I’m working on a project where we’re collecting data from multiple labs around the state and multiple types of images. Some are angiograms, some are ivus images (I’m not a medical professional, so this is a little out of my norm).
That being said, I’d like I way to keep these separated. When I upload the files through the API, orthanc seems to be able to scrape some data out of the files to know what patient/study they below to. This is great until I get IVUS images in the same group as angiograms. Some sites have them separated, some don’t.
My ultimate goal is to separate them, and I’m wondering if I can force a fake study or patient ID with my uploads. It’s all controlled through an API, so assigning them unique IDs won’t be a problem at all.
I’m looking at the documentation, and I can’t see anything that looks like it might help.
If I can’t force a fake (controlled fake) patient/study, is there a way I can keep these images separated? Or is there something I can add to the instructions for the sites preparing these images?
