Paper Abstract

A model encompassing both PACS and medical records domains is described, wherein the entire patient record is represented by a collection of discrete information objects. These information objects can be stored DICOM Information Object Definitions (IODs) and the proposed HL7 Patient Record Architecture documents are found to fit this model. Relevant aspects of the both the proposed DICOM Structured Reporting and HL7 Document Patient Record Architecture standards are reviewed. The mapping of DICOM IODs to HL7 PRA documents is considered, and found to be one-to-one for all the use cases considered.
