Abstract

See full text

A computerized imager is programmed with software that allows properly formatted image frames (objects) to be sent to one or more remotely located devices selected from a list of configured remote devices. The imager is programmed with multiple configurable DICOM tasks, each task being configurable in accordance with configuration data of a respective remote device entered on a Device Configuration menu. Configuration of a DICOM task occurs only after a configured remote device has been activated. Each remote device can be activated by clicking on an activation field on a respective page of the Device Configuration menu. Alternatively, all configured remote devices can be activated and de-activated from a Device Activation menu having a respective activation field for each configured device.
