  1. Added new fields to the patient database. NOTE, this version will perform an update to the database!
  2. Added new fields to the image database. NOTE, this version will perform an update to the database!
  3. You are now able to set what discipline the software should support: human general; human dental; veterinary genera; veterinary dental; podiatry. . The various “general” disciplines change the software interface from being dental-centric to allowing the user to utilize a more general interface (e.g. instead of selecting teeth when capturing an image the user selects what region of the body). In addition, when one of the “veterinary” disciplines are selected, the interface modifies itself to show species and breed information.
  4. The out-dated “veterinary mode” option has been removed since it has been superceded by the new discipline preferences.
  5. Species and breed selections are available when in a vet mode. The interface modifies itself to display species and breed information. Not only do these selections appear to allow the user to select what species and breed should be used, the designators also appear throughout the application whenever patient demographic information or image information is displayed.
  6. Body part selection is displayed when acquiring images in human general mode. Since general users (i.e. non-dental organizations) do not acquire or work exclusively with the patient’s mouth, the software changes from requiring the user to select teeth before an image is acquired to selecting what portion of the body is going to be imaged. Of course, the user always has the option of clicking on the “Capture Dental Image” button should they need too. This interface allows quick and easy selection of the general areas of the body in additional to permitting the user the ability to select the specific item that is to be imaged (i.e. femur).
  7. Generic animal body is displayed when acquiring in vet general mode. Similar to the general human discipline, the general veterinary mode presents the user with a quick selection of animal anatomy when capturing an image. Similar to the human interface, the user may either click on one of the quick areas or may select the specific area and item that is going to be imaged.
  8. Tooth charts and tooth numbering automatically changes based on the patient’s species in vet mode. When in veterinary dental mode, the software automatically adjusts the various tooth charts and tooth numbering based on the species of the patient. Currently four dentitions are supported: canine; feline; equine; and a general tooth chart.
  9. Field data entry area completely redone on the worklist and query screens. New design facilitates easier data entry, better flexibility and easier to use fields.
  10. New options added to the preferences to identify exactly what data entry fields are to be displayed on the worklist and query screens.
  11. Data Server selection text removed and new section added to the data entry field list. New server selection is much easier to use and can be hidden under the preferences.
  12. NOTE: The imaging capture extension IXDLLs will need to be updated to support the discipline and species/breed acquisitions.
  13. Added CR modality support.

Version 3.0 Build 106
Release Date: 11/26/08

  1. Image filters and custom macros are now available in the view image screen. This functionality permits the user to view an image with different image algorithms applied to it at the same time to determine which image operation results in the best image. Additionally, the user is able to create their own custom macros that can be applied to an image.
  2. Permission control has been added to the calibration factor management.
  3. Once an image has been calibrated, the calibration is physically stored inside each image. This way, when an image is forward to another computer that does not have an auto-calibration associated with the image, any measurements are already calibrated in an image.
  4. New image modification tracking has been implemented by changing the images content date and time tags (tag 0008,0023 and 0008,0033). Every time something is modified in an image, these tags are updated with the current date/time.

  10. Show/hide labels option added to the label menu on the view images screen.
  11. Labels can now be saved with an image. These labels are saved internally with the image so they would be forwarded to other DICOM systems.
  12. Labels no are removed when navigating from one image to the next in the view images screen. Previously a label stayed in place when you navigated from one screen to the next.
  13. “Images” preferences option added to the application preferences. Allowed for better classification of options that related directly to how images are views and operated on in the program.
  14. “Delete images” options moved from the “Permissions” options group to the new “Images” options group.
  15. Label saving option added to the “Images” preferences. The levels include: never save labels; prompt if labels should be saved; always save labels. Note that this setting operates hand-in-hand with the option to permit the saving of modified images.

  1. Made correction where the application would try and forward images to a Worklist only server. Now the software ignores Worklist only servers when trying to forward images.
  2. ISDLLs now operate on selected images or all images if none were selected in the view images screen. Previously they worked on ALL images even if the user selected a specific image in the view.
  3. SSN matching can now handle matching formatted and unformatted SSN numbers. Previously 111-22-3333 and 111223333 would not match as identical patient ID numbers.
  4. Optimized drawing of collection views.
  5. Printing from the view images screen now pre selects any images that were previously selected by the user. If the user selects one or two images in the view and then prints (either to Windows or DICOM printers), those images are pre-selected in the image list. If no images were selected in the view images screen, then all images are automatically pre-selected.
  6. The preferences dialog is no long a top-most window.
  7. Tool tip display has been corrected on Vista operating systems.
  8. Popup menu controls are now automatically adjusted to be the correct size the first time they are displayed.
  9. When dragging the images around in the compare images dialog, the on-screen text is no long redrawn while the image is being redrawn. Previously, text artifacts would be left on the images as the image was dragged around the view.
  10. The multiple window sliding bars at the bottom of the screen have been made smaller.
  11. If multiple patients are selected when viewing images, the patient’s names now appear in the text below each image and in the tool tips that are displayed for each image.
  12. Monitor test pattern options added to the application. This option automatically appears in the Advanced User Tools menu but can be disabled in the preferences. The monitor test pattern handles single or multiple screen calibration.
  13. Much better display of multiple-framed images added. Now multiple-framed images are displayed as an animation in each thumbnail image. When a multiple-framed image is selected for display, each individual frames is selectable by the user in the thumbnail list at the bottom of the screen.
