Please note the following procedure applies to All Pax-i, Paxi3D, Paxi3D Green , Smart3D units and some other P1 Equipped units that use “NCSW” (New Capture Soft Ware) as show below in the screen shots.
The procedure for re-saving for all modalities; Pano, Ceph, CT are all basically the same except the mode we pick, also if you are ‘twaining’ (Capturing from a 3rd party software) the procedure is the exact same however you will not call from EzDent-i rather you would go through normal capture sequence to open the capture program
First open the patient chart in this example we are using our native Vatech Software – EzDent-i , however if twaining or SDK use the normal method to open the chart.
Next you will want to hit the acquisition tab like normal to capture an image, choosing the proper image type. In this case we are using Pano for the example.
Once you launch the capture program verify all the patient information is correct. Please note if twain capturing you will see generic information such as “Twain capture” or “Vatech Twain” which is normal.
Once you have verified the information confirm the modality is correct that you need to recover the image from by selecting the modality if not already properly selected. For this example we have chosen Pano as outlined in red as shown below.
NOTE: For Ceph or CT recovering, the same applies however instead of selecting the Pano modality; you will choose either Ceph or CT button accordingly depending on desired image recovery type.
Finally in this step; choose the reconstruction button which is located in the upper right hand corner. Note it is the 2nd button from the left and is circled in the below image for reference.
This will now open the reconstruction utility. In the image on the left as shown below the first step will be to hit ‘Search” as circled.Please note you will not change the file path or make any changes in this screen, just simply hit search.
Next as shown in the right side image below ; after hitting search it will populate the recently captured image list.
To better understand how these images are organized, the first image is ALWAYS the very last image processed* rather manual reconstruction or last image taken. From there the 2nd to last* image taken will be the highest number and then goes in reverse order.
Example: Number 1. is very last image processed. Number 18 in this example is the 2nd to last, and number 2 listing is the very oldest*. Each line when you select will include the patient chart information, Name, DOB, Gender and so on.
Each line name is also a date time stamp code. Such as Pan_20170118134853 which is 2017 01 08 (1/8/2017) – 124853 is the time it was taken in military time – 12:48 53 seconds.
The important thing is the patient information – verify the patient your looking for in the list and select that line entry.
Select the line entry based on the patient information displayed as shown below. And click the reconstruction button.
You will then be prompted to confirm reconstruction. Click Ok.
Once reconstruction is finished it will display the image. At this time if you have Autofocusing you can choose from the 5 images and select the most desired, or if Auto focusing is not enabled; in either case click save normally to save the image.
Once the capture program is closed after saving confirm the image is saved by refreshing the patient chart.
