Multiple Patients Captured in a Single Session
It's best practice to associate patient data and save images after each patient session.
In the event there are scans from multiple patients in a session, you can save images in batches, with different associated patient data.
After you have completed your session, follow these steps to save images in batches for each patient:
- Tap the Capture Reel.
- Add the patient data for the first patient. Save.
- On the Study screen for the patient, tap "Save."
- Choose the destination archive, then scroll to the bottom where the thumbnails of all of the images are selected.
- Select just the thumbnails that belong to this patient (unselect the others).
- Tap "Confirm." You will be presented options for the remaining images.
- Choose "Roll Into New Study."
Repeat for the next patient.
