      Hi,

      I was wondering if anyone has had direct experience of connecting the
      Philips iE33 to EchoPac and whether the structured report can be read?
      The EchoPac conformance statement suggests this should be possible but
      I have heard differently from a GE specialist stating that the EchoPac
      will not support iE33 structured report data at all. Any confirmation
      or otherwise would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks all.

            Dear Dan,
             
            Sorry for the very late reply and I hope the answer is still up to date.
             
            The reason workstations do not support structured reporting is due to software implementation.  While manufacturers implemented structured reporting in their platforms, they did not do so in their workstation solutions.
             
            Structured reporting is rather complex from the software development side.  Even the iE33 has only a limited subset of the entire cardiac standard.  Thus even when the workstation is compliant only certain values will transfer.
             
            Be careful with DICOM venors because some say they are structured reporting compliant when they are only pseudo compliant.  By this I mean they map the values into their current databases but the actual database is non-compliant.  Therefore cross platform and cross vendor sharing is not really possible.
             
            ComPACS does however have a truly compliant DICOM Structured Reporting database.  As such it is likely the first echo solution which is.  For more information you can visit the web site at www.compacs.com.
             
            I hope this is of value.
             
            Regards
            C. Bohl
