Altering images
Can I save the original image?

Q: 
How do I edit/make alterations to an image without losing the original? 

A: Well, there are two options worth mentioning. At any time you can return to the original image state by clicking a Metron Detail Filter ...generally the #2 filter. By doing so, this will undo the image manipulations. However, if you have cropped the image, you will need to click the "Crop" button and click the "Un-Crop/Mask" button.

If you want to compare the original image, create a duplicate. To create a duplicate image, click on the image (so that it is highlighted with a red border), then click the "Copy" button. Select the "Paste" button to create the duplicate image. Next, make any adjustments to the duplicate image using the Metron tool(s) you prefer. Upon completion, return to the Metron Study List, click on both images, then click the "View" button to view them in a side-by-side comparison.

Why is my Internet so slow?
Slow Internet   
Your Internet is slow because it is used in more ways and more often. Your Internet is slow because your Internet speed expectations have increased.

Five years ago, most of you were not sending X-Ray images to your radiology service, looking at lab results, sending emails and working online with vendors, researching symptoms and treatments for your patients..., AND (taking a breath here) allowing your staff and clients to use Facebook, Twitter, Google, Chat, YouTube, Netflix, or to use your office wireless connection to access the Internet via their phones and tablets.
 
You can no longer treat your Internet connection as a luxury.  We are at the age when business does not function without the real-time interconnections we share via the Internet.   Oh - and our personal lives whether at home or while working is completely entwined with the Internet.

Metron is now a product and a service that utilizes the Internet for image sharing and collaboration, technical support, and software updates.   You rely on Metron to send images to specialists and colleagues. Metron depends on a reliable and fast Internet connection to get the job done. 

Your slow Internet may have a surprising culprit - it is the same speed today as it was when you signed up for the service several years ago.    Many Internet services including your residential cable modem and your cell phones keep increasing their speeds every year for the same base rate.   Find out what you are using and consider a change that gives you today's speed and will keep up with the market speeds year after year.

Today's Internet is like "power" - most of us can barely function without it. Make sure you have the speed and reliability you really need.   

Metron Imaging Software
Windows 10 Compatibility
No doubt many of you are receiving the messages from Microsoft encouraging you to reserve your copy of Windows 10....at no cost to you. 

Here are just a few things you 
need to know:

1. Metron Imaging Software has been tested within the Windows 10 platform and many of the Metron features have passed including connectivity within the practice, Guided Mark-UP, emailing images, DICOM, and more. We will continue to test Windows 10 as updates are provided by Microsoft.

2. It is not enough for your X-Ray system to have Metron support Windows 10. It is critical to have your X-Ray scanner or panel support it. Please contact your hardware manufacturer for information.

3. Windows 10 has not been fully tested and is NOT currently compatible with most Practice Information Management Software (PIMS) systems. Be sure to check with your PIMS provider before uploading any software updates.
