Stacks are a set of sequential images that can be scrolled.
Sequential images from cross-sectional modalities (e.g. CT/MRI) or time resolved modalities (e.g. DSA) and should be presented as a scrollable stack, rather than as multiple single images.
Stacks should ideally contain less than 70 images per stack.
There are two ways of uploading stacks: automates and manual
To upload cases from DICOM / PACS as stacks to Radiopaedia, please use one of our uploaders. This is by far the easiest way of creating awesome cases.
To manually upload a stack all you need to do is zip (see below) sequentially numbered images and upload the zip file in exactly the same way you would upload a single image.
(instead of the individual images).
- Mac OSX: highlight images, right click and select 'compress'
- Win: highlight images, right click and 'send to archive'
Take care to make sure the images are sequentially numbered, preferably with leading zeros (although this is not mandatory) as follows:
It is worth keeping in mind that the first image within a stack is used as the thumbnail image by default and that often this will not be a good representation of the pathology. After saving the case, it is often helpful to select a specific different key image.
Please set plane / projection and a sequence / contrast phase as needed.
Although at present each stack can have it's own specific description, this features is going to be depreciated in the near future, so please avoid relying on this.
