Tags are used to apply text snippets to a case which can then be used for futures searching. Tags allow a user that is NOT a case owner to apply text for his or her later searching.
Tags are arranged in a hierarchical manner for easy use. There are three different groups of tags in RadPix, “My Tags”, Group tags, and Global tags.
My Tags are created by and only accessible by the individual user.
Group tags are created by and only accessible to members of groups of users. For instance, a group of RadPix users that are members of a group “Chest” can make tags and apply tags to cases. Other members of the “Chest” group can then search for cases with the “Chest” tags.
Global tags are available to all users and include RSNA RadLex Anatomical terms. Currently, the RadLex terms are available only in English, with an expected release in Early 2018 of a German translation. A Portuguese version is in the works as well.
For instance, a case is created by user “johnson” and sets the read access to the case to all logged in users.
User “smith” views the case and wants to use it at an upcoming conference. User “smith” views the case and creates a tag, “CT Conference 2/1/18”. User “smith” tags the case with the new tag and to all the other cases the user wants to show in that conference.
In the main query grid, “smith” selects the tag and the displayed list of cases is filtered to only show cases that have been tagged with “CT Conference 2/1/18”.
User “johnson” cannot see that user “smith” has tagged the case.
