Radiology Module


The module has been worked on by different groups historically. Please refer to

Radiology Module (2013)

Radiology Module with dcm4chee (2014)

if you want to know more about the modules origin.


The OpenMRS radiology module aims at adding capabilities of a Radiology Information System (RIS) onto OpenMRS.


Current set of features:

  • place radiology orders in OpenMRS
  • configure a set of concept classes to define the orderable imaging procedures at the healthcare facility
  • configure a DICOM web viewer like oviyam or weasis to open the ordered radiology studies from within OpenMRS
  • create radiology report (currently only free text) once a radiology order is completed


The module has not yet been officially released. We are working very hard on a first release. Please watch for any updates.

The module currently does not send order messages to any external system via HL7. So you do not need to install an open source PACS like dcm4che at the moment.
