This means that the primary and backup hard drives are getting full with scan data. This can be remediated by archiving your scans from the primary and backup hard drives to either two external hard drives or to an NAS drive. Please consult your Optovue User’s Manual for more details or contact Optovue Technical Support for assistance.
The backup function does not remove the scans from the local and backup drives, so it does not free up space in those drives. The backup function is built in to the application to automatically create a backup copy of any scan taken. The backup scan is saved in the Backup Drive (D:/ drive for RTVue/XR and M:/ drive for iVue/iScan). A secondary backup drive can be installed and configured if needed in the Tools > User Preference settings. The secondary backup drive can be an external hard drive or a network drive. A drive letter is needed, so if a network drive is going to be used, it will need to be mapped to the computer.
Optovue has several networking solutions, such as NetVue Pro, NetVue Enterprise, and NetVue Web, that allow you to view the OCT results. NetVue Pro and NetVue Enterprise utilize the ReVue software to enable you to dynamically view scans on your computer. NetVue Web allows you to view static images via a web browser on any network connected device. Please refer to Optovue's networking brochure or contact the Optovue service desk for computer specifications and additional details.
Optovue has a DICOM module available for purchase that can be installed on the OCT computer or review stations. The module is compliant for C-store of secondary capture of OCT scans to a PACS server and modality worklist query. Please contact Optovue for pricing and additional details.
