  • System Preferences are typically only accessible by administrators and are not visible to standard users
importing and exporting preferences
Importing and Exporting Preferences
  • Importing and Exporting Preferences
  • Many preference settings can be imported and exported to facilitate setting up User and System Preferences
  • The User Preferences that can be imported and exported are Window Width/Center and Filters
  • The System Preferences that can be imported and exported are Window Width/Center, Filters, Annotation, DICOM Sources, Screen Overlays, Paper Printing, Organization Dictionary, Location Dictionary and Body Part Dictionary
  • Please note that importing preferences will override any preferences in the system

Logon Welcome Message
  • The ‘Logon welcome message’ shown at left is displayed on the log-in page
image series linking
Image/Series Linking
  • iSite System Administrators can set the number of degrees to allow for linking variance
  • This determines if a series can be linked with another series and this variance is configurable at a site level
allow dicom query from exam timeline
Allow DICOM Query From Exam Timeline
  • The ‘Allow DICOM Query From Exam Timeline’ option permits users to perform a DICOM query from the Exam Timeline if the user has the Security Code ISTQUERY
allow exams to be marked read more than once
Allow Exams to be Marked Read More Than Once
  • The ‘Allow Exams to be Marked Read More Than Once’ option permits users to “Mark Read” exams which have already been marked as read
  • The ‘Allow Exams to be Marked Read More Than Once’ is useful for over reads and peer review
image orientation
Image Orientation
  • The ‘Image Orientation’ option allows iSite System Administrators to allow users to set their own flipping preferences for Axial CTs or always display Axial and Oblique CTs with the anatomical right on the left side of the image window
image orientation17
Image Orientation
  • Please note that the visibility of this option is dependent on the System Preferences set by your institution\'s iSite System Administrator
image orientation18
Image Orientation
  • Users who wish to automatically display axial and oblique CTs with the anatomical right displayed on the left, regardless of the initial orientation of the image, may select the “Axial/Oblique CT:…" box
window width center20
Window Width/Center
  • Users may select the Window Width and Center dialog to add, modify or delete the default preset window width and center values display
window width center21
Window Width/Center
  • The Add Window Width/Center may be used to create new Window Width/Center presets by establishing a name, indicating the Modality and setting the Width and Center
window width center22
Window Width/Center
  • To edit a window width and center setting, “double click” a listing or highlight a listing and click the ‘Properties’ button
  • When you have finished making changes, click ‘Apply’ and then ‘OK’ to save and exit the Dialog box
window width center23
Window Width/Center
  • Window Width/Center settings are mapped to the number keys in the order displayed here and in the Context Menu, so that users may apply a Window Width/Center setting easily while viewing images
image processing25
Image Processing
  • Edge Enhance: Uses a Laplacian method to increase the visibility of edges in the image
  • Edge Detection: Provides an alternative to the Edge Enhance tool, using a Sobel operator to increase the visibility of edges
  • Median Filtering: Uses a common filtering method to reduce noise in an image
  • CLAHE (Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization): Uses an adaptive form of histogram equalization that enhances the contrast adaptively across the image
image processing26
Image Processing
  • Image Processing Filters have several configurable parameters which may be configured by each individual user
image processing27
Image Processing
  • Image Processing Filters can be applied manually (via a right mouse click option)
  • Any time an Image Processing Filter is applied to an image, iSite displays a “P ” (Processed) Icon in the meta data area of that image
image processing edge enhance
Image Processing – Edge Enhance
  • ‘Edge Enhance’ is performed with a Laplacian operator to discriminate the edges; the result is scaled and added back into the original image data
  • A 5 point or 9 point operator may be selected
image processing edge enhance29
Image Processing – Edge Enhance
  • The intensity of ‘Edge Enhance’ is controlled by the “degree” parameter which can be “Light”, “Medium” or “Strong”
  • Edge Enhance is applicable to any monochrome image
image processing edge enhance30
Image Processing – Edge Enhance

The image on the right side has the ‘Edge Enhance’ filter applied

image processing edge detect
Image Processing – Edge Detect
  • This class of algorithm accentuates the rising and falling components of edges
  • This is done with a Sobel operator; the result is scaled and added back into the original image data
image processing edge detect32
Image Processing – Edge Detect
  • The intensity of ‘Edge Detect’ is controlled by the “degree” parameter which can be “Light”, “Medium” or “Strong”
image processing edge detect33
Image Processing – Edge Detect

The image on the right side has the ‘Edge Detect’ filter applied

image processing median filter
Image Processing – Median Filter
  • ‘Median Filter’ is used as a noise reduction filter
  • Neighborhoods around each pixel are sampled and the central pixel is replaced with the median value of the neighborhood
  • A 3x3 or 5x5 filter may be selected
image processing median filter35
Image Processing – Median Filter

The image on the right side has the ‘Median Filter’ applied

image processing clahe
Image Processing - CLAHE
  • Contrast Limited Adaptive Histogram Equalization (CLAHE) is a variant of histogram equalization
  • The drawback of the general histogram equalization method is that the computation is performed across the entire image
image processing clahe37
Image Processing - CLAHE
  • In medical images, the local behavior of the histogram can be radically different than either the global, or non-local behavior
  • This class of method performs the histogram equalization on a parameterized region-by-region basis and stitches the results to prevent any boundary edges
image processing clahe38
Image Processing - CLAHE
  • The following parameters can be set via the “Preferences”
  • Contextual Region Dimension
  • Number Of Bins
  • Clip Limit
  • Map Level
image processing clahe39
Image Processing – CLAHE

The image on the right side has ‘CLAHE’ applied

dicom sources60
DICOM Sources
  • Histogram Calculation
    • This is the default selection in the ‘Add DICOM Source’ dialog
    • The histogram is a graph showing the total tonal distribution in the image
    • The histogram maps Luminance, which is defined from the way human eye perceives the brightness of different colors
    • Every pixel in the color or gray image computes to a luminance value between 0 and 255. The histogram uses bins to graph the pixel count of every possible value of luminance or brightness. The total tonal range of a pixel’s 8 bit tone value is 0 to 255, where the 0 is the blackest at the left end and 255 is the whitest at the right end
dicom sources61
DICOM Sources
  • DICOM Values
    • DICOM Values are the Window Center and Window Width values provided by the modality
    • DICOM Sources utilizing DICOM Values should be configured for a specific AE Title to ensure that images from other devices are not impacted
