Tags in conditions
Copy the link Copied! copy-docs

There is a possibility to specify Conditions for Group, Study, Prior study and Instance level. Condition tags can be selected in drop-down list. Values can be numeric or string type:

  • The operands list for numeric tags: “=”, “>”, “<“, “>=”, “<=”, “!=”;
  • The operands list for string tags: “match”, “not_match”, “begins_with”, “end_with”, “contain”.

Group conditions:

1 – the series or instance serial number is used in condition instead of values of DICOM tags (0020,0011) or (0020,0013);
2 – check the DICOM standard or see “Tags in modalities” sheet, if the particular tag is applicable for the modality.

Notes:
– group conditions are evaluated until the first group that matches the study is found;
– the DICOM file values from the first image of the first series are used when evaluating conditions;
– PR and KO series are ignored, but having SR series as the first series in CT or other study will apply the SR modality group.

– prior study conditions are evaluated until the first study that matches conditions is found in patient’s historical studies;
– the viewport is left empty if matching historical study is not found.
