Section C.

C. Series Type

Series Type (0054,1000) Value 1 is used to identify the spatial location and temporal nature of the images within a PET Series.

Enumerated Values for Value 1:


a group of images at varying spatial locations at the same time


a group of images at a set of spatial locations (e.g., slices) at varying time slices, with all spatial locations acquired at all time slices


a group of images at the same spatial location, same starting and ending time, but acquired in different time slots of (possibly) different R-R intervals


same as STATIC, except covering multiple transverse fields of view (and therefore acquired at a different time)


  1. Using this definition and the comments in Section C., here are some examples of PET Series and the encoding of Series Type (0054,1000) Value 1.

    • Static acquisition: a group of n transverse images at varying superior<->inferior locations, all acquired between the same starting and ending time. Series Type = STATIC.

    • Dynamic acquisition: a group of n*m transverse images at n superior<->inferior locations, acquired with m different starting and ending times. Series Type = DYNAMIC.

    • Gated acquisition: a group of n*m*p transverse images at n superior<->inferior locations, all acquired between the same starting and ending time, acquired in m different R-R Intervals (as determined by Low R-R Value (0018,1081) and High R-R Value (0018,1082)), and acquired in p time slots of a given R-R Interval (as determined by Trigger Time (0054,1000)). Series Type = GATED.

    • Whole body acquisition: a group of n transverse images at varying superior<->inferior locations covering a significant fraction of the entire body. Series Type = WHOLE BODY.

    • Multiple transverse fields of view: a group of n transverse images at varying superior<->inferior locations. Series Type = WHOLE BODY.

    • Interleaved: group of 2*n transverse images acquired at overlapped axial fields of view (AFOVs) to increase transverse sampling. Series Type = WHOLE BODY.

    • Sagittal (Coronal, Oblique): sagittal (coronal, oblique) re-sliced images derived by reformatting transverse images. The Series Type is STATIC, DYNAMIC, GATED, or WHOLE BODY depending on source Series Type.

    • Arithmetic: images derived by an arithmetic operation on operand images. The Series Type is STATIC, DYNAMIC, GATED, or WHOLE BODY depending on source Series Type.

    • Metabolic: images derived by a metabolic model. The Series Type is STATIC, DYNAMIC, GATED, or WHOLE BODY depending on source Series Type.

  2. Using this definition, here are some images that are not stored in the same PET Series:

    • Two images from the same scan that were reconstructed differently.

    • Emission and transmission images for the same Patient and Study, even if acquired simultaneously (because emission and transmission images have different reconstruction processing).

    • Two images of same patient, one after NH3 injection and one after FDG injection.

    • Two images: an original image created from reconstructed scan data and its derived image based on a metabolic model.

Series Type (0054,1000) Value 2 is used to identify the volumetric meaning of the images within a PET Series.

Enumerated Values for Value 2:


a tomographic image slice


a projection image derived from forward projection through slices of tomographic images, using the algorithm defined in Reprojection Method (0054,1004)
