STATUS REPORT OF DICOM WG 12 (ULTRASOUND) DAVID HEANEY (CHAIRMAN), Sep-11-2003 WG 12 Web Site: www.dicomwg12.org STRUCTURED REPORTING The Ultrasound Procedure Report Supplements have the following status: Supplement 26: OB-GYN Ultrasound Procedure Reports has been approved for final text. Supplement 71: Vascular Ultrasound Procedure Reports has been approved for final text. Supplement 72: Adult Echocardiography Procedure Reports is at Letter Ballot stage. Supplement 78: Fetal and Pediatric Echo Procedure Reports, is at draft stage. WG12 is also working on the following Structured Reporting related Change Proposals: CP 377: OB-GYN Vascular Measurements. WG 12 members are participating in the newly reconvened Working Group 8 and are developing our own Ultrasound Patient Clinical History Templates for Supplement 75. SUPPLEMENT 84: ULTRASOUND REGION SCALING CLARIFICATION WG12 has proposed Supplement 84 that clarifies the use and meaning of the Ultrasound Region Scaling Module. The current wording in the Standard is very ambiguous and WG12 feels that this has hampered implementation and inter- operability. This Supplement is now at Public Comment stage. SUPPLEMENT 43: MULTI-DIMENSIONAL ULTRASOUND DATA WG12 is starting to increase emphasis on completion of this Work Item now that our most essential Procedure Report tasks have been addressed. We also plan to incorporate ultrasound imaging specific waveform data into this Supplement rather than as separate IODs/SOP Classes. ULTRASOUND RELATED CHANGE PROPOSALS WG12 has recently proposed Change Proposals dealing with the following issues: CP-392: Addition of Ability to Identify Significant Frames in a Multi-Frame Image. CP-xxx: Addition of Scan Geometry Attributes to US Region Scaling CP-xxx: Addition of Contrast Method and Type to US Image IODs CP-xxx: Pixel Characteristics for Original Lossy Compressed Images NEXT MEETINGS The next WG 12 meeting will be on October 2nd and 3rd in Vancouver, BC.
