Technical Information for Asteris Repository Software

Radiographs and Reports may be submitted to the Repository in two ways:

  1. Online
    1. a. Beginning in 2020, Asteris will introduce a new Keystone Community application where veterinarians who already have a username and password can access the new application via the “Log In” button at the top of or directly navigate to
    2. b. New Users must go to a different URL. New submitting veterinarians should utilize this unique URL:
    3. c. The following link is for the install/user guide for the Keystone Community software
    4. d. If a veterinary practice is an existing Asteris Keystone customer this step may be skipped and allow OBS access to your study directly from your Asteris Clinic management software. For further information please contact Asteris about using this feature.
  2. Directly to the Repository
    1. a. Radiographs may be submitted on an external hard drive, USB drive, CD or DVD.
    2. b. (one hip per CD/DVD)
    3. c. Accession Number – Day the horse sells and hip number i.e. Day 1-0001
  • Please label the studies in the following manner:
    • Patient – Hip Number as it is in the catalogue (horses’ names are not required). When inputting the hip number be sure to use four digits i.e. 0001 for Hip 1
    • Owner – Consignor as listed in catalog
    • Accession Number – Day the horse sells and hip number i.e. Day 1-0001
  • We recommend a recent version of Chrome and using the “DICOM Images” option for diagnostic quality images. 
  • “JPEG Images” will not be accepted for Repository studies due to the non-diagnostic quality of the images
  • An Internet connection with a download speed of 1.5mbit/s or higher is recommended to view DICOM Images
  • Keystone Community (the software that uploads radiographs) detects installations of Merge eFilm, Sound VetPACS, IDEXX EquiView and Asteris Discovery when it starts. It acts as a DICOM server and can communicate via that method with many compatible PACS systems or simply Drag and Drop DCM/DICOM formatted files at step 2 of the software. You can drag an entire folder or individual files for one complete study. 
  • Please disable “burned-in” image labeling (annotations) if your DR system supports it. 
  • Hanging Protocols – Our system is hanging protocol aware and can be customized depending on how effectively the horse can be identified during uploading of the study. If you want the viewing vet to be able to adjust the hanging protocol used we recommend you upload your study and match any images which can’t be automatically identified. Uploading your own studies online allows the submitting vet full control over the process and more accuracy as the automatic options do not always match perfectly. If you have a Digital Radiograph machine that is new to market or recently updated please encourage your machine vendor to contact Asteris so they can work with the vendor to automate the hanging protocol detection system in their software. it is advisable to submit a  sample set of radiographs before a sale to help eliminate potential problems.
