Importing studies from PACS servers

 

Before you commence, you should verify that the PACS server and RadiAnt are properly configured. Please refer to the advanced section of this manual for configuration instructions. Sometimes, the configuration process may be quite complicated or even impossible without the technical support of the vendor of your PACS server.

 

1. Click the  Local archive  button on the toolbar in the main window or use the  F8  shortcut.
