mi2b2 software update

  • Bill and Chris's Why2K workaround (using image number from header file as check for full study) is working nicely even in the face of increasing rate of file transfer. They incrementally increased the pull rate from the MGH PACS for the mi2b2 test project such that now they have retrieved over 80 studies in the past week during the 8 PM - 6 AM time interval.
  • New problem considered is when a C-find request retrieves multiple copies of a desired image study. Use UID to request the accession number and its matching AE title
  • Chris continues to develop the IRB auditing capabilities for the mi2b2 STAR-D cell and now that Shawn is back, he will be able to move this forward faster.
  • The are working on task management to improve the efficiency of the work flow to accomplish decompression, zipping it up and transfering it to the target disk location for each data set.
  • Bill hopes to have the VMware version for Jesse to try out at BIDMC by the end of this week.
  • Asynchronous C-moves. Initiator puts in a C-move request to a PACS with a specification for the C-store location and then starts a listener to wait until the PACS delivers the images. Question is whether it is possible to cut the connection between the initiator and the PACS? Folks were not sure, it is being tested at the various sites with disparate results. Chris is staying on this task as well.
