New Patient Exams


Performing an Exam

This section guides you through procedures commonly used in performing patient exams with
the system. These procedures include entering patient data; acquiring, annotating, and
reviewing images; and making measurements and calculations.
New Patient Exams
Failing to end the current exam before starting a new exam can result in data being acquired
and stored under the wrong patient name.
You start an exam by entering patient data into the system. There are two ways to enter
patient data.
• If the Modality Worklist feature is disabled or unused on your system, you enter patient
data into the Patient Data form.
• If your system is connected to a DICOM network with the Modality Worklist feature
enabled, you can select an exam to load patient data instead of entering that information
manually. See
If you want to start an exam without first entering patient data, you can select Use Temporary
ID after you acquire an image.
The system uses a unique ID to identify each patient. You can enter an ID, or you can have the
system create one automatically. Stored images, fetal growth graphs, and reports are stored
based on the patient ID.
If the sonographer name needs to be different on images within the exam, end the current
exam and append a new exam with the images from the new sonographer.
An accession number is an optional entry assigned to each patient file by an institution for
internal information-management purposes.
The exam date is set by the system when you first acquire an image during the exam.
