Don't send specific images

  • Hello,

    is there a way to prevent Conquest from sending specific images to a workstation, when the workstation performs a Q/R?

    E.g. there are four pictures in a series and the pictures #2 and #4 which have the value X in the dicom field Y should not be send.

    If 0018,1023 = "exact string/value"

    then dont send

    else send

    goto next picture



  • Hi,

    You can use an RetrieveResult converter, e.g. in dicom.ini (untested) to scramble the image and make it unusable prior to sending. If you want it not sent at all you need to use a Retrieve converter which only works on the database contents, because that is used to decide what to send.


    RetrieveResultConverter0 = if Data["0018,1023"] == "exact string/value" then Data:SetVR(0x7fff, 0x0010, "") end


    RetrieveConverter0 = if Data["0018,1023"] == "exact string/value" then reject() end -- 0018,1023 must be in database

  • Hi Marcel,

    when you say "scramble the image ... prior to sending" it does scramble the original image on the harddrive or the image copy loaded into the RAM which conquest wants to send? The original image shall not be altered.
