DeJarnette's Intelligent Router solution, which provides DICOM study distribution capability, provides manual routing and three automated routing technologies:
- Source Metadata Routing (SMR)
- Modality Worklist Routing (MWR)
- Query/Move Routing (QMR)
SMR ("store and forward" routing) determines the destination of a study by applying routing rules based on metadata in the source data stream. Metadata mapping, addition and substitution rules are supported.
MWR ("prefetch" routing) makes use of a source modality worklist provider to determine the studies to route. MWR provides the ability to apply "prefetch rules" based on queriable DICOM metadata fields (modality, study date, time, etc.), most recent 'N', and date range. QMR ("Nighthawk" routing) makes use of a source Q/R provider to determine the studies to route. QMR makes use of a schedule and queriable metadata fields to determine what to route. In both cases, routed studies are transfered to the destination either via a third party move or a retrieve and store operation (allowing for cascading of the SMR router).
All routers make use of schedule rules and support unlimited multiple input sources and unlimited multiple destinations. Image compression/decompression is provide as an option. The Intelligent Router is available as a turnkey solution or as a PACSware (software only) solution.
