Calibrating Scale

Calibrating a scale only needs to be done once as all imaging is taken with the same machine. Once calibrated, lines can be measured using the Measure tool.

  1. Take an image with a known length. This can be done on a test patient.
  2. Draw a line along the known length on the image.
  3. Click Set Scale, then cancel out of the window.
  4. Click on the line of the known length. The Image Scale window will open again with the Pixels pre-populated.
  5. Enter the known length in the Image Scale window, then click Calculate.
  6. The Pixels per mm field will populate. Take note of this number.
  7. Enter the Pixels per mm number in two places:

When measuring a line on an image in a mount, the calculation is done automatically.

To measure a line on a single image, not within a mount, enter the scale manually.
