How to Print or Save a MRI image?

Postby Donnchadh » Sat Apr 10, 2010 8:37 pm

After going through my MRI MRV, there are a couple of images I would like to either print out or save to my hard drive so I can post them on the internet.

The images have been recorded on Agfa CD Viewer 4.5.1

Any suggestions?

If you can see images on the computer screen you can simply click a "print screen" button, then open paint and Paste the image there. Then, manipulate the image as you wish.

Donnchadh,

I'm not familiar with the Agfa viewer, but there ought to be an "Export", or "Save As" feature. Just check out different "buttons" - starting with "File" - in the top-left corner usually. Then pick a place to export or save to. It might help to make a folder ahead of time in Documents, or such, and name it MRV, or whatever. Then you have a target to save images to.

I've had different CDs, with different software, but they have all had an "Export" feature. I'm sure yours will too. Sometimes right-clicking on a picture will give you a save option.

Can't wait to see the pics. Good luck!

Another option is to download a free photo editing program called "The GIMP" which stands for Gnu Image Manipulation Program from http://www.gimp.org. It offers many of the same photo editing tools that can be found in other programs like Photoshop.

By the way, I have never used Agfa CD Viewer 4.5.1 but it may have an image export function. Have you found anything like this?

Well, I have been playing around with the images and found the help file.

But there doesn't seem to be either an export function or print built in this reader.

capturing/printing

Postby mag00 » Sun Apr 11, 2010 10:42 am

Hi,

As ndwannabe mentioned, I too use the PRTSC key and paste
it into GIMP or PhotoShop etc.

Alternatively, pressing the alt key in combination with print screen will capture the currently selected window.

Print screen (often abbreviated Prt Scr, Print Scrn, Prt Scn, Prt Sc, Prt Scrn, or Prnt Scrn) is a key present on most PC keyboards. It is typically situated in the same section as the break key and scroll lock key. Print screen is shared with system request.

above paragraph copy/pasted from wikipedia

I had run into the exact same problem. Hope this helps.

Have you looked at the CD's contents in Windows Explorer (if you're using windows of course)? The image files may already be there in a readily accessible format such as jpg, tif, etc.

You can take those folders and click drag them to your desktop from the CD, assuming the viewer on your CD doesn't have an export option, and also assuming you aren't happy with the PrtScn option on your keyboard as the previous poster delineated.

If your looking for a conversion program, there is also the free "Spin" software that is linked somewhere off of Dr Haake's website. It has too many "bells and whistles", so you may be interested CureIous.

I have previously used the "Print Screen" method I am sure has been mentioned above, and then taken the USB memory stick to one of those self service photo print places, and printed the image onto photo quality paper.

Great info on the Dcm2Jpg program! Thanks.

For anyone doing the print screen method. If you can't fit the whole image on your screen to get a good capture, then bump up your screen resolution. For example, if you normally use 1024x768 then go to 1600x1200. You'll get more of the image in the window when you hit print screen.

Wanted to also toss in that these images aren't usually that high of a res themselves. Looking at a couple in my files, they are pretty sparse, 573x612, 17Kb, that's about the norm they are small files, small pictures so blowing them up is going to be a grainy affair...The ones I saved directly from cd at 1024x1024 are a bit better tho...
