Creating a New Case Using a Shared Folder

This optional feature allows you to create a case in Study Share simply by creating a folder in a designated location and then copying case images to a folder. Check with your system administrator to determine whether or not this feature is installed on your system.

If the shared folder feature is available, you can ask your administrator for the location of a folder that you can use to create cases. The folder will have the same name as the login used for your Study Share account. For example, if your Study Share login is jdoe, your admin will give you a path like \\studyshare_import\jdoe which you will use to connect to your folder. Your administrator will also provide you with a login and password that you will be prompted for when you connect to your shared folder.

To create a case, follow these steps:

  1. Open Windows Explorer.
  2. In the Address field, enter the locator path you received from your administrator (e.g., \\studyshare_import\jdoe).
  3. When prompted, enter the user name and password you received from your administrator.
  4. You should now be connected to your shared folder. Suppose you now want to create a case called “Pneumonia” in Study Share. To create the case you should
    • Create a new folder named “Pneumonia.”
    • Copy into this folder any images you wanted added to the new case.
  5. Study Share will now create a case owned by you. All of the images you added to the case folder will be added to the new case in alphanumeric order based on the name of each image file. For example, you could control the order of images in your case by renaming them as “1.jpg,” “2.jpg,” “3.png,” “4.jpg,” etc. and then copying them to the case folder.
