Metron Support Services
Hope you are having a great summer! This month I wanted to point out a few features of Metron.
If you use your Metron-based radiograph system for equine patients, I would encourage you to use the guided mark-up features for hoof analysis. These tools provide a way to quantify things about the horse's hoof that you may be trying to communicate to the farrier or to the owner. A printed "Metron Report" showing the state of your client's horse's hooves is a great way to communicate.
If you have been using Metron solely for radiographs, you should be aware that digital photographs of the hoof can and should be incorporated into the horse's records. From hoof photos, we have guided mark-up routines to look for things such as contracted heels, under-run heels, or too high (or low) on the heel, and other things.
|Emailing with Metron
Emailing single or multiple images from within Metron is often desired and we are asked about it frequently. So this month we decided to share some beneficial details on this topic.
Beginning from the Metron database browser, select multiple images in your study (highlight with red border) and click "Send by E-Mail
Once you have selected the images and clicked the send button, you are presented with a screen that allows you to put in the recipients of the images.
You are also able to determine if you want to send with annotation and mark-up as well as the image format.
If you would like to have defaulted or favorite emails addresses that are remembered, you can set this up in Preferences located in the top bar of the Metron application.
Currently this email function works with Microsoft Outlook Express, Outlook and Microsoft Live.
