# Connect To Modality

# Check required information

To receive images from modalities, it needs to register SonicDICOM PACS information to modality.
The required information is only three that are "IP Address", "Port Number", and "AE Title".
The following explains each information.

# 1) IP Address

IP Address is like home addresses or telephone numbers on IP network.

On Windows default setting, IP Address is configured automatically when it connects to a network.
In this state, IP Address could be changed every time you start up the OS.
So you need to change this setting and fix the IP Address in devices that will do DICOM communication.

# 2) Port Number

This is the number to identify the program that the computer uses for communication.
The default Port Number of SonicDICOM PACS is "104".

# 3) AE Title

This is the name for identifying the application that will do DICOM communication.
The default AE Title of SonicDICOM PACS is "Provider1".

# Register SonicDICOM PACS information to modality

Register method differs depending on each modality, so please check with the manufacturer's support staff or another person who can assist.

The followings are the default values to be registered.

IP Address: please check individually (it is different depending on each environment)
Port Number: 104
AE Title: Provider1
