  2. Some hospitals have their current PACS system auto route studies for interpretation based on specific accession number(s). This is done by the Accession number Tag being populated with AAA and their PACS routing rules looking for studies with the desired accession number. When there is a match, the PACS will forward the DICOM study to the desired destination.

  3. The ability to save echocardiogram cine loops as an .avi file would be an invaluable tool for Cardiologists who wish to create powerpoints with imbedded videos.

  4. If I have 2 CTs up from 2 different dates, is there a way I can make the FOV the same? At this time the studies need to me manually set and then linked. A tool to automatically set the FOV would help avoid the manual step prior to linking.

  5. We need an account that will let users resolve import conflicts. They don't need to be admin just need to import and fix conflicts.

  6. SmartPacs needs more options like eFilm or better.
    • In eFilm you can right click and see all the images as an option and click on
    the one you want.
    • In eFilm you can split patients or studies and view on the same screen
    • In eFilm the zoom was smoother, smartpacs is jerky
    • Image quality is better in eFilm

  7. Its unfortunate that SmartPACS viewer currently does not have a sorting feature to display studies. Meaning if I open up a patient's record with multiple studies they are displayed from oldest to newest on the sidebar (oldest on top) . Viewing them from newest to oldest (newest on top) is ideal and I think is what most other viewing platforms offer.

  8. A 3D Cursor button for multiplane images. In EFilm there is a r click button that locates a point in all three planes. The closest function button for this action is MPR on/off that allows 3D location on one true image and location on reconstructed images that are blurry.

  9. Although there are a few separate suggestions along these lines, I would like to impress upon you the need to expand your search and sort options to match those which are/were available in eFilm. Sorting studies by timestamp within a given day range is absolutely necessary for a big, multi-building hospital with a large imaging caseload; it is crucial for identifying studies as they are made to prevent delayed or missing paperwork from causing cases to fall through the cracks. This also allows quick and easy identification of cases done overnight by the emergency staff. Searching and sorting cases by…

  10. There should be an option to allow cine loops to autoplay by default. Cine play should also be hotkey assignable to eliminate the need to continuously click the play button for each stack.

  11. Currently exporting studies locally in JPEG format does not save the images in acquisition order. When doctors email the images to the patient owner, it looks bad that they are not listed in order.

    Thank you for the feedback. This is planned for the next development cycle. At this time a work around can be to export the JPEG images from the AIS Study List. This will export the images by the Date and Time DICOM stamps.

  12. With multiple vets, I imagine there may be the odd person who decides to change the password, which will change it for everybody. Clearly this can be reset in admin mode, but is it possible to disengage this from the user platform?

  13. Add a column to indicate the modality in the study list. It would allow us to quickly find the images of a modality without doing an advanced search.

  14. Currently, we are only able to arrange studies by date. There is no way to arrange studies taken on the same day by timestamp. For example, if you have 40 studies taken during the day, there is no way to quickly sort these 40 studies into which have been taken most recently.

  16. It would be more efficient to add a group of custom annotations at one time instead of one line at a time.
    AND, then to copy it from one radiograph to others.

    i.e. For OFA submissions:
    Full registered name:

    Registration Number:

    Tattoo:

    D.O.B.
    Owner name:
    Image date:
    Hospital name
    Doctor name

    It is too cumbersome to change the standard overlay information, then rebuild it after finishing with the special Overlay.

    OR,

    Can there be various Annotation or Overlay "templates" to toggle between?

    Thank you.

  17. Customers email JPEG images and the size of the JPEG images exported limits the number of images that can be attached to a single email. If the user could adjust the JPEG compression to make the images smaller on export, more images can be attached to a single email.

    Users want the same level of compression by default for Local Export of JPEG with or without the Overlay burned into the image.

    Users want to specify the level of compression on JPEG export.

  19. When you export studies with viewer included, these are unviewable to MAC users (clients, colleagues, rDVMs, etc). Very frustrating that we basically have to go tell them to download OsiriX or another MAC software just to view their DICOM images.

  20. When you export to a network device the window just disappears and there is no confirmation that it will send. This causes the user to be unsure and resend studies causing further backlog due to resends.

    Thank you for the feedback.  We will look at how export confirmations can be optimized in a future development cycle.

    When a study is exported, the user should review the export queue for confirmation of the status of transmission.  If the export is local, the Local Queue will have the current status of the export.  If the export is over the Network, the Network Queue will have the current status.  This is the best way to view and verify the export completed successfully as the queue will display the progress and will display the transmission is complete or if there was an error.

    More details on the Local Queue can be found here:
    https://apps.soundvet.com/smartpacs/docs/studyList/studyList/utilityBar/export#local-export-queue
    More details on the Network Queue can be found here:
