Request Cached Items
Completed requests have their corresponding studies stored in the mi2b2 server's repository (cache). Each repository is set up to serve a particular project, and its storage is limited to the project's configuration. When the cache is full, users will no longer be able to transfer in additional studies from PACS. Image Repository (Tab 3) is designed for users to view and manage their project's repository. Users can see the total amount of storage available and how much of the storage has been utilized. Users can also delete cached items to reclaim storage space. Finally, users can download or apply other configured actions to selected studies here (details).
Repository UI Layout
The upper part of the screen is a bar indicating the total space and the used space in the cache. The lower part of the screen shows the information of all cached studies in the cache. The information include study identifiers (AN, Institution, Department, and MRN), study attributes (Study Date, Modalities, and Size), and download history (Last Download by, Last Downloaded Date). Users may select one or more studies to delete, download, or execute other configured actions.
