The software has simple interface and does not demand the user to have deep knowledge of computers. It is enough to master the major techniques of work with Windows applications. The main (star) window looks like this:To the left (Fig. 1) there is the list of patients and controls for this list. Pressing the corresponding buttons you can add new entries to the card file, correct previous information, delete error entries and information, which is of no interest. The entries are automatically arranged in the alphabetical order. The additional search function allows quick search of the patient’s name in the card file (Fig. 3).
The middle part of the window (Fig. 1) Contains the list of examinations of the patient. The unit memory fixes not only the date of examination but also the conclusion pattern, data obtained during the examination and US-images. The controls under the list allow:
* to open the before saved examination report in order to view, correct or print it.
* to delete the examination report of no value.
* to add the next entry about an examination.
The appearance and the content of the text report (Fig. 4) depends essentially on the kind of examination, individual settings made by the doctor and some other parameters. It can look approximately like this:
