# Send Images to SonicDICOM PACS
You can send images from modalities, third party's PACS, etc. to SonicDICOM PACS using DICOM communication.
# Check required information
To send images to SonicDICOM PACS, you need to register SonicDICOM PACS information in the product that will send images, such as modalities.
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 address 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 modalities, etc.
Please register SonicDICOM PACS "IP Address", "Port Number", and "AE Title" to modalities, etc.
Register method differs depending on each modality, so check with the manufacturer's support staff or another person who can assist.
The followings are the default values to be registered.
|IP Address||Check individually (it is different depending on each environment)|
If you would like to use a value other than the default one, change the settings in
Connection of PACS Manager or
Admin Settings > Server > Connection of the web interface.
