To develop an image within EXAMINEPRO, the radiation icon is key.
The radiation icon will take you into the main acquisition screen.
Click on the padlock icon when you wish to reserve the scanner, this means any radiographs put through the scanner will be sent to this PC. You must do this every time you want to develop an exposure before you put the plate through the scanner. Please note if the scanner is set up in single user mode, you will not have the padlock and you can always put plates through without reserving the scanner beforehand.
When the scanner has been successfully reserved the little plate icon will go yellow, this means the scanner is developing your radiographs. The scanner will only be reserved for a set period of time, if this time expires the plate icon will return to a blue colour and you will need to reserve the scanner again.
As the plate goes through the scanner the plate icon will go purple with an arrow, this means the x-ray image is currently being scanned and will show on the PC shortly.
If the plate icon shows as orange with a cross next to it this means the PC is unable to connect to the PSPIX2, ensure the PSPIX2 unit is switched on and all cables are secure. If it is still not connecting then please call the Help Desk for support.
Once the image(s) has been created and the user presses EXIT, the save option will appear.
Within the save option it is possible to fill out the following details:
- Exposure Levels
- Image Type
- Tooth Notation (See Below)
Once the desired details are complete it is then possible to save, save all, delete or delete all.
To assign a particular image to a tooth, or set of teeth, the tooth icon can be selected at the point of saving the image.
Should the tooth notation need to be changed after, it is possible to do so by changing the image properties of the thumbnail shown after saving.
Once selected, the “Select Teeth Range” window will appear and it is then possible to select the tooth or set of teeth by individually clicking on each tooth graphic.
Once complete, click the tick.
Images will then be assigned to the teeth range and will display on the EXACT tooth chart. (Example below):
Depending on the type of image that has been developed (OPG, Bitewing, Photo, Other) the colour of the notation marker will change. Each colour will fade over time to show the age of the image.
