Back to Basics: Viewer Configuration Series Pt. 1

The Ambra Viewer is built and maintained by Ambra’s engineering team, who’ve developed a complete diagnostic experience with full viewing functionality. Ambra engineers are fully committed to improving and developing the Ambra Viewer, and continuously add in customer requests and industry leading viewer tool sets. Ambra’s goal is for users to feel confident in customizing their viewing configurations based on their unique preferences and workflows. In this three part BTB series, we are going to review some simple recommendations on how to tailor the Viewer to meet your workflow needs. 

Common General Settings to Customize:

  • Layout: Default Layout, Layout Single Series
  • Mouse Tools: Set defaults for left/right click mouse holds 
  • Key Images: Makes the visible study image, highlighted with a blue bounding box, a key image
  • Related Studies: Show related studies; only priors, automatically load related studies
  • Reports: Show PDFs, display reports first in viewer
  • Annotations: Always Use Millimeters, Measurements Text Size, Measurements Show Details, Ultrasound Measurements, Measurements – Toggle All Series, Text Overlay – Toggle All Series, Ruler – Toggle All Series.  Allow Volume Measurements. Show Small Angle Only (Cobb)

Part 2 of this series is coming next week, and it will be about customizing the Viewer toolbar.
