Subject Tab


The Subject tab shows information about the subject collected from the DICOM header. The Subject tab is found within the Session Detail, which can be navigated by selecting a Session from the Sessions list.

The Subject tab also includes custom meta-data entered manually. This information may include the subject's code (shown in the header), and the subject's name, sex, and age.

Subject Types:There are now different "Subject Types" (Human/Animal/Phantom)


Choosing the different types will display different results.  Human - will have the First name, Last name, Sex, Cohort, Race and Ethnicity.  Animal - Sex, Cohort, Species & Strain. Phantom - doesn't give any options.
