This article applies to all modalities except radiation oncology.
The ACRedit Web Client requires no download or installation of any software to your computer or network. An internet connection and access to the images on your computer hard drive, network or CD/DVD/thumb drive are required. The ACRedit Web Client requires the use of an up-to-date web browser. The following browsers (current version) are supported:
When the ACRedit Web Client option is selected, you may view supported file types for each modality, get further instructions, upload, and then view images. DICOM images are required for most modalities but preferred for all modalities.
When "Upload Images" is selected, a new window will open allowing you to navigate to the image folders/files for upload. If you choose the "Upload Image Folder" option, you will not see the files in the folders. When the "Upload Image Files" option is selected you will be able to see all the files in the folder. Each series of a study will likely be stored in separate folders.
A progress bar will appear as files/folders are uploaded. Please note that it may take a few seconds before the word “uploading” appears. Once the images are uploaded, series or entire studies may be removed by clicking the trash can symbol.
After all the exams have been uploaded, you must view the images. This can be done by clicking the “View Images” link, which will launch the NilRead DICOM viewer displaying the uploaded images for the specific study, or by clicking “View All DICOM Images” to see all the studies that have been uploaded for that exam.
It is important to view all the uploaded images prior to submitting the testing package to ensure all required images have been uploaded and can be viewed successfully. In addition, all MRI phantom images and MAP and BUAP mammography clinical DICOM images, must be evaluated with the NilRead DICOM viewer to ensure that proper measurements can be obtained. Measurements in the form of a number in mm must be available for MRI phantom images utilizing the ROI Ellipse tool and for MAP and BUAP mammography DICOM clinical images, using the ruler measurement tool. If you cannot view the images in the NilRead DICOM viewer or establish proper measurements on the MRI phantom or MAP or BUAP mammography clinical DICOM images, do NOT submit the images.
When you have finished uploading and have viewed the images for that examination, check the “Ready for Submission” box to the right of that exam. In addition, you must attest that the supervising/lead interpreting physician has reviewed the images prior to submitting them.
