Save Image Data

This function enables the images to be saved as picture files. The slices can be saved individually (sagittal, coronal or transversal) or all in one image. A Maximum intensity Projection (MIP) picture can also be saved using this feature (MIP viewer must be active). Images will appear exactly as they do in the viewer.

Getting There

Four different methods exist for saving images.

The first method is to go to "Save Image" under the File menu.

The second method is to use the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+I". For more on keyboard shortcuts in VQ, please see Keyboard Shortcuts.

The third method to save image slices is to use the thumbnail in the Main Window.

The fourth method is through the MIP Control, which can be opened via the thumbnail in the Main Window. There is an option here to save the image.


Selection of the "Save Image" option opens the Save Image window.

There are several options for the output images.
