Searching for patients
The best way to search for studies on PACS is via the patientís NHI which can be added into the Patient ID field.
As not all patients who have examinations with TRGG have an NHI it is also possible to search via patient name. When searching via patient name it is important to remember to use the correct format.
The correct format: Surname , firstname ( including comma and space)
PACS is the quickest way to access reports as they are available as soon as the radiologist has authorised the report.
Reports can be accessed in a number of ways:
Using the mouse to manipulate the image
The Inteleviewer assigns buttons to your mouse that work well together. What tools are assigned can be seen in the very bottom left hand corner of the screen.
Move the mouse forwards and backwards and side to side while holding the relevant mouse button.
The middle mouse button can be activated by pressing down on the mouse wheel.
Remember it is not possible for users to damage or change the image in any permanent way!
