Basic Interface Controls

Adjusting Depth

While live imaging, you can adjust the depth of the scan by sliding up and down on the image. Dozens of back-end adjustments are made to carefully optimize the image based on the depth chosen.


Adjust the brightness of the image by sliding left and right. Should you require more fine control, turning off the Auto Gain icon  will change the brightness to a 3 slider TGC control.


Double tapping on the image will default to a 200% zoom level. Double tapping again will revert back to 100%. At any time while zoomed, pinching the image will give finer control of the zoom level which ranges between 100% and 500%.

Capturing Videos and Adjusting Capture Length

Capturing Videos

  1. While live imaging, tap the cineloop icon. A countdown timer will display beside the icon and begin to count down as it records the cineloop video. When the counter disappears, the recording is saved.
  1. You can prematurely stop the recording by pressing the freeze button, or tapping on the cineloop icon

  2. After cineloop capture, imaging will freeze by default. To continue scanning, ensure in the App settings Auto Scan Post Cine is enabled.
  1. The total number of images captured is displayed in the Go to captures bubble text box in Patient Demographics page.

Adjusting Capture Length

  1. Tap and hold the cineloop icon to display a list of time options.
  2. Select the desired time length.


  1. Measurements can be made on the live imaging screen after the image has been frozen, as well as on a captured image prior to the exam being completed. To access measurements:

    1. Tap the Tools icon from the bottom menu and select the appropriate measurement tool.
    2. Start by placing 1 or more calipers on the screen. For each caliper placed, a small circular hit region will be created so that caliper adjustment can be made without your finger covering the caliper crosshair.
    3. To perform a trace measurement, place 1 caliper on the screen and then drag it around the wall of the ventricle. Once released, the 2nd caliper is placed, and both calipers can modified to continue or reverse the trace.
