The DICOM Processor can immediately create documents for the study UIDs specified in the HL7 messages.

To configure the DICOM Processor to create documents for specific studies:

  1. Map the $$DICOMSTUDYID predefined default value to the HL7 message template.

    The DICOM Processor message action determines the uniqueness of a study by its study UID. Messages containing new study UIDs will result in the creation of new placeholder documents.


    The HL7 Listener will not create a placeholder document for a specific study if the study UID is missing.

  2. Configure the HL7 message template to index documents with the patient identification information necessary to attach documents to patient records or charts.
  3. If the message template needs to handle multiple DICOM studies, select the Enable to repeat setting for the message segment containing the studies. This setting is available in HL7 Segment Settings for the message segment.
    When a single HL7 message specifies multiple study UIDs, each study is stored as a separate placeholder document and indexed using the Keyword Values from the message. If each study document should have different Keyword Values, then the sending application needs to send a separate HL7 message for each study.
  4. Configure the following DICOM Processor options:
    • Document Type —Select the Document Type where this import process should store DICOM study documents.

      To archive DICOM studies to different Document Types based on modality, configure a separate DICOM import process and message template for each Document Type. Then, configure each message template to filter on the modality code field.

    • DICOM Repository —Select the server for the medical imaging viewer. Available servers are configured under Medical | DICOM | Viewer Integration Settings.
