FAQ / Exporting Calibration Images
« on: November 08, 2013, 10:53:01 am »
This post will give you the instructions to export a calibration file along with the images used to generate that calibration. These steps are for version 5 of Medmont Studio but the steps are very similar for version 4.

Enabling the E300 Instruments Tab.
If you haven't already, you will need to enable the E300 Instruments tab so you can see a list of all your E300 calibrations. To enable this tab follow these steps:

1. From the Ribbon bar menu select Configure > Studio > Preferences.
The Preferences dialog should now be displayed.
2. From the User Settings tab select Explorer Pane > E300.
3. Place a check/tick in the Display E300 Instruments checkbox.
4. Click on the OK button to apply the changes.

You should now have an E300 Instruments tab displayed at the bottom of your Patient Tree.



Exporting E300 Calibration Images
Once the E300 Instruments tab has been enabled, you will be able to navigate to the captured images and export them from Medmont Studio.

1. Click on the E300 Instruments tab at the bottom of the Patient Tree.
2. Find the node in the tree that corresponds to your instruments and expand it.
3. Once expanded you will see entries for each calibration you have performed. If you expand a calibration you have performed you will see a list of 5 images below it. Hold down Left Control Key and then Left click on the calibration date and time and each of the nodes under that calibration date.
4. From the ribbon bar menu click on the Application Button and select Export from the menu. This will prompt you to specify a location for the exported calibration file.

The latest version of Optomate (22) has a higher level of database security. As such it has required a change in the way Medmont Studio connect's to their system to retrieve patient information.

The latest release of Medmont Studio (5.3.2) now supports this higher level of database security and can be downloaded from the following location:

http://www.medmont.com/support/downloads/medmont-studio-5-downloads.aspx

To use the new version of Optomate you will need to select "Optomate Premier 22 or Greater" from the list of available practice management systems during the configuration process.




Once the configuration tool is complete you will need to re-link all of the records. This can be done following these steps:
  • Run Medmont Studio
  • From the ribbon bar menu select Home > External Data > Link Unlinked

This will relink all of the patient ID's in Optomate back to the patients in Medmont Studio.

This FAQ describes the steps involved in converting an existing Medmont Studio database to MS SQL. It does not cover the installation and configuration of an MS SQL server. This should be handled by your IT professional.

Backup Medmont Studio Data
Although Medmont Studio will not modify your existing database it is highly recommended that you backup your data before attempting the conversion. You current database can be found by following the steps described in the following FAQ:

Medmont Studio MS Access Database Location

Once you have found this folder make a copy and place it on a removable device such as a USB flash disk.

Converting from MS Access to MS SQL
The steps outlined here describe converting from Medmont Studio 4 MS Access to Medmont Studio 5 MS SQL. These steps can be easily adapted to suit other conversion types. Please note that they need to be run on the server PC in a Client/Server setup of Medmont Studio followed by the standard update process for clients.
  • Perform the backup of your current database as described above.
  • Start the installation process for Medmont Studio 5 from the CD or download installation files.
  • Complete the installation process as per normal until presented with the Medmont Studio Configuration Tool wizard page for converting a database. In this case we are converting a Medmont Studio 4 database so select the appropriate option and click Next.
  • We now need to specify the location of the existing Medmont Studio 4 database to convert. Click on the Legacy Data... button to browse to the data location and click Next when ready to proceed.
  • Select SQL Server and click Next.
  • Enter the server name and the database name to use in the SQL server. Click on Next once you have filled out these details.

  • The next wizard screen asks for the SQL authentication method. If you don't know what this is then contact your SQL administrator. Click on Next once you have filled out the appropriate details.
  • The next screen will ask you to specify a local path where exam images can be stored. These are not stored in the MS SQL database. Click on the Location button to change it and then on Next to continue.
  • If the database conversion requires a new copy of the data to be created you will be asked if you would like to perform that copy now. Depending on size this process can take a while. If you don't have time right now you can select No and then re-run the configuration tool at a later date to complete the copy operation.
Complete the rest of the configuration process as you would normally for your relevant instrumentation. Once complete your Medmont Studio installation will now be connected to the MS SQL server.

We have had several reports of customers getting the following error when they first attempt to connect their Medmont Studio clients to their server in the morning.

"Medmont Studio is unable to communicate with the Medmont Studio Server on computer '[server name]' through port 8085. Ensure that the server is properly installed and running, and that a firewall is not preventing communications."



As most users have discovered; a temporary fix is to simply restart the Medmont Studio server. This can be done by following these steps on the server machine:

  • Double Left click on the Medmont Server icon in the system tray to bring up the Medmont Studio Server Manager dialog.

  • Click on the red Stop button to stop the Medmont Studio server and wait for status to change to Stopped.

  • Click on the Start button to start the Medmont Studio server and wait for the status to change to Running.

You should now be able to connect to the server from your Medmont Studio clients.

We are currently working on a solution to this issue and will post all further updates here.

Thanks

For those of you wanting to fit scleral lenses using the methods outlined by Randy Kojima at his Australian and New Zealand presentations we have provided the following download:
 
Corneal Angle at 0 and 180 Degrees on 10mm Coord
 
Once this file has been imported into Medmont Studio you can display the following attributes for E300 exams:
  • Corneal Angle at 5mm 0o
  • Corneal Angle at 5mm 180o

These will provide you with the surface normal angle at 0 and 180 degrees and will aide in determining the depth of the anterior chamber and the required tangent angles of your scleral lenses.
 
These attributes can be added to your E300 exams by following these steps:
  • Download and extract the corneal angle at 0 and 180.mxf file from the zip file.
  • Open Medmont Studio.
  • Click on the Medmont Application button (the Medmont Logo) in the top left of the screen.
  • Click on the Import menu entry.
  • Browse to the location of the corneal angle at 0 and 180.mxf file you extracted in step 1.
  • Click on the Open button.
  • Open any E300 exam by selecting it in the Patient tree.
  • From the ribbon bar ensure that Display > Show/Hide > Attributes is checked.
  • At the bottom of the E300 exam switch to the list of attributes if it is not already displayed.
  • Click on the Arrange button.
  • From the list on the left select Corneal Angle at 5mm 0 and Corneal Angle at 5mm 180
  • Click on the single arrow pointing to the right.
  • Click on the OK button.
  • From the bottom of the attributes panel click on Edit...
  • From the drop down list select E300 Exam.
  • Click on the Evaluate All button.
  • Click on Yes to confirm you want to re-evaluate all of the attributes.
  • Wait for the process to finish.
  • Click on the Close button.

You will now see the following attributes displayed in the attributes panel:
  • Corneal Angle at 5mm 0o
  • Corneal Angle at 5mm 180o

These will only be evaluated if valid data has been captured at a 5mm radius at 0 and 180 degrees.

Quoted question from kenaxmith:

As a new member I respectfully request some guidance.

Can one equilibrate Esterman-like testing with Medmont vs that on a Humphrey?

Thank you all.

Issues/Problems / Point Grey DirectShow camera support on Windows 7
« on: May 10, 2012, 03:44:34 pm »
It has come to our attention that owners of devices containing video cameras manufactured by Point Grey are not working correctly under Windows 7 when used with the Direct Show video source in Medmont Studio. The issue on Windows 7 is that changes made to the camera's image settings (e.g. brightness, contrast etc) are not being remember once the camera is powered down or disconnected from the PC.

We have recently been supplied with 2 camera's from Point Grey for testing:
  • The Chameleon CMLN-13S2C
  • The Flea 3 FL3-U3-32S2C

After some research on the issue we found the following post on the Point Grey web site:
http://www.ptgrey.com/support/kb/index.asp?a=4&q=245

quote:
When a PGR camera is power cycled (power disengaged then re-engaged), the camera will revert to its default factory settings, or, if supported by the specific camera model, the last saved memory channel. Changes to camera settings, such as shutter, gain, frame rate, etc., will therefore be lost if the camera loses power (the camera LED will turn off when the camera is not powered).

After reading this we have also found that the standard direct show interface that Medmont Studio uses to communicate with the camera does NOT support saving to this settings memory location. Therefore all settings changes made in Medmont Studio will be lost once the camera loses power.

Point Grey has provided us with an SDK which will allow us to develop a specific Medmont Studio Video Source for the Point Grey cameras. This however will only be available in a future release. In the meantime there is a work around that you can use to modify the settings of your camera and save them. I must advise you that I have only been able to test this process on the 2 camera models specified above on a Windows 7 32Bit operating system. If anyone else is able to test a different model can they please post their results here.

Changing and Saving the Point Grey Camera Image Settings
NOTE: This assumes all drivers for the Point Grey camera are installed and working correctly.
  • Download the point grey graph file HERE.
  • Extract the Point Grey Camera.grf file from the zip file.
  • Copy the Point Grey Camera.grf file to C:\ProgramData\Medmont\Medmont Studio 5\Medmont.Studio.Console\. NOTE The ProgramData folder is hidden on Windows 7 so you may need to enable viewing of hidden system folders to see it. Otherwise you can type the path in directly to Window File Explorer.
  • Start Medmont Studio
  • In Medmont Studio go to Configure > DV2000 > Images Sources.

  • Click on the New button.

  • In the Type drop down list select Direct Show.



    A new dialog should now appear titled Direct Show Capture Source and you should see a live preview of the camera you are using. DO NOT CHANGE ANY SETTINGS HERE. Click on the OK button.
  • Give the new video source a name and click on the OK button to save the new video source.
  • Close down Medmont Studio.
  • Download the Point Grey FlyCap2 application from HERE.
  • Once you have extracted all the files run FlyCap2. You will be presented with the following dialog:



    your connected camera should appear in the list of available cameras. Click on the OK button to start a preview.
  • This will bring up a live preview of the camera. From the menu select Settings > Toggle Camera Control Dialog.

  • Use the sliders on this new dialog to adjust the image until it meets your requirements.
  • Once you have finished configuring the image quality click on the Advanced Camera Settings button on the left.

  • Under Memory Channels select 1 from the Channel drop down list.

  • Click on the Save button just below the memory channel you selected.


You have now saved your current settings to the camera. It should now remember these settings even after power has been disconnected.
