Transcript to measurements and calculations with the Chison SonoTouch 30 ultrasound machine
Now, let’s take a look at the measurements. If I want to take a quick– let’s say I want to just take a quick measurement. I can hit Caliper. Down here it’s going to show the result. I hold here. Move my cursor to where I want it. And I have a blue one. I’m just going to click and drag. And I don’t know if you could see it very well, but there’s a blue line here. And it’s showing my distance here.
I’m clicking and dragging this Caliper around to get my measurement. Notice, I can click away from it. So I can see it better. If I hit switch, it will highlight the other yellow. And I could take that and swing it around. Again, I do not have to click on the yellow.
This allows me to click and drag it and see exactly where it’s going to be positioned. Click on the arrows under Caliper, I can also get an ellipse or a trace.
The trace, I can drag my finger all the way around. And when I let go, it’s going to draw a straight line. Down here, we’re given the circumference and area. If I want to get an ellipse, click and drag. And I have my blue markers and my yellow. Going to hit switch, and I can change this one here. Switch again and these become active. And I can change that.
When I’m done with that measurement, I click Done. And we’ll save it right there. Now, the same thing goes here if I want to delete that measurement, I have to be into the measurement screen and click on the Trashcan. Same thing applies as Annotations. If you click and hold it for a long time, it’ll delete all measurements.
Now, if I want to use the calculation package, I’m going to hit Meas. And this will ask me what I want to choose. I have the two arrows along which show that there are sub-menus beneath there, how I want to measure, various item. I would take this measurement, say I want a 2-axis volume, going to click here. Hit Switch. It works the very same way. Hit Switch again. And I can get my volume measurement there. And I click Done. And this will show normal 2-axis volume measurement which will show up on my report. I can click Back. That remains on the screen.
Press and hold Delete. And we’ll move that off the screen.
