The DICOM Viewer allows you to record video for the selected image viewing window. If you use the View Multiple Series mode (see Section 2.8), then video will be recorded only from the selected window. If you are viewing multiple images in a series at the same time (see Section 2.9), then video will be recorded only for the left bottom image area (highlighted in red in fig. 2.14). The following objects will be recorded:

  • tissues;
  • measurements;
  • annotations;
  • scout lines;
  • tags;
  • orientation cube;
  • ruler;
  • synchronization crosshair.

The following objects will not be recorded:

Video recording will be stopped if:
