Series Act

[Act: templateId 2.16.840.1.113883.10.20.22.4.63]

A Series Act contains the DICOM series information for referenced DICOM composite objects. The series information defines the attributes that are used to group composite instances into distinct logical sets. Each series is associated with exactly one study. Series Act clinical statements are only instantiated in the DICOM Object Catalog section inside a Study Act, and thus do not require a separate templateId; in other sections, the SOP Instance Observation is included directly.

  1. SHALL contain exactly one [1..1] templateId ( CONF:10918, CONF:10919 ) such that it
    1. SHALL contain exactly one [1..1] @root="2.16.840.1.113883.10.20.22.4.63"
  2. SHALL contain exactly one [1..1] @classCode="ACT" Act (CodeSystem: 2.16.840.1.113883.5.6 HL7ActClass) (CONF:9222)
  3. SHALL contain exactly one [1..1] @moodCode="EVN" Event (CodeSystem: 2.16.840.1.113883.5.1001 HL7ActMood) (CONF:9223)
  4. SHALL contain exactly one [1..1] code/@code="113015" (CodeSystem: 1.2.840.10008.2.16.4 DCM) (CONF:9228)
  5. SHOULD contain zero or one [0..1] effectiveTime (CONF:9235)
    • If present, the effectiveTime contains the time the series was started

  6. SHALL contain at least one [1..*] id (CONF:9224)
  7. MAY contain zero or one [0..1] text (CONF:9233)
    • If present, the text element contains the description of the series

  8. SHALL contain at least one [1..*] entryRelationship (CONF:9237, CONF:9238, CONF:15927)
    1. Contains @typeCode="COMP" COMP
    2. Contains exactly one [1..1] SOP Instance Observation (templateId: 2.16.840.1.113883.10.20.6.2.8)
  9. ids SHALL contain exactly one [1..1] @root (CONF:9225)
  10. ids SHALL NOT contain [0..0] @extension (CONF:9226)
  11. code SHALL contain exactly one [1..1] qualifier (CONF:9229)
  12. This qualifier SHALL contain exactly one [1..1] name="121139" Modality (CodeSystem: DCM 1.2.840.10008.2.16.4) (CONF:9230)
  13. This qualifier SHALL contain exactly one [1..1] value with @xsi:type="ANY" (CONF:9231)
  14. SHALL satisfy: The value element code contains a modality code and codeSystem is 1.2.840.10008.2.16.4 (CONF:9232)
