How do I save a CBCT from Planmeca Romexis?

  • On your Desktop, anywhere you don't have an icon, Right click --> New --> Folder and name the folder with the patient’s name
  • Click on the PATIENTS ICON in Romexis to select the volume you want to export and load the scan
  • Go to OUTPUT --> EXPORT VOLUME
  • Select the following settings:
    • File & Format Options: Set of Single Frame DICOM Files
    • Resolution: Original
    • Overlay options: (NO CHECK MARKS)
    • Export 3D Volume to: Folder
    • Viewer Options: (NO CHECK MARKS. VIEWER IS NOT NEEDED)
    • Folder: Use the “…” box at the far right. Browse for the folder you created on your desktop with the patient’s name. Select that as your export location
    • File Name: Labeling your files is very beneficial. Please include the Patient Name, Study Type information (example: Mandible/Maxilla/TMJ/etc.) and date, if possible
  • Select OK to export the DICOM files
  • Once completed, return to the Desktop & locate the file you created with the patient’s name
  • Right Click once on the file and go to 'Send to' --> 'Compressed (zipped) folder'
  • This will compress the hundreds of individual DICOM files from the CT scan into one .zip file that can be uploaded to the patient's case on the BeamReaders website
