To compare images
Use the Patient Search field to access a patient's record.
If the last patient record you accessed since you last logged on is the correct patient's record, you do not need to re-enter the patient's name in the Patient Search field.
You can include inactive patients in the search results by setting the Include inactive patients switch to On.

ClickTap any single image (intraoral X-ray, intraoral photo, extraoral photo, or extraoral X-ray) or an image within an image set (such as a full mouth series or bitewings).
The selected image appears in the viewing area.
The images that have tooth numbers in common with the selected image (the "Original") appear on the Images for tooth range panel.
The first image on the Images for tooth range panel is selected by default, but you can select a different image to compare with the original.
To modify how an image is being viewed, clicktap the Original or Compared image, and then do any of the following for the selected image:
Use the (yellow or blue) Brightness/Contrast button to change the brightness and/or contrast.
Use the (yellow or blue) Zoom slider to zoom in and out.
While zoomed in on an image, drag the blue square (on the comparison image on the Images for tooth range panel) or the yellow square (on the image under Image Navigator) to pan to another part of the image.
Linking the images being compared allows the zooming and panning of one image to be synchronized with the other. To link images, do the following:
ClickTap the Original or Compared image (zoomed and panned or not).
ClickTap the (yellow or blue) Link button .
The images are linked.
Note: If you alter the zoom and/or pan of an image before linking it to the other, when you link them, the zoom factor and the position of the pan box (yellow or blue box) of the other image is synchronized to be the same as the first.
Now, as you zoom in and out and pan, both images are affected.
Note: To unlink the images, clicktap the Link button .
ClickTap Finish Comparison.
