The Extended Seriespicker
tip Label


By default the extended series picker is not enabled. You can activate this by going to your user settings and enable the option: 'Show prior studies in series picker'.
See Preferences for more information.
Extended series picker
The studies are grouped in the extended series picker as follows:
Current open study
Relevant: Prior studies from the same patient, considered as relevant for the open study
Other prior studies
For an order with more than 1 primary study the same grouping applies but for every primary study there is a tab to switch between the studies.
Filters in series picker
Extra filters can be used to filter an excessive series picker list. See image below:
1. Same modality
2. Same procedure
3. Has report
4. Has images
5. Is not cancelled
Behaviour of the filters
The filters "same modality", "same procedure" and "has report" are not sticky. These filters will be reset to disabled when opening another study.
The filters "has images" and "is not cancelled" are sticky. These filters are remembered when opening another study.
Linking relevant studies
Within the series picker, there are two ways to link different procedures as relevant.
1. By linking manually:
In the extended series picker, click the 'P' icon in the top left corner of the procedure you want to link as relevant.
The icon will change to indicate that the procedure is now marked as relevant with high priority.
By clicking the icon a second time, the procedure will remain linked as relevant but now with low priority.
2. Linking when comparing.
You can automatically compare the current study with another study by:
clicking the study description in the extended seriespicker
hovering over the label in the patient history and click "Compare Study"
In both cases, a pop-up will be shown in the right bottom corner of the screen, asking if you want to mark the related procedure as relevant for the procedure of the current study.
Click YES, if you want to link these procedures.
Unlink a relevant procedure:
Unlinking a procedure as relevant can be done by clicking the same icon in the extended series picker.
If the procedure is marked as relevant with low priority, one click on the icon unlinks the procedure.
When a procedure is marked as relevant with high priority, it has to be clicked twice.
Click 1: Procedure gets low priority linking
Click 2: Procedure is unlinked as relevant
Note Label


With these links, a link is made between procedures, not between studies.
This implies that, when linking procedures as relevant with studies from one patient, the same will occur for other patients that had the same studies.
caution-patient-safety Label


A link with a relevant procedure cannot be removed in case it has the study has the same procedure as the open study.
Note Label


Relevant linked procedures are registered on a user level and therefor apply only within the context of a user account.
In case the user option 'AutoCompare' has been activated, the study at the top of the Prior list will automatically be shown in compare when loading a study.
The list with Prior studies contains:
The first study of the same order as the current study
The first relevant linked study
Any other study from this patient
A prior study is automatically considered Relevant if it has the same procedure as the current study.
