You can delete a single image or a series of images from a patient's record. You can delete images only if they are not associated with procedures that are attached to insurance claims.
Notes: The procedures that are associated with the images that you are deleting will also be deleted or voided (if older than 120 days).
To delete images
If the correct patient is not already selected, use the Patient Search box to access the patient's record.
Note: You can include inactive patients in the search results by setting the Include inactive patients switch to On.
On the Patient menu, under Clinical, click (or tap) Chart, Progress Notes, Quick Exam, Perio, Tx Planner, or Imaging. Then, on the Imaging tab's menu, click (or tap) Show Image History.
The patient's imaging page opens to the history view. The most recent image, series (such as a full mouth series or bitewings), or set of photos (which was acquired using a custom imaging procedure) is selected by default on the Images tab.
Select an image or a series (such as a full mouth series or bitewings).
If you have selected a series, and you want to delete a specific image of that series, under Image Navigator, click (or tap) that image.
Do one of the following:
Delete the entire series or the exam with one image:
On the corresponding options menu, click (or tap) Delete exam.
The Delete Exam confirmation message appears.
Click (or tap) Delete.
Delete the selected image within the series:
Either click (or tap) the Delete button, or select the Delete Image option on the More menu.
A confirmation message appears.
Click (or tap) Yes.
Can you delete only 1 image within the exam?
That functionality does not exist, but it seems like a good feature to request. Go the the Help (?) menu in Dentrix Ascend, and select "Request a Feature" to submit it.
