B DICOM XML Schemas

This appendix lists the DICOM XML schemas used by the methods of the ORDDicom object type. When Oracle Multimedia DICOM is installed, these schemas are registered as global XML schemas in Oracle Database with Oracle XML DB (see Section 9.2.1).

Note:

The schemas in this appendix might not match the code shipped with the Oracle installation. For the final versions of these schemas, use the files provided with the installation.

The latest versions of these schemas are available as files in the ord/xml/xsd directory under <ORACLE_HOME>. To locate and examine the schemas, query the dictionary view ALL_XML_SCHEMAS (see Section 9.2.2). In addition, read the documentation embedded within each schema file for more information.

The DICOM XML schemas are associated with one or more DICOM configuration documents. See Appendix A for a list of configuration documents.

This appendix includes these DICOM XML schemas:

          The anonymity action type has an attribute action, 
          which defines the action used to make an
          attribute anonymous.
          If the value of the action attribute is "none", no
          action will be taken.
          If the value of the action attribute is "remove", then 
          the element does not require a value.(The default value
          of the action attribute is "remove").
          The selected candidate attribute will be removed from 
          the DICOM object to make it anonymous.
          If the value of the action attribute is "replace", then 
          the string value encoded in the attribute will be cast 
          into the corresponding type of the attribute and the
          new value replaces the original.
          If the value of the action attribute is "empty" , then the
          attribute will be changed into zero length attribute (for future
          use only).
          If the value of the action attribute is "encrypt", then the string 
          value encoded in the action attribute will be replaced with an
          encrypted value (for future use only).

    Introduction
      This schema defines the DICOM constraint document.
      
      A DICOM constraint document defines rules 
      to check the conformance of a DICOM content with respect to 
      the DICOM standard and other organization-wide guidelines.  
      This XML schema document defines the XML schema constraining 
      constraint documents.
      
      A constraint document defines one or more constraint rules.  
      A constraint rule is the unit of invocation for conformance checking.
      At run time, a user may invoke a PL/SQL
      or Java function to check the conformance of a DICOM content
      with respect to a particular rule. Each invocable rule
      is defined as a GLOBAL_RULE, which can reference other global 
      rules internally.  
      A constraint rule can be decomposed into individual predicates.  
      A predicate can be a logical statement, a relational statement 
      comparing values, a function call evaluation that returns a
      Boolean type, or a reference to other predicate definitions.   
      Predicate definitions are recursive. A predicate can be a logical
      statement, which includes the logical OR of two other predicates. 
      Each predicate can be a relational predicate. For example:
      (patientName=="Joe Smith"  AND patientSex=="M")
      After being translated into a predicate, the preceding example becomes: 
      <PREDICATE>
        <DESCRIPTION>An example to find an object that has
              (patientName="Joe Smith" AND patientSex=="M")
         </DESCRIPTION>
        <LOGICAL operator="and">
          <PREDICATE>
            <RELATIONAL operator="eq">
              <DICOM_ATTRIBUTE>00100010</DICOM_ATTRIBUTE>
              <XML_VALUE>
                <dt:PERSON_NAME>
                  <dt:NAME>
                    <dt:FAMILY>Smith</dt:FAMILY>
                    <dt:GIVEN>Joe</dt:GIVEN>
                  </dt:NAME>
                </dt:PERSON_NAME>
              </XML_VALUE>
            </RELATIONAL>
          </PREDICATE>
          <PREDICATE>
            <RELATIONAL operator="eq">
              <DICOM_ATTRIBUTE>00100040</DICOM_ATTRIBUTE>
              <XML_VALUE>
                <dt:CODE_STRING>M</dt:CODE_STRING>
              </XML_VALUE>
            </RELATIONAL>
          </PREDICATE>
        </LOGICAL>
      </PREDICATE>
 
      Constraint macros can be used to simplify the definition of 
      complex constraint rules. Constraint macros follow the same predicate 
      definition grammar as constraint rules. The operands in 
      constraint macros can be variables rather than fixed values, as they are 
      in constraint rules. The variables in a macro are substituted when the 
      macro is invoked. For example, you can define a macro to compare
      patient names ( patientName == $NAME ). When this macro is invoked,
      the parameter NAME is assigned the value "Joe Smith" and the macro is
      transformed into the predicate:( patientName == "Joe Smith").
      As another example, you can define a macro to check if a DICOM attribute
      is a code sequence attribute. A code sequence attribute must contain the
      mandatory child attributes, code value and code scheme. This macro
      checks whether the specified code sequence attribute contains these
      mandatory child attributes. 
 
 
      <GLOBAL_MACRO name="CSMacro">
        <DESCRIPTION>
          A subset of Code Sequence Macro defined in DICOM standard, 
          PS3.3-2007, Table 8.8-1
        </DESCRIPTION>
        <PARAMETER_DECLARATION>
          CodeAttr
        </PARAMETER_DECLARATION>
        <PREDICATE>
          <DESCRIPTION>Code value must not be empty</DESCRIPTION>
          <BOOLEAN_FUNC operator="notEmpty">
            <DICOM_ATTRIBUTE>${CodeAttr}.00080100
            </DICOM_ATTRIBUTE>
          </BOOLEAN_FUNC>
        </PREDICATE>
        <PREDICATE>
          <DESCRIPTION>Code scheme designator must not be empty
          </DESCRIPTION>
          <BOOLEAN_FUNC operator="notEmpty">
            <DICOM_ATTRIBUTE>${CodeAttr}.00080102
            </DICOM_ATTRIBUTE>
          </BOOLEAN_FUNC>
        </PREDICATE>
        <!-- other predicates follow -->
      </GLOBAL_MACRO>
       
      You can separate a constraint definition into multiple files.  
      Each file defines one or more constraint rules or macros.  
      A file can import the macros and constraint rules that are 
      defined in a difference file. You must specify the set of 
      external rules or macros before referencing them in a file.
      EXTERNAL_RULE_INCLUDE and EXTERNAL_MACRO_INCLUDE
      statements serve this purpose.

        A type to specify an action for a predicate value.
        The "when" attribute specifies the predicate value.
        The "action" attribute specifies the type of action.
        When the action type is "log", "warning", or "error",
        the string value of this attribute is returned
        in a log file or as part of warning or error message.

              that belongs to one of the following value representation

            when a predicate invokes relational operator. For example, 
            (patientAge > 005M) is a valid predicate. But 
            (patientAge > "Joe Smith") is not a valid predicate, because 
            the operand "Joe Smith" cannot be cast into an instance 
            of the patient age attribute.

          The current values for this operator

          It returns true if an attribute matching the tag exists in 
          a DICOM content and has a non-null value (e.g. a DICOM type 1

          "true" takes no operand and it always returns true.

    Introduction
      This schema defines the DICOM standard data types that are used 
      by all other DICOM XML schema definitions.
      
    Naming conventions:
    All DICOM value representation (VR) types are named with a 
    2-character string, such as "AE" and "CS".
    All DICOM attribute type definitions are named as VR_ATTR_T, 
    where VR is replaced by the attribute's 2-character VR.
    
    Note that each item of a sequence type (SQ) is of DATASET_T type.
    The DATASET_T type can recursively contain more attributes.
    The element name of an attribute is its value representation (VR)
    name. Oracle uses value representation names defined
    by the DICOM standard part 5. The element
    name to VR mappings are:
      APPLICATION_ENTITY     ---   AE
      AGE_STRING     ---  AS
      ATTRIBUTE_TAG     ---  AT
      CODE_STRING     ---  CS
      DATE     ---  DA
      DECIMAL_STRING     ---  DS
      FLOAT_SINGLE     ---  FL
      FLOAT_DOUBLE     ---  FD
      INTEGER_STRING     ---  IS
      LONG_STRING     ---  LO
      LONG_TEXT     ---  LT
      OTHER_BYTE     ---  OB
      OTHER_FLOAT     ---  OF
      OTHER_WORD     ---  OW
      OTHER_WORD     ---  OWB
      PERSON_NAME     ---  PN
      SHORT_STRING     ---  SH
      SIGNED_LONG     ---  SL
      SEQUENCE     ---  SQ
      SIGNED_SHORT     ---  SS
      SHORT_TEXT     ---  ST
      TIME     ---  TM
      UNIQUE_ID     ---  UI
      UNSIGNED_LONG     ---  UL
      UNKNOWN     ---  UN
      UNSIGNED_SHORT     ---  US
      SIGNED_SHORT       ---  USS
      UNLIMITED_TEXT     ---  UT
      EXTENDED_TYPE     ---  EXT
      EXCEPTION_TYPE     ---  EXP
      The VR types "OWB', "EXT", "EXP" and "USS" are 
      Oracle-defined extensions.
      Please refer to the individual data type documentation for 
      more explanation.

      <xs:documentation>DICOM Value representation Age String. 
        The age string can be expressed either in DICOM string 
        format, or in number of days. When metadata is extracted 
        from a DICOM object, both elements will be populated.
        XML documents can represent age by either format.  
        Age in number of days is converted into an age string when 
        XML metadata is encoded into a DICOM object.
        To convert from age string into the number of days:  
          365 * number_of_year or 31 * number_of_month.  
        Because AGE_STRING is mandatory, it is not necessary to 
        convert from the number of days into an age string.

        indicates its encoding type. The value of the "type" attribute

        Attribute group type (ATTR_GRP_T) is used by all DICOM attribute 
        definitions. It defines XML attributes that are used by all DICOM
        attribute types.
        The "tag" attribute defines DICOM attributes in little-endian encoding.
        The "definer" attribute specifies the organization that has
        created the attribute. By default, all DICOM standard 
        attributes have the definer name "DICOM".
        The "name" attribute specifies the canonical attribute name
        as defined by the data dictionary. For example, in 
        an XML metadata schema definition, you can choose a tag
        PATIENT_DATE_OF_BIRTH or "DOB" for DICOM attribute 
        (0010,0030), but its name attribute should match that of the
        DICOM standard: "Patient's Birth Date".
        The "number" attribute is an optional attribute to indicate the
        ordering of a multivalued attributes.  Number counts from 1 up.
        The "truncated" attribute takes a Boolean value. If it is true,
        it indicates that the original length of the DICOM attribute
        exceeds the maximum length allowed for this XML value;therefore,
        it is truncated in XML. When this attribute is true, 
        xsi:nill="true" for this attribute.
        Optionally, the "rawValue" attribute can be used to store 
        values that do not conform to the DICOM standard.   The 
        associated attribute "byteOrderLE" specifies the byte order
        of the byte stream for the "rawValue" attribute.
        "offset" and "length" are Oracle-reserved attributes.

        definer name "DICOM" and the UID "1.2.840.10008.1".  
        All DICOM standard attributes are given the definer name "DICOM".
        Users can introduce private attributes of their own and encode them
        in an XML document. These private attributes are identified
        with the definer's name and UID. Oracle recommends that all DICOM 
        private attributes be associated with a UID-qualified name.

        The DICOM value locator type identifies a particular
        DICOM attribute by "xxxxxxxx(definer)", where 
        "xxxxxxxx" is the attribute tag and "definer" is the
        attribute definer, which can be the DICOM standard
        (DICOM) or other private sources. 
        A locator path can also identify a particular 
        descendent of a container type attribute (SQ).
        The n-th item of a sequence attribute is denoted by
        "xxxxxxxxx(definer)[n]".    
        By default, the definer suffix "(definer)" can be 
        omitted if the attribute is a DICOM standard tag.  
        The index "n" of an item address "[n]" must be a 
        positive integer. The item address suffix can be 
        omitted if the item it pointed to is the first item 
        of a sequence. 
        For example, 00080096.00401101.00080100 is the code 
        that identifies the first referring physician. The 
        above value locator is equivalent to:

        VALUE_LOCATOR_MACRO_T is similar to the value locator

        the locator string.
        So, the macro locator string can be:
          ${TAG}(DICOM)[2].00080100
        This string indicates the code value (0008,0100) of the second

        The macro parameter TAG can be replaced by a

        DICOM value representation types.
        In the DICOM standard, VR for certain attributes 
        is defined as "other word or byte", "US or SS", or
        "See Note". Oracle has extended the list of VR types and 
        introduced OWB (for "other word or byte"), 
        USS (for "US or SS"), and 
        EXP (where VR definition does not apply).
        When an attribute of USS type is encoded into XML, it is
        automatically encoded as a signed short type.
        When an attribute of OWB type is encoded into XML, it is
        automatically encoded into other word type.
        An example of an attribute with VR type of EXP is
        the sequence item (FFFE, E000).
        For compatibility with future DICOM releases, if a new 
        DICOM VR is introduced by the DICOM standard, 
        users can mark such attributes as type "EXT??", 
        where "??" should be replaced by the new VR name.

                  attribute.)
                  The optional attribute "notEmpty" specifies 
                  whether the attribute must have a value in 
                  the original DICOM content (type 1 in DICOM terms).
                  Depending on the run-time preferences, if the 
                  above "occurs' or "notEmpty" condition is not 
                  met, an error may be thrown at run-time.
                  The optional attribute "writeTag" specifies whether to
                  add the attribute "tag" when writing the element.
                  The tag attribute is of type "dt:AT". The value of this
                  attribute is the DICOM attribute tag in little-endian 
                  encoding.
                  The optional attribute "writeDefiner" specifies whether
                  to add the attribute "definer" when writing the element.
                  The definer attribute is of type "dt:LO". The value of
                  this attribute is the same as the definer attribute of
                  ATTRIBUTE_TAG element of the mapping document.
                  The optional attribute "writeName" specifies whether
                  to add the attribute "name" when writing the element.
                  The name attribute is of type "dt:SHORT_STRING_T".
                  The value of this element is the attribute name
                  defined by the data dictionary.
                  The optional attribute "writeRawValue" specifies whether
                  to add the attribute "rawValue" when writing the element.
                  The raw value attribute is of type "xs:hexBinary".
                  This attribute only occurs when there is a parsing error
                  for this attribute and no XML value can be extracted for
                  the element. The value of this attribute is the 
                  hexadecimal dump of the original byte stream.

    Introduction
      This schema defines the data types that are used 
      by DICOM metadata schemas.
      
    Naming conventions:
    All DICOM value representation (VR) types are named with a 
    2-character string, such as "AE" and "CS".
    All DICOM attribute type definitions are named as VR_ATTR_T, 
    where VR is replaced by the attribute's 2-character VR.
    
    Note that each item of a sequence type (SQ) is of DATASET_T type.
    The DATASET_T type can recursively contain more attributes.
    The element name of an attribute is its value representation (VR)
    name. Oracle uses value representation names defined
    by the DICOM standard part 5. The element
    name to VR mappings are:
      APPLICATION_ENTITY     ---   AE
      AGE_STRING     ---  AS
      ATTRIBUTE_TAG     ---  AT
      CODE_STRING     ---  CS
      DATE     ---  DA
      DECIMAL_STRING     ---  DS
      FLOAT_SINGLE     ---  FL
      FLOAT_DOUBLE     ---  FD
      INTEGER_STRING     ---  IS
      LONG_STRING     ---  LO
      LONG_TEXT     ---  LT
      OTHER_BYTE     ---  OB
      OTHER_FLOAT     ---  OF
      OTHER_WORD     ---  OW
      OTHER_WORD     ---  OWB
      PERSON_NAME     ---  PN
      SHORT_STRING     ---  SH
      SIGNED_LONG     ---  SL
      SEQUENCE     ---  SQ
      SIGNED_SHORT     ---  SS
      SHORT_TEXT     ---  ST
      TIME     ---  TM
      UNIQUE_ID     ---  UI
      UNSIGNED_LONG     ---  UL
      UNKNOWN     ---  UN
      UNSIGNED_SHORT     ---  US
      SIGNED_SHORT       ---  USS
      UNLIMITED_TEXT     ---  UT
      EXTENDED_TYPE     ---  EXT
      EXCEPTION_TYPE     ---  EXP
      The VR types "OWB', "EXT", "EXP" and "USS" are 
      Oracle-defined extensions.
      Please refer to the individual data type documentation for 
      more explanation.

      <xs:documentation>DICOM Value representation Age String. 
        The age string can be expressed either in DICOM string 
        format, or in number of days. When metadata is extracted 
        from a DICOM object, both elements will be populated.
        XML documents can represent age by either format.  
        Age in number of days is converted into an age string when 
        XML metadata is encoded into a DICOM object.
        To convert from age string into the number of days:  
          365 * number_of_year or 31 * number_of_month.  
        Because AGE_STRING is mandatory, it is not necessary to 
        convert from the number of days into an age string.

        Attribute value type (ATTR_VALUE_T) maps to a single DICOM
        attribute value. Each type of attribute has a name that reflects
        the DICOM value representation of the attribute.
        Each attribute is strongly typed, and its type matches its DICOM
        VR. Certain DICOM configuration files, such as constraint 
        documents, use ATTR_VALUE_T.

        Attribute group type (ATTR_GRP_T) is used by all DICOM attribute 
        definitions. It defines XML attributes that are used by all DICOM
        attribute types.
        The "tag" attribute defines DICOM attributes in little-endian encoding.
        The "definer" attribute specifies the organization that has
        created the attribute. By default, all DICOM standard 
        attributes have the definer name "DICOM".
        The "name" attribute specifies the canonical attribute name
        as defined by the data dictionary. For example, in 
        an XML metadata schema definition, you can choose a tag
        PATIENT_DATE_OF_BIRTH or "DOB" for DICOM attribute 
        (0010,0030), but its name attribute should match that of the
        DICOM standard: "Patient's Birth Date".
        The "number" attribute is an optional attribute to indicate the
        ordering of a multivalued attributes.  Number counts from 1 up.
        The "truncated" attribute takes a Boolean value. If it is true,
        it indicates that the original length of the DICOM attribute
        exceeds the maximum length allowed for this XML value;therefore,
        it is truncated in XML. When this attribute is true, 
        xsi:nill="true" for this attribute.
        Optionally, the "rawValue" attribute can be used to store 
        values that do not conform to the DICOM standard. The 
        associated attribute "byteOrderLE" specifies the byte order
        of the byte stream for the "rawValue" attribute.
        "offset" and "length" are Oracle-reserved attributes.

        attribute definer, which can be the DICOM standard

        The n-th item of a sequence attribute is denoted by
        "xxxxxxxxx(definer)[n]".

        DICOM value representation types.
        In the DICOM standard, VR for certain attributes 
        is defined as "other word or byte", "US or SS", or
        "See Note". Oracle has extended the list of VR types and 
        introduced OWB (for "other word or byte"), 
        USS (for "US or SS"), and 
        EXP (where VR definition does not apply).
        When an attribute of USS type is encoded into XML, it is
        automatically encoded as a signed short type.
        When an attribute of OWB type is encoded into XML, it is
        automatically encoded into other word type.
        An example of an attribute with VR type of EXP is
        the sequence item (FFFE, E000).
        For compatibility with future DICOM releases, if a new 
        DICOM VR is introduced by the DICOM standard, 
        users can mark such attributes as type "EXT??", 
        where "??" should be replaced by the new VR name.

        PREFERENCE_DEF+
          PARAMETER
          DESCRIPTION
          VALUE
        The allowed values for the PARAMETER element of a 
        PREFERENCE_DEF entry and its corresponding 
        VALUE element are as follows:
        
        PARAMETER: XML_SKIP_ATTR
        VALUE: an integer type (default 512,  128~ 32767)
        DESCRIPTION: When encoding a DICOM attribute into XML, skip 
               attributes whose (child) XML element sizes (in bytes) are 
               larger than XML_SKIP_ATTR.
               If an attribute is of simple type, this limit applies to the
               whole attribute.
               If the attribute type is SQ, this limit applies to its child 
               items.
               For example, if an attribute is of type SQ and it contains  
               child items of type OB, the limit applies to 
               each child instance of type OB. 
               The smallest value allowed for this parameter is 128.
        
        PARAMETER: AVG_ATTR_NUM
        VALUE: an integer type (default 200, 20~2000)
        DESCRIPTION: The average number of root-level attributes per 
        DICOM object. This is a hint to the DICOM implementation.
        Finding the optimal value for a database helps improve storage 
        efficiency and performance. Too large a value may lead to wasted
        memory, and too small a value may lead to poor performance. An
        ideal value is one where most (suggested 95%) DICOM images
        have less than $VALUE number of attributes.
        The smallest value allowed for this parameter is 20.
        The largest number allowed for this parameter is 
        the total number of not retired standard attributes defined.
        
        PARAMETER: CONFORMANCE_LEVEL
        VALUE: enum { leastConform, ignoreException(default), mostConform}
        DESCRIPTION: 
        The option "leastConform" means that all functions try to 
        maximize the processing of a DICOM object and ignore
        any errors and exceptions.
        "ignoreException" means that all functions ignore the
        types of exceptions given in the parameter "IGNORED_EXP_LIST".
        The default set of ignored exceptions includes: MISSING_ATTR, 
        INVALID_LENGTH, MISSING_MAGIC, MISSING_HEADER, INVALID_VR, 
        INVALID_VM, and PARSE_ERR.
        "mostConform" means that all functions throw an exception
        if a DICOM object contains nonconformant content. This does
        not include backward compatibility cases allowed by 
        the DICOM standard.
        Note: By choosing an option other than "mostConform",
        you risk accepting invalid DICOM objects, possibly getting
        incorrect results. In this case, Oracle recommends setting the
        LOGGING_LEVEL parameter to "warning" or a more detailed level, 
        and then examining the log file for possible errors.
        
        PARAMETER: IGNORED_EXP_LIST
        VALUE: EmptySpace-separated exception names from the 
        following list:
                {MISSING_MAGIC, MISSING_HEADER, MISSING_ATTR,
                FAULTY_VALUE, INVALID_LENGTH, 
                INVALID_VM, INVALID_VR, UNSUPPORT_VALUE,
                UNDEFINED_VALUE, NOT_AN_IMAGE, PARSE_ERR}
                
        Default: {MISSING_ATTR INVALID_LENGTH MISSING_MAGIC
                 MISSING_HEADER INVALID_VR INVALID_VM PARSE_ERR}.
        DESCRIPTION: This parameter is only effective when the value of
        the CONFORMANCE_LEVEL parameter is "ignoreException". If
        this is the case, the exceptions in the ignore exception list are
        ignored at run time. However, if the LOGGING_LEVEL parameter
        is set to "warning" or a more detailed level, the exception is 
        logged. The program continues and skips the part 
        of the DICOM object that has triggered an exception.
        These exceptions are defined as follows:
        MISSING_MAGIC: a DICOM object does not contain the file 
            magic number "DICM".
        MISSING_HEADER: a DICOM object does not have the file
            meta header (not conformant to the DICOM standard part 10).
        MISSING_ATTR: a DICOM object does not have the mandatory
            attributes (type 1) required by the DICOM standard.
        FAULTY_VALUE: a DICOM object has attribute values 
            that lead to parsing errors.
        INVALID_LENGTH: a DICOM object contains a length value that 
          is not consistent with the DICOM encoding rules or a length 
          that is not permitted by the DICOM data dictionary.
        INVALID_VM: an attribute of a DICOM object has an invalid Value 
            Multiplicity value (not consistent with the dictionary definition).
        INVALID_VR: an attribute of a DICOM object has an invalid Value
            Representation value, which can either conflict with the data
            dictionary or has not been defined by the data dictionary.
        UNSUPPORTED_VALUE: a DICOM object contains attribute
            values that are outside of the supported range; 
            for example, an unsupported pixel representation value.
        UNDEFINED_VALUE: a DICOM object contains attribute
            values that are not defined by the data model; for example,
            an undefined transfer syntax UID, an undefined SOP
            class UID, and so on.
        NOT_AN_IMAGE: When an image content processing function
            is invoked on a DICOM object, if the object's SOP class UID is
            defined but its classification is not "storageClass", or its
            content type is not "image", an exception is thrown. It may
            mean that the UID definition document is not up-to-date. An 
            administrator can update the document to define the
            SOP class UID as a "storageClass" of "image" type.
        PARSE_ERR: When a DICOM object contains invalid data, a parse exception
           is thrown. This exception is ignored, and the parsing process
           continues.  
        
        PARAMETER: OUTPUT_RAW_VALUE
        VALUE: an integer value (default to 0, no output) (-1 ~ 32767)
        DESCRIPTION: What to output in an XML metadata document
        when the parsing of a DICOM object fails. The base64 encoding 
        of the attribute's byte value can be returned in the rawValue 
        attribute of a DICOM XML element. The VALUE element specifies
        the maximal length allowed for the rawValue attribute. 
        If $VALUE == -1, (not recommended), the entire attribute up to 32k
        is saved in the rawValue attribute in base64 encoding.
        If $VALUE == 0, an empty string is saved in the rawValue 
        attribute (recommended for production systems).
        If $VALUE == N > 0, only the first N bytes of the attribute are
        saved in the rawValue attribute.
        A nonzero value for this parameter is useful for debugging 
        purposes. For a production system, do NOT pick a value
        larger than 64. The value -1 should never be used outside of
        a development environment.
        
        PARAMETER: LOGGING_LEVEL
        VALUE: enum {debug, conformance, warning(default), error, none }
        DESCRIPTION:   The logging level, if ordered by the level of 
        detail from the most to the least is: "debug", "conformance", 
        "warning", "error", and "none".
         "debug" means extensive logging of all steps; it should 
        only be used for debugging purposes. 
         "conformance" means to log all nonstandard conformance 
        problems that are discovered. In general, nonconformance is very 
        common for a DICOM object repository containing DICOM 
        objects from different sources, for example, a hospital or an imaging 
        center. This logging level may lead to large log files for 
        most scenarios, and lower performance. 
         "warning" means to log all recoverable messages that require 
        operator attention. For example, if a user invokes an 
        image processing function on a DICOM object and 
        Oracle does not recognize this DICOM object as an image, 
        a warning message is logged stating that this DICOM object 
        is not defined as an image. The processing of the image 
        content may continue if the CONFORMANCE_LEVEL
        parameter is set to ignore "NOT_AN_IMAGE" exception. 
        "error" means to log only irrecoverable messages. 
        "none" means that logging is disabled. 
        Note: Do not use the "debug" option for a deployed system. 
        It adds significant overhead and slows down all 
        DICOM related functions.
        
        PARAMETER: VALIDATE_METADATA
        VALUE: Boolean{true, false(default)}
        DESCRIPTION: The value of this parameter determines whether to 
        validate the XML documents used in the DICOM functions and 
        procedures. If the value of this parameter is false, the XML 
        documents are not validated. If the value is set to true, the XML 
        documents are validated against a specific XML schema that is 
        registered with Oracle XML DB.
        
        All XML documents used in the DICOM functions and procedures, 
        except those that are generated by the method extractMetadata( ), 
        are validated against the Oracle default DICOM metadata schema. 
        The XML documents generated by the method extractMetadata( ) 
        are validated against the XML schema whose namespace is defined in 
        the specified mapping document.
        
        PARAMETER: EXP_IF_NULL_ATTR_IN_CONSTRAINT
        VALUE: Boolean{true(default), false}
        DESCRIPTION: A DICOM object may not contain certain attributes
        that are used in a constraint predicate. The object may
        contain an attribute, but its value is empty. Both cases
        result to a null value attribute. So a constraint
        predicate involving this attribute has a null 
        parameter value such as (null== MY_VALUE). 
        If this preference parameter is set to true,
        an exception is thrown if the first occurrence of a 
        a null-value attribute is not guarded by the "notEmpty" 
        Boolean function. If this parameter is set to false, 
        no exception is thrown and the predicate evaluates to 
        false. To avoid confusion, it is always better to guard an 
        attribute with "notEmpty" Boolean functions before using
        the attribute value in a predicate.
        
        PARAMETER: MAX_RECURSION_DEPTH
        VALUE: an integer type (default 16, 1 ~ 32767)
        DESCRIPTION: This parameter restricts the number of levels of 
        recursions when evaluating a recursive constraint on a DICOM
        object. If the recursion level exceeds this number, an exception
        is thrown. 
        
        PARAMETER: MANDATE_ATTR_TAGS_IN_STL 
        VALUE: Boolean{false(default), true}
        DESCRIPTION: This parameter is used to enforce that all tags 
        used by the constraint and mapping documents must be listed in the
        STORED_TAG_LIST(STL) document. This rule is not enforced by default.
        If this preference parameter is set to true, the rule is enforced. 
        If an existing STL document does not satisfy this rule,
        the preference value cannot be set to true until the
        STL document is deleted. 
        
        PARAMETER: SQ_WRITE_LEN
        VALUE: boolean{true(default), false}
        DESCRIPTION: This parameter determines how the DICOM
        sequence (SQ) types are encoded by the DICOM function writeMetadata().
        If the value of this parameter is true, the SQ types are encoded
        with explicit length and without item or sequence delimitors.
        This is the default behavior and allows DICOM viewers to skip
        the sequence attributes easily.
        If the value of this parameter is false, the SQ types are encoded
        with variable (or undefined) length and terminated with
        sequence delimitors. This allows backward compatibility with some
        older DICOM viewers and Dicom applications as they only support
        undefined length for SQ types.
 
        PARAMETER: SPECIFIC_CHARACTER_SET
        VALUE: enum {ASCII(default), ISO_IR 100, ISO_IR 101, ISO_IR 109, 
                     ISO_IR 110, ISO_IR 144, ISO_IR 127, ISO_IR 126,
                     ISO_IR 138, ISO_IR 148, ISO_IR 13, ISO_IR 166,
                     ISO_IR 192, GB18030}
        DESCRIPTION: This parameter determines how data elements with value
        representations of SH (Short String), LO (Long String), ST (Short Text)
        LT (Long Text), PN (Person Name) or UT (Unlimited Text) are decoded
        when the Specific Character Set (0008,0005) Attribute is missing.
        The DICOM standard states that the default character set 
        (ISO-IR 6, or ASCII) shall be used for decoding when the Specific
        Character Set (0008,0005) Attribute is not specified. This parameter
        allows an application to specify a different character set to 
        use in these cases.
 
        PARAMETER: BINARY_SKIP_INVALID_ATTR
        VALUE: boolean{false(default), true}
        DESCRIPTION: It is possible that a DICOM object contains one or more
        attribute values that do not conform to the DICOM specification. In the 
        event that such an attribute is present in a DICOM object, this 
        parameter determines whether or not to "skip" (i.e. not include) the 
        value of that attribute in the binary output when making a copy of the
        object in question. The default behavior, specified by setting this
        parameter to "false", is to not skip these values and to include them
        as-is in the coresponding output. When an attribute is skipped, its
        value is included in the output truncated to length 0.

  DOCUMENT_HEADER is an optional header to specify the
  modification history. See dt:DOCUMENT_HEADER_T
  for more information.
  ATTRIBUTE_DEFINERS specify the owner of each
  private attribute. See dt:ATTR_DEFINER_T for more
  information.
 
  A private dictionary contains one or more private attribute
  definitions.
  Each private attribute specification takes a tag specification,
  a name, a value representation type, a value multiplicity
  type, and a retired flag. See dt:VR_T dt:VM_T for the allowed
  values for the value representation and value multiplicity elements.
  
    Note: Private attribute tags allow three specification types.
    The tag can be a 4-byte hexadecimal number, a 
    wildcard type such as "0039xx01", or a range type such
    as "0039xx01~0041xx01".
    
    Multiple attribute definitions cannot be associated with
    the same definer-tag pair in a dictionary. For example, a simple 
    attribute definition ("oracle", 60100010) matches a wildcard 
    attribute ("oracle", 60xx0010), they cannot coexist in the private 
    dictionary. Similarly, a range attribute definition ("Oracle", {6000-60FF})

    Introduction
      This schema defines the data dictionary that lists the DICOM 
      standard attributes as published by the DICOM Standards Committee.
      No other attributes, such as those defined by a modality 
      manufacturer or an organization other than NEMA,
      should be included in the standard data dictionary.
 
    Structure Overview
      Question mark "?" means optional items.
      Plus "+" means one or more items.
      Asterisk "*" means zero or more items.

    DOCUMENT_HEADER is an optional header to specify the
    modification history. See dt:DOCUMENT_HEADER_T
    for more information.
 
    ATTRIBUTE_DEFINERS specify the owner of each
    attribute. See dt:ATTR_DEFINER_T for more
    information. All DICOM standard attributes must have
    definer name "DICOM" and UID "1.2.840.10008.1".
 
    A standard dictionary contains one or more standard attribute
    definitions.
 
    Each standard attribute specification takes a tag specification,
    a name, a value representation type, a value multiplicity
    type, and a retired flag. See DICOM P3-6 2007 for a 
    description of these elements. See dt:VR_T dt:VM_T for the allowed 
    values of value representation and value multiplicity elements.
    
    Note: Wildcard character "x" can be used to specify
    standard attribute tags (for example, 60xx0010 for overlay rows).
      
    Multiple attribute definitions must not be associated with
    the same tag in a standard dictionary. For example, the
    attribute definition 60100010 matches the wildcard 
    attribute 60xx0010, they cannot coexist in 
    the dictionary. As a rule, an attribute must not match two 
    entries in the dictionary.

        UID_DEF (classification, isLE?, isEVR?, isCompressed?,retired?, contentType?)+
          UID
          NAME
          DESCRIPTION?
 
      A UID_DEF entry describes a UID value.
      The mandatory classification attribute specifies what
      a UID is. Its value can be "transferSyntax", "storageClass",
      "frameOfRef", "ldapOID", "entityID", or "other".
      "transferSyntax" means that the UID identifies transfer syntax.
      "storageClass" means that the UID identifies a storage class.
      "frameOfRef" means that the UID is a well-known frame of reference.
      "ldapOID" means that the UID is an LDAP OID.
      "entityID" means that the UID identifies an entity, which can be
       an organization or a device manufacturer.
      "other" means that the UID does not fall into any of the previous 
       categories.
                
      For entries that have a classification type of 
      "transferSyntax", the attributes "isLE", "isEVR", and 
      "isCompressed" further define the transfer syntax. These 
      attributes are ignored for all other classification types.
      The "isLE" attribute specifies whether the binary stream
      will be encoded with little-endian byte order(defaults to true). 
      The "isEVR" attribute specifies whether the binary stream 
      will use the explicit VR encoding rule (defaults to true). 
      The "isCompressed" attribute specifies whether the 
      transfer syntax means that the data content is compressed 
      (defaults to true).
        
      If an entry has a classification type of "storageClass", 
      the "contentType" attribute further specifies the primary
      content of a DICOM object belonging to this class. 
      The value of this attribute can be "image", "waveform",
      "report" or "other".
      "image" can be single-frame, multi-frame images, or video. 
      "waveform" can be ECG, EEG, or any other 1D signal. 
      "report" means a structured report. 
      "other" means overlay, GSPS, KO, or any other object types that 
              do not belong to the previous categories.
      For example "Ultrasound Multi-frame Image Storage" SOP
      class has a UID of "1.2.840.10008.5.1.4.1.1.3.1". Its 
      primary content is image.
