Read DICOM shows the Windows file selection box in which to choose a single DICOM file to read.
Read Multiple DICOMS shows the Windows file selection box in which one or more DICOM files can be selected. Holding down the <shift> key selects a range of files. Pressing the <control> key permits selection of individual files. A 3D set of files must be selected with this method.
DICOM Filter Dialog is under development. It will present options for choosing multiple DICOM files.
The Dictionary submenu contains items affecting the DICOM dictionary. The dictionary is required to read some DICOM formats.
Select shows the Windows file selection box in which to choose the dictionary to read.
Load reads the dictionary. The dictionary is usually read automatically when required.
UnLoad removes the dictionary from memory.
When Store Descriptions is checked, the program stores a short description of the DICOM data elements; the current version of Scan2MCNP does not use the descriptions.
Read IMG File shows the Windows file selection box in which to choose a .IMG file to read.
Read Multiple IMG Files shows the Windows file selection box in which one or more DICOM files can be selected. Holding down the <shift> key selects a range of files. Pressing the <control> key permits selection of individual files. A 3D set of files must be selected with this method. It should not be used to read a single file.
Write MCNP shows the Windows file selection box in which to specify the MCNP input file to write. If a 3D data set is present, that data is converted to MCNP format. Otherwise, only the image in the active window is converted.
Preview MCNP converts the scan data to MCNP input and displays it in a window. The input listing is read only-it cannot be edited.
View in Sabrina / View in Moritz converts the scan data to MCNP input and sends the input file to the Sabrina or Moritz programs for visualization, starting the other program if necessary. Additional visualization commands, such as color assignments, are included in the file. If the program takes too long to start, Scan2MCNP may not send the file-try again with the other program running.
The Sabrina Executable and Moritz Executable items in the View Setup submenu tell Scan2MCNP where to find the external viewers. The programs will run in the directory chosen with the Run Sabrina in and Run Moritz in items-choose any file in the desired directory. The file passed from Scan2MCNP to the external program is written to this directory.
The items in the Read submenu show the Windows file selection box for loading various types of data:
Boundaries reads a file containing partition boundaries and the materials and names assigned to the partitions. The expected suffix is .bdy.
MCNP Options reads a file of parameters for creating a voxel grid and other items affecting the conversion to MCNP input. The expected suffix is .mco.
Material Library loads a file containing material definitions. The library is usually loaded automatically when needed. The expected suffix is .lib.
Segmentation Data loads a file giving cell, material, color, and name assignments to pixel values for use with segmented images. The expected suffix is .seg.
ICRP 110 Data loads ASCII voxel data for an human model defined in ICRP publication 110. It may work with other types of data consisting of ASCII voxel numbers.
ICRP Organs loads the segmentation file to be used with the ICRP 110 data.
ICRP Media loads the material file to be used with the ICRP 110 data. This file must be read first, followed by the Organs file, and then the Data file. When reading a data file named
X.dat, the files
X_organs.datare read automatically if they are present in the same directory and have not already been loaded.
The items in the Write submenu show the Windows file selection box for specifying files to which to write various types of data:
Boundaries writes a file containing partition boundaries and the materials and names assigned to the partitions. The expected suffix is .bdy.
MCNP Options writes a file of parameters for creating a voxel grid and other items affecting the conversion to MCNP input. The expected suffix is .mco.
IMG Parameters writes a file containing the information on the IMG Parameters dialog and crop settings for the IMG file (if loaded) in the active image window. No file selection box is shown; the file name and location are the same as the IMG file except for a suffix if .imd instead of .img.
1. ... 5. are the most recently used DICOM files. Selecting one of the items loads that file.
[Multiple] is the most recently used set of multiple DICOM files. Selecting the items loads the files.
Close hides the active window. When an image window is active, Close destroys the window but does not remove the image data from memory.
Close + Delete Data destroys an image window and also removes the image data from memory.
Delete All Images destroys all loaded images and closes all image windows.
Exit terminates program execution. The program state, including window sizes & positions and information settable in menus and dialogs, is save to the Windows registry before termination.
Exit w/o Registry Save terminates the program but does not save any information to the Windows registry.
