OPS Forum Rules and 'Netiquette' Locked Topic 0 T. Bennett OPS Forum Rules and Netiquette The purpose of the OPS Forum is to provide connections between and support for OPS members. We want this to be a place where our community will develop; we can enjoy one another's company, share interests and foster education. To achieve this, we strive to maintain an atmosphere that can be enjoyed by all and we ask all members of the community to be respectful at all times. This means please use etiquette and politeness. Treat people with kindness, gentleness and respect. If you do this, the rest of the code of conduct won't need more than a cursory mention. The OPS Forum Moderators reserve the right to edit or delete any forumcontent that does not adhere to these rules. Start clear threads. Start your post with a clear specific subject. Post a follow up to let the people that help you know that you appreciate their help and let future readers know the information was useful. You can also mark a thread solved as a courtesy. Stay on topic. Each thread should stay on one topic. Off-topic messages may be deleted without notice. If you have made a mistake, apologize, and re-post to the correct thread, if one exists. Otherwise, start a new one. If your message is deleted, the poster is responsible for re-posting to the correct thread. Keep the language and tone polite and respectful and maintain decorum. Name calling, rudeness, disrespect toward others, insults, profanity or inappropriate discussion will not be tolerated. Any attempt to disrupt a thread or to promote discord is prohibited.

False Colour & NaFl 1 L. Breayley It influences the false color in the same way as the BR images are influenced. You can compare a pre-dye BR image with a post dye Pseudo Color image and look at the GR and BR images to get the direct comparison, but there is a definite influence from it.

Retcam Image Mass Export/Import 0 J. Strong Hi All We're finally going to retire our antique Retcam1 and we're hoping to export all the images and import them into our EMR or PACS. The trouble is figuring out how to match the archived images with the Pt demo info so it's actually a useful library outside of the Retcam software. Our instruments live in the ORs and i've never had adequate access to learn how to manage the images /DB so i'm working from a deficit. Anyone skin this cat and have suggestions? (no actual cats were harmed during this email) Thanks! J-

Dark Topcon Images 1 J. Griffith, OSC A quick first check would be to pull up old images and see how they display on the new systems. If they look good it tells you are dealing with a capture NOT a display issue. Changing a PC/software won't affect the light efficiency or optics of your camera (flash tube etc) - but it certainly can change the behavior of your sensor. You are barking up the right tree suspecting that the configuration of your sensors or capture software probably were reset or set to the defaults of perhaps newer sensors. Brightness/contrast are really fine tuning, you need to get into the real settings for the camera sensor(s) Gain&Gamma/Histograms/Sensitivity/ISO/etc or whatever Merge calls those controls. Maybe a Merge user can tell you where to look. Hopefully these are exposed in the software and not buried in a .INI config file. Best of luck! J-

Expired Fluorescein 6 D. Helgren, CRA I believe that you have to weigh the legal implications as well. In a clinical setting, if you introduce an expired pharmaceutical in to a patient and that patient has an adverse reaction that causes permanent damage or death, your consent form no longer absolves you of any responsibility because you knowingly used an expired injectable.
