Setting up a server for file sharing

All images are sent to either the Eyercloud system or a user configured server. To establish a connection to a server, click on “Options”, then “Servers”, followed by selecting the icon and choosing the appropriate server type.

These settings are required regardless of the type of server being configured:

1. Action: Defines the behaviour of the server (when to share the data):
        Primary: Default server used by Eyercloud. Cannot be removed, only disabled.
        Mirror: All the data generated by the device will be sent to the primary server and any mirror(s) configured.
        Contingency: Used only in case of Primary server failure.
        Manual: not used automatically, but is available for manual transfer.
2. Name: server identifier, is NOT unique.
3. Key: Generated automatically based o nthe server name. Unique and follow the format of three upper case letters (A to Z), followed by a dash (-), followed by three numbers (0 to 9)..




To utilize a DICOM server add the storage server information (Archive AE), or the Worklist server information.

  1. AE Title: application identification in the system.
  1.    AET: server identifier.
  1.    IP: server IP address.
  1.    Port: server port.
  1.    Modality: only used in worklist context, represents DICOM tile type.

Every exam can be converted to DICOM standard, generating a .dcm file. The file generated  contains the following tags:

  • PatientID → Generated using the clinic mandatory document, using the “DICOM Prefix”  in the Eyer system screen. Example: for a clinic registered with a CNS medical record, a DICOM file with PatientID value “phelcom_cnsPatient” will be generated.
  • PatientComments → Has a JSON structure with patient anamnesis and diopter information.
