HL7 Interface Ensures Network Interoperability

May 25, 2010 - Radiologists expect disparate clinical information technology (IT) systems to be interoperable and allow them to exchange images and contextual data with referring physicians and other specialists.

To enable interoperability, information management systems are building standards-based health level seven- (HL7) compliant interfaces.

Version 2.2 of the Roentgen Burner, a system that runs in the background receiving and storing reports, is newly interfaced with HL7. The upgrade also includes a CD/DVD importer with a paper digitizer for importing studies and paper information into any server that is based on the digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM).

BRIT will demonstrate the new capabilities for Roentgen Burner in booth 310 at the annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) being held June 3-6 in Minneapolis.

The new advanced CD/DVD importing tool supports a modality worklist interface so the study can be matched with an order before sending it to the PACS. Flexible options allow the user to select the entire study or an image series, while another new feature lets the user change information in the DICOM header. All annotations and key object notes (sticky notes) are included with any saved or burned image.

As with prior software versions of the Roentgen Burner, a specific and detailed order file containing all information needed to record the disc(s) is produced for each order. Roentgen Burner automatically creates a label based on customizable options.

2-D and 3-D digital breast images

Since the widespread adoption of digital imaging and PACS, referring physicians seldom visit radiology reading rooms, substantially reducing a major source of feedback for radiologists. (Shown are 2-D and 3-D digital breast images.) A software module to be described April 5 at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium has been providing that feedback for radiologists interpreting breast images at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
