METRONewsNovember 2013
Got a few minutes today?
We hear all of the time - "Oh - Metron is so easy".  But of course, that is from those who are regular Metron users.   For someone new to Metron, at least a quick "show me" is needed.   
Whether you are new to Metron or a seasoned user who needs a quick 
"how-to" of a new feature - take the 
time to "learn".   If you have someone next to you who knows how - ask. Otherwise, click to see and listen
Our online training tools are easy and quick.
  It's a "learning curve".....your feedback rewarded!


Thanks to everyone who participated ! Your comments and ideas are greatly appreciated. As we review the suggestions, you may receive follow-up communication so we clearly understand your thoughts.


...Crater Animal Clinic located in Central Point, Oregon! Dr. Keiser noted they have viewed online training sessions located in the Advanced Features section of the Learning Center. Thank you Dr. Keiser and congratulations!

We thank everyone for your time and continued support.

Learning Center: 
Spotlight Training Video of the Month


In response to the Learning Center survey conducted last month, we are beginning a new feature in this issue of the METRONews...

"Spotlight Training Video of the Month."  


Whether you are new to Metron or just want a refresher course, check out this training session and so many more short videos located in the Learning Center.


So grab your Metron learning cap and perhaps a cup of coffee. These minutes spent today are an investment to your patients.

  • Become familiar with the design of the Metron Database

Sending DICOM files

while out in the field 


Even if you are out of the office, you are still able to send DICOM files. If an Internet connection is unavailable, the images will be queued to be sent when you return to the practice (host site) or have an Internet connection.
