Dental Image Viewing Modes 
When you view dental radiographs, specialized dental viewing modes are available on the Image Viewer window. These
modes allow you to arrange images in a variety of dental layouts and to move back and forth among them. The layouts
facilitate:
• Viewing the whole series in a template layout (template mode)
• Viewing all the images from the template layout in a grid (review all images mode)
• Viewing selected images in isolation, at a larger size (review selected images mode)
About Template Mode
The Image Viewer initially displays dental radiographs in Template Mode. In template mode, the primary radiographs for
the series are displayed in the template pane, and arranged in a template layout so that you can view the radiographs
in relation to one another. The rest of the images in the series are displayed in the overfow pane at the bottom of the
screen.
