Profile Affected
PCC-TF vol 2
TF Version
Volume and Section


Update Bindings with the following extensions for XDS-SD


XDS-SD is a CDA R2 document and thus conforms to the XDS Metadata requirements in the PCC-TF, volume 2, Section 5 unless otherwise specified below.


XDS-SD leverages the XDS DocumentEntry Metadata requirements in the PCC-TF, volume 2, Section and in PCC_TF-2/Bindings unless otherwise specified below


The XDSDocumentEntry.formatCode shall be urn:ihe:iti:xds-sd:pdf:2008 when the document is scanned pdf and urn:ihe:iti:xds-sd:text:2008 when the document is scanned text. The formatCode codeSystem shall be


This value shall be the ClinicalDocument/id in the HL7 CDA R2 header. The root attribute is required, and the extension attribute is optional. In accordance with the XDS.a profile, total length is limited to 128 characters; for XDS.b the limit is 256 characters. Additionally see PCC-TF, volume 2, Section or PCC_TF-2/Bindings for further content specification.

Relating instances of XDS-SD documents

In general, most instances of XDS-SD will not have parent documents. It is possible, however, in some specific use cases that instances of XDS-SD documents are related. For example, for a particular document it may be the case that both the PDF scanned content and somewhat equivalent plaintext need to be wrapped and submitted. Each document would correspond to separate XDSDocumentEntries linked via an XFRM Association that indicates one document is a transform of the other. These can be submitted in a single submission set, or in separate ones. Other specific examples may exist and this profile does not preclude the notion of a parent document for these cases.


No additional constraints. Particular to this profile, a legitimate use of submission sets would be to maintain a logical grouping of multiple XDS-SD documents. We encourage such usage. For more information, see PCC-TF-2 Section or PCC_TF-2/Bindings.
