Sometimes "lost images" can be a symptom of images being captured without being associated or attached to a specific patient. By default, if attempting to capture under "Nobody", a warning message should appear when pressing any capture button if a patient is not currently open in XrayVision (though this warning may be quickly clicked through, or permanently dismissed, by accident).
When an image is captured under "Nobody", XrayVision will prompt the user to manually save the image(s) somewhere when attempting to close the image/software. If the location to the manually saved images is remembered, the images can be imported into the correct patient by following the guide Importing Images - XrayVision. If the images are not manually saved, then those images are permanently lost.
To avoid this issue, the ability to capture images under "Nobody" can be disabled, forcing a patient to be opened within XrayVision before the capture process can even begin. Follow the steps below to disable the ability to capture images without a specific patient being active in XrayVision.
These settings are PC SPECIFIC and will need to be repeated on every computer individually.
- Within XrayVision, select the Tools menu and click on Options.
- Under the General tab, within the X-ray/Capture Warnings section, check the box next to Prevent image capture under nobody.
- Click OK to return to the main screen of XrayVision
The images above are for XrayVision v4, but the steps are identical for XrayVision v3.
