2D Results


This tool is used to create an Excel file containing the different measurement results from different modules. You can select the measurement you want to appear in the excel file  and you can select the order of the cells.


When the file is first created, a 3 line header describing the cell's content will be created.  After that, if data is appended to the file, the header will only be repeated is the selected cell list has been modified.




If the "Anonymous" mode is activated, the saved values for "Patient Name" will be "anonymous", for "Patient ID" and "Study ID" it will be "xxxxxx".

All available values

You are presented with a list of all the available values that can be written to the Excel file.


Values saved


This is the list of the values that have been selected from the "All available values".  these will be written to the Excel file in the order they are presented in the list (the top most item will be the first cell of each line in the file.


For each selected slices in sliceOmatic, one line of data will be written to the Excel file using these values.


Cell Order

Float Fraction

You can specify whether you want the fractions in your floating point values to be delimited by a dot (".") (example:12.34) or a comma (",") (example: 12,34). By default it is the dot.


Cell Delimiter


You can specify the character you want to use to mark the end of a cell in your spreadsheet result files. By default it is the "tab" character.


Cell Filler

You can specify what should be placed in cells that have no values. For example, in a result file for multiple frames, if a TAG is not present in all the frames, then in some cells we will not have surfaces and volumes for it.


File path

The result file's path can be either a fixed string (defined in the next field), or the path extracted from the last file read in the program.


Default file path

If you use a fixed path, you can select it here.


File name

The file name of the result file can be either a fixed string, a fixed string with a counter append to it, or a file selected from a pop-up file selection menu.


Default file name

The string use for the file name.  In the pop-up option, this will be the starting file name.


Always append

If the result file already exist, you have a choice of having a pop-up menu asking for your decision (overwrite/append or cancel), or having the program always append at the end of the file.



if the cell configuration is different than it was the last time data has been written to the file, a new set of headers will be written to the file. Otherwise, the program will just add one line per selected slices.


Auto backup

If this flag is set to "on", the program will automatically create a backup file each time it overwrite or append to an existing result file.  The backup are create in the same directory as the original but with the string "(backup).xxx" append to the name, where xxx is a counter going from 001 to 999.
