Inobitec DICOM Viewer

2.8. View Multiple Series

There are several modes for positioning series windows in the study window. The selected mode is saved when the Viewer is closed.

2.8.1 Auto Mode

This mode is active by default. If two or more series are open, they will be located in the window and scaled automatically, occupying the entire window. Three series are displayed in Fig. 2.9.



To activate this mode, click the PIC button or select the Automatic series arrangement item from the image context menu.

2.8.2 Stacked Mode

This mode allows you to open only one series in the study window. If you try to open another series, the current series will be closed. In this case, the Viewer will request confirmation for closing the current series.

To activate this mode, click the PIC button or select the Stacked series arrangement item from the image context menu.

2.8.3 Grid Mode

In this mode the study window is splited into parts, and a series window can be opened in each of them.

If all cells in the grid are filled, you cannot open another series by double-clicking on the series icon. The Viewer will suggest closing any of the open series. If a series is opened by dragging the icon to the view window, the program will request confirmation for closing the current series already opened in this window.

A grid may have from 1 to 100 cells. The maximum number of rows and columns is 10.

Fig. 2.10 illustrates a 2*4 grid with three cells filled.



To set up a 1x2, 2x2 or 2x3 grid, use the PIC buttons on the toolbar. These grid configuration types are available from the image context menu.

To define your own grid configuration, click the PIC button or select the Custom series arrangement item from the image context menu, and set up the required parameters. This configuration can be set by default (see Section 15.4.1).

When positioning series on the grid, viewer allows you to move the boundary between cells. To do this, move the cursor to the panel border so that it would look like PIC or PIC , and drag the border holding the left mouse button. Setting priority of horizontal or vertical separator is described in Section 15.4.1.
