Segmentation provides the tools for marking the regions of interest in medical images, saving them as RTSTRUCT, sharing them with other interested parties, or using artificial intelligence modules. The system also provides the user with the possibility to measure and copy to the clipboard the statistics of the segments.
To start working with segmentation tools, expand the Segmentation menu in the main menu group, and select the tool from the list:

NOTE! If you do not see the segmentation tool, please contact your system administrator. Any or all segmentation tools may be disabled in configuration, or by user rights.
NOTE! Segmentation may be done only on images of MR, CT, PET, NM, CR, MG, or DX modalities. In the studies, where volume can't be calculated (for example DX and MG modalities), is available for use only 2D tools.
CAUTION! Until not saved, the created, deleted, or edited segments are held in program temporary storage and will be lost, if closing the Viewer or closing the study, that has segmentations with unsaved changes.
The system opens the Segmentation window, and activates the tab of the selected segmentation tool:
