Imaging Type (79.2)

This file contains, for each imaging type entry, parameters that the module uses during various stages of exam and report processing and inquiring. The parameter switches allow the ‘customizing’ of the module for each type of imaging. WARNING: ENTRIES SHOULD NOT BE DELETED FROM THIS FILE. Data Storage ———— The data for the ‘IMAGING TYPE’ file is stored in the ^RA(79.2, global. At the present time this file is very static after day-one initialization is complete. However, it still should be journaled. It should also be translated if the operating system supports this function. Input Templates ————— The following is a list of input templates used by the package and the entry in the OPTIONS file (#19) that uses the template: Compiled Name Routine Description; Option(s) —- ——- ———————- RA IMAGE PARAMETERS Used to specify timeout seconds and whether the hardware system the module is running on is under fail-soft mode; RA FAILSOFT RA ON-LINE CRITERIA Used to indicate how long certain data should remain on file before it can be purged; RA PURGE If any modifications to these input templates are needed for local purposes, then great care should be taken not to degrade any branching logic in the template. Print Templates ————— The following is a list of print templates used by the package: Name Description; Option(s) —- ———————- RA ACTIVITY LOG Prints a list of the activity log entries for the imaging type;

Label/Field Name Field # Description Datatype Attributes Range
Type Of Imaging
  type_of_imaging
.01 This field contains the name of this type of imaging. DO NOT ADD, EDIT OR
DELETE imaging type names; this will cause problems between the
Radiology/Nuclear Med and Order Entry interface.
STRING INDEXED

Activity Log Cut-off
  activity_log_cutoff
.11 This field contains the imaging type parameter that tells the purge
routine of the module how many days to keep the various activity logs
on-line. The amount of days is a whole number between 90 and 99999 and is
determined at each site by the package coordinator and the computer
site manager.
NUMERIC    
Report Cut-off
  report_cutoff
.12 This field contains the imaging type parameter that tells the purge
routine of the module how many days to keep the reports on-line. The
report ‘impression’ will always stay on-line even after the reports
are purged. The amount of days is a whole number between 90 and 99999
and is determined at each site by the package coordinator and the
computer site manager.
NUMERIC    
Clinical History Cut-off
  clinical_history_cutoff
.13 This field contains the imaging type parameter that tells the purge
routine of the module how many days to keep the clinical history
of the visit on-line. The amount of days is a whole number between 90 and
99999 and is determined by the package coordinator and the computer
site manager.
NUMERIC    
Tracking Time Cut-off
  tracking_time_cutoff
.14 This field applies to sites that are using the tracking function of the
system to record when the exam status changes from one status to another.
It contains the imaging type parameter that tells the purge routine of
the module how many days to keep the ‘tracking time’ information on-line.
The amount of days is a whole number between 90 and 99999 and is
determined at each site by the package coordinator and the computer
site manager.
NUMERIC    
Order Data Cut-off
  order_data_cutoff
.16 This field contains the imaging type parameter that tells the purge
routine of the module how many days to keep the orders on-line. The
amount of days is a whole number between 30 and 99999 and is determined
by the package coordinator and the computer site manager.
NUMERIC    
Abbreviation
  abbreviation
3 This is the abbreviation associated with this type of imaging. It is
between 1 and 4 characters in length and is used as a cross reference and
for quick look ups. DO NOT CHANGE ABBREVIATIONS; changing abbreviations
will cause problems between the Order Entry and Radiology/Nuc Med
interface.
STRING INDEXED
REQUIRED
 
Operating Conditions
  operating_conditions
4 This field contains the hardware conditions parameter that tells the system
the type of operating conditions that are in effect. The available
conditions are: ‘N’ for normal and ‘E’ for emergency.

Under NORMAL conditions, the system uses the parameters set up
in the ‘Imaging Locations’ file to determine which input and printer
devices to use. Under EMERGENCY conditions, the system ignores all the
location parameters set up and the user is prompted for this information.
ENUMERATION INDEXED
REQUIRED
EMERGENCY(NORMAL COMPUTER DOWN): E
NORMAL: N
Radiopharmaceuticals Used?
  radiopharmaceuticals_used
5 This field is used to determine if radiopharmaceuticals will be used
for this imaging type. If so, then the nuclear medicine logic paths of
this software will be triggered at all appropriate points.
BOOLEAN   false: N
true: Y
Next Case Number
  next_case_number
25 This field is used to contain the next available case number for this
type of imaging. Case numbers are generated by the system in sequential
order and are available for reuse the following week after the exam status
becomes complete. Case numbers are recycled on Sunday at 12:01 AM.
NUMERIC    
Case Number Turnover Date
  case_number_turnover_date
26 This field contains the date the case numbers are scheduled to be recycled.
This date will always be the next Sunday’s date.
DATE-TIME    
Introduction Text
  introduction_text
50 This field provides a quick installation guide to be displayed when the
rad/nuc med system is initialized or reinitialized. It describes aspects
of the module to the site manager and how to proceed.
STRING    
Pfss Dept. Code
  pfss_dept_code
90 The 3 character numeric code represents the Department Code used by the
PFSS project.
STRING REQUIRED  
Activity Log
  activity_log
100 This multiple field contains a log of actions that have been taken on this
imaging record.
OBJECT   Activity_Log-79_23
Work Rvu (wrvu) Scaling Factor
  work_rvu_wrvu_scaling_factor
200 Identifies the ‘Society of Chairmen in Academic Radiology Departments’
(SCARD) scaling factor for a specific imaging type by calendar year.
