5. Setting the Network and the Internal Section of the Main Unit
Printlink is a system that supports to multiple input modalities and output imagers. Set the entire system prior to initiating the installation of each input I/F. The following settings are required to set the entire system. 1. Setting the network. 2. Setting the Install PC 3. Setting the IP address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway.

Print Management System Printlink Installation and Service Manual Ver.1.0 2000.12

5. Setting the Network and the Internal Section of the Main Unit

5.1 Setting the Network


Design the system configuration and make certain that all necessary equipment for setting the network is available. Furthermore, if the system is going to be complicated with an incorporation of a router, etc., leave such work to the person in charge.

5.1.1 Selecting the cable


For Printlink, use the (UTP) twisted pair cable (category 5) or higher. Note: Check local requirements for Phlymim cables

5.1.2 Selecting the hubs and switches


Hubs and switches are required when the network is set up for the first time or when more than one device is going to be installed. Please note the following points in such cases. 1. Capable of switching automatically between 10BASE-T and 100BASE-T

100BASET is required when the transfer speed between Printlinks is considered. Since some devices can only support
10BASET, ones that can switch automatically should be selected. 2. Open ports for future usage It is assumed that there will be more devices to connect to the network in the future. Therefore, a hub with more than the necessary number of ports at the time of purchase should be selected (including the Install / service PC - Laptop). 3. Switching function The switching function provides many advantages. With this function, high-speed communication, reduction in network traffic, as well as reduction of hub restriction within one segment becomes capable. When purchasing a new hub, please select one which comes with a switching function. 4. Stackable hub Hubs can be increased without decreasing ports, as hubs can be connected without using a port. Please purchase a device which fulfills the conditions in Items 1 to 3 above. For Item 4, judge whether these conditions are necessary per each facility.

5.1.3 Items to note for cascade connections between hubs


A cross cable is used for cascade connection using a normal port. However, a straight cable can be used if a cascade exclusive port exists. In such a case, connect one end of the cable to the cascade exclusive port, and the other end to a normal port. The exclusive port for cascade acts as a cross converter. Be sure not to connect both ends to the cascade exclusive port.

5.1.4 Items to note when connecting hubs that do not possess a switching function
There are limitations when making cascade connections for hubs that do not have a switching function. Only four levels for 10BASE, and two levels for 100BASE can be connected within one segment. Please be careful when making a connection to a network inside the hospital. Ask the hospital IS dept. for support in advance of configuring the Prinlink systems.

5.1.5 Wiring
Wiring must be performed at each facility.

5.3 Setting the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway


5.3.1 Obtaining an IP address
Confirm with the hospital and obtain an IP address before connecting each Printlink to the network. The default IP address is set as 10.32.15.x (x = last 1 digits of the serial number). Therefore, the IP address must be changed according to the local environment before connections are made to the hospital network. The default Subnet Mask is 255.255.240.0 NOTE: If a device with a same IP address is connected to the network, an network error will occur and a connection will not be able to be made. Confirm the IP address of the Printlink Install PC with the network manager of the hospital.

5.3.2 Setting the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway


The IP Address, subnet mask, and default gateway must be checked when making connections to the hospital network. (For a local network only for Printlink, the default setting can be applied.) Confirm the settings for the Printlink network IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway with the hospital network manager. (In some cases, the network is managed by the manufacturer of the diagnostic device.)

If the phase is skewed, the following problems derive, and the CP phase will need to be readjusted. The DC level of TP11 (A/D) wobbles in V cycle (jitters appear in the image). Jitters appear in the HD. Jitters in the PLL lock do not decrease.

Set delay from the installation software with values from 0 to 255 in 0.5ns increment. NOTE: For external clock, set values from 0 to 15 in 2ns increment. b) Adjusting Method Adjust video delay following the procedure below. NOTE: Remove the oscilloscope probe from the board when making the adjustment. 1. Set approx. 12 frames for the format. If there are too many frames, the image size becomes small which will make it difficult to find the optimum delay value. 2. Enter the setup screen of the modality controller which is to be adjusted.

3. The screen will change to the maintenance screen by pressing the top left and bottom left corners simultaneously for 1 second or more. Then enter the Video Test screen by pressing the arrow key on the top section of the screen.

Fig. 8.12 Video Test Screen 4. The contents of the parameter are described below. [INITIAL DELAYTIME] is the value of initial delay. The value set here becomes the delay time for the first frame. [INTERVAL TIME] is the increased delay time per one store. [START] is the switch to start the video test. The screen switches to a normal screen when pressed. Different delay images are automatically stored one frame at a time, and is printed when one page worth is stored. 5. Set the value for [INITIAL DELAYTIME] and [INTERVAL TIME]. The actual delay time is listed below. For internal clock 0.5ns increment 0-127ns (Max) For external clock 2ns increment 0-30ns (Max) NOTE: For external clock, the delay range can be changed from 30ns to 60ns with the jumper setting. To proceed with the test, first determine the [INITIAL DELAYTIME] and [INTERVAL TIME] so that they cover the entire pixel clock cycle range, then print it out. Confirm the entire trend from the results, and find the delay value with only a slight disturbance in the image. Next, change the delay value in detail near the value found in the previous step, and print it out. Continue this procedure until an optimum delay value is found. The following is an example: 1. Check the pixel clock of the modality subjected to the video test. The value is set to 55MHz in the example. 2. Calculate the cycle of the pixel clock. The value is 18.2ns (55MHz-1) in the example. 3. Divide the cycle of the pixel clock by 12. (As the format is set to 12 frames,) The value is approx. 1.5ns in the example.

4. Input the solution obtained in Step 3 as the value for [INTERVAL TIME]. [4]=2ns is input in the example. If this value becomes larger than [4], divide it into 2 sheets. 1st Sheet: [INITIAL DELAYTIME] = 0, [INTERVAL TIME] = 4 2nd Sheet: [INITIAL DELAYTIME] = 48 (4x12), [INTERVAL TIME] = 4 With this setting, delay has been set to the entire range. 5. Press [START] to start the video test. Be sure to remove the probe of the oscilloscope from the board when conducting this test. 6. Find the optimum delay value from the printed image data. 7. If a sufficient image was not obtained, decrease the [INTERVAL TIME] and repeat the video test. 8. Delay can only be set at 2ns increment during external clock, so perform the video test by setting 1 for the [INTERVAL TIME]. The relation between the print image data and delay value is described below. For instance, when 4 is set for the [INITIAL DELAYTIME] and 5 for the [INTERVAL TIME] in a 12-frame format, delay will be changed and stored as shown in the figure below when [START] is pressed.

9.6 Checking the Transfer Signal of the Digital I/F


The timing of the digital I/F signal can be checked with a logic analyzer. It can be confirmed whether signals are being output by checking the waveform.

9.6.1 Waveform of digital I/F signal


Transfer data of the digital I/F are digital data with parallel image data, and are sent in 1H increment. The image size is sent with the 1st line being the header. Data is sent in 1H increment, and the output side will start sending the data when the input side sets the Request signal to Hi. The input side obtains one image by repeating the Hi/Lo setting for Request corresponding to the number of header + V size. The timing of each signal differs according to the device. STROBE at 1s cycle (1MB/s) is the standard timing.

NOTE: Remove the oscilloscope probe from the board when making the adjustment. 1. Set the format to approx. 12 frames. If there are too many frames, the image size becomes small and will make it difficult to find the optimum delay value. 2. Enter the Set Up screen of the modality controller which is to be adjusted.

3. The screen will change to the maintenance screen by pressing the top left and bottom left corners simultaneously for 1 second or longer. Then enter the Video Test screen by pressing the arrow key on the upper section of the screen.

Fig. 10.11 Video Test Screen 4. The contents of the parameter are described below [INITIAL DELAYTIME] is the initial delay value. This value becomes the delay time for the first frame. [INTERVAL TIME] is the increased delay time per one store. [START] is a button to start the video test. When this button is pressed, the screen switches to the initial screen. Different delay images are automatically stored one frame at a time, and is printed out when all images are stored in one page. 5. Set the value for [INITIAL DELAYTIME] and [INTERVAL TIME]. The actual delay time is listed below. For clock 1ns increment 0-15ns (Max) To proceed with the test, first determine the [INITIAL DELAYTIME] and [INTERVAL TIME] so that they cover the entire range of the pixel clock cycle, then print it out. Confirm the entire trend from the results, and find a delay value with only a slight disturbance in the image. Next, change the delay value in detail near the value found in the previous step, and print it out. Continue this procedure until an optimum delay value is found. The following is an example:

c) Checking method 1. Check the pixel clock of the modality subjected to the video test. The value is set to 55MHz in the example. 2. Obtain the cycle of the pixel clock. The value is 18.2ns (55MHz-1) in the example. 3. Divide the cycle of the pixel clock by 12. (As the format is set to 12 frames,) The value is approx. 1.5ns in the example. 4. Input the solution obtained in Step 3 as the value for [INTERVAL TIME]. [4]=2ns is the value in the example. If this value becomes larger than [4], divide it into 2 sheets. 1st Sheet: [INITIAL DELAYTIME] = 0, [INTERVAL TIME] = 4 2nd Sheet: [INITIAL DELAYTIME] = 48 (4x12), [INTERVAL TIME] = 4 With this setting, delay has been set to the entire range. 5. Press the [START] button to start the video test. Be sure to remove the probe of the oscilloscope from the board when conducting this test. 6. Find the optimum delay value from the printed image data. 7. If a sufficient image was not obtained, decrease the [INTERVAL TIME] and repeat the video test. The relation between the print image data and delay value is described below. For instance, when 4 is set as the [INITIAL DELAYTIME] and 5 as the [INTERVAL TIME] in a 12-frame format, delay will be changed and stored as shown in the figure below when [START] is pressed.

TP15 (FB) Enlarge this range and adjust.

Set the time axis for the oscilloscope at a small value. TP14 (trigger) Adjust at RV1(FIL1) This deflection is called a jitter. Increase the brightness of the oscilloscope. This deflection causes skewed pixels.

TP15

Adjust RV1 (FIL1) so that the jitter of TP15 (FB) is the minimum value (2ns or less). * If the jitter is not minimized, perform "b) Adjusting the PLL-2". b) Adjusting the PLL-2 (For adjusting RV2 and RV3) This adjustment is made when the jitters do not decrease even when performing the adjustment described in the prior section. a) Although difficult, a more detailed adjustment can be made. NOTE: Sufficient adjustment can usually be made without applying this method. Please avoid using this method when there is no problem. This adjustment is made by changing the jumper and volume, but as there is no orientation to this adjustment, find the optimum position by adjusting in various patterns indicated below.

(5) Checking PLL
Adjusting PLL is not required under normal operations. However, when the signal speed is too slow (approx. 90MHz), readjusting PLL may be needed. Therefore, be sure to check the signal speed. Apply a trigger (startup) at TP23 (FB), and display TP23 (FB) and TP 22 (FA) as shown in the figure below. If the jitter is 2ns or more, adjust RV8 (FIL) so that the jitter becomes 2ns or less.

(6) Adjusting delay
The delay value of the video HG I/F is determined with the setting value of the install software and the setting of the JP1 clock (NOR/INV). Delay value = (Setting value of install software x 0.5ns) Install software JP1 setting Delay value : 0-7.5 (0-7.5ns) : NOR/INV (phase reverse function) : 0-7.5ns (JP1 NOR) 7.5-15ns (JP1 INV) For more detailed information on the delay value, refer to *1 in Section 11.4.4 (2). a) Procedure 1. Check that JP1 is set to "NOR". 2. Set the format to approx. 12 frames. If the format is set to too many frames, a small image appears, which makes it difficult to find a proper delay value. Note: For an image with many pixels, it is difficult to check the image. So, set the small number of the frame. 3. Touch the upper-left corner and the lower-left corner on the Set Up screen simultaneously over 1 sec. to switch into the Maintenance screen. Then, touch the arrow key on the upper portion of the screen to enter the VIDEO TEST screen. On this screen, the frames can be stored while the delay values are changed automatically. Set the delay value and touch [START] to store the frame while the delay value is increased automatically one-frame by one-frame.

Fig. 11.10 VIDEO TEST screen The following shows the description of each parameter. "INITIAL DELAYTIME" shows the delay value of the first frame. "INTERVAL TIME" shows the increased value of the delay value for each frame. Touching [START] switches into the normal screen, and stores the frames on one page automatically while the delay value is increased one-frame by one- frame, then prints the stored frame.

11. Setting the Video HG I/F


4. Set "INITIAL DELAYTIME" to "0" and "INTERVAL TIME" to "1" and touch [START] to print the stored frame. This sets the delay to 0-6ns (0.5 x 12 frames / 0.5ns increments). * If the image is hard to see, decrease the number of the frame to make one frame larger. 5. Set JP1 to "INV". 6. Set "INITIAL DELAYTIME" to "0" and "INTERVAL TIME" to "1" and touch [START] to print the stored frame. This sets the delay to 6-12ns (0.5 x 12 frames / 0.5ns increments). 7. Continue printing out images with the settings of JP1 and DELAYTIME, and the delay value is set up to 10ns for 100MHz (For 130MHz, 1/130MHz = 7.7ns). 8. Check the printed image with a magnifying glass, and set an optimum delay value of the frame with the install software. Do not change JP1. Write the value of JP1 in [Memo] in the install software.

The format data file for Li-7/7A/8, Li-10A, Li-21, Li-62P, Li1417D/DH, and DRYPRO722 comes with the Printlink install software (FORMATKC.DAT). 1. Check the format that each imager connected to the Printlink can receive. Set the format file for Li-10A and Li-21 so that the imager can receive all the formats of the image size of 640 x 512. Set the default value for Li-7/7A/8. 2. Search a maximum image size in the modality that is input into the Printlink. When Li-7/7A/8 is included within the output imager; (Maximum image size x Number of frames) > Memory capacity comes with the digital I/F of the Li-7 In the case above, the set number of frames cannot be received. When Li-7 is not included within the output imager; The image data can be received as the contents of the format file that is created with MKFF12. 3. When multiple imagers are connected, only the format that all the imagers can receive can be selected. ("and" for all the imagers should be left out.) If the format data that Imager B can receive, but Imager A cannot, is transferred into Imager A while Imager A is used for backing up Imager B, the data that Imager A cannot receive is not output. In order to prevent such case, this limitation is needed. Click the [FORMAT] while the Change Channel Data dialog box appears. The Set Format Data dialog box will be displayed.

12.5.2 DICOM multi-byte
Since the DICOM is a developed model from the ACR-NEMA, the valid parameter is only ASCII characters. In Japan, in order to use Kanji or Kana, the DICOM multi-byte is devised. The following shows the procedure for using Kanji and Kana. Note: The multi-byte is for the Japanese version only. 1. Register sets of characters. Register characters that you wish to use in an association (each command) in advance. The default setting is ASCII characters only. To use single-byte Kana, set ISO 2022 IR13 and to use Kanji, set ISO 2022 IR87. Characters can be registered as many as you wish, but each set of characters should be separated by "\" as a character string. Various kinds of character sets are defined in the DICOM standards. 2. Change the sets of character (registered characters) used for each tag and output them. Change the sets of character with the ESC sequence. When you start to enter the data of tag, the ASCII code is always selected. So, if you want to use Kanji, output ESC 04 02 and then output Kanji in JIS code. If necessary, the type of characters can be changed as frequently as you wish in each tag. 3. Since the name such as Patient Name is special, the forms below are followed. The name should be described using three sets of characters shown below, connecting them by "=", and are output as one character string. (Name described using a single byte) = (Name described using ideographic characters) = (Name described using phonetic characters) If the output device does not support the multi-byte output, an error occurs. So, be sure to check that the output device supports the multi-byte output before operation. The Printlink input supports the multi-byte.

12.5.3 Checking items associated with Storage upon character recognition


Check the following items associated with DICOM Storage upon character recognition. Configuration of entire system Operation/limitation of the receiving devices Handling recognition errors The following explains the checking items above.

(1)

Configuration of entire system


a) Which device does the Printlink output data into ? -> Check the image viewer, manufacturer of the server, and version in order to confirm that the connection test with the Printlink has been performed. b) What does a user wish to do ? -> Confirm what a user wish to do. Do not make more settings than a user expects. A user just wants to save the data in the image server: Search keys at the server (e.g. Only patient ID is required, etc.) With what does a user want to search ?: Check the usage, exposure date, reception number, and name, and set only the necessary items. A user just wants to see with a viewer: Recognition errors on parameters may not be a problem. Re-exposure is required or not, etc.

12. Setting the Output I/F


(2) Operation/limitation of the receiving devices
a) What is required as a search key of data ? -> Confirm with a manager of an image server, etc. Or ask a person in charge at a hospital what is set as a search key. The search key should be included in patient ID, Name, and Other 1, 2. b) Is there necessary items or parameters at the image server (viewers, etc.) ? -> If the image is not transmitted, check to see if there are any items that work improperly at the server. Also, check the contents of the parameters (e.g. the number of data bytes, type of characters, and special character strings, etc.). Then, check if those contents are matched to the character recognition results. c) Is the re-exposed image transmitted from the server ? -> Since the parameter of the Print conditions are affected by the settings of the network controller as shown in the previous section, perform the test to check that a proper image is output. In order to change the Print conditions for each image, it is necessary to change them with the network controller. d) e) Is LUT data needed at the image server ? -> If necessary, set OUTPUT VOI LUT to Go with the Storage output CH. Is a comparison made ? -> Check the parameters for comparison and set them with the Printlink. Check the operation when a comparison error occurs. Refer to (3). f) Is the multi-byte output necessary or not ? -> If necessary, set this item. After setting, be sure to perform the test. Note: The multi-byte is for the Japanese version only. g) How to deal with Study ? -> Is there anything that can be complied into Study ? : Check the patient ID, patient name, reception number, and association unit of DICOM. What is a condition to change Study ? : Check the time and others when the Patient ID is changed.

(3)

Handling recognition errors


a) Can output character strings contain "?" upon recognition errors ? -> Confirm with an image server. The operations performed when the output character string contains "?" should be clarified (e.g. The image cannot be saved; The image is integrated with other error images; No problem; Reception is not possible until a user changes the data, etc.) Check to see that there is no problem considering the system or a user demand. b) How to deal with the system upon recognition errors ? -> When recognition errors cannot be allowed: Recognize only reliable items, such as ID. Or operate with controller input of only ID. Even if a recognition error occurs, it can be changed before operation: Check the result when it is stored, and change it with the controller. Do not mind even if a recognition error occurs: The data can be changed at the server, or a user does not mind an error since it is a viewer.

12.5.4 Operation of Other 1, 2 (Ver. 1.10)
The characters are recognized at four points in a film from Ver. 1.10. In order to recognize two points except ID and NAME properly and perform DICOM output (Storage), it is necessary to set the Printlink install software and OCR install software properly. Set the character recognition of Other 1, 2. Use the same method as the recognition of ID and NAME.

Set Other 1, 2 of the DS_OUT channel of the Printlink install software. Select the tag on the DICOM into which the recognized result is input.

Important: Since the Printlink outputs the recognized character strings as they are, the character strings should be matched to the output form of each tag of the DICOM.

(1) Algorithm of output


Unlike the ID and NAME, the character strings in Other 1, 2 are not output as they are recognized. The internal Printlink outputs data in the following order (concept). a) b) c) When the result of the recognized characters is matched to the DICOM standards; -> Outputs the recognized result. When the result of the recognized characters is not matched to the DICOM standards; -> Outputs only the tag. (The actual data is not output.) When the characters are not recognized (Character recognition: OFF), and the tag set in Other 1, 2 is always the same as the tag output from the Printlink (e.g. Study Date, etc.); -> The data added with the Printlink is inserted into the concerned tag, and output. Currently there is a tag of fixed output with no data (length=0). (The same operation when "None" is set into Other 1, 2.) d) When the characters are not recognized (Character recognition: OFF), and the tag set in Other 1, 2 is the one that is not usually added with the Printlink (e.g. Accession Number, etc.): -> Outputs only the tag. (The actual data is not output.)

13.4 Bit Conversion


(1) Description
This function converts the length of data for input and output. This is added from the Printlink Ver. 1.04 and the install software Ver.1.04. When the internal Printlink performs LUT processing while the imager with 12-bit input is installed, the setting of input is converted to 12 bits.

When the DRYPRO722 is installed, You must set to 12 bits. The following shows how to set to 12 bits.
The setting is made when installing the software. Select 8bits or 12 bits in [Output pixels] of all input protocol of the install software. When 12 bits is selected, 8-bit input data is converted into 12 bits, and 12-bit input data is processed as it is.

(2)

Note: Caution on connection


Perform LUT upon input. When performing LUT in the Printlink, change the bit conversion from 8 bits to 12 bits. Save 12-bit data image as 12-bit data. Prepare an I/F or cable for 12-bit input of Li-8, 10A, 21, 62P.

(3) Method of settings
Make all the settings with the maintenance software except connecting cables, etc. 1. Set the LUT with the maintenance software. 2. Set the Convert LUT of the channel to ON. 3. Change the Output Pixels with the input channel to 12 bits. Now the data is saved in the bit format specified in the Output Pixels. (When set to 8 bits, the data is saved as the 8-bit data, and set to 12 bits, as the 12-bit data.) When the settings are made as shown in Fig. 13.11, the data in the Printlink of Video IN is saved as 12-bit data, and the data in the Printlink of the DICOM PRINT IN is also saved as 12-bit data. When "8 bits" is specified in the DICOM PRINT IN, the 12-bit receiving data is saved as 8-bit data, and some information will be lost.

The reason why the bit conversion is needed:


When performing the LUT conversion, if the data lengths for input and output are the same, this will lower the levels of the gradation. Therefore, it is necessary to convert bits. However, the bit conversion is not needed for the linear setting. Conversion from 8 bits to 8 bits

Magnified Input

121 120 152

Output

Even when the calculated value is 152.3, since 8-bits system does not indicate the fractional portions of the number, 152.3 is considered 152. This value is the same as the one which is obtained when the input value is 120.

Since there is no concept of format/print for STORAGE input, the following timing is considered as the separation of pages. a) When the association of STORAGE input ends. b) When all the formats set with the network controller are filled. Timing for printing is the end of the association of the STORAGE input. Assuming that the Printlink operates with the setting of one association equating to one study, when the one association ends, several pages are printed out. Note: When the formats are sent from the Konica DICOM, they are ignored.

(3)

Print conditions
The print conditions are the ones set with the network controller. Note: The conditions of Konica DICOM are ignored.

This section describes how to determine the imagers or filing devices into which the input diagnostic device (in the example, GCA901, SOMATOM, FLEXART) outputs the data. The output destination should be the imagers: one is used under normal conditions and the other that serves as backup. In the example on the previous page, the imagers that receive the image sent from GCA901 should be as follows: Normal conditions For backup For filing Normal conditions For backup Normal conditions For backup : Li-21 (Printlink-OD) : Li-62P (DICOM), Li-1417DH : Filing device : Li-62P (DICOM) : Li-21 (Printlink-OD), Li-1417DH : Li-1417DH : Li-21 (Printlink-OD), Li-62P (DICOM)

The imagers that receive the image sent from SOMATOM should be as follows:

INPUT: 1 OUTPUT1: 2 192.168.2.14 OUTPUT2: 0 The channels above are the route by which the image is output from the GCA901 to the Li-21. Multiple output imagers from the input modality can be defined. Likewise, from GCA901 to Li-62P INPUT: 1 OUTPUT1: 3 192.168.2.15 OUTPUT2: 0 Likewise, from GCA901 to Li-1417DH INPUT: 1 OUTPUT1: 4 192.168.2.16 OUTPUT2: 0 Likewise, from GCA901 to Filing INPUT: 1 OUTPUT1: 5 192.168.2.17 OUTPUT2: 0 Likewise, from GCA901 to Li-21 and Filing 2 output INPUT: 1 OUTPUT1: 2 192.168.2.14 OUTPUT2: 5 192.168.2.17 2. From the output imagers determined in Step 1, select one to be set as the default after installation, and make its route an "active route". 3. Name each route determined in Step 1. A maximum 8 characters (single-byte) can be set for the route name. This name will appear as "OUTPUT Imager" when the output destination is switched on the Printlink controller. Therefore, the name that is easy to understand for a user (the name of the output imager, etc.) should be given. In the example, the output imager name is given to the route name.

19. Setting the Character Recognition


19.1 Character Recognition
The character recognition means that the name and ID described on the film that is read from the input modality such as the video, digital and network, or the information (Other 1 and 2) that can be set with the DICOM STORAGE, are read from the image data. The read data is affected on the stamp on the film, and is used as the directory name for saving images in the system or as a search key for searching the image.

19.2 Algorithm of Character Recognition


In order to perform the character recognition, it is necessary to register the bit patterns of the alphanumerics, symbols, and Kana characters as a dictionary file in advance. (The Kana characters are for the Japanese version only.) Since the background and characters have to be separated on an image, a pixel value (threshold) for separating those should be also registered. This is called a binary logic, and the background and the characters are converted into the data values of 0 and 255 using this threshold. The character recognition routine is performed as 8-bit data. Therefore, a 12-bit image is converted into an 8-bit image. There are some methods to separate characters from the image data. Basically, when there is a spacing of more than one pixel between characters, the spacing is recognized as a character. When the bit patterns on the input image data is matched to those in the dictionary, characters are recognized properly. Since the positions of characters on the film are fixed, it is necessary to register this position data in advance. The file that contains the data to be registered in advance for the character recognition is called the character recognition install data (mji file). This file is set with the character recognition install software, and is transferred with the Printlink maintenance software.

19.3 Limitations of Character Recognition


Some errors may occur upon the character recognition due to the following reasons: characters cannot be separated from other images because of overlapping; similar characters such as ' I 'and ' 1 ' are set to the same bit pattern; there is noise of video signals. Basically, the character string to be recognized is one line. Therefore, the character recognition may not be performed properly when a character string has multiple lines. In order to make the character recognition properly, these limitations should be considered, and the preliminary research such as the type of font, position, and the usage of the character recognition results should be conducted.

The character recognition install data is configured as shown in the figure below. The modality data and the dictionary data can be saved individually. If the saved data is kept in a library, it can be used when the same system and modality are set for the character recognition. Entire install data The comment, the number of modalities, the number of dictionaries and others for Printlink-ID and -IV Data of CH01 Image size, the position of the frame to be recognized, the position of the character string to be recognized, the dictionary to be used, and comments, etc. x n pcs.

Fig. 19.1 Configuration of Character Recognition Install Data Since there are multiple dictionaries, it is possible to set different dictionaries for each of image size, name, ID, and Other 1 and 2. Conversely, even when the image size, name and ID are different, there is only one dictionary in the install data if the fonts are the same. The install data is set for referring to only one dictionary.

19.7 Outline of Preliminary Research of Character Strings To Be Recognized and Settings of Character Recognition System
19.7.1 Preliminary research of character strings to be recognized
(1) Confirmation items with the server when performing the DICOM STRAGE output to the server, etc.
Refer to the chapter of Storage.

(2)

Confirmation items with a hospital


a) Confirmation items on ID, Name, Other 1 and 2 b) What parameter to be character-recognized ? Ex) ID only ? Both ID and Name ?, etc. The number of characters ? What type of characters ? Ex) Number + hyphen for ID, and alphabets only for Name, etc.

Confirming of the frame positions to be recognized Can the frame to be recognized easily be specified ? Or can the image be taken so that it is easily recognized ? The frame that is recognized easily means the one in which the image does not go into the recognized area, or the image rarely goes into the recognized area. Therefore, if the image does not go into the recognized area, this will improve the recognized ratio of specifying the frame.

(3)

Confirmation items with a diagnostic device


a) Are the output sizes the same ? The size of WS and others may change. When the sizes changes, the font may change. b) c) Position of the ID, Name, Other 1 and 2 data corresponding to the image size above Font corresponding to the image size above Alphanumerics only ? Is there Kana ? (Kana is for the Japanese version only.) Since it is necessary to register the bit patterns of all the characters, check if it is possible to load all the characters to be used for ID, Name, Other 1 and 2 in the modality into the image data easily. d) Alphanumerics, symbols, Kana only ? Kanji cannot be registered. (This is for the Japanese version only.) e) Are images and characters overlapped each other ? (Recognizing with the maximum number of the characters) When images and characters overlapped each other, can they be separated ? f) Does a character string have one line ? Does a character string start from the left ? When a character string has multiple lines, only one of the lines can be recognized. If a character string start from the right, an unnecessary character, "?", may be inserted preceding the recognized result. g) h) Are multiple patterns needed ? A maximum of 5 recognized patterns can be registered. This includes the patterns for the other image sizes. Is there video noise ? Does the video noise change with the time ? If there is video noise, characters may not be recognized. So, be sure to adjust it so that jitter does not appear. An error will occur when the bit pattern of the character differs with each store. Be careful for the change of the video noise with the time.

19.7.2 Outline of the settings of the character recognition system
Fig. 19.10 shows the system example that consists of one channel of digital input, one channel of video input, two channels of DICOM output (imager, filing system). In the example, the characters of the image data input from the digital and video channels are recognized, and are output to the imager and filing system. Making various settings other than the character recognition settings and obtaining the IP address are assumed to be already completed. (Refer to Chapter 5.) The digital and video input channels of the Printlink-ID and -IV should be usually set to the first channel. The same PC and IP address that are used for installing the Printlink are used for installing the character recognition software. The settings of character recognition need to be made only for the input devices, Printlink-ID and -IV. It is not necessary to make the settings for the output device, Printlink-OD.

Make the following settings on the [Change Channel Data] dialog box in the Printlink install software. (1) Make the settings associated with the character recognition with the input channel. 1. Check if the LINEAR setting exists in the LUT. If it does not, set the Convert LUT to OFF. If it is already set to OFF, do not change it. Note: When the Convert LUT is set to OFF, return it to the original position after setting the character recognition. 2. Set the parameters. OCR Default Name and ID When the character recognition is set to OFF on the controller, set the Name and ID used for transferring the image to the next system. Enter the name, such as "Printlink test film" and "Konica HP", that is easy to understand that the character recognition is not performed yet. Ask a user of the modality at each institution what name and ID should be given. OCR Study Set to ON when the Study function is set to valid. Select the target parameter for the Study from Name and ID with the character recognition install software.

OCR Study Timeout When the next page is not determined in the set timeout, printing starts. The unit of the timeout is "second". Ask a user of the modality for this timeout, and set it. (2) Set the character recognition software-installed PC as the output device for the Printlink-ID and-IV. The same protocol of the character recognition software is used as that of the Li1417D. Therefore, select the HSTP (Li-1417) for the output protocol. Set other settings to the default. Important: Be sure to adjust the signals for the model that requires the adjustment of the input signal, such as Printlink-IV. If the adjustment is not proper, this will decrease the recognition rate.

With the character recognition install software, the data other than the described can be created. Be sure to follow the description and procedure in this manual for installation. Note: During operations, messages such as "Warning error" may appear. After checking it, click the [OK] to continue the operations. In the system example (refer to Fig. 19.11.), the character recognition install software should be installed on the Printlink-ID and -IV individually. Therefore, it is necessary to make various settings that are associated with the installation individually. If multiple modalities are connected, the settings should be made for them individually. Follow the flow chart below to install the software and make the settings properly. Checking the system (the type of modalities) at installation. When the position and type of the font is determined if the modality image size is set;

Ex) When the image size is set to 1024 x 1024 and 512 x 512 at Konica hospital; Other conditions are as shown in Fig. 19.13 and in this example, the character recognition is set in the Printlink-ID. Only alphabetic characters (capital) are used for name, and only numbers for ID. For the image of size of 512 x 512, the different fonts are used for Name and ID (Font A, B). For the image of size of 1024 x 1024, the same font is used for Name and ID. (1) (2) Enter "Konica HP_ID" for the store directory. Start up the character recognition install software.

(5) Follow the procedure below to store the image from the modality. 1. Set the image size in the modality. In this example, the image size is set to 1024 x 1024. 2. In this example, first read the font used for name. When only ID is recognized, read the font of the ID. 3. In this example, the font of the name is set to alphanumerics and symbols only. 4. Enter the characters of the data above with the modality. 5. Since the character recognition is not completed in only one time, the following procedure should be repeated until all the necessary fonts are read. Input the image with the modality (several times).

Output the image.

Read the image with the character recognition install software. Fig. 19.20 Procedure for Reading Fonts The image should be stored repeatedly until all the characters are sent. For example, for the first time "ABCDEFGHIJK" are sent, and for the second time, "LMNOPQRSTUV", and for the third time, "WXYZ....". Be sure to enter the maximum number of the characters that can be entered for one time. This allows the device to check the character input area that can be recognized in the image. In the example, although only alphanumerics and symbols are entered, all the Kana can be read with the character recognition install software if necessary. (This is for the Japanese version only.) When the image data is read, the directory with a name of the image size will be automatically created. If the size is 1024 x 1024, the directory of "1024 x 1024" is created. In the example, the directory of "Konica HP_ID\CH01\1024_1024" is created. Cautions on reading images Check if there is a character space (more than 1 dot) after reading the image one time. If there is not, the registration cannot be made as individual character cannot be recognized. Therefore, output the image with a space to the output device. 6. After reading all the characters used for the name, read the font of ID. Follow Steps (3) to (5) to do so. However, if the size and position of the name and ID are different but their fonts are same, it is not necessary to send the font again. Enter characters at maximum only one time and send them. This is for checking the difference of the position of character strings and the maximum area. 7. After transferring the image with the name and ID, perform Steps 1 to 6 for other image sizes. 8. When the reading of all the different size data is completed, the image reading ends. Click the [Quit Import] to return to the Main window.

Fig. 19.23 Settings Window (7) Set the parameters. In the [Location], select the item to be character-recognized from Name, ID, and Other 1 and 2. (Multiple items can be selected.) Before setting this parameter, confirm with a user (the person in charge at a hospital) which item is character-recognized. In the example, the Name and ID are set to be recognized. In the [Study], select the Name or ID of the recognized result to make the Study function valid. Confirm this with a user of each modality (the person in charge at a hospital) including whether or not to use the Study function. In this item, the parameters to see when the Study function is set can be set. The ON/OFF of the Study function is set with the install software of the Printlink. In the example, the Study will be valid with the ID. In the [Frame], set the frame of the film in which the character recognition is performed. Confirm this with a user of each modality (the person in charge at a hospital). If the image that is easy to recognize can be output into the same frame number all the time, specify that number. If it cannot, or the image is inserted into the recognized area, set the "Multi frame". This function can recognize all the frames in one format. The default is set to the "Multi frame". The "Last frame" and "Last frame-1" can be also set in this item. The [Last frame] executes the character recognition when the last frame in a film is stored. For example, in the 12th frame format, the character recognition is made in the 12th frame, and in the fourth frame format, the character recognition is made in the fourth frame.

The [Last frame-1] executes the character recognition when the frame preceding the last one in a film is stored. For example, in the 12th frame format, the character recognition is made in the 11th frame, and in the fourth frame format, the character recognition is made in the third frame. These settings are convenient when a user always output the frame with the characters in the end although the format always changes. There are two fields for setting, be sure to set the [No recognition] in the right field. Specify the number of frame in the left field. In the example, the character recognition is executed in the first frame. (8) Click the [Change modality name (H)] and enter the modality name. Since the modality name is a guide for selecting the data when the modality data is kept in the library, enter a name that is easy to understand later. Although the field for a channel number appears when the modality name is entered, do not change the channel number. In the example, "Konica HP Regius" is entered as the modality name.

Using the scroll bar on the image display area, move the character strings to the center. Click the upper-left portion of the image, drag to the lower-right portion, and release the mouse button so that the entered character strings are enclosed. When enclosing the characters, allow the margin of 2 to 3 pixels in the upper and lower, the right and left from the characters. Too much margin will not be a problem, but do not set the character frame with no margin. Allow a sufficient margin in the right from the character as the length of the displayed characters changes depending on each character. (e.g. "IIIII" and "WWWWW" have the same number of characters but the length of the displayed area is different.) When setting the character frame, do not include the diagnostic image area within the frame. (Refer to Fig.19.26.)

(1)

Setting thresholds
The threshold separates the background from the characters in the image. Change of the threshold is needed when the image is inserted into the character recognition area. A guide for setting the threshold is as follows. The default value is 128. When images are not within the character recognition area; Leave the threshold at its default. Note : The default value may not separate the characters from the background when the entire density of the image is low, such as RI. In such case, change the threshold so that it can separate the characters from the background. When images are inserted into the character recognition area, or they are likely to be inserted into the character recognition area; Change the threshold. a) When the pixel value of the characters is constant, such as digital input and the network input; Set the threshold to the character pixel value. The character pixel value is the boundary between the character to be recognized and the character not to be recognized. Find a character pixel value by changing the threshold. 1. Find a maximum value from the values at which the characters can be recognized.

Fig. 19.46 Changing Threshold to 250 (This dialog box appears when an error occurs upon the character recognition.) 3. In this case, at threshold 249, the characters can be recognized, but at 250 they cannot. So, set the threshold to 249. b) When the pixel value of the characters is not constant, such as video; Set the threshold to (the minimum value of the character pixel - 10). This is for the jitters of the video signal. Find a minimum value of the character pixel as follows: 1. Read the image of 10 frames. 2. Click the checkbox in the [Hide frame] at the left-center of the window to hide the frame. 3. Find a value at which the characters are garbled and not garbled by changing the threshold by 5. Check all the read frames (10 frames). 4. Find a value at which the characters are not garbled.

5. Find a value at which the characters are garbled.

Fig. 19.48 Garbled Characters (Threshold: 245) 6. In this case, the minimum value of the character pixel is 240. Subtract 10 from that value, and set the threshold to 230. * Considering the jitters of the video signals, 10 is subtracted from the minimum value of the character pixel. However, if the amount of the jitters is large at some institutions, adjust the threshold. Note: It is necessary to set the threshold again when the character pixel value is changed with the change of LUT in the modality.

(2)

Pattern hit ratio


It is not necessary to change this ratio under normal conditions. This ratio may be changed when few characters are registered. The default value is 97.

(3)

Recognition of space character


This setting is for inserting a space between characters. If there is one place to be recognized, the widest space between the characters is recognized as a space, and if there are two, the widest space and the second-widest place are recognized. After setting the space, check the recognized result of the space in the [Check] window (by clicking the [Check]). The [Dictionary] window does not display the space.

Set to " It treats as a character" when registering characters, and set to " Not treat as a character" for other operations. Note: The reason that " It treats as a character" should be selected when registering characters: The window as shown in the figure below may appear. This is because "N" and "I" are smaller than the width of the registered characters when the first character, "K" is registered while " Not treat as a character" is set. In such case, before registering characters, set to " It treats as a character".

19.10.3 Using the dictionary creating data at another institution
Ex) Suppose this situation. An institution, "Konica hospital", created the dictionary data for the images of size of 1024 x 1024 and 640 x 512 in the Regius. Another institution, "KMS hospital", tries to use the data created at the "Konica hospital", and they have the Regius in which the character recognition can be made for the image size of 1024 x 1024 and 1280 x 1024. The "KMS hospital" has the Regius dictionary data (file name: "Konica HP Printlink-ID.mji") and other conditions are as shown in Fig. 19.11. Now, create a new dictionary file in the Printlink-ID at the "KMS hospital". 1. Set the store directory to "KMS HP_ID". 2. Start up the character recognition install software, and set the IP address and the store directory for the Printlink-ID. 3. Read the image data of size of 1024 x 1024 and 1280 x 1024 from the Printlink-ID. Check that the following directories are created.

(Refer to Fig. 19.63.) 5. Since the dictionary file for the images of size of 1024 x 1024 and 640 x 512 is registered in "Konica HP Printlink-ID.mji", read this file. In this case, since 640 x 512 is not needed, delete it by selecting the [Delete (D)] in the [Item (I)] menu.

6. Since the modality name of the read file is "Konica HP Regius", change the modality name to "Konica HP Regius" on the [Settings] window. If the modality name is not changed, the original data, "Konica HP Printlink-ID.mji", is overwritten when this modality is placed in the library. So, be sure to change the modality name. (Refer to Fig.19.64.)

7. In the example, although the read data has the dictionary file for the image of size of 1024 x 1024, the detailed settings, such as the target parameters for the character recognition (Name, ID, Other 1 and 2) and the position of character strings on the image, may be different between "Konica Hospital" and "KMS Hospital". So, check the recognition results of character strings on the [Dictionary] window if they are recognized properly. If re-settings or adjustment are needed, refer to Sections 19.10.1 and 19.10.2 to set them again. 8. No setting has been made for the dictionary file for the image of size of 1280 x 1024 yet. Make the settings from beginning by referring to Section 19.10.1. 9. Save the set data after the necessary settings are complete. In the example, the set data is saved with the modality name being "KMS HP Printlink-ID" and the character recognition file name being "KMS HP Printlink-ID.mji". 10. Send the saved data to the Printlink-ID, and this will complete the settings of the character recognition.

22. Troubleshooting
22.1 Troubleshooting on Startup and Connection
22.1.1 The Printlink does not get powered ON.
Is the breaker switch for the power on the back of the Printlink turned ON ? -> Turn the breaker switch for the power ON, if it is not.

22.1.2 The Printlink shuts down.


Is the power cable connected ? -> Insert the power cable, if it is not.

22.1.3 The Printlink does not start up.


The Printlink does not start up, and "Konica" remains on the controller. The display on the controller does not change until the communication between the controller and the Printlink is established. -> Check the harness. -> Check the controller. -> Check the operation of the I/F. -> Check the installation. The settings of the I/F channel and the install software. -> Check the H/D. Is access made at startup ? -> Check the main board.

22.2 Troubleshooting on Operations


22.2.1 The film is not printed out.
PRINT STOP may be set. Is the test pattern printed out by the imager itself ? "IMAGER not ready" is displayed on the controller of the Printlink. The imager does not start up. A problem occurs with the communication between the imager and the Printlink. -> Change the setting on the "FUNCTION" screen of the controller if it is set. -> If it is not, a problem occurs in the imager.

22.2.2 An error occurs in specifying the format from the Printlink to the imager
The format that cannot be selected in the connected imager is set to selectable in the Printlink. -> Check the format that the imager supports (including image size). -> Check the format data of the installation of the Printlink.

22.2.3 An error occurs in storing the image from the Printlink to the imager
Check the connection of D37 cable. Is the variable mode set in the imager, or does the imager support ROM ? (Size of the frame memory ?) Check the set contents of the header in the imager.

22. Troubleshooting

22.3 Troubleshooting on Image Quality


22.3.1 Image quality problem (Analyzing the causes)
Are problems occur on the films of all the modalities, or on the films of some modalities ? (Main board, H/D, Output I/F, Imager) -> If the problems occur on the films of some modalities, the Printlink I/F has an abnormality (re-adjustment, re-setting). Check the test pattern of the imager. Check the test pattern of the Printlink. -> If it is normal, the I/F of the imager or the Printlink has an abnormality. -> If it is normal, the transfer from the I/F to the H/D has an abnormality. -> If it is abnormal, the output I/F or the imager has an abnormality. -> If the problems occur on the films of all the modalities, any device other than the Printlink I/F has an abnormality.

22.3.2 Abnormal print conditions


Check that the information specified on the Printlink controller and the settings of the imager controller that are output into the imager are matched. (While stopping operating other modalities and operating only the concerned modality, check the controller settings in the imager when the image is read into the imager.)

22.4 Using Backup Imager


It is necessary to set that the LUT, image size, the number of format frames, and film size can be shared when multiple imager are defined as output devices. LUT: Set that the same density is set in the same LUT number between the different imagers. Format: The format that cannot be selected due to the image size or the frame memory size of the imager should be set to Not selectable in the Printlink. (The format that cannot be selected in one imager should be set to Not selectable in the other imagers.) Film size: Set the film size of the used imager in the backup imager.

Note: An error will occur and cannot be reset if you try to output images in the settings that the output imagers do not support. Even if you power off the Printlink, this error cannot be reset. In order to reset the error, execute COLD START (Printlink reset) in the Printlink install software.

22.5 Others
The settings will be reset if the power is turned OFF, and then ON again. The battery for the memory backup of the controller has a problem. -> Check that JP2 is set to ON. -> Check the voltage of the battery. If it is 3.4 to 3.6V, it is normal, but if it is below that, the battery is exhausted. Exchange the board.

22. Troubleshooting
How to collect Log
Errors (on anything other than images) Collect Log with the maintenance software. If an error occurs on one device, collect Log of that device. If the error may be associated with other devices according to the records of the transmission/reception of data, collect Log of the other devices. Collect the files that are created approx. one hour before/after the occurrence of the error. Errors on images (e.g. Previous is not output, loss of frame, the presence of noise, etc.) Turn the power off/on and copy the following three folders. Folder Name: ENV, DATA , LOG Note: Be sure to use the copied folders above; otherwise if you use "cut", the Printlink is frozen.

Fig. 22.1 Collecting Error Log on Images Note: Change to the detail Log setting after collecting Log. This will facilitate the analysis of the error next time the error occurs.
