Integrating scanned images into OpenClinica Study database

I would like to intgrate scanned images (jpg or pdf) for each subject with the OpenClinica EDC data. Would it be possible to load these images into the database so they can be viewed within OpenClinica or at least printed off with the CRF pages. These images are EKGs and other diganostic images. Any ideas are appreciated.

    Yes, just create a field in your CRF of type 'file' and you can upload them
    there.

    Very possible but my recommendation would be to keep the images out of DB
    and just store links to those images in DB i.e. if images are stored under
    //assets/ then your stored link would be relative to
    and stored as /assets/image

    Please let me know if any questions.

    I agree but my client wants it their way.

    Hi,

    just to make it clear, when using file type in CRF OpenClinica does not store the attached files directly within the relational database (like binary objects). These files are stored in file system within "openclinica.data/attached_files/unique-protocol-id" folders and only links to the files are stored directly in DB. Be aware that you should not change the unique-protocol-id of study once you start uploading files.

    best

    Hi,

    What Tomas states is absolutely correct. Have a look at http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/OpenClinica_User_Manual/ShowingAnImage for instructions to work around this (a bit).

    Hello,

    This is possible. Please clarify a few things on your question:
    1. Is the database already up such that the images are to be imported into
    an existing database?
    2. Is this a new database you are setting up and just wondering how to
    proceed?

    Regards,
    Michael.

    It is a new database for a study that has not started.

    Hi Scott,

    You may also want to look at the OC-BigData extension:
