Modality Worklist 2.70

If you purchased the DICOM option for your Flo-Lab, you can also add the Modality Worklist module.  If it's not installed already or you need to upgrade to a newer version, download 2.70 here (12.7 MB).

Below are setup instructions, which you can also download in Acrobat PDF format here.

Modality Worklist

The modality worklist allows you to input scheduled patients into the Sonova program. The setup is similar to the setup for DICOM. Your facility's IT department will need to provide you with the IP address and AE title of the system that it is pulling the information from.

To install from the Sonova CD (Sonova 3.52 with Utilities): Insert the CD and it should bring up the choices menu.  Click Install Sonova Utilities.  Click Install Modality Worklist 2.7.  Follow the on screen prompts. You will need to reboot your computer after the install.

To install from the file you downloaded from our website: Locate the file you downloaded - it will be called InstallSonovaMWLVer2.7.exe.  If you did not download the file from your Flo-Lab, then you will need to put it on a CD and take it to your Flo-Lab.  Double-click on InstallSonovaMWLVer2.7.exe and follow the on screen prompts.  You will need to reboot your computer after the install.

Once your computer has been re-started, you will see that it is running on your task bar.

Using the Modality Worklist in Sonova:

While in Sonvova’s opening menu, press ALT+M (As prompted on the lower left portion of the screen).  Sonova will minimize and the Modality Worklist will appear.



Using your mouse or arrow keys, highlight the patient that you want to pull into Sonova. The modality Worklist is automatically refreshed every time you enter it. However, if you have left the Modality Worklist screen open for a few minutes, you may want to click on the Refresh Worklist button if you don’t see the patient that you expect to see.

Once you have highlighted your patient, choose the study type (Lower Arterial, Upper Arterial or Venous) located on the lower portion of this screen.

The Modality Worklist will populate the patient information into Sonova and switch you back into the Sonova software. You can now proceed with your patient test.
