ORU R01: Send radiology reports to PKB
The ORU R01 message can be used to send radiology reports, and will appear in the "Imaging" tab in the PKB web interface.
Note: we detect radiology data based on MSH-3. It must be "RADIOLOGY", or else another radiology system on our list (let us know what you use and we'll add it to our list).
A "content pattern" indicates how PKB will interpret the contents of your message. This provides additional guidance over and above the syntactic requirements of individual segments.
PKB only supports one content pattern for radiology reports.
Single HTML report with multiple embedded image attachments
The OBR group can contain multiple OBX and NTE segments.
If an OBX segment contains an image (OBX-2.1 = ED and OBX-5.2 = IM) then the image will be extracted and added as an attachment to the final radiology report. The location and ordering of OBX segments containing images is not considered meaningful.
An NTE segment, or an OBX segment which does not contain an image, is considered to contain a portion of the radiology report. The ordering of these segments will be respected, but they do not maintain an identity in their own right. They will be concatenated together to form a single HTML radiology report.
Note: If you wish to apply a patient delay this must be provided in the first segment.
