We offer referring doctors online access to studies and reports with InteleViewer and InteleConnect. Whilst InteleViewer is only officially supported on Windows and Mac (10.6+) platforms, it is possible to run InteleViewer under Wine on Ubuntu.
The following tutorial comes with no guarantee and is simply a proof-of-concept. It is in no way endorsed by Intelerad Medical Systems, nor should it be used in a clinical environment.
The following steps were performed on an Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty) desktop, running under Virtual Box in Mac OS 10.7. It should theoretically work with later releases of Ubuntu.
Firstly, you will need to install the Wine compatibility layer. To do so, open the Ubuntu Software Center and search for ‘Wine’. Next to the ‘Wine Microsoft Windows Compatibility Layer’ package, click ‘Install’
Once the installation of Wine is finished, open up your web browser and download the Windows 32-bit release of InteleViewer from SRG. The file can be found here. Save the file to somewhere accessible, such as your Desktop folder.
After the download has finished, open Terminal and do the following:
Wine will then be configured for first-use, and then load the InteleViewer installer. Continue through the installation as you normally would on a PC or Mac. The installer stalls on the ‘Shutting down dicom service etc’ part, but once it finishes it will continue just fine.
After the installation has completed, an InteleViewer icon will be on your Ubuntu desktop. Open InteleViewer as you normally would, and enter the settings for our PACS server.
You will now be able to log in using your SRG credentials & access your patients’ images and reports!
Again, please be aware that SRG will not be able to provide support for any users running InteleViewer in this way.
