Introducing The Horos User Guide

Posted by Les Trachtman, EE, JD, MBA on Jan 11, 2019 2:24:36 PM

We are excited to announce that our latest project - the Horos User Guide - is finally ready! This weekend, we will be publishing the long-awaited comprehensive manual for Horos.

With a growing community of Horos users, many of whom are not OsiriX refugees, we have received an increasing amount of requests for a reference like this.

When we set out to create Horos, we assumed most of our users would be migrating over from OsiriX. As such, we expected they had existing knowledge of the operation of OsiriX and therefore Horos would be a seamless transition. And, we were correct at the start. But since that time, Horos usage has grown enormously. We now have more than 180,000 users at all levels of expertise. With a growing demand for a user guide, we have complied.

Together with two experienced and active members of our community, Dr. Naomi Booth BSc BVSc MMedSci (Clin Ed) Dist FHEA MRCVS and Dr. James Ryan, Biology Department, Hobart and William Smith Colleges, Geneva, NY, we’ve compiled a complete guide to the Horos software. For those who may be unfamiliar with Horos, it is a free, open source, fully functional medical image viewer that is available for download on our website User Guide Preview Square

The guide, which includes almost 300 pages of instructions and screen diagrams, provides detailed instructions for each of the Horos commands, pull down menus and functions. Organized into logical sections for quick consult, the guide comes complete with a detailed index so you can easily look up any function.

The Horos User Guide is the perfect complement to Horos Academy. While the Guide is a great resource for quickly looking up specific items and in-depth instructions, the Academy is teaching straight from the Horos experts. This four-module video tutorial covers all of the key functions in Horos.

We are grateful to our community for their contributions and continued suggestions to help Horos improve and expand. We hope you will enjoy the Horos User Guide and that it will make your use of Horos even more productive!
