Sending Reports (& PDFs) to Tricefy

PDF reports (and other non-DICOM) documents cannot be sent to Tricefy using the standard DICOM sending destination. Instead, the ultrasound will send the documents to a network folder via the Export option.  From there, the uplink will automatically detect any content located in this network folder and upload it to Tricefy, so no any additional steps are added to your workflow.

To setup your system to send non-DICOM content to Tricefy:

1) Create a shared folder on your network drive or on the same computer/server running Uplink

2) Ensure permissions for Read/Write access to folder (so that is not read-only)

3) Install (or re-install) the Advanced Version of Uplink

3a) Select File Export & DICOM under Send Data to Tricefy

3b) Enter the name of the folder you created in Step 1 as the Uplink Send Folder (we recommend TriceExport or TricePDF, but you can pick anything)

3c) Leave .* as the extension (this will send all file types to Tricefy), or enter .pdf to send only PDF documents

Note: Refer to the Uplink Installation Instructions for additional installation help

4) Configure your ultrasound system to send non-DICOM data to the folder you created in Step 1 (these settings are typically found within the "Map Network Drive" settings). We have additional instruction for Voluson users below.

5) Send a report/PDF to Tricefy

5a) Create the report, worksheet or PDF as usual

5b) After sending the images to Tricefy, Export your document to the folder created in Step 1

5c) Uplink will recognize the folder has new content and upload the document
