Report Respository Tests

Contents


Report Repository Tests

The MESA tools are installed on a computer referred to as the MESA test system. The tools are written under the assumption that this computer is distinct from your Report Repository (the system under test). If you choose to run the MESA tools on the same system as your Report Repository, you are likely to have conflicts in port assignments. You will need to use different port numbers for your application because the MESA applications use hard-wired port numbers.


Introduction

Report Repositories are tested on responses to C-Find requests and C-Move requests. Each test is run using the same procedure. We assume you are using an interactive terminal or terminal emulator and are logged on to the MESA test system. Change directory to $MESA_TARGET/mesa_tests/rad/actors/rpt_repos.

Integration Profiles and Test Procedures

This document lists a number of tests for Report Repository Systems. You may not be responsible for all of these tests. Please refer to the Connectathon web tool to list the required tests for your system. The web address of this tool depends on the year and project manager. Please contact the appropriate project manager to obtain this information.

Message Values

The expected values in C-Find responses and SR objects retrieved from the Report Repository are taken directly from the SR instances loaded into the Report Repository. We do not further document these. If your responses do not match expected values, the evaluation scripts will print both your reponse and the expected value.


Configuration

The Report Repository scripts described below use an ASCII configuration file to identify parameters such as host names and port numbers. The configuration file is named rptrepos_test.cfg and is included in the directory $MESA_TARGET/mesa_tests/rad/actors/rpt_repos. Edit the file and change entries (host name, port number, AE title) which pertain to your system. Your system is identified by entries that begin with TEST. The file $MESA_TARGET/runtime/rpt_repos/ds_dcm.cfg is used to configure the MESA Report Repository. A workstation server is used as a Report Reader. The configuration file for this server is found in $MESA_TARGET/runtime/wkstation/ds_dcm.cfg. The only parameter users should change is the LOG_LEVEL value. Log levels are defined in Starting the MESA Servers. The applications listed in the table below are MESA applications that execute on the MESA test system. Configure your system to recognize these servers; you will be asked to move (C-Move) composite objects to the WORKSTATION1 application.


Application AE Title Host Port
MESA Report Repository REPORT_ARCHIVE MESA test system 2800
MESA Report Reader WORKSTATION1 MESA test system 3001
MESA Audit Record Repository MESA test system 4000

Read the Runtime Notes section of the Installation Guide to determine the proper settings for the MESA runtime environment.


Starting the MESA Servers

These instructions assume you are using a terminal emulator on Unix systems or an MS DOS command window under Windows NT. Each test uses a command line interface; there is no graphical user interface. Before you start the test procedure, you need to start the MESA Report Repository and MESA Report Reader. Make sure the appropriate database is running (PostgreSQL, SQL Server). To start the MESA servers:

1. Enter the Report Repository exam folder: mesa_tests/rad/actors/rpt_repos

2. Execute the appropriate script to start the servers:

    scripts/start_mesa_servers.csh  (Unix)
    scripts\start_mesa_servers.bat  (Windows)

When you are finished running one or more tests, you can stop the servers:

    scripts/stop_mesa_servers.csh  (Unix)
    scripts\stop_mesa_servers.bat  (Windows)

Log files are stored in $MESA_TARGET/logs. For the security tests, the MESA servers are started with different scripts. These are scripts/start_mesa_secure.csh and scripts\start_mesa_secure.bat. The log levels are the same as for the standard tests. The MESA servers are stopped using these scripts: scripts/stop_mesa_secure.csh and scripts\stop_mesa_secure.bat.


Loading Test Data

All tests will use a common set of test data. These should be loaded one time before any tests are run. You need to start the MESA servers first as described in Starting the MESA Servers. The MESA Report Repository receives a copy of the test data. You should clear your Report Repository of all data before loading the test data. Use this command to load the test SR objects into your Report Repository:

    perl  80x/load_80x.pl

Individual Tests

Test 600: SINR - Sample DICOM Reports

In this test, SINR Report Repositories will examine the sample reports provided by Report Creators. The goal of the test is to make sure the Report Repository actors are not surprised by content when they arrive at a Connectathon.

Instructions

  1. Find reports uploaded by other vendors for test 600 in gazelle under Connectathon -> List of samples. This page will evolve as vendors add samples, so be patient.
  2. Retrieve the files created by the other vendors. Examine/import/render them so that you are confident your software understands the content.
  3. You will find a table listing the systems which have submitted samples for test 600. Extract this table and place it in a spreadsheet that can be read by Excel. Create columns labelled Reviewed (Y/N) and Comments
  4. When you are finished, upload the spreadsheet as the results for this test.
  5. If you find issues with the samples, send an email to the Connectathon Manager now to wake him or her up. You can also contact the sample provider directly to resolve issues.
  6. The goal is no surprises.

Evaluation

The evaluation of this test is performed by examining the spreadsheet you provided to make sure you made a good faith effort to review the sample images.

Supplemental Information

Report Repository Test 801: Modalities In Study

The DICOM attribute 0008 0061 is named “Modalities in Study”. The 801 series tests will send four Study Level queries to the Report Repository and query on this attribute. The table below lists the four queries (a-d) and the values used for matching key. For the a query, the attribute 0008 0061 is sent as zero length, so this becomes a return key.

Query Value for Attribute 00080061
a “”
b “SR”
c “CT”
d “SR\CT”

Instructions

The d query is actually an illegal query and is included for your own testing. We do not evaluate the results of your response.

1. Start the MESA servers as decribed in Starting the MESA Servers. If you have not already loaded the test data into your system, do so as described in Loading Test Data.

2. Run the script which sends four queries to your Report Repository. This script sends the same queries to the MESA Report Repository so that we can compare results.

   perl 801/801_rptrepos.pl

Evaluation

1. Evaluate the response of your system to queries a, b, and c:

   perl 801/eval_801.pl
