Figure 3: Software flow diagram for the Enterprise DICOM Wrapper (EDW). The steps outlined in the diagram are as follows: 1. The Laboratory Information System (LIS) sends the HL7 order. 2. The LIS sends the text file. 3. A "Pathology File Processor" receives the text file and registers the patient and exam in an EDW database. The HL7 order received is similar to orders generated for radiology images, so HL7 order modification by the pathology file processor is not necessary. 4. The Pathology File Processor retrieves JPEG images sent from the LIS. 5. The Pathology File Processor places JPEG images into the DICOM Wrapping Queue. 6. The DICOM Wrapping Service retrieves the next wrapping job, wraps the jpegs, and places the newly created DICOM in the DICOM Sending Queue. 7. DICOM Service Class User (SCU) retrieves the next send job and sends the wrapped DICOM to the Enterprise Image Server (EIS)
