1) The echocardiography device creates a DICOM SR „Echocardiography Report" containing the findings detected during the examination. The information on the findings comprises coded descriptors, the observation context (e.g. on the human observer), properties of the finding (e.g. numerical measurements) and information on the referenced images.
2) Relevant parts of the „Echocardiography Report" are selected by the verifying human observer (legal authenticator) for inclusion into the clinical document (e.g. for clinical summary report that quotes imaging findings as evidence for conclusions and diagnoses). As a result of this step, the relevant portions of the evidence document are marked/designated.
3) In addition to the marked relevant portions of the evidence document, the relevant document header contents and observation context needed for inclusion into the target document are automatically detected.
4) Selcected portions of the DICOM SR document determined in step 2) and 3) are transformed to the CDA Rel.2 format
5) The transformed document contents are included in the CDA Clinical Document (e.g. clinical summary report)
