Acuson 512 setup.
Is there anyone familiar with setting the 512 with a PACs network. I need to setup a way for my client to make CDs to give to his Patients. Or is there away to make CDs directly for the Acuson 512 ultrasound
You should be able to burn a CD if the Sequoia has a slot on the front above the MO drive for a CD.
You most likely don't have the DVD burner or you would not be asking this question. If you do then run with it.
If you don't you can set up an XP tower computer and install a Fujitsu or equivalent 3.5" MO read/write drive very similar to the one in a Sequoia.
From here you intstall Microdicom, a free download Dicom reader, and read your Sequoia images, save them to the XP and burn them to a CD or DVD. Not the quickest cleanest operaton but it works.
I do this for clients performing research studies with CRT Sequoias so that they can burn and send images across the world.

When the Doctor puts the CD into the burner, the CD doesn't get recognize. Therefore, no images can be transferred to the CD. Could this be a software issue or a hardware issue? Do I need to buy software? Does anyone know what procedure is needed to burn patient images to CD's?
It will be similar to pushing the images to a PACs. How difficult is it to setup the C512 to send to a PACs? I am a 54 year old, with 30 years of Medical imaging engineering experience. Ultrasound is not one of my stronger trades. I am only doing this to help a Dr. in Mexico as a favor for a friend. Purly voluteer. Any help is greatly appreciated.
My C512 only has a DVD ROM drive. Therefore, the Dr. cannot burn images to give to her patients. I guess the only way to burn images is to send them to a PACs. I need help to setup the C512 to a domain PACs. Does anyone have experience in do that? Is there a service manual available? I would greatly appreciate any help!
