Switching in different KHEOPS albums

When you create a destination that points to a KHEOPS album, you can propagate your data to underlying albums.

This is useful when you want to send a cohort of studies to a research group for example, without sharing all of the album studies.

Beware, the study sharing between album, must be done only within the same KHEOPS. Studies cannot be shared between different KHEOPS instances, you should create one destination per KHEOPS instance.

The purpose of this functionality is to allow sending your data to a single destination and to use the KHEOPS API to propagate your data to different places without having to create a new destination.

The following illustration show a scenario of this functionality. The illustrated scenario allows you to send a DICOM data to KARNAK. KARNAK has a destination defined to send the data to a KHEOPS album (Album main). This means that this album will regroup all the data sent by KANRAK. To prevent researchers or end users from having access to all the data, the data will be shared in other albums according to defined conditions.

  1. The DICOM data is send to KARNAK
  2. KARNAK send the data to the album main in KHEOPS
  3. The data will be shared in the album X and in the album Y
