Sheets: Patient Images

Patient images are a Sheet Element that adds a patient-specific image. The image inserted in the generated sheet will be the image last added to the Images module category selected for the element. If you plan to include multiple images, store each image in a separate category. Supported image types include .bmp, .gif, .exif, .jpg, .png, and .tiff.


  • To show a patient's picture, store all patient pictures in the same image category, then select the image category for this element.
  • To show pre and post treatment images, create two PatImage sheet elements. The pre-treatment images should be stored in one image category; the post-treatment images should stored in another.

On the Edit Sheet Def window, click PatImage.

Image Category:  Select the Images category where the images are stored. When the sheet is created, the first image listed in the category will always be used.

X and Y Pos: Set the location of the upper left corner of the image in relation to the x and y axis. X = horizontal.  Y = vertical.

Width: The width of the image.

Height: The height of the image.
