Key Object Selection Document

A Object Selection Document can be thought of as a Structured_Report without the report!

Whilst this might sound stupid, it makes sense as they are used merely as a "manifest with a purpose", sharing most of the attributes of Structured_Reports.

There are multiple names by which this object type is commonly known:

  • Key Image note (KIN)
  • Key Object note (KON)
  • KOS

They can be used for multiple purposes where it is required to "group" or "sub-smaple" Composite_Instances, such as

  • Images for quality control
  • Teaching
  • Access over slow connections

They are also used in the IHE XDS-I profile
