Choose the filter option in the Labels Controls and select the labels and label group you would like to filter by. Then click filter again. When you open the Exam window in the Navigation column, you'll see only the filtered cases.

Types of filters

Hide labels

Hide works similarly. Choose the hide option in Label Controls and select the labels you would like to hide. You can also hide individual annotations on an image by using the hide icon on the annotation tag.

  • Edit or delete labels with the corresponding selection in LABEL CONTROLS
