Configuring the Local DICOM Server

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page
Show/Hide Hidden Text

The Vetstation has a local DICOM Server that listens for and responds to requests from other PACS servers and workstations on your network.  If you want to perform DICOM queries, send and receive images, open studies via streaming, etc. from other DICOM devices (i.e, remote Application Entities, or AEs for short), such as PACS servers, PACS workstations (including other instances of ClearCanvas Vetstation) and modalities, you will need to configure the Vetstation properly.

Although it is normally configured during installation, you can also configure the local DICOM Server's AE Title and listening port from within the Vetstation.

1.In the main menu, select Tools > Options > DICOM Server.
2.In the AE Title field, enter an identifying name of some kind. It should be uppercase and should not exceed 16 characters.
3.Do not edit the Port unless you know what you're doing.
4.If you want to be able to retrieve studies from other DICOM devices (e.g. a PACS) to the Vetstation, you may need to add this information to the other device's configuration so it knows how to connect to the Vetstation in order to send the requested studies to it.
