Does anybody know if PACS can save and display 1st and Second reporter for radiology reports displayed on PACS.

This was discussed at our RIS user group meeting. We have asked our RIS supplier to electronically send information about the 2nd reporter to PACS. However, what isn't clear is whether PACS can support this. Is this Dicom standard based, or is this individual for different PACS suppliers?

HSS and GE support transfer of the second author. This field is sent from CRIS to the mitra broker in the HL7 report message, and then onto PACS. How that field is displayed in PACS is configurable by site at setup. We call it "Reported with:".

Thanks Rhidian.

Does anyone know if Agfa supports this. Could Agfa (if you are reading this) let me know if you have the answer. We are due for a RIS and PACS upgrade soon, and could do the configuration work at the same time.

You could always have it display in the report on PACS which would come from the RIS quite easily.
