The VistA Imaging DICOM Gateway is a suite of VA-developed software that facilitates the transmission of DICOM images between the image acquisition modalities (Radiology) and the equipment on which these images are permanently stored (HP servers). The images and information about them are stored in the VistA database as a part of the patient record. Once images have been stored in the system, they are available for viewing from any VistA clinical or diagnostic workstation.

This page provides links to installation guides [FTP] and user manuals for the background processor, gateways, verifier utility, routing, VistARad, PACs Administrator position description & radiology/nuclear medicine HL7 interfaces.
