Sending Studies

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Sending studies to a remote server is comparably straightforward:

1.In the Servers pane, select My Studies.
2.In the study browser, select the study (or studies) you wish to send. You can Ctrl-Click to select multiple (individual) studies, or Shift-Click to select a range.
3.Click Send on the study browser toolbar, or right-click and select Send.
4.In the dialog box that appears, select the remote server (or server group) you wish to send to.
5.Click OK. An alert message will appear in the bottom right corner of the window indicating that the send has been scheduled. You can click on the alert link to open the Activity Monitor if you want to see the send progress, or you can open it at a later time via the Tools menu.

In the Activity Monitor, there should be 1 work item for each study you chose to send.

Important Notes

Cancelling a DICOM Send operation can leave a partial study on the destination device, which could lead to patient misdiagnosis due to incomplete information. If you cancel a DICOM Send operation, you should restart it at a later time to ensure it completes, or delete the study entirely from the destination device.
some features in the Workstation, such as key images and study attachments, create DICOM content that may be automatically published to remote servers. These send operations will show up as "Publish Files" work items in the Activity Monitor.

Known Issue

If the study contains one or more very large files (on the order of hundreds of megabytes), you may run out of memory while sending the study. This is a known issue and will be fixed in a future version of the Workstation. As a temporary workaround, these very large files will need to be transferred manually by physical storage media, such as a USB flash drive. Alternatively, if possible, you can try to configure the modality such that it generates single frame instances rather than a single large multiframe image (which is usually the case with such large files).
