Process Siemens Arcadis C-Arm dose reports

Issue #433 new
Ed McDonagh created an issue

Add import routines to recognise and import data from Siemens Arcadis C-Arms with software version VC10A.

DICOM conformance statement is here: Arcadis VC10A

Uses object type EnhancedSRStorage and can be identified by having a container with the following:

  • CodeValue: C-10
  • CodingSchemeDesignator: 99SMS_RADSUM
  • CodeMeaning: Radiation Summary Report

The report is at a high level, but useful nonetheless. It contains the following according to the conformance statement:

  • Cumulative fluoro time in seconds
  • Cumulative dose area product in Gy·cm²
  • DateTime of the start and end of the examination
  • Cumulative air kerma in Gy, if configured.

In addition, the example of this report sent to me by Rachid Boucenna also includes a sequence for the total number of exposures.

    Added explanatory comment to MG, DX and FL series pruning. Removed code to delete 'other' SR types as this will have already been done. FL retains ESR even though we can't currently process them as we will need this for Siemens Arcardis when ref #433 is dealt with. Will help make ref #506 easier to write! Refs #472.
