Description of activity and work performed
In a pilot project with an industrial partner we designed an innovative solution based on wristbands and a dedicated server/software infrastructure,
which requires scanning the case number on the patient’s wristband for study registration.
Manual selection of the patient’s data thus becomes redundant reducing wrong patient and wrong examination errors.
After transmitting the case number to the control panel,
the patient is automatically displayed in the system and unblocked for image registration.
the specific case number needs to be delivered in a DICOM tag,
which is known by the modality.
Since a DICOM tag for the specific case number does not exist by default,
we had to create dedicated intermediary proxies.
These proxies communicate with the Radiological information system (RIS) and ask for the worklist.
After converting the tags,
the case number is delivered in a corresponding DICOM tag to the modality.
