Retinal Diagram Options

The Diagram Options menu provides additional options regarding the retinal diagram appearance. Items described as projections are actually on the external sclera 1 mm from the retinal surface that is being mapped.

  • Plaque - projects the plaque perimeter onto the diagram.
  • Plaque Name - displays the associated plaque name in the pane. You can drag the name or position and rotate it from the Diagram Parameters sheet..
  • Plaque Centerline - plots the nominal plaque bisecting centerline between the eyelets on the diagram.
  • Seeds - plots seed placeholders.
  • Seed Strength - overlays seed strength on seeds.
  • Slot Index - overlays slot index number seeds.
  • Tumor - draws the tumor base on the diagram.
  • Tint Tumor - shades the tumor interior with a brown tint.
  • Tint Margin - shades the tumor base-margin with a green tint when the mouse cursor is in margin-editing mode.
  • Tumor Margin - draws the tumor margin on the diagram.
  • Pseudo Color Margin - margin surrounding tumor base to apply pseudo coloring.
  • Label Tumor - labels the tumor.
  • Tumor Dimensions - draws tumor dimension arrows.
  • Apex Marker - enables the tumor apex marker. The apex marker receives a purple tint when the mouse cursor is in apex-dragging mode.
  • COMS Chords - draws the chords required for COMS reports.
  • Diagram - enables the retinal diagram.
  • Tint Iris - tints the iris region.
  • Tint Ciliary - tints the ciliary region.
  • Optic Nerve - projects the optic nerve sheath surrounding the optic disc to approximate the closest proximity possible for plaque notches.
  • Fovea Circle - outlines the fovea region when the macula outline is disabled.
  • Meridian Plane - draws meridian plane marker.
  • Coronal Plane - draws coronal plane marker.
  • Muscles - projects muscle insertions to the sclera onto the diagram.
  • Muscle Names - draws muscle names.
  • Landmarks - draws any digitized landmarks.
  • POI - draws points of interest.
  • Labels - labels diagram elements.
  • Grid - draws an additional ruled grid.
  • Matrix - shows the dose matix grid.
  • Diagram Parameters... - opens the diagram parameters sheet in which the plaque name location, optic disc radius and spokes of the diagram, and diagram pole type can be modified.

The diagram parameters sheet can be accessed from the Diagram Parameters... menu item or by double-clicking the plaque name label if ithe label is visible in the graphics content region of the window. Note: double-clicking in the white space surrounding the diagram also opens the Diagram Parameters... sheet.
