• Let a Modality alter Patients Comments (0010,4000) received through MWL

    Hi all,
    I agree that its normally a good comment ground to not let a modality change data received through MWL (e.g. compare https://www.medicalconnections.co.uk/kb/Manual-Editing-Of-MWL-Data). However, I am currently targetting a modality that allows to add
    comments about the patient through its UI and I would like to preserve this functionality even if a patient item was received through MWL.

    So I plan to include (0010,4000) within the worklist request and if the SCP does provide a return value for it, I would use that value as the initial input for the UI text field. Do you see any possible problems arrising if the operator is then capable
    of altering the complete Patient Comments value, including deletion? Or would it better to let the operator only append to the given comments value, and handle the received value as read-only?

    Best regards,
    Morty

    Or does a change/append to PatientsComments already break the constraints of the clinical Workflow?
