Imaging is a subscriber to the protocol entry GMRC EVSEND OR (Consults event sent to OE/RR) and evaluates all HL7 message segments received from this protocol. When an ORC message segment is received for a signed result (signed TIU note) then a module is called to lookup the entry in this file for possible matches and once found will update the image entry in the Image file with it's associated parent report and file the image pointer in the associated parent report. The matched entry is then deleted from this file.
.01file number(+)0;1SET OF CODES123:Consults/Requests
BThe value of this field is a pointer to a file. Since this field may point only to a very limited number of files, the datatype for this field is a SET OF CODES, rather than a pointer to the File of Files. Currently, the only possible value is 123 (Consults).
2entry number(+)0;2NUMERICThe value of this field is a pointer into a file. The file number of the file into which this field points is stored as the value of field FILE NUMBER. Since this value is not a "variable pointer", nor a "normal pointer", the data type of this field is NUMBER, not POINTER.
3image(+)0;3POINTER2005The value of this field is a pointer into the Image File (2005). The image that is being pointed to is usually the group-parent of the group of images that is linked to the entity in the temporary file. (When the image group consists of one single image, that image won't have a "group parent", and this field will point to the image itself.)
