The MIND User Interface

The following are screen captures from the preliminary GUI of the MIND program. The purple text attempts to show what a certain option will accomplish. More involved explanations appear after the screen capture itself.

MINDUI

This is the first window you will see when starting your MIND session. You can see the various menus in the bar at the top of the window. The File menu allows various file manipulation within the MIND session. The edit menu allows the configuration of various options. These two menus are further explicated in the following two screen captures. The lists of lines you see filling up the screen are the MIND method for communicating with the database. By clicking on the button on top of one of the lists at the start of your MIND session this will allow you to have all the files in the database listed according to that variable. You may then select one particular instance of said variable and consequently the possibilities for the other two variables will appear in their respective windows. An example, a neurosurgeon knows that he needs the CT scan for a patient which was taken on the 27th of December. He can then click on the modality button and get the various types of scans. By selecting CT in the list that will appear the other two windows are then updated. He can then select the 27th of December of the date list and have all the patient's names which were taken on the 27th of December show up and then choose the patient he wants.

This is a very simple File menu. The first option allows the user to connect to the database and fill in the options for all three lists. This is handy if the user doesn't know exactly where he/she wants to begin their search. The second will open a particular file from the local or remote machine (given that the correct path is given) into the MIND viewer. The third will save an open file to the local machine. The last option will quit all MIND programs.
