Anatomy of a Study & Study Calculation

If this is your first time uploading a Study, your study will be uploaded without being placed inside a folder. If you wish to house the study in a folder, you may click the New Folder button. This is important because to share a study or series of studies, your data must be housed in a folder first before sharing. Only folders may be shared, not individual studies.

An individual study upload looks like this:

The buttons represent a calculation series within your study. In this particular study, certain calculation series may not have been fully compliant with qCal-MR protocol. This does not mean that they are completely non-compliant; rather, it is best to factor these feedback into your results. A calculation is non-compliant is indicated by a red triangle (not shown above).

Once you click on a calculation series button, your screen contains the following features, no matter which CMRI imaging phantom you’re using:

Study Information: shows information such as protocols, scanner type, scanner upload date, and additional scan parameters (accessed via the blue arrows in the last row). VOI Statistics: these statistics detail how your scanner output compares to NIST true values. Download CSV Report and Printable Report View: download your .csv and printable reports in the top right corner.
Volume View: The Volume View allows you to observe the phantom vials in axial, coronal, and sagittal orientations. Read more here.
ADC Value vs. Coronal Position: represents how your data correlates with NIST values. Read more here.
