Duplicate display names for GE OEC Fluorostar mobile fluoroscopy system

Issue #908 resolved
David Platten created an issue

A GE OEC Fluorostar system has recently been configured so that DICOM RDSR objects can be sent to OpenREM. This works, but each study sent creates a new entry in the Display Name table. This seems to be because each study uses a different Device Observer UID. My understanding is that this field should be unique to the equipment, but for this system it changes for each study.

It is very unlikely that I will be able to change the data being sent from the system, so would like a solution built into OpenREM.

We could add a section to the local_settings.py:


Then in rdsr.py before the equip_display_name is created:

from django.conf import settings
if device_observer_uid in settings.IGNORE_DEVICE_OBSERVER_UID_FOR_THESE_MODELS:
    device_observer_uid = None

May need to add the above into the other extractors too.

    Is it a maintained/current model? Might it be fixed in a future software release?

    We’d need to add it to the .env.prod docket file too.

    The system is serviced by a third-party company. I have contacted them to report the issue, and asked for contact details of the manufacturer so I can report it directly.

    Added a setting to contain a list of equipment models where the Device Observer UID must be ignored when creating display name data during RDSR import. Refs issue #908

    @Ed McDonagh would you like me to add this to the .env.prod file in the Docker repository?

  5. Ed McDonagh

    Yes please. This is where it can get complicated… I think you should create a issue908ignoreDeviceObserverUID branch in that repo too, and if/when we merge in this repo, we remember to merge into develop in that repo too. Hmm. Not a pretty workflow.

    Correcting error in logic: I need to see if the current RDSR is in the ignore list, not check if the device observer uid is in the list. Doh. I can confirm that this code works. Refs issue #908
