I have written a number of tools using Slicer that aid in surgical planning and have packaged them as their own applications and focused on ease-of-use etc. in order to increase accessibility to clinicians without a technical background. Still, expecting them to be able to download DICOMs and the software may be asking too much. I was wondering if there have been any efforts to integrate some 3D Slicer functionality into an Electronic Medical Record or PACS. Right now the steps are:
Download DICOM from PACS (requires the export feature to be activated by tech support at my institution)
Download software from website
Select DICOM in software
If there’s any way to cut down the number of steps I’d greatly appreciate any advice. Any kind of web-based software with PACS integration or something along those lines would be perfect. Could anyone recommend similar projects or where to start looking? Thanks.
