partial matches in PatientID query

Hi,

when I use Radiant (3.4.1) to query my PACS system by "PatientID" I get partial matches. (Querying for PatientID "123" returns patients with PatientID "123", but also "1234", "5123" and even "61237")

I only ever want exact matches on that field. Is there a way to configure radiant to not send wildcard queries, but to only return exact matches? Or is this an issue with the PACS system I am using?

Thank You,
Levin Alexander

Hi,

Currently you can't enable exact matches in the PACS search (wildcard is always used). This will be configurable in the future.

Greetings,

Glad to hear that, thank you.

For now, I'll probably work around this by ensuring PatientIDs in my system are zero-padded to a fixed length.

Thank you again,
Levin Alexander
