The button (12) on the screen opens a new window from which the user can export a study and its report in 4 ways:
1) Clicking on the option EXPORT TO .CSV opens a new window in which the user must choose where to create and save a folder with a .csv file. The folder name is generated automatically and corresponds to the study identification number (ID). The language of the table is the same with the language of the report.
The table contains two columns – “Diagnostics” and “Results”.
The first two rows of the table are “Study ID” and “Date”.
The following rows for each level (L1 to L5) are present in the “Diagnostics” column:
• Presence of herniation;
• Grade of nerve root compression;
• Compression of a dural sac caused by a herniation;
• Position of the herniation;
• Herniation size;
• Herniation migration;
• Presence of bulging;
• Bulging symmetry;
• Bulging position;
• Presence of central stenosis;
• Grade of stenosis;
• Presence of spondylolisthesis;
• Grade of spondylolisthesis;
• Direction of spondylolisthesis
In addition, pathologies that are not associated with a certain level are present after the L5 level. These are “Presence of hypo- and hyperlordosis” and “Accurate determination of levels”. By default, the result against “Correct level definition” is always “Yes”.
If the user clicks the MOVE UP or MOVE DOWN buttons, the value changes to “No”.
In the column “Results” for each of the pathologies for each level is marked for the presence – “Yes” or “No”, and for the degree – according to the classification settings selected by the user.
Adding or removing pathology and changing a modifier from the pathology panel (15) or full report (11) is transferred to the “Results” column.
2) Clicking on the option EXPORT TO .PDF opens a new window in which the user must select where to save the report generated by the software in .pdf format, as well as the file name. This is the same functionality as the “Save” button on full report, but in .pdf format.
If the study is not supported, the user can save the report, but information about pathologies will not be filled in automatically, i.e. the fields will be empty.
3) Clicking on the option EXPORT TO DICOM opens a new window, allowing the user to select a directory where the study should be exported in standard DICOM format. All series of the study are exported – the original and generated by the software with superimposed segmentations and measurements on them. The last directory to which the study was exported opens each time the option is selected. By default, the directory from which the study was loaded opens. The user can set exactly what to export in the study from the software settings from the button SETTINGS (14) – DICOM Export Settings.
The software retains all mandatory standard DICOM tags. All information in them is validated in accordance with the DICOM standard.
4) Clicking on the option EXPORT TO PACS SERVER exports the report and series generated by the software to the hospital’s PACS server. In case the study is not supported by the software, the original series, together with a .pdf file with information about why the study is not supported, are exported to the PACS server without a report. A report is exported only if the user has written it manually.
