Displaying series

You can add series to the image screen by dragging or clicking on them.
By default, images are kept online for a period of 1 year, 3 years for mammo. In case the retention time has expired, the images will be removed form PACSonWEB and a series, marked as "Expired images", will be available in the series picker.
The same series is also shown in case a study is available for at least 1 week and no images are available yet.
Depending on the sending radiology department, you may have the possibility to retrieve the expired / missing images, using the Fetch functionality.
In case this option is available, you have the possibility to:
FETCH IMAGES: fetch the set of images that were initially available (possibly filtered)
FETCH ALL IMAGES: fetch all images of the exam
You can add multiple studies to the list by clicking on a study in the history.
Also in case you logged on as a patient with a reference code that allows access to multiple exams, all exams will be loaded into the series picker.

Prior and subsequent studies

Prior and Subsequent studies
When a study is opened, POW indicates with the symbols P and S if an older or more recent study is also available to compare with the current active study.
P = Prior study: The study has a study date which is older than the current study.
S = Subsequent study: The study has a study date which is more recent than the current study.
When an image from a Prior or Subsequent study is in view, the date is highlighted to give an extra indication.
In case an issue occurs when loading an image, the following icon will be displayed. In such case, please contact the service desk.
