How to manage my investigations

An investigation is medical imaging such as CTs, MRIs, PET-CTs.

When you log in for the first time in Medicai, you will see the investigations page empty.

On the left menu, you will notice two pages: Investigations and Documents, all gathered under Archive.

The Archive represents the collection of both investigations and medical documents. The name itself shows that is a place where you can keep safe and for long-term all your medical files.

What can I do with the investigations?
