Compensator Thickness Data Attribute

Tag(300A,00EC)
TypeConditionally Required (1C)
KeywordCompensatorThicknessData
Value Multiplicity1-n
Value RepresentationDecimal String (DS)

A data stream of the pixel samples that comprise the compensator, expressed as thicknesses (in mm). The order of pixels encoded is left to right, top to bottom, i.e., the upper left pixel is encoded first followed by the remainder of the first row, followed by the first pixel of the 2nd row, then the remainder of the 2nd row and so on) when viewed from the radiation source. Required if Material ID (300A,00E1) is non-zero length. May be present if Material ID (300A,00E1) is zero length. See Section C.8.8.14.9 and Section C.8.8.14.10 and Section C.8.8.14.11, “Block and Compensator Precedence for Dosimetric Calculations”.

Note

Compensator Thickness Data may not be properly encoded if Explicit VR Transfer Syntax is used and the VL of this Attribute exceeds 65534 bytes.

Section C.8.8.14.9

C.8.8.14.9 Compensator Thickness Data and Source to Compensator Distance

The values stored in Compensator Thickness Data (300A,00EC) and Source to Compensator Distance (300A,02E2) shall be parallel to the radiation beam axis if Compensator Divergence (300A,02E0) equals ABSENT, or divergent according to the beam geometrical divergence if Compensator Divergence (300A,02E0) equals PRESENT. If Compensator Divergence (300A,02E0) is not present, then the parallel or divergent nature of the thicknesses is as if ABSENT was specified for Compensator Divergence (300A,02E0).

Section C.8.8.14.10

C.8.8.14.10 Compensator Transmission and Thickness Data Direction

The direction of the rows and columns in Compensator Transmission Data (300A,00EB) and Compensator Thickness Data (300A,00EC) is defined as follows: The direction of rows goes along the positive Xb direction and the direction of the columns does along the negative Yb direction of the IEC X-BEAM LIMITING DEVICE coordinate system. Other interpretations shall be documented in an implementation's conformance statement.

Section C.8.8.14.11, “Block and Compensator Precedence for Dosimetric Calculations”

C.8.8.14.11 Block and Compensator Precedence for Dosimetric Calculations

If Block Thickness (300A,0100) and Block Transmission (300A,0102) are present, Block Transmission shall have precedence for dosimetric calculations. If Compensator Transmission Data (300A,00EB) and Compensator Thickness Data (300A,00EC) are present, Compensator Transmission Data shall have precedence for dosimetric calculations.
