e.g. a device such as a RIS or HIS which supports the MPPS SOP Class as a SCP) is illustrated
in Figure 3.2.4:

3.2.3.3.1.1 Description and Sequencing of Activity
Aixplorer will initiate a separate association with a Print SCP for each print session. After
an association has been accepted and is established, Aixplorer will send a print job to the Print
Server. Each print job includes the following steps (see Figure 3.2.5):
• Aixplorer first performs a N-GET request to get Printer information;
• Aixplorer requests the server to a N-CREATE a film session SOP instance.
For each film to be printed:
• A N-CREATE request is performed to get a Film Box SOP instance;
• N-SET requests are made to change some film box instance attributes and to fill image
boxes with image pixel data;
• If no print collation is needed, a N-ACTION is requested for the Film Box instance;
• This causes the film to be printed;
• If print collation is requested, a N-ACTION is performed on the film session.

If the DICOM Print software is unable to open an association with the selected destination
AE, an error message displays in Aixplorer. No message is displayed when successful printing
operation responses are received. After an association has been accepted and is established,
Aixplorer will send a print job to the Print Server. Each print job includes the following steps:
• Aixplorer first performs a N-GET request to get Printer information;
• Aixplorer requests the server to a N-CREATE a film session SOP instance;
• For each film to be printed:
– A N-CREATE request is performed to get a Film Box SOP instance;
– N-SET requests are made to change some film box instance attributes and to fill
image boxes with image pixel data;
– If no print collation is needed, a N-ACTION is requested for the Film Box instance.
This causes the film to be printed;
– If print collation is requested, a N-ACTION is performed on the film session.

Activity – Store instances on local storage
3.2.5.4.1.1 Description and Sequencing of Activities
As instances are received, they are copied to the local file system and a record inserted into
the local database. If the received instance is a duplicate of a previously received instance, the
old file and database record will be overwritten with the new one. Aixplorer’s storage area is
limited, thus oldest instances will be automatically deleted.
A possible sequence of interactions between Storage SCP AE and a Remote Storage SCU
AE is illustrated in Figure 3.2.7:
1. A Remote Storage SCU AE opens an association with the Aixplorer’s Storage SCP AE,
2. Acquired image(s) is transmitted to the Storage SCP AE using a C-STORE request and
the Storage SCP AE replies with a C-STORE response (status success),
3. Remote Storage SCU AE closes the association with the Aixplorer’s Storage SCP AE.
3.2.5.4.1.2 Accepted Presentation Contexts
Each time an association is initiated, both SCU and SCP proposes a number of Presentation
Contexts to be used on that association. The Presentation Contexts accepted by Store SCP AE:
• for a C-Store service are defined in Table 3.51.
• for a C-Echo service are defined in Table 3.52.

SOP Specific Conformance to Storage SCP SOP Classes
Storage SCP will always accept any Presentation Context for the supported SOP Classes with

for the same Abstract Syntax if the Transfer Syntax is supported, whether or not it is the same
as another Presentation Context.
3.2.5.4.1.3.3.
Transfer Syntax Selection Policies
The default behavior of the Storage SCP is to prefer transfer syntaxes having an explicit encoding over the default implicit transfer syntax and since Storage SCP is running on little-endian
hardware it will prefer Little Endian Explicit to Big Endian Explicit transfer syntax.

SOP Specific Conformance
SOP Specific Conformance to C-FIND SOP Classes
FIND-SCU provides standard conformance to the supported C-FIND SOP Classes. Only a
single information model, Study Root, is supported. All queries are initiated at the highest level
of the information model (the STUDY level), and then for each response received, recursively
repeated at the next lower level(the SERIES level), in order to elucidate the “tree” of series
available on the remote AE (from which the user may subsequently request a retrieval at Series
level).
A CANCEL request will be sent if the number of series receive is greated than a configurable
limit.
Table 3.60 show the requested identifier at the Study and Series Information level of the Study
Root Query/Retrieve Information Model. The types of Matching supported by the Find SCU is
the following :
DICOM 3.0 Conformance Statement
RD.DD.029 (RevA)
69 of 149
Aixplorer V9
• “S” indicates the identifier attribute uses Single Value Matching,
• “R” indicates Range Matching,
• “*” indicates wildcard matching,
• “U” indicates Universal Matching,
• “L” indicates that UID lists are sent,
• “NONE” indicates that no matching is supported, but that values for this Element are
requested to be returned (i.e. universal matching),
• “UNIQUE” indicates that this is the Unique Key for that query level, in which case Universal Matching or Single Value Matching is used depending on the query level.
3.2.6.3.1.3.2.
Presentation Context Acceptance Criterion
The Find SCU does not accept associations.
3.2.6.3.1.3.3.

Aixplorer V9
The Move SCU will behave as described in Table 3.63 in response to the status returned in the
C-MOVE response command message(s).
3.2.6.3.2.3.5.
Sub-operation dependent behavior
Since the C-MOVE operation is dependent on completion of C-STORE sub-operations that are
occurring on a separate association, the question of failure of operations on the other association(s) must be considered.
The Move SCU completely ignores whatever activities are taking place in relation to the Storage
SCP AE that is receiving the retrieved instances. Once the C-MOVE has been initiated it runs to
completion (or failure) as described in the C-MOVE response command message(s). There is
no attempt by Move SCU to confirm that instances have actually been successfully received or
locally stored. Whether or not completely or partially successfully retrievals are made available
in the local database to the user is purely dependent on the success or failure of the C-STORE
sub-operations, not on any explicit action by Move SCU.
Whether or not the remote AE attempts to retry any failed C-STORE sub-operations is beyond
the control of Move SCU.
If the association on which the C-MOVE was issued is aborted for any reason, whether or not
the C- STORE sub-operations continue is dependent on the remote AE; the local Storage SCP
will continue to accept associations and storage operations regardless.
3.2.6.4

The Query/Retrieve AE does not accepts Associations.

The Offline-Media Application Entity exports images, PDF and Structured reports to a CD-R,
DVD, USB Storage medium. It is associated with the local real-world activities “Export to
CD-R, DVD”, “Export to USB”. These real-world activities are performed upon user request
for selected patients, studies or instances (images, clips, PDF reports, Structured reports). The
application data flow diagram for media storage is illustrated on figure 4.1.1.
4.1.2
Functional Definitions of Application Entities
4.1.2.1
Functional Definition of Media Creation Application Entity
Activation of the “Export to CD-R, DVD”, “Export to USB” buttons will pass the currently selected patients, studies or instances to the media creation service. The SOP Instances associated
with the selection will be collected into one job. The contents of each export job will be written
to a single CD-R or DVD media.
4.1.3
Sequencing of Real-Word Activities
At least one image must exist and be selected before the media creation service can be invoked.
The operator can insert a new media at any time before or after invocation of the service. It will
wait indefinitely for a media to be inserted before starting to write to the media device. If no
media is available the media creation job can be canceled from the job queue.

Real-World Activities
4.2.1.2.1 Activity – Export to CD-R DVD
The Offline-Media Application Entity acts as an FSC when requested to export SOP Instances from the local database to a CD-R or DVD medium. The medium characteristics are
automatically detected by the system and shown to user. After user selection of patients, studies
and images from the review list window, an exportation job is created by pressing the “CD-R
/DVD” button. The contents of the export job will be written together with a corresponding
DICOMDIR to a single-session CDR/DVD. Writing in multi-session mode is not supported.
The user can cancel an export job in the job queue.
Please refer to the user’s guide for configuration and use of DICOM Storage.
4.2.1.2.1.1 Media Storage Application Profiles
The Offline-Media Application Entity support the Application Profile described in Table 4.3.
Application Profile supported
STD-GEN-CD
STD-GEN-DVD-JPEG
Table 4.3: Media Storage Application Profiles for CDR/DVD
4.2.1.2.1.1.1.
Options
The Offline-Media Application Entity supports the SOP Classes and Transfer Syntaxes listed in
the Table 4.4. Please note that when a Storage Application Profile is selected, the most adapted
Transfer Syntaxes is selected for each IOD. At any time Transfer syntaxes can be forced to
any value listed in Table 4.4. In such case, the created DICOM instances may not follow the
Application profile. As a result, the DICOM instances will be present on the DICOM media,
but won’t be referenced in the DICOMDIR.
4.2.1.2.2 Activity – Export to USB
The Offline-Media Application Entity acts as an FSC when requested to export SOP Instances
from the local database to USB medium. The medium characteristics are automatically detected
by the system and shown to user. After user selection of patients, studies and images from the
review list window, an exportation job is created by pressing the “USB” button. The contents
of the export job will be written together with a corresponding DICOMDIR to the following
filesystem hierarchy: at the root of the medium a folder named “Aixplorer” is created, in this
folder will be created for each job a second folder whose name depends on date and time
exportation job was created. Please note that this implementation does not follow the DICOM

Security
Aixplorer does not support any specific security measures. It is assumed that Aixplorer is used
within a secured environment. It is assumed that a secured environment includes at a minimum:
1. Firewall or router protections to ensure that only approved external hosts have network
access to Aixplorer.
2. Firewall or router protections to ensure that Aixplorer only has network access to approved external hosts and services.
3. Any communication with external hosts and services outside the locally secured environment use appropriate secure network channels (e.g. such as a Virtual Private Network
(VPN)).
Other network security procedures such as automated intrusion detection may be appropriate in
some environments. Additional security features may be established by the local security policy
and are beyond the scope of this conformance statement.

A.2
Used Fields in received IOD
No SOP Class specific fields are required.
The local database, remote query and directory browsers make use of the conventional identification attributes to distinguish patients, studies, series and instances. In particular, if two
patients have the same value for Patient ID, they will be treated as the same in the browser and
the local database. The usage of attributes received by Modality Worklist is described in section
3.2.2.3.1.3.
A.3
Attribute Mapping
A.3.1
Worklist-Instances-MPPS IOD mapping
The relationships between attributes received via Modality Worklist, stored in acquired images
and communicated via MPPS are summarized in Table A.31. The format and conventions used
are the same as the corresponding table in DICOM Part 4, Annex M.6 [DICOM].

C.1
Context Groups
The Workflow AE is capable of supporting arbitrary coding schemes for Procedure and Protocol Codes. The contents of Requested Procedure Code Sequence (0032,1064) and Scheduled
Protocol Code Sequence (0040,0008) supplied in Worklist Items will be mapped to Image IOD
and MPPS attributes as described in Table A.32.
As shown in Table C.1, the contents of Performed Procedure Step Discontinuation Reason
Code Sequence (0040,0281) for a discontinued MPPS will be filled with a code selected by
the user from a fixed list corresponding to Context Group 9300. Besides, since Aixplorer has
the abilty to export structured report, a subset of the context groups described in TID 5000
OB-GYN ultrasound procedure report may also be used.
