If the digital program receives DSR ( Dicom SR) it means that the information goes directly into the report. The problem however is when you do other than the structured report i.e. stent, endarterectomy etc. The report will only allow proximal, mid , distal CCA, ICA, ECA and you  may need other parameters like size of bulb, origin of stent and these all have to be documented somewhere. The McKesson program does not allow for these exceptions. Make sure that the Datamax does. This is the problem I see with structured digital reporting, in vascular we so often tailor the test to the previous surgeries and procedures that have been done. As an example, how many of you have seen the bypass graft, then the revision, then the stent in the proximal vessel and on and on. There is no where to document these different areas.

Does anyone have any experience with the Datamax software (Datacheck with digital image capabilities)?  I’ve used and loved Datacheck for years, but with ICAVL needing everything digitized, we’re trying to decide between McKesson and Datamax.   My specific question is if carotid measurements cross over from HDI 5000s or does one have to type them into the Datamax report?  The IT people are talking about DICOM SR capabilities, but I’m just not that much of a computer person to understand the language.
