IN THIS ARTICLE

When accessing a patient, the Actions menu and the various right sidebars listed in this article are always available regardless of the current tab.

Editing a Patient

  1. With a patient opened, click on the Actions menu in the top right corner of the page and press Edit.

Downloading Patient Objects

ProKnow DS allows you to download the archived DICOM files for any (or all) objects associated with a patient. It is important to note that ProKnow DS will never modify any DICOM file uploaded into the system. Any modifications to an existing object (e.g., as a result of contouring) will create a new DICOM file and a new version of the object. Furthermore, any changes to the patient information within ProKnow DS will only be reflected in new DICOM files generated after the modifications have been made (to ensure that ProKnow DS acts as a DICOM archive).

  1. With a patient opened, click on the Actions menu in the top right corner of the page and press Download.
  2. Use the checkbox to select the patient objects to include in the download and press the Download button. An Active Downloads popup will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen that indicates when the download is being prepared and when the download has started.
  3. Locate the file in your downloads folder.

Note: When downloading structure sets using the patient download tool, you will always download the current version of each structure set. For more information on structure set versions and instructions on how to download a previous version of a structure set, please refer to the Structure Set Versions documentation.
