Navigation

Select the exam, series, or specific image to work on using the Navigation column.

Fast Navigation

There are several tools for navigating quickly through images.

  • Cine mode speed can be set to view the images in a sequential order, forwards or backwards.
  • Image Render Settings can be accessed on the toolbar. Disable the Use Rendered Image toggle to use low resolution versions of the images for scrolling. The full resolution will then load when you stop scrolling. Activating this setting may lead to higher performance.
  • An image can be selected directly from the Image button in the Navigation column.
  • Scroll images by holding Right/Left arrows
  • Navigation Keyboard Shortcuts can be used to skip ahead several images at once or go directly to the first or last image
  • Use keyboard shortcuts to navigate between panels in a multipanel view

Viewing

Default hierarchical View

Customize DICOM display

Administrators can toggle DICOM fields on or off in the Image navigation field

Sort Exams

Exams can be sorted by Patient ID, Patient Name, Study Date/Time, Study Description, or Randomize. By default the exams are sorted by Patient ID.

Sort Series

Series can be sorted by Series Number, Series Description, # Images, Modality, Body Part or Plane. Sorting by Plane is handy for CT or MR studies with many series. By default the series are sorted by Series Number.

Sort Images

Images can be sorted by Instance Number or Patient Position in either Ascending or Descending order. By default the images are sorted by Instance Number.

Global Thumbnail View

You can view images as thumbnails by selecting the Global Thumbnal view from Data View in the Navigation column. You can choose the display level as exam, series, or image.

You can select multiple exam, series, or images (depending on the scope initially chosen) and apply global labels to several components at once.

Example with several series selected to which the same label can be applied simulatensously.
