Burn i-CAT Vision, PDFs, DICOM, etc. on ONE CD - (part 1)

At the recent user meeting there was some discussion about having to burn 2 CDs; one with i-CAT Vision and one with DICOM data, Xoran data, plans, PDFs, 3DVR models, etc. After looking into this a little, I've discovered that it's pretty simple to put everything on one CD, assuming you don't exceed the limit of the disk.

When you create a CD through i-CAT Vision, it includes the converted data for your patient as well as 3 additional files. These files are:


Copy these files from a CD and place them in a folder called Autorun (or whatever you want to call it) on your desktop. When you burn your data CD (not the iCAT Vision CD), include the patient data folder that was created by iCAT Transfer (on my computer that folder is in C:\iCATVision\iCATVisionroot\) PLUS the 3 files from the Autorun folder.

When you put this CD in your drive, it will automatically run iCATVision, but it will also have all the other data on it which can be found by exploring the disk.

I titled this "part 1" because I have an additional way to do this where the disk lets you choose whether you want to run iCAT Vision, view the PDFs, or run the 3DVR models. I don't want to get into that unless this post generates some interest.

I forgot to add that if you don't want iCAT Vision to run automatically when the disk is inserted, but you want it available on the CD, just leave out the "Autorun.inf" & "Runthis.exe" files. Make sure you include the patient's iCAT Vision converted data folder so that when the doc clicks on iCATVision.exe it will load the data from the patient on the CD.
