View X-Ray Images on Cell Phones to Tablets
Metron Image View Options

Have you ever wondered if you could view your Metron images on another device without the Metron Imaging Software installed?
The Metron Web-Viewer is a great feature because you can post images and reports which can be viewed on any device, anywhere. Once posted, you can view the images and reports on tablets, phones, laptops, and servers just by going to the  website portal.

The best is FREE!

Why would you post images? Many reasons! Sharing is caring! 
Plus you can share images with the guided or free markup detail displayed. With that information, you can emphasize areas of interest. Add voice annotation to the image file recording a message for your patient. Posting reports about the study is a definite value as well since you can include the guided markup table of parameters.

There are two approaches to use this feature: 
In Practice Use. If you have several exam rooms and you would like to view X-Ray images with your patient owners, you are able to do so. Or if the doctor would like to look at the images on his/her own office or home computer before consultation.
Sharing images outside the office with a client or referral clinic. With this method, you will create a unique user ID - preferably the client phone number. Doctors or technicians would post images and reports either when they receive a request from their client or after the study is completed.  Metron users call, email, or text their client providing the Metron 
Web-Viewer website, and User ID for client access. 
You can post as much and as often as you would like to the Metron Web-Viewer. Just remember after a week the images and reports will automatically be removed. . 
With the Metron Web-Viewer, you can bring your practice up a notch by sharing valuable Metron X-Ray image information with your patients.
