I am confuzed abot the slice location (0020, 1041). The explanation (Slice Location Attribute – DICOM Standard Browser) is:
Slice Location (0020,1041) is defined as the relative position of the image plane expressed in mm. This information is relative to an unspecified implementation specific reference point.
What’s the meaning about
an unspecified implamentation specific reference point? Where is this point?
What’s the relationship between
slice location (0020, 1041) and
image position (patient) (0020, 0032))? If the
image position is [x, y, z], is
slice location the z value? In a dicom viewer, the slice location and image position is:
(0020,0032) DS -102.96828174586\-170.6410164833\76.9224891098919 Image Position (Patient) (0020,1041) DS 0 Slice Location
We can see that the
slice location is not the z value of
Any suggestion is appreciated~~~
