The Clinical Drawer function allows you to use an anatomy image from our library to draw and annotate on. You also have the option to upload an image yourself to modify for the patient file. This tutorial will go through the various functions of the Clinical Drawer, and how to manage the drawings.
Within the patient record, click on the Clinical tab.
Click on Clinical Drawings
You will be taken to the Clinical Drawings screen for that patient's clinical record.
Checking the box next to a drawing will reveal a list of options. There is also the Filter and Search functions on the right as shown.
To Search for a Clinical Drawing, click the Search box and type in a Keyword.
Press Enter, and the system will display a list of the closest matches in the Comments field.
To Create a New Clinical Drawing, click New Clinical Drawing to open the clinical drawer.
You will be brought to the Clinical Drawer window.
There are three categories of images in the Clinical Drawer.

You have a variety of tools to modify your drawing. In this case, we will draw a red circle on the toe.
If you need to clear any modifications, click on Clear Artboard. Note that this will clear ALL modifications made.
Click Comments and type in any relevant clinical notes or comments.
You will also note the two tick-boxes underneath the drawing: checking the Add to Today's Notes tick-box will append the drawing in your current consultation. Furthermore, click the Confidential tick-box will make the drawing confidential (i.e. only you can see it).
