  • Outline of some issues encountered when retrieving lists of images form PACS systems:
    • in i2b2, if a query specifies that data are present, how often is the file empty?
      • At MGH the data come from RPDR so there is already a first process of verification.
      • At BWH it happens sometimes because some accession numbers don't have images associated to them, for example it is a contrast injection or a 3D reconstruction. The solution is to look by patient ID that will be in the header of the primary exam.

  • Next step:
    • Implementation of the retrieve portion and send to XNAT portion.
    • Finding a couple of scientific project at the different sites
