This functionality is only available for the administrators of a sending radiology department.


To get an overview of all anomalies that have been registered for your radiology department, click on 'Functions' and choose 'Anomalies'.


This page lists all anomalies, as registered on the study administration page (see 5.3.6.4 Anomalies) for each individual exam, grouped in two categories:

  • anomalies on study level
  • anomalies on patient level

Anomalies on study level

The following anomalies will be reported:

  • National number in DICOM files differs from HL7 information
  • Date of birth in DICOM images differs from HL7 information
  • No or incorrect date of birth registered
  • Number of images in PACSonWEB differs from the number of images in the local PACS (taking into account any applied filtering)
  • National number already registered with another patient through DICOM

Anomalies on patient level

The following anomalies will be reported:

  • Multiple internal patient IDs have been registered for a single patient
  • Received national number already linked to another patient
  • Date of birth differs from date of birth that was registered with a previous exam
  • National number already registered with another patient through HL7


For each registered anomaly, the following information is shown: 

  • the source of the study
  • a link towards the study
  • the study date
  • date and time when the anomaly was registered
  • the anomaly type + the required access level of a user to be able to open the study
  • a description of the anomaly
  • the possible corrective measures


Once a solution has been selected, it will be marked in green. When hovering the cursor over the label, it is displayed by whom and when the selected solution was applied.

In case a national number was registered for two different patients, it will be possible to assign this to the first patient, the second patient or to merge both patients.
For the latter option, the following screen is displayed to perform the merge in a controlled way:

WARNING: once a solution has been applied, this cannot be undone!



Only the 100 most recent anomalies are listed in the overview.
To display a selection of the registered anomalies, you can use the filter.

Filtering can be applied, based on a single field or multiple fields. Possible fields are:

  • Source
  • Anomaly types
  • Status
  • Anomaly date
  • Study date (from = 0h00 ; to = 23h59)
  • Access restriction
  • No labels
