How do I save a CBCT from Planmeca Romexis?

  • On your Desktop, create a new folder. Right-click anywhere you don't have an icon, go to 'New', and choose 'Folder'. Name the folder with the patient’s name
  • Open your Romexis software, click on the Patients icon, and open the scan of the patient
  • Once the scan is on-screen, click the Output button on the top toolbar and select Export Volume. (Note: If you are using Romexis version 6, click the Export button on the top toolbar)
  • Select the following settings (more details are under this screenshot):
    Planmeca Settings
    • File & Format Options: Set of Single Frame DICOM Files
    • Resolution: Original
    • Make sure 'Anonymize' is not checked
    • 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: We recommend entering at least the patient's first and last name. You can also include information about the type of scan it is (example: Mandible, Maxilla, TMJ/etc.)
  • Select OK to export the DICOM files
  • After the export is complete, compress the folder on the Desktop that has the patient’s name on it into a .zip file. Right-click on the folder, go to “Send to”, and choose “Compressed (zipped) folder”
  • Upload the .zip file to the patient’s case on the BeamReaders website
