Hi everyone, I've been...

Hi everyone,
I've been looking around the site but I have a question on what "imaging" is really supposed to be about. Is it just about "showing" (displaying) selected images or about taking various modalities' DICOM data including Structured Reporting (SR). I would love to see Vista move to SR representation of data. This is not how you enter the data but how exam related information is captured and communicated electronically. I clearly don't know the backgrounds of others so I am including two links.
