  2. New installations default to Layout View instead of Single Image View.
  3. Monitor test pattern was added to the Tools menu.
  4. Copy to clipboard function with labels now keeps the labels in color for grayscale images. Previous version converted everything into grayscale when copying a grayscale image onto the clipboard.

  6. Implant labels are now oriented top-to-bottom by default instead of left-to-right.
  7. Layout indicators have been turned off on the Layout Floater View (when viewing single images in a layout).
  8. The Floater View has been completely updated.
  9. The ImageBar has had minor cosmetic updates.
  10. Modified the \’E\’, \’B\’ and \’T\’ command line arguments to NOT automatically create a patient if they do not exist. For more information, please refer to the Command Line Arguments on-line reference.
  11. Correction made to Layout Floater View – it would on occasion not update when made smaller.
  12. Additional tooth descriptions have been added (i.e. quadrant descriptors of Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4) to minimize the amount of space some tooth displays required.

Version 3.11 Build 16
Release Date: 2/13/09

  1. Added option to find out all the registration numbers assigned to a particular computer or installation. The “Display Registration Information” option is available under the Help menu.
  2. Added feature that displays known image types when acquiring from a 3D imaging device immediately after image acquisition.
  3. The patient information that is associated with each individual tile in a layout is now updated when a layout is moved to another patient. Previously the patient information was only updated for the overall layout until the user opened and resaved a layout at which time the patient information is updated for each image.
  4. Correction was made when the user selects a different database and then closes the application. The software will now reopen the same database that was opened the when the application was last closed.
  5. When a layout is opened in Single Image View, the first image is automatically selected. Current behavior displayed an “X” until the user selected an image.
  6. Corrected a problem where the dates displayed for each tile in a layout could revert to the modified date instead of the taken data associated with an image.

Version 3.11 Build 14
Release Date: 1/6/09

  1. Created a new “Could these be the same patient” interface. New dialog provides clearer options and descriptions of what will happen for each option selected. New options added to quickly update an existing patient with new patient information.
  2. Added a new reason column in the “Could these be the same patient” dialog that describes why each patient listed may be the same as the patient the user is trying to open/create.
  3. Added a new option to print the patient list reports when performing the Advanced Patient Merge function.
  4. Added ability to enable/disable individual merge items when performing an Advanced Patient Merge.
  5. Added a new feature that checks if the connection to the database has been lost (i.e. network problem, removable drive, etc) and displays an error indicating when the connection has been lost. Previously the software would display a “patient has been deleted” message when the connection is lost.
  6. The first tile in a layout is no longer automatically selected when opening an image in layout view.
  7. New features added to perform some of the image operations to ALL tiles in a layout at the same time. If no tile is selected in a layout and the user selects one of the viable image operations (i.e. invert), the software will prompt the user if the image operation should be performed on all of the images in the layout. Please note that due to various inputs required to perform some image operations (such as sharpening), not all image operations are available to be applied to all of the images at the same time.
  8. New “History” options added to the context sensitive menus. This new option more easily enables the user to access the history of a tooth (previously the user needed to click on the tooth or teeth in the Teeth pop-out dialog). A new style dialog was added to display the images in the tooth history instead of displaying the same dialog displayed by clicking on teeth in the Teeth popup dialog.
  9. Compare function added to the historical view of tooth related images. This compare can handle comparing 2, 3 or 4 images at the same time.
  10. Teeth associated with a layout has been modified to only include teeth associated with the actual images in a layout. Previously the teeth associated with a layout were based on the teeth associated with the tiles in a layout (those teeth were reflected in the tooth associations even if a tile did not have an image associated with it).
  11. A new, easier method of moving images around in a layout has been implemented. Images now do NOT have to be dropped directly onto another tile when moving the images around. When an image is dropped into open space a new tile is automatically created to contain the image. If the user then moves the image from the new tile to another tile in the layout the temporary tile is automatically deleted. If the user leaves the image in the new tile, the new tile automatically becomes a part of the layout. This new method also works when acquiring images in a layout.
  12. The “Move Image To Another Tile” button on the layout\’s toolbar has been changed to bring the user to a more advanced layout modification screen that permits the user to more easily move images around the layout. This modification screen supports the new temporary drag-and-drop tiles.
  13. By default, tiles can no longer be accidentally dragged around in the layout view. A new option has been added that locks the layout tiles so they cannot be moved by accident. Locking layouts can be disabled/enabled by a new button on the layout\’s toolbar.
  14. Extraneous save messages for layouts have been removed.
  15. Correction made to moving layouts between patients. Previously the original layout may not be deleted or removed from the old patient\’s record.
  16. Version Incompatibility window changed to include new wording and size.
  17. New options were added for STB images included in layouts that prevented labels from being merged into the image when it was exported or copied. This was due to the safety features that prevent STB images from being modified that were not needed when exporting the images in other formats or copying the images to the clipboard.
  18. Arrow keys when viewing single images in a layout have been changed (new buttons added) to correctly move between tiles in the floating layout view. The original arrow keys simply moved from one file to the next in the layout regardless of what order they appeared in the layout itself. The new arrow keys (marked with an “S”) move to the next and previous image in the series.
  19. Internal changes made to correct for portions of the application that were not being translated correctly in multiple-language versions of the software.

  7. Made a correction to handling real-time BC adjustment values for various images contained in a layout when they are opened in single-image view. Previously the last applied real-time BC was not applied to the image the next time it was opened in single-image view.
  8. Added new options to allow changing the overall image type associated with a layout.
  9. Made a correction to how measurement calibrations were handled in the Label View.
