The QC Station provides a single location where all studies can be verified and where changes can be made and documents added before being sent to PACS.
The QC Station includes all the functionality that the technologist needs to perform his or her final review tasks, including tools to allow him or her to make necessary changes to the study being reviewed.
Upon receipt, the study is validated against the study order in the RIS and any errors are flagged. If the modality sending the study does not support MWL, the order can be queried from the MWL server and applied to the study at this point. Images can be removed, the order of series can be changed, and studies can be merged or split. When all changes are made, a final validation is performed against the RIS, the worklist step is advanced, and the study is sent to PACS.
