  1. VM customers are looking for ways to make their systems more efficient and several have asked me about the ability to move the directory for which logs are stored to another disk.

  2. Add option from Settings GUI to specify the time of day that the SQL backup run. Example, VM customer with large database would like them run at 1am. Currently to configure that we must go to the GUI and make the change to backup timeframe at 1am and set 24hours so it runs at that period.

  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. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. When on the Patient row, the user would like to be able to double click to open the studies related to the patient in the Viewer.

    When on the Study tile, the user should be able to double click to open the study in the Viewer.

    Currently the user has to click on the View icon on the study tile to view a study. If the user wants to view more than one study, currently the user has to check the box to select one or more studies/ patients and then the View icon to view studies.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. Although SmartPACS has a built in Viewer Radiologists often use Osirix during residency and are accustomed to using the software and reporting within the software. These users need to get data from the PACS server to their local viewer/ reporting software. Without the support of C-GET, users must have a static IP address to retrieve the image data and obtaining a static IP can be quite difficult or impossible based on the user network configuration / workflow.

    Users need to be able to use C-GET to obtain image data from SmartPACS into a 3rd party software application.

  15. 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?

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. When using the linear measurement tool for short measurements the box with the numerical measurement gets in the way covering the area you need to measure. It is not possible to accurately place the far dot
