Configure Dicom Exports


📘

The recommended settings for macula scan are:

Retina 3D, horizontal b-scans (no fundus image should be exported with b-scans)

Retinal area of interest – 6-7-8 mm (no wide scans!)

Scan Width - 1024

Scan Height - 944

Altris AI analyses the central sector of the retina and does not provide optic nerve analysis

For more accurate results, we kindly ask you to select 6 or 7мм zone (please do not export wide scans up to 12mm).

All information is also available in the DICOM Manual.

  1. Within the OCT application, a configuration dialog supports selection of the generated DICOM file format for scan reports to be transferred to PACS. The available options for reports are: Encapsulated PDF (EPDF) or Secondary Capture.
    To select the DICOM format type, go to tab Tools->DICOM Settings and the dialog box will display. Please note that only one file type can be chosen. If the “Auto generate DCM for reports” option is selected, any time a report is opened later, a DICOM file will be generated for the new opened file and will automatically be sent to PACS.
    Also, if “Include patient information in EPDF” is checked, then patient information is included in the PDF image encapsulated in the generated EPDF file. If not enabled, then the generated EPDF file does not include patient information in the PDF image encapsulated in the generated EPDF file.
