The Service Object Pair Class

The SOPclass

  • Like “modality” but not!  Don’t mistake this
  • CT modality can produce a CT SOPclass object and a PET SOPClass object; MR produces MR and US
  • The SOPclass is a definition of what attributes describes a object
  • –MR  UID=“1.2.840.10008.”
  • –CT  UID=“1.2.840.10008.”
  • –US  UID=“1.2.840.10008.”
  • –eMR  UID=“1.2.840.10008.”
  • –eCT  UID=“1.2.840.10008.”
  • These are just a small sampling
