The DICOM Viewer provides for copying segmented structure surfaces in the MPR Reconstruction and Volume Reconstruction windows. You can copy a segmented structure surface:

  • in one study series;

  • in a merged study series.

To make a copy of a segmented structure surface in a single study series, proceed as follows:

  1. On the segmented structure panel, select the mesh you want to copy.

  2. Click the Copy surface PIC button on the segmented structure panel. On the segmented structure list, you will see a copy of the mesh with a "surface copy" note. The name of the mesh copy, as well as the name of any structure without a volume model, is shown in italics.



To make a copy of a segmented structure surface in a merged series, proceed as follows:

  1. On the list of layers, select the layer with the surface you need to copy.

  2. On the segmented structure panel, select the mesh you want to copy.

  3. Click the Copy surface PIC button on the segmented structure panel.

  4. In the Layer selection (see Fig. 6.17), select from the drop-down list the layer where you want to place the surface copy.



  5. Click OK to copy the surface to the selected layer or Cancel to cancel.

On the segmented structure panel for the layer selected, you will see a copy of the mesh with a "surface copy" note. The name of the mesh copy, as well as the name of any structure without a volume model, is shown in italics.

The things you can do with the surfaces and structures on the segmented structure list are described in Section 6.9. The surfaces you have built or copied may be exported or imported. For details on export and import of surfaces and structures, see Section 6.10. The procedures of saving and opening segmentation and DTI projects are described in Section 6.11.
