    Hi Marcel


    I totally agree with your stance of not changing the Patient ID. But if you are facing problem in integrating PACS Server with your HIMS then you have to do so. My question was , as mentioned in the manual and on forums in number of posts that ImportConvertor runs first before saving any data on the hard disk. The ImportConvertor works fine as per our desire but the folder name is not update as per new Patient ID. In this case (i might be wrong), the incoming images are saved first and then import convertor runs??


    Please guide me.

    HI Marcel


    Thanks for your prompt response. Please find my reply inline.


    1) If you have so many projects I would not use nightlymove, it is too limited. Use command line tools instead
    As i told you i have 87 sites at the moment that are connected with the Central PACS. If i configure NIGHTLYMOVE won't server move data to ARCHIVE?? If command line tools please guide.


    2) MAG stores remain live, so conquest reads them as well, zipping is therefore not possible

    You can zip individual patients for export from the command line or a script.

    3) The server core allows as many MAG devices as you like, but the GUI is limited to 10
    Server core??? Will you guide from where i can download this core based software? Will i be able to run Server Core option based on Windows. Guidelines required.


    If you want that many storage locations, is MAG device the right mechanism? What do the projects represent?

    Objective is to save each site data in a separate location. Project means sites that are sending data to us.

    Thanks for the feedback Marcel. Firstly, in nightlymove option do i have to define the MAG Storage limitation when studies will move or studies will move every night? Secondly, after the moves to the archive, can i zip the studies? and thirdly, the last can i some how increase the number of MAGs from 9 to n numbers. I have 87 projects and want to save initial data in MAG0 and then move them to separte MAGs. (guidance required in this step also.)

    Hi


    I was reading the user manual yesterday and got a following query. I had setup a local storage and images are saved at the specified location. My question is how to define the ARCHIVE and when will images move to this archive. I mean what will trigger the images to move??

    Thanks Garlicknots


    For your prompt reply . I am not that much into programming now a days.


    I decided go leave it as it is as my end user was able to query the study on new patient id.


    As far as your guidance is concerned i never used SQL Update command in lua. If you can share a sample of it i can play around and share the finalized version of the script if i get it.

    Hi


    I am using Lua script to modify the Patient ID. This part is working. But when the images are saved on the disk they are saved with the old Patient ID.


    For example : If my DR machine is sending the DICOM Data with the Patient ID:: AA_BCDE_123 or AA-BCD-12. Whereas in our EMR we have PatientID as AA/BCDE/123 or AA/BCD/12.

    The images are saved with the Patient ID AA/BCDE/123 or AA/BCD/12 in Database but physically they are saved as AA_BCDE_123 or AA-BCD-12.

    The File Name Syntax i am using is as follow:-

    FileNameSyntax = %studydate[6,7]-%studydate[4,5]-%studydate[0,3]\%id-(%name)\%VSeriesDescription\%series%counter.dcm


    [lua]

    ImportConverter0 = dofile(updatepatid.lua')


    patid.lua


    PatientID= Data.PatientID

    Data.PatientID = string.gsub(Data.PatientID, '_', '/')

    Data.PatientID = string.gsub(Data.PatientID, '-', '/')


    And secondly, if i want to modify already saved data (there are around 25,000 studies), please also guide in this regard also.

    Hi


    I faced quite a strange issue in the new release .


    I made some changes in the dicom.ini like incoming folders etc. But under the Maintenance Tab when i hit to Rebuild the Mag Drive. All the configuration like Watch Folder is over written.


    --HM

    Hi


    I am trying to configure the newly installed CT Scan with PACS Server. DICOM Test is PASSED but when i try to send images from CT Scan, only one image that is Summary of the Patient Scan is saved. Rest all of the images are discarded.


    Appended is the log for your review.

    Please guide.

    I want when a query is made to Virtual Server A, data is copied from Virtual Server A to the Main PACS. Firs it is saved on Main PACS and then Main PACS forward it to client. I want that no data is saved on Main PACS. Main PACS simply forward the data.

    Hi


    I had setup 2 x virtual servers and they are working fine. I wanted that Mian PACS Server after serving the data to client must delete the study that is retrieved from Virtual Server. After reading the manual i found the following option::

    OverlapVirtualGet. If set other than 0, data coming in for other (virtual) servers is transmitted directly through to clients while it is being received. The value determines how many objects

    are kept in memory. Default is 0. To enable it set it to 5 or the same value as EnableReadAheadThread.


    My dicom.ini file is


    #For virtual Servers Setup

    VirtualServerFor0 = VSERVERA,CACHESTUDIES,CACHESERIES,NONVIRTUAL

    VirtualServerFor1 = VSERVERB,CACHESTUDIES,CACHESERIES,NONVIRTUAL

    VirtualServerPerSeries0 = 5

    VirtualServerPerSeries1 = 5

    OverlapVirtualGet = 10

    CacheVirtualData = 1



    BUt still files are first saved on main server then they are fwded to client.


    Please guide me in this regard

    Hi Marcel


    Thanks for prompt response.


    1) I was reading the manual that i can max define 99 ImportConvertor and 10 MAGs then how to handle and configure 80 different MAGs.


    2)

    [lua]

    if Association.Sender~='AE1' then Data["9999,6789"]=Association.Sender end


    In our case there are some modalities that have same AETs. Like CT99 or CT only.


    In question that is not asked in this thread. How can i ensure that Conquest have received a study. In my case CT Scan A have 250 images and took say 30 sec to be saved on disk whereas CT Scan B having 13000 images took 2 mins. How to ensure that a study is received and saved.


    --HM

    Thanks for your prompt reply. Please find my reply inline


    Conquest is free, so nothing is required. But a quick help:


    1. Use a MAG importconverter based on your rules.

    I had searched the manual but couldn't find MAG importconvertor based on rules. If possible can you share an example (sample lua code).


    2. Use org %u to use the sending AE as originating AE

    If two modalities have same AET then in that case i am unable to identify the study. If i set some info in private tag and same DICOM Private tag is at the Central Archive will that info be populated or ignored by conquest.


    3. Difficult. You can reject or modify query move results to hide data from other doctors. I am sure we? discussed this before on the forum.

    Can you please share an example (sample lua code)


    4. Note sure what you mean

    I mean images from SITE A compressed under JK and SITE B under JPEG 2000


    5. Probably. But you would need to do load and reliability tests yourself.

    Tested and verified


    regards,


    Marcel

    Hi


    We have 80 PACS servers running in different hospitals and diagnostic setups. Currently every site has its own PACS Server and serving the local need of the site. Now we want the whole data to be stored in Central PACS. Following queries are generated that need clarification and way around.


    1. How to configure separate MAG for each site or store each site data in a separate folder for Management in the future

    2. If Conquest is configured as database less DICOM Router on the site that forward it to Central PACS, how the Central PACS will tag or mark that study is received from that site.

    3. How to ensure that Doctor of Site A cannot view the images of Site B and vice versa.

    4. Site wise compression protocols.

    5. Can a single instance of Conquest serve our need. As we have setup conquest in load and cluster mode.


    Guidance required.

    Hi


    Will somebody guide me how can i differentiate Axial, Coronal, Segiitial and Volume images from a CT Scan images.


    For this purpose do i need to add some column in database for capturing this info.
