<templateId root='Scanner OID'/>
The <templateId> element identifies this <author> as the scanner (device) of original content that has been subsequently scanned into this document. The templateId shall have root="Scanner OID".
The ClinicalDocument/author/time shall denote the time at which the original content was scanned. This value shall be equal to that of ClinicalDocument/effectiveTime. At a minimum, the time shall be precise to the day and shall include the time zone offset from GMT.
The ClinicalDocument/author/assignedAuthor/id element shall be at least the root oid of the scanning device.
The ClinicalDocument/author/assignedAuthor/assignedAuthoringDevice/code element shall be present. The values set here are taken from appropriate DICOM vocabulary. The value of code@codeSystem shall be set to “1.2.840.10008.2.16.4”. The value of code@code shall be set to “CAPTURE” for PDF scanned content and “WST” for plaintext. The value of code@displayName shall be set to “Image Capture” for PDF scanned content and “Workstation” for plaintext.
The ClinicalDocument/author/assignedAuthor/assignedAuthoringDevice/manufacturerModelName element shall be present. The mixed content shall to contain string information that specifies the scanner product name and model number. From this information, features like bit depth and resolution can be inferred. In the case of virtually scanned documents (for example, print to PDF), the manufactureModelName referenced here refers to the makers of the technology that was used to produce the embedded content.
The ClinicalDocument/author/assignedAuthor/assignedAuthoringDevice/softwareName element shall be present. The mixed content shall contain string information that specifies the scanning software name and version. In the case of virtually scanned documents, the softwareName referenced here refers to the technology that was used to produce the embedded content.
The ClinicalDocument/author/assignedAuthor/representedOrganization/id element shall be present. The root attribute shall be set to the oid of the scanning facility.
