Using compare mode on a dual-monitor system allows you to control the images on each monitor independent of the other monitor. This allows you to compare different parts of the same study (e.g. right kidney at the beginning of the image set on the left monitor and left kidney at the end of the image set on the right monitor), or different studies for the same patient (e.g. aortic study from today on the left monitor and aortic study from 2009 on the right monitor).
In this mode, move your mouse to the image monitor you want to scroll, then either use the mouse wheel or the scroll bar to navigate through images. To change to the other monitor, move your mouse to that monitor and scroll.
How To Enable or Disable This Mode
NOTE: This mode is tied to the user's login. If the user moves to another workstation, the mode will be preserved.
