Custom FHIR Resources Definition of Detailed Radiation Information for Dose Management Systems

Abderrazek Boufahja, Steven Nichols, Vincent Pangon

Abstract

Medical diagnostic imaging dose management systems aggregate and calculate irradiation dose generated by acquisition modalities, collected through standardized methods such as DICOM®, HL7® or proprietary interfaces. Irradiation dose information is valuable to multiple stakeholders, such as, general practitioners (GP), nationalized dose registries, patient facing applications, and information systems, such as, the Radiology Information System (RIS) or Electronic Health Record (EHR). For Medical Physicists, the radiation data is used to perform patient cohort and statistical analysis as part of a dose management program. However, there is no standardized, lightweight method to exchange the collected dose information with third party applications, through RESTful APIs. In this paper, we define a methodology to expose the content of the Radiation Dose DICOM® SR data models as custom HL7® FHIR® resources. This methodology leverages the strength of FHIR® in defining and exchanging resources, and the strength of the DICOM® SR data models, as their structure is implemented, maintained, and tested by dozens of modality providers.}
