Hi @mksd, sorry about the late reply, been a little tied up with school. Yes I’m definitely looking to incoporate some sort of DICOM support, because at the moment, the Attachments module does not support the viewing of dicom files(Uploaded dicom files simply get re-downloaded once clicked on). And about the PDF support, I thought there was no PDF viewing support because I use Safari and when clicked upon, it didn’t open properly, i have not checked it out on Chrome but then again, I am using an old version of Safari, that should explain it.
My whole idea is that the attahcments module is generally meant to provide a centralized area where you can see files uploaded during patient encounters a s complexObs. But what is the essence of having this functionality when the file ( in this case, Dicom files) can not be viewed from the existing version of the attachments module? Since PDF files open in a browser viewer to enable instant and proper access, I was thinking of incorporating a functionality to properly upload dicom files (probably have to create a DICOM file handler for the complexOb because we cannot use the existing handlers such as the image handler–I have tried) and then providing a way of viewing this file in a proper radiology image viewer like Conerstone. I know this sounds like work that should concern a radiology related module, but then, why have a module to view attachment docs without a functionality to properly view the said docs?
Also I am also looking at separating the attachment files according to categories. Images, PDFs, DICOM files, etc should each be stored separately to provide a more organized look, rather than having them all bundled up together as is the case with the present version.
