How do I save a CBCT from Rayscan?

  • Create a new folder on your Desktop and put the patient's name on the folder (right-click anywhere on your Desktop where you do not already have an icon and go to New --> Folder. And then put the patients name in the highlighted area)
  • Open the Rayscan software and in the search tab, select the correct dates, and type in the patient’s name. Click the orange magnifying glass button to search.
  • Select the correct file and click “export”. After you see a pop-up box verifying that the patient information has been added to the export tab, click “ok”.
  • Next, click on the “export” tab and select the correct patient information. On the right-hand side, you will have different exporting options. If you need the media type, select “USB.” For “detail path” click on the magnifying glass button. A pop-up will now appear for the save location. Select the folder that you made on the desktop and click “ok.” Type in the patient’s name next to “volume label” and for the “image format” select DICOM. Then, click on “export.”
  • Once the export reaches 100%, you will get a pop-up stating it is complete. Click “ok.”
  • When the export is complete, there will be several hundred DICOM files in the folder with the patient's name on it. Compress the folder into a .zip file by right clicking the folder, going to 'Send to', and choosing 'Compressed (zipped) folder'.
  • Your computer will create a new icon on your Desktop with the patient's name on it that will likely look like a folder with a zipper on it. Upload that file to the patient's case on the BeamReaders website.
