Bahmni supports two ways of managing Radiology workflows:
Via Manual Radiology Upload - here the clinician uploads a photograph of the xRay film
Using PACS Integration - here the modality(machine) automatically stores a digital representation of the xRay/Radiology image in the DICOM format in a PACS server. In this mode, Bahmni users can use a DICOM viewer (like Oviyam) to browse radiology images from within Bahmni UI. DCM4Chee acts as a PACS server for storing all DICOM images.
In this training, we will learn about the Bahmni PACS integration.
