One of the first things to do with the software is open some DICOM images so you can try out the viewing capabilities of the Workstation. To do this:

1.Download some sample images from the internet, or from the downloads page of our website.
2.In the Explorer (which appears by default when you start the application), click on the My Computer tab.


3.Select the image(s) or the folder(s) that contains the images you want to load. You can Ctrl-Click to select multiple (individual) images/folders, or Shift-Click to select a range.
4.Bring up the context menu by right-clicking on the file(s) or folder(s) and select Open. This will open up the selected images for viewing in a new tab.
