Value Representation: Graphic Character in LT (Long Text), ST (Short Text) and UT (Unlimited Text)

#1 Post by VPoluchaevskiy » Thu, 2020-11-19, 11:06

Hi,
"DICOM PS3.5 2020d - Data Structures and Encoding" in chapter "6.2 Value Representation (VR)" says:
that LT (Long Text), ST (Short Text) and UT (Unlimited Text) may contain the Graphic Character.
http://dicom.nema.org/medical/dicom/cur ... t_6.2.html
Unfortunately, I can neither find the listing of these "Graphic Character" (which characters are meant here) nor any practical examples.
Could someone help me please?

This question is not really related to the DCMTK but the answer can be found in DICOM PS3.5 Section 6.1. Also the Wikipedia article on Graphic character might be of some help.

Thank you.
DICOM PS3.5 Section 6.1 it is written that DICOM supports GB2312.
There are many characters in GB2312:
for example for ROMAN NUMERALs, BOX DRAWINGS, PARENTHESIZED NUMBERs
and the characters from different languages.
Are all of these characters allowed for LT (Long Text), ST (Short Text) and UT (Unlimited Text)?
