Define your cases

For those using display sets (beta) in their reader study, after you have uploaded the images for your reader study, you now need to arrange them into cases. You can do this by going to the cases menu item in the side bar and clicking View / Delete Cases:

Here, you get an overview of all the cases that are part of your reader study. By default, each image is added to its own case. You can view details for a case by clicking on it. Each case offers you the ability to change the values for each of the interfaces that have been added to your reader study. Images can be used in more than one case.

The order field is used to determine the order in which your cases are presented to your readers. This field is automatically populated, but can be changed.

After you have defined all your cases, you may be left with a number of 'ghost cases', as you may have combined images in a case, making some of the ones that were created on upload obsolete. You can delete any case you no longer have use for, as long as no answers for it have been created yet.

Define your layout

When your cases are set up, you can define the layout for your reader study. For an extensive description of the various layout options see this section.

You only need to define a layout if you have more than a single image per display set. If you only have a single image (optionally with an overlay), you can leave the view content and hanging protocol empty, and the viewer will use sensible defaults to show your image.

If you have several images, you will need to at least define the view content. This will ensure each image will be loaded in a separate view. You can leave the hanging protocol empty if you would like side views for 3D images, or a minimap overview for multi-resolution images. The viewer will then show all your images at the same size. If you want full control over how images are shown (for example one large view and three smaller views below the main view), you will need to define a hanging protocol. See existing protocols.
