Radiation Exposure Monitoring Profiles -- REM and REM-NM Tests

This section describes tests that are specific to the IHE Radiation Exposure Monitoring Integration profiles: REM and REM-NM

Dose Information Reporter Test 4400: REM Vendor Interoperability

Dose Information Reporters in the REM profile are required to support storage of DICOM Dose SR objects.

This test gives you access to sample DICOM SRs created by REM Acquisition Modalities prior to the current Connectathon. Modalities are asked to submit samples into gazelle 2 weeks prior to the Connectathon test deadline (or earlier). The goal is to avoid surprises on the Connectathon floor.

Instructions

  • You will find these samples in gazelle under Connectathon -> List of Samples. Select your system name and look under Samples available for rendering to find sample REM Dose SRs.
  • Your task is to test with these samples prior to the Connectathon.

Evaluation

  • Create a short txt file indicating you have accessed these samples. List those that you have successfully tested with your Dose Information Reporter. If you encounter problems, contact the Project Manager who will help resolve them with Modality vendors. Upload that txt file into gazelle as the results for this test.

Dose Information Reporter Test 4401: De-identify Sample Dose SR

In the REM profile, Dose Information Reporter systems are required to have the capabililty to de-identify Dose SR objects. See the Technical Framework reference below for details

In this “test”, you create a sample data set that will be reviewed by other participants, specifically the Dose Registers. The goal of this test is to prepare other actors so they are not surprised during Connectathon events. In order to facilitate their testing, please submit your samples 2 weeks before the usual test deadlines.

Instructions

  • Your task is to de-identify a Dose SR. You may have your own original SR to use, or you may choose to start with a sample Dose SR submitted into gazelle by one of the REM modalities for test 4400.
  • Place the original and de-identified Dose SRs in DICOM Part 10 files using your own tools or follow the numbered instructions below.
  • Upload DICOM Part 10 file and the screen capture snapshot into gazelle under Connectathon -> List of samples. On the 'Samples to share' tab, find the REM sample entry and Add a sample for test 4401. You are encouraged to submit multiple samples.

Evaluation

  • Create a short txt file indicating you have completed the upload step. Upload that txt file into gazelle under the test log results for this test.
  • As Dose Register actors import your data, you may receive a request for interpretation or directives from the Project Manager to repair attributes. This may prove to be an iterative process.


Evaluation

The evaluation of this test comes in the form of feedback from vendors who try to import/process/display the contents of your objects. If they find issues, you will be asked to work with those vendors (and the Project Manager) to resolve those issues

Dose Information Reporter Test 4404: Access REM Samples from Past Connectathons

We have been testing REM for several years, and we've collected sample Dose SRs from Modalities that have tested REM at various connectathons. To expand the number of samples you have to test with, we point you to this collection of SRs.

INSTRUCTIONS

  • We encourage you to download them and test with them in your lab. At the Connectathon, you will be required to test with actual test partners, but we hope these samples provide for expanded testing opportunities.

EVALUATION

There is no log to upload for this test.

Dose Information Reporter Test 4410: REM-NM Vendor Interoperability

Dose Information Reporters in the REM-NM profile are required to support query/retrieve and storage of DICOM Radiopharmaceutical Radiation Dose Structured Report (RRDSR) objects.

This test gives you access to sample DICOM RRDSRs created by REM-NM Radiopharmaceutical Activity Supplier (RAS) systems prior to the current Connectathon. RASs are asked to submit samples into gazelle 2-3 weeks prior to the Connectathon test deadline (or earlier). The goal is to avoid surprises on the Connectathon floor.

Instructions

  • You will find these samples in gazelle under Connectathon -> List of Samples. Select your system name and look for the REM-NM entry under Samples available for rendering to find sample REM-NM RRDSRs.
  • Your task is to test with these samples prior to the Connectathon.

Evaluation

  • Create a short txt file indicating you have accessed these samples. List those that you have successfully tested with your Dose Information Reporter. If you encounter problems, contact the Project Manager who will help resolve them with Modality vendors. Upload that txt file into gazelle as the results for this test.
