Splitting contrast series for MPR

Maybe I am not fully familiar, but can RadiAnt handle properly joint contrast series, where arterial phase ir followed by portovenal? If now I do MPR, it will do it based on arterial phase - would there be possible to implement a choice on which "part of DICOM files" to base the reconstruction?
The hard "manual" way is to split DICOMs in different folders, but stil, when both parts are added to RadiAnt viewer, they are joint.
Any insights? Maybe I am missing something?

Hi Jonas,

The splitting feature will make it to the next beta version. Stay tuned :-)

As promised, a new beta version that makes splitting series possible: http://www.radiantviewer.com/startdownload.php?f=beta

Thank you for the option to split series. It's going to be very helpful.
When I try to do the split it always splits the first series (for example, without contrast). How can I choose what series I want to split, or is there an option to split every series and see them in different windows?
Thanks again for a great job!

Pablo, thanks. The "Split series" functionality detects all volumes within the active panel and opens these volumes in additional panels. You just have to select a series that you want to split in the thumbnail list and the click "Split series".

When I try the split series option it opens only the first series of images in another window. I can't seem to find the way to split every series. For example, if I split a dynamic MRI I always get the non-contrast series in another window and that's it.

Pablo, could you send us your email using this form? http://www.radiantviewer.com/contact.php
We will try to resolve the issue with your series.

Thanks for your great work. With CT on first looks it really works as expected - I will give it a better testing throughout coming days :)
Thanks once again
Best regards,

P.S. It would also be nice to have a possibility to remove series from the left pane. I usually add multiple series, but sometimes I wan to remove some, which I don't longer need - that should be quite easy to implement and would be quite useful.
Thanks :)

Pablo, your issue should be resolved in our latest beta version.
Please check this new release if it works for you well:
We also changed a little how the splitting function works, the source panel with multiple series is closed, so you only have panels with images resulting from the splitting.

Now it works perfectly! Thanks again for a great work!

Great, thanks!
One more idea/addition in the same direction: it would be nice if the series is not splitted and you are somewhere in the second series of those combined, it would be great, if once you do MPR, it would do from the second piece and not the the first piece of combined series.
Real-life example: if I am on a venous portal phase, after MPR it would be great, that you would stay on possibly splitted series with only venous portal phase and not arterial, which is first.

Jonas, this is a good idea indeed. Will add this to the to-do list. Thanks.
