You can now display Metron images on your favorite Android tablet or cell phone. Combining the Metron export feature with either a Google or Dropbox cloud storage account.
You can even configure Metron to auto-export to your cloud storage account. Every time you take an X-Ray and accept the image, Metron will automatically send that image to the configured cloud storage account.
If you then have an Android device that is also configured to connect to the same cloud storage account, that Android device will have access to the same image within a couple of minutes. Just
click on the App Icon and start viewing.
Both Google and Dropbox rely on a "Sync" feature that in nearly real-time will replicate whatever is stored in the local Metron Export folder.
File and folder names - it is possible to create a complete client and patient folder structure for easy navigation. With this approach, you can have 1000 images visible from your Android and
just scroll to the client name of interest.
Because these images are JPEG files, they are generally 1/20 the size of the original image. If your Metron database uses 20gb of disk space, your Android option will use up only 1gb of cloud storage. Google offers 15gb free to any Gmail user.
