RE: MRI ON CD DISC
The CD should have a built in program called "Film X DICOM LiteBox" and when you insert the CD, the program will usually automatically put the program on your desktop.
If it doesn't load onto your desktop automatically, go into "My Computer" and open up your CD Drive. All the files are listed. Find the one that says DICOM set up, or something similiar and open it up. You may have to install the program this way.
Once you have the program installed, Open up the program from your desktop icon. You may or may not have a small box pop up within the large box popup. If you do, click "ok" You will see two tabs on top of the large box. Open up the one that says "Directory Contents" then look to the bottom of the same screen and you will see "copy/send". The contents box next to "copy/send" will be empty. Click on the very next box to the right of the contents box which is search for a directory. Now find and open up the directory that your CD is in, i.e.: D or E. The directory box will change to whatever directory your CD is in. i.e.: D or E. Now hit the "copy/send" box and you will see the contents box change to C drive, with the file name of Dicom or Litebox or something like that. Don't change this. Hit the update button now and the contents of your CD will be exported to your desktop into the Film X DICOM LiteBox icon. This might take a few seconds depending on your computer.
That's it! You have saved the contents of the CD onto your computer drive C.
Now to view the contents of your MRI, open the icon on your desktop. Tab to the Directory Contents and you will see your MRI file listed. The top part will have your identifying info such as name, date of MRI. The bottom part will be segmented into the different types of images and the number of images in each segment. To view, click on one of the segments.
The buttons on the right panel control how you view or print the segments. You can play with them. The right arrow will move you to the "next" image. You can zoom in. You can view one, or more images at a time. It's really cool.
Also, from this point, you can send your MRI somewere else, print an image, or you can burn another copy of the CD.
Hope I didn't confuse you too much. Have fun!
Let Go, and Let God......
