The server software only needs to be installed if the server machine is new or if a full reinstallation of the server is in progress.
CDR Dicom 5.14 has the same features as CDR 5.11, the main difference between the two is that CDR 5.14 is now Windows 10 compatible.

Two New Image Enhancement Features have been added to CDR 5.14 – Enhancement Mode and Fixed Enhancement
One of the advantages of dynamic image enhancement is the ability to adjust the amount of sharpness in an image after it is acquired. This feature, which is always available to Schick 33 customers, has been updated to offer an additional selection.
Right-click on the Image | Enhancement | select Mode A or Mode B:
- Fixed enhancement is a new option under the Image tab on the X-ray Acquisition Control Properties Screen.
- When you do select this option you will no longer have use the Sharpen Slider, Diagnostic Tasks, and Enhancement Modes after the image is acquired into the software.
- All of the enhancements are applied before you see the image and then can no longer be changed after the image appears in the software.
- This feature is only applied to Schick 33 Images.
Apply Fixed Enhancement:
- Click System.
- Click Xray Settings.
- Click on the Image tab.
- Check Mark Apply Fixed Enhancement.
- Select the Task you would like to use.
- Select the Sharpen % you would like to be applied to the image.
- Select the Mixed Mode option to apply to the image.
Click Apply and OK.
NOTE: When the Fixed Enhancement is applied, the slider for the sharpness will be shown at the percentage set in this menu.
