The list of DICOM elements shown in the attachment (on the left) are those effected during the anonymization process. This list is based on the DICOM standard (Confidentiality Profiles, Part 15, chapter E).
There are three columns in the attachment whose meanings are as follows:
DICOM element: the official DICOM element name. For private tags, the private tag definition is shown
If the anonymization type is STRICT or the Attribute is defined as STRICT, the processing in the second column will occur:
GENERATE_UID means a new Uid will be calculated
DELETE means the value will be deleted
DATE_PRESERVE_YEAR_ONLY means the date year is preserved but the month and day are not
DATE_PRESERVE_DECADE_ONLY means the date decade is preserved, but the rest of the date is not (for birthdays)
NULL_TIME means that time is nullified (000000.00)
Any other value shown will be the anonymized attribute value
The third column shows whether the attribute is STRICT or NOT_STRICT. If the attribute is NOT_STRICT and the anonymization type is NOT_STRICT, then the attribute in question will not be anonymized.
Any tags not included in the attached dictionary are completely removed during this process.
This would include private tags and any newly added generic tags.
All sequence attributes listed in the attachment are removed in total to include all embedded attributes.
