SOP Specific Conformance (Storage Class)

Basically no data element is forcibly rounded or omitted in reception.
If the transferred image has the same UID as that of an SOP instance that has been already registered, the transferred image is overwrite-saved.

Real-World Activity: Retrieval Response

When a retrieval request is received from a remote system, a response is returned based on information in a local database.
