adding more format is good but it would be a nice thing to let the user decide which one he really needs.
at least there should be an option to customize the order of the available formats so users who only have 2 different film sizes could put them on top instead of having to scroll trough a long list.
something like this is possible in the list of PACS nodes location; I can customize the list order by manually editing the proper .ini file
is there any .ini file I could tweak the film size order this way?
Unfortunately not but we have your feature request in our system. And we also have an idea how to accomplish this without too much effort.
New features come with a lot of documentation and validation overhead when developing medical devices so we cannot ship them in short cycles.
In the end I have to ask for your patience.
you should reconsider this...
64bit is the future... image data volume is always rising and sooner or later all 32bit DICOM viewers will become obsolete
Sure. It's not like we don't want it. Many dependencies make this a big challenge. Internal and external libraries need to be compiled with 64 bit, too. All those third party integrations have to work as well. Every vendor specific DICOM incompliance, that has been fixed, has to work on 64 bit as well.
Next year we will be working on some substantial improvements and we will also check how far we will come on the path to 64 bit.
Until iQ-VIEW 4.0 I hope our patches (like our current 3.1.2) will improve your current experience.
I like to mention that iQ-VIEW is fully capable of supporting russian character sets and also comes with a translated russian user interface.
I'm sorry to say but the opposite is true. We added more formats.
Good news. The iQ-VIEW 3.1 development is close to finish. In december we will stop the implementation and start the validation process. A lot of documentation has to be created as well.
The biggest improvement will be seen in the automatic previous study management, which is now able to include studies based on similar patient names (mitigating typos or different patient IDs in the PACS).
There will also be some speed improvements concerning the study retrieval and new print formats.
Hello Dr. Bartalena,
I'm sorry but at the moment we are not planning a 64 bit update. This would be a huge effort with incalculable expense.
Good things will come to those who wait. In this sense, we are proud to announce the long-awaited release of our radiology reading station software iQ-VIEW 3.0.
We are convinced that your patience will totally pay off, as we have included a number of innovative features, among which are included the following:
iQ-VIEW 3.0 Feature Highlights:
- Automatic previous studies management
- Intelligent radiology reading station that automatically presents relevant prior studies for a patient across all modalities (iQ-VIEW PRO only)
- Customizable visual styles
- Choose a different visual style for your application in order to create a more comfortable working experience, especially for reading room conditions
- Performance improvements
- Super fast zoom/pan now 10x faster
- Super fast multi-frame object opening
- New thumbnail selection for series preview; the middle image of a series can be selected instead of the first image
- Easier image processing and better image reading through improved functions
- New right-click context for fast access to frequently used functions
- New “Magnifier” tool now with 16 bit interpolation and zoom factor presets
- Easy synchronization of cranio-caudal acquired series with caudo-cranial series
- “Cine mode” now combined with “Bind mode”
- New mouse cursors available in different sizes
- New mouse cursor shapes in various sizes indicate selected tools
- Windows 10
- Full compatibility with Windows 10 Professional and above
Give our freshly released iQ-VIEW 3.0 a try and test this new and improved version by downloading it from our Download Center.
Detailed information on iQ-VIEW 3.0 is available in the product brochure and a quick overview of the new features and functions can be found in the iQ-VIEW 3.0 flyer.
- Automatic previous studies management
Hello Dr. Bartalena,
we have so far completed the implementation phase, so now we need to finalize the documentation and validation phase. This will take several weeks, especially due to the holidays at the end of the year.
I cannot read the error message.
Are you trying to burn from the network? Download the studies from the pacs and burn them from your local imagebox.
Please contact your vendor who provided the license for appropriate instructions.
Dear Dr. Bartelena,
I'm sorry to hear that. As always, your vendor should be the first person you should contact in case of technical support.
Since you are aware of the option to regenrate the database or re-import the database, I guess this will take very long for your large database.
In such cases I usually take a look at the content of the "kpstudy.dir" in the database directory. This file represents all registered studies. Every study is listed as a separate line. Sometimes there are visual clues that lead to a corrupted display (blank lines and the like).
I would look which study is the last study displayed in the Study Browser. Then I'd search for that study in the kpstudy.dir and look for abnormalities in the surrounding study entries.
Quote from Parslov
Will I be able to setup KPACS or iQ-view to automatically export incoming files to a local drive?
No, that is not possible.
If you clarify your intention or desired workflow we might find another option to resolve your issue.
These are long known issues.
The links should help you understand the issue and show how to handle it.
The behavior will be fixed in the upcoming iQ-VIEW 3.0. But that will take some months.
Allthough an upgrade to 2.8 is not fixing your problem, it is nevertheless recommended and mandatory if you ever want to use a 64 Bit Windows operating system.
