Using these fields along with the PARENT DATA FILE, backward navigation is possible whether it be to a multiple of a file, or a multiple of a sub-file of a file. Each image that is captured is associated with a procedure or test report. Depending on the service collecting the image, different types of reports will be associated. For example: * Medical Procedures: Endoscopy, Dermatology, Hematology, Rheumatology, etc. * Anatomic Pathology: Surgical Pathology, Cytology, Autopsy, Electron Microscopy * Radiology: Xray, CT, MRI, Ultrasound * Surgery Operation reports * Text Integration Utility Progress notes In order to be able to display information from the associated report, references to that report are stored in the Image file. One of these references is a pointer to the Parent Report file (2005.03), which contains an entry for each package's report file that is currently supported.
.001file/subfile number11This is the actual number of a file or sub-file of a file. Some examples of the .001 field are: For Radiology Reports file it is 74, for the Message file (MailMan) it is 3.9, for Endoscopy (Medicine) 655, for Surgery 130, and for Surgical Pathology it is 63.08 (the sub-file number of Lab Data file, 63).
.01file/subfile name(+)0;1FREE TEXTBThis is the actual name of the file or sub-file of a file. Some examples would be Message, Surgery, Surgical Pathology.
.02abbreviation0;2FREE TEXTThis is the commonly used abbreviation for the file or sub-file. Some examples would be SUR, MAIL, ENDO, SP etc.
.03global root type0;3SET OF CODES1:ROOT1
This is used in the editing and deletion of image pointers in other files. Since the Image file (2005) is pointed to by a variety of files a system had to be created to enable backward navigation. The global root data types or forms have been put into three groups: ROOT1 - like "^RARPT("; "^SRO("; "^LR("; ROOT2 - like "^XMB(3.9,"; "^MCAR(699," ROOT3 - like "^LR(D0,""SP""," SUB-FILE of ^LR( (where D0 = LRDFN)
.04file pointer0;4POINTER1This is the parent file pointing to ^DIC( - in most cases it will also be the .001 field since it will be a parent file itself. But in the case of sub-files, like the laboratory sub-files, it will not be the .001 field, but the number of the parent file. For example the Radiology entry has 74 for the .001 field and 74 for this field. However the Surgical Pathology entry has 68.03 for the .001 field, and 63 for the .04 field.
40package index2;1SET OF CODESRAD:RAD
This is the abbreviation of the application (package) that the image is attached to.
41class index2;2POINTER2005.82The classification of the image. CLASS is an index field used for sorting and searching.
42type index2;3POINTER2005.83The TYPE of image. TYPE is an index field used for sorting and searching.
43proc/event index2;4POINTER2005.85The PROCEDURE/EVENT for the image. PROCEDURE/EVENT is an index field used for sorting and searching.
44spec/subspec index2;5POINTER2005.84The SPECIALTY/SUBSPECIALTY of the image. SPECIALTY/SUBSPECIALTY is an index field used for sorting and searching.
45origin index2;6SET OF CODESV:VA
This field indicates whether an image or document originated inside or outside of VA.
