If you use CS Orthodontic Imaging and the snapshot module, you can automatically import snapshots from a patient’s image chart.  After you initially import a snapshot from a patient’s image chart, snapshots are automatically loaded for each subsequent patient, based on the settings you specified in the first patient’s Snapshot window.


To load snapshots from images in a patient’s orthodontic imaging software chart:

  • In the patient’s chart, click the Snapshot icon. The Snapshot window is displayed.
  • Select Click To Set in the Frontal Merge Code field or the Lateral Merge Code field.  (NOTE: If the image type is already defined, there will not be a "Click to Set" link and instead a series of numbers will be displayed (example: 106,2,2,4).  Instead, click that link to reselect the image type).   The Insert Image Object window is displayed.
    • TIP: To always use the latest image at the time the image is imported, select Most Recent in the Visit field.
  • Select the visit containing the image you are loading from the drop-down list in the Visit field.
  • Select the type of image you are loading from the drop-down list in the Type field; for example, Frontal Smile.
  • If necessary, change the image scale by typing a value in the Scale field. The default value in the Scale field is 100 percent.
  • To include any existing annotations in the image, select the Include Annotations checkbox.
    • NOTE:  The Analysis and Measurement fields are not applicable to this feature.
  • Click OK. The patient’s snapshot is loaded.
  • Click Close to close the Snapshot window. A message is displayed, informing you that you must exit and reopen the software before these changes take effect.
  • Click OK. Exit and reopen CS OrthoTrac.
