Have recently taken up this position, and think i have inherited an existing problem, which i hope may have been seen before. Although our Philips MR will communicate with PACS, one of the Physicians has recently cut a CD and attempted to read on his own machine (running eFilm), and it does not open.
Has anyone experienced this kind of issue before? I am looking to see if this is a problem with the MR, and whether i should call the service agent, or whether there is a workaround, as the CD thing happen only on rare occasions.

Philips use something called "enhanced MR". Some viewers have difficulty displaying this. In our viewers we have to edit a configuration file, I don't know if eFilm can do this for you.
I presume that the 'enhanced MR' output has changed the arrangement of the object tags in the Dicom string? Or would it be that this is one of those 'private tags' that I hear about every now and then?
