Making Annotations

You can add annotations on any frozen image. To add annotations during live imaging, tap the snowflake icon to freeze the image and display the annotation tools. 

To perform a linear measurement:

  1. Select the snowflake to freeze the image.
  2. Select the Annotation button, which has "Aa" and a line.
  3. Select the line symbol.
  4. Select the blue circles to drag the yellow cross-hairs to the start and end positions of your measurement. As you manipulate the ends of the line, the length (in centimeters) is displayed in a box at the bottom of the image. You can drag this box to the desired location on the image.
  5. To add another line, select the Annotation button and select the line symbol again. The next line is displayed in a different color and has a letter next to it. You can add up to four linear measurements to each image.
  6. To delete a line, select the line or the line's measurement. Select the X next to the corresponding numeric measurement display, and select Delete Line to confirm.

To perform an ellipse measurement:

  1. Select the snowflake to freeze the image.
  2. Select the Annotation button, which has "Aa" and a line.
  3. Select the ellipse symbol.
  4. Touch and drag the caliper icons to scale and rotate the ellipse. A box with the ellipse's circumference and area (displayed in centimeters and square centimeters) is displayed in a box at the bottom of the image. You can drag this box to the desired location on the image.
  5. To delete an ellipse, select the ellipse or the measurement value and tap the X next to the corresponding numeric measurement display. Select Delete Ellipse to confirm.

To add a text annotation:

  1. Select the snowflake to freeze the image.
  2. Select the Annotation button, which has "Aa" and a line.
  3. Select the "Aa" to display the Search or Create New Annotation screen.
  4. To use a preconfigured annotation, select the annotation. 
  5. To enter your own annotation, use the keyboard to type the annotation.
  6. On your mobile device keyboard, select Done.
  7. Drag the annotation to the desired location on the image.
  8. To delete the annotation, select it and then select its X. Select Delete Annotation to confirm.
  9. You can add up to five text annotations to each image.
