The toolbar buttons near the top of the window select the dose matrix set, cursor function, and window layout.
Enabling the automatic (live) Rx updating control in the toolbar (or holding down the option key while dragging the Rx point) will automatically rescale isodose lines and seed strengths in order to maintain the current Rx conditions while the Rx point (or a Rx POI) marker is dragged on the plane. The dose histogram is also automatically updated. The current 2D plane must intersect the Rx point (or POI) in order for the point markers to be visible. If the current Rx mode is a plaque or tumor axis distance, the dragged Rx point will be constrained to the appropriate axis during the drag and might disappear from the window because it no longer intersects the current plane. For all other Rx modes, the Rx will be automatically changed to absolute coordinates
mode at the beginning of the drag.
Displays only the currently active dosimetry set. To facilitate rapid dosimetric comparison of prospective plaque designs, Plaque Simulator supports 4 plaques and 4 dosimetry sets per patient. By default, each dosimetry set is associated with a corresponding plaque. Set 1 is associated with plaque 1, set 2 with plaque 2, and so on. Only one plaque (and its dosimetry set) at a time are normally considered to be "active". Changing either the active plaque or the active dosimetry set autmatically changes both the plaque and its associated dosimetry set. (This behavior can be disabled in case you wish to apply all four sets to the same plaque).
Displays side-by-side meridian and coronal dosimetry for the active dosimetry set.
Displays stacked meridian and coronal dosimetry for the active dosimetry set.
