P Buttons / S Buttons/ Send Buttons / Acquire

After an exam, you can program a button on your ultrasound system to send the study to Tricefy.

This is not a requirement, especially if you prefer your ultrasound system to send every study automatically.

Instructions for programming buttons vary depending on your ultrasound system. Here are some guidelines for popular brands:
