Contact/ Tech Support
Joints A templating software designed by Medstrat that is web based but requires a core download to run on your computer Requires a user name and password that can be assigned by Tom Tjalsma or Bill Sherman This includes sales force, hospital, offices or physicians Can be added to a hospital, surgeons office or home for no cost or fee. All xrays in Joints can be imported directly into Zimmer SMS, printed or exported to a DICOM or JPEG file If you want a Joints account, please Bill Sherman with your: First and Last Name and your address
Why use Joints Only takes about 3 minutes of your time to template and import into SMS If you import into SMS, all of your team can see your sizes and templated xrays If “Relay” is set up it let’s you obtain xrays in a matter of minutes with little effort Gives you an accurate measurement of implants + or – 1 implant size 95% of the time (Odell Woods/ Daniel) Let’s you tailor your implant request If using DICOM you do not need magnification markers Surgeons can have templating software on their home, office or hospital computers for no cost or fee
Definitions/Modality PACS: Picture archiving and communications system DICOM: Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine CR: Computed Radiography; uses an xray plate that is reusable DR: Digital Radiography; uses a plate that is directly connected to a server (either wired or wireless) Most images are taken either CR/DR but they are all DICOM. All DICOM images can be printed to look like regular film xrays Some offices still use the old xray hard xrays
Software Download Go to Click on Downloads tab and log in with your user name and password
Software Download Username: first name initial then last example: Password: Zimmer1 (you can change it if you want to)

Upload an Image or Series Three ways 1. Push directly from PACS or imaging system (via Joints Relay): DICOM only 2. Drag and Drop (via Joints Relay): DICOM Only 3. Import to Joints: DICOM or JPEG If DICOM you do not need mag marker but you can if you want to If JPEG you will need a mag marker
“Push” Image upload How to: is specific to PACS software Must always have Joints Relay running when doing a “push” or “Drag and Drop” upload DICOM images load directly to specified user’s “To-Do” tab in Joints. Must set up Joints Relay at office or hospital Need administrative privileges to download and run software. May need to speak directly to imaging software help desk to learn how to add a “push” upload Need IP Address, AE Title, AE port When relay is configured it will display all three items above
Drag and Drop Upload When images are dragged and dropped into Relay Folder they will be added to your “To Do” tab in Joints Relay Folder will automatically appear on desktop once Joints Relay is opened and running DICOM images only Joints Relay must be up and running
Import an Image Click on Study, Import, then either DICOM or Plain Images (for JPEG Images), find Folder assigned to images (either a CD/DVD/USB or on the hard drive and click on Import.
Import an Image DICOM images will automatically import the patient information but JPEG image information will have to be manually inputted. DICOM images do not need a magnification marker But you can use one if you want to. For DICOM find folder and upload images. JPEG images need a magnification marker
Import a JPEG Image Click “Ok” when: Import to… Zimmer-Great Lakes window comes up Click on Manual Entry Add Patient Name and ID then click Accept Patient ID can be whatever you want but I always make it the name
Import a JPEG Image Type in Study Description and Body Part Examined then click accept. Image will begin to upload
Tabs Everything: Everything you have in your “personal” Joints server To Do: All images waiting to be templated Templated: All images templated but not “Planned” Planned: All images templated and linked to a case in SMS Training: All images added to your “personal” Joints server to practice with Zimmer -Great Lakes: All images you have in your “personal” Joints server
How to Template Click on “To Do” tab Double click on patient to be templated If you want to have the AP and Lateral in the same window click on box cut into 4 quadrants on top left of the Joints Viewer page And select 1x2.
Templating Click on the crossed wrench and screwdriver DICOM: you do not need to calibrate Make sure Magnification is 115% for knees and 120% for hips JPEG: Click calibrate and manipulate red calibration marker to appropriate magnification marker If you want a full circle make: Arc Length 180 deg Type diameter or length of marker in the Diameter box in mm Click submit
Templating Ensure correct planning items are checked Body Part, Zimmer, Plane, Side, Orientation Select Implants you wish to template
Templating From this point you can do multiple things. Click on file and one of the tasks below Save: Saves templated Films but they can still be adjusted (all templated xrays must be saved in order to print or send to SMS) Print: Allows you to print the xrays with templates on them Duplicate: Allows you to copy the image with the templates burned into them. This allows you to export images with templates on them. Export: Export allows you to export one image or the entire series in either a DICOM or JPEG format Manage: Allows you to send the templated images to SMS. Other administrative functions.
Sending Images to SMS You must first ensure you preferences are set. When you have the image opened: Click on Edit, preferences Case with patient info must be in SMS before sending images to SMS
Sending Images to SMS Add your SMS user name and password under the “CASE” tab.
Sending Images to SMS Before sending to SMS ensure you have saved your images. They do not need to be labeled anything specific. Click file, then save Select file, manage plan, type in surgeons name, click add

Setting up a Relay Download relay from Mestrat website just like you did with Joints
Setting up a Relay Open up Relay via the link created on your desktop Label the organization whatever you want Select Configure
Setting up a Relay Under physician; select add Add physicians information and click ok You can add as many surgeons as you like to send images from that relay
Setting up a Relay Under Joint Reps select “Username” and in “contains” type the username you want images sent to. Select “search” and it will ask for your Joints username and password, enter it and click ok Highlight the name and select add
Setting up a Relay Change AE name to Zimmer_Surgeon Click Accept You can add as many reps as you like You can close this screen
Setting up a Relay Notice each surgeon has there own AE Title and AE Port regardless of how many Reps. The IP Address, AE Title and AE Port are what is needed when setting up a “Push” from an office or hospital PACS. This is why it is important to change the AE title to the surgeon name
Drag and Drop Notice the folders that are created for each surgeon when they are added to Relay. This is where you drag and drop your DICOM images to be sent to Joints. The folders will go away when Relay is closed. All files that are dragged into these folders will disappear once they are sent to Joints.
Tips Preferences: Set knee magnification to 115% and hips to 120% Select “compressed” on Joints main screen. This lets the images download faster. If you are going to export a DICOM image, ensure you create a duplicate study so the images are burned on the xray
