Section C.8.21.6.1.1

C.8.21.6.1.1 Image Type and Frame Type

In addition to the requirements specified in Section C.8.21.1.1.1 Image Type and Frame Type, the following Defined Terms are specified for Value 3 of Image Type (0008,0008) and Frame Type (0008,9007):

Table C.8.21.6-1a. Defined Terms of Image Type (0008,0008) Value 3 for Contrast Enhanced, Tomosynthesis and Biopsy

Defined Term

Definition

ACR MQCM Equivalent

Contrast

PRE_CONTRAST

Collected before contrast was administered.

n/a

POST_CONTRAST

Collected during or after contrast was administered.

n/a

Tomosynthesis

TOMO_PROJ

Identifies the image as a digital breast tomosynthesis projection image.

n/a

TOMOSYNTHESIS

Tomographic reconstruction from limited angle projection data.

n/a

Biopsy

TOMO_SCOUT

A localizer image set that may be used to determine positioning coordinates prior to needle positioning.

…SC

PREFIRE

An image set obtained with the biopsy needle in position prior to needle deployment.

…PRF

POSTFIRE

An image set obtained with the biopsy needle in position following needle deployment through the targeted lesion.

…POF

POSTBIOPSY

An image set obtained following tissue acquisition with the X-Ray source in the scout position.

…POB

POSTMARKER

An image set obtained following micromarker placement with the X-Ray source in the scout position.

…POM


Note

There is no need for _MINUS or _PLUS because a single digital breast tomosynthesis acquisition produces a projection and/or reconstruction image set that replaces the _MINUS and _PLUS image pair used in conventional 2D breast biopsy imaging (see Section C.8.11.7.1.4).

If more than one characteristic (biopsy, tomosynthesis, contrast enhanced) applies to an image, Value 3 shall contain the biopsy image type. If biopsy is not involved, Value 3 shall contain the tomosynthesis image type.

Note

For example, Attributes of the Enhanced Contrast/Bolus Module may be used to identify contrast enhanced characteristics of a biopsy and/or tomosynthesis image that is also contrast enhanced.

Value 4 shall be NONE except for applicable contrast enhanced images, mathematically generated 2D images and other tomosynthesis reconstructions. The following Defined Terms are specified for Value 4 of Image Type (0008,0008) and Frame Type (0008,9007). For additional Defined Terms see Section C.8.16.1.4.

Table C.8.21.6-1b. Defined Terms of Image Type (0008,0008) Value 4 for Contrast Enhanced and Tomosynthesis

Defined Term

Definition

Tomosynthesis

GENERATED_2D

Mathematically generated 2D view.

MAXIMUM

Created through Pixel by pixel maximum operation.

MEAN

Created through Pixel by pixel mean operation.

Contrast

ADDITION

Created through Pixel by pixel addition operation.

SUBTRACTION

Created through Pixel by pixel subtraction operation.


If more than one characteristic (contrast enhanced, tomosynthesis) applies to an image, Value 4 shall contain the contrast enhanced image type. If contrast enhanced is not involved, Value 4 shall contain the tomosynthesis image type.

Value 5 shall be present for images acquired using contrast enhanced digital X-Ray imaging of the breast, but may be empty if none of the Defined Terms applies. For non-contrast images Value 5 remains optional and implementation specific.
