The PhotoStation Manager™ turns any Windows® compatible computer into an image processing platform that makes it easy to organize, enhance, and communicate your photo image documentation data. The PhotoStation Manager can reduce the amount of time spent hand measuring wounds allowing you to see more patients.
The PhotoStation Manager provides you with the tools you need to add or edit graphical notations and take measurements fromyour photo images. The PhotoStation Manager keeps all your notations and measurement data separate from the original photo image, ensuring that your original digital data never changes.
You can measure the size of features in any photo image if you include a rectangular size marker of a known size in the photo image. This means you can measure the length, width, and area of any feature in your photo image, allowing you to track changes in size over time. The Wound Care Edition supports up to 5 default sized rulers you can set up, or you can create a custom-sized ruler for each photo image.
To set the size scale for a single photo image, use the mouse to automatically or manually place the ruler in the photo image. The PhotoStation Manager calculates the size and orientation of the marker giving you accuracy even when your perspective is at a slight angle. Once the ruler is set, you can measure using the line, ellipse, rectangle, multi-point, or pen tool.
All measurements are listed in a separate measurement area on the screen called the Enhancement Details Panel. Measurements can be displayed in English or Metric Units and based on a selected corresponding size (e.g. Size in Millimeters or Centimeters, Inches, etc). Each Enhancement drawn on a Photo Image is given a separate entry in the Enhancement Details Panel and can be named by the user. Measurements displayed (Perimeter, Area, Depth, Volume, etc.) can be turned on or off in Setup. Report outputs that include the measurement details can be additionally created using the PhotoStation Manager.
An Open Software Solution
The PhotoStation Manager is based on open system standards. Our goal is to free you to use your photo-images in a way that fits best with your existing business workflow. The PhotoStation Manager captures images in the standard JPEG format, stored in an easy to access the file system. We never make any changes to the original JPEG source photo image files once they are stored in our system. All Record Details, Capture Date Details, and image annotation data saved in the industry-standard XML format, separate from the JPEG source files.
