Trophy Bridge

In the Main Menu, click Setup, Program Links. Double-click Trophy.

After version 5.0, this is known as Kodak Dental Imaging (KDI). Also use this bridge for some Carestream products.

There are two different Trophy bridges available:

Note: To change patients, you must close Kodak, switch patients in Open Dental, then reopen the bridge.


To enable the bridge:

  1. Check the Enabled box.
  2. Verify the Path of file to open.
  3. Double click on a row inAdditional Properties to change settings.
    1. Storage Path: Where images are stored.
    2. Enter 1 to enable Numbered Mode
  4. Set up a clickable bridge button.
    1. Under Add a button to these toolbars, highlight where to display the button.
    2. Enter the Text on button.
    3. (Optional) Import an image to show on the button (22 x 22 pixels).
  5. Click OK.

Technical Details

Storage Path: The storage path might look similar to

\\SERVER\tw

or

F:\tw


The storage path must be set to exactly the same value as the database location within Trophy. To change the database location in Trophy, in the main menu click options or preferences and that will open a window with a series of tabs. Inside one of the tabs there will be a place to enter a location for the database. Trophy uses this database path when searching for patients.

Simple Bridge

If using the simple bridge, Open Dental always simply uses the Open Dental PatNum to name the Trophy folders. For example, for John Smith, PatNum=123, his images might be found in this folder:

\\SERVER\tw\123


Enhanced Bridge

If using Fona OrisWin imaging then the enhanced bridge is the correct bridge to use. If using the enhanced bridge, then each patient will have a Trophy Folder path entered in the Patient Edit window. The folder name for one patient might look similar to

G.rvg\G0000001

or

\\SERVER\tw\G.rvg\G0000001


The bridge makes the following assumptions:

Automation capabilities of the bridge:

Example text file:

Name of file: FILEDATA.txt. Contents:

[Patient file]

NUMERO=W0000022

NOM=WALIA

PRENOM=KUNAL

DATE=19820411

SECU=...-..-....

CODE=.....-....

TEL1= (...)...-....

TEL2= (...)...-....

PHOTO=

EXTNUM=W0000022

Enhanced Bridge, Numbered Mode

Some installations of Trophy do not use FILEDATA.txt files, and the folders are numbered according to patient ID. The patient folders are grouped into subfolders with similar numbers. If the user has had a conversion from SoftDent to Open Dental, and if the patient id numbers have been preserved, then many existing patients will already have patient image folders named by their patient numbers.

Automation sequence:

As an alternative to linking folders on the fly, we provide an image conversion service which links up the folders ahead of time.

Troubleshooting

If the bridge isn't working, you can troubleshoot it by creating a windows shortcut. On your desktop, in a blank area, right click, New, Shortcut. The location / target will be the Trophy program itself. For example, C:\Program Files\Trophy\TW.exe. After creating the shortcut, right click on it and select properties. Edit the target. Add a space after the original target and then -P, then no space, then the full path to a patient folder without any trailing \. Similar to this:

C:\Program Files\Trophy\TW.exe -PF:\tw\G.rvg\G0000001


Click OK to close the properties window. Then, click your shortcut to test. This simulates exactly what Open Dental is doing. If you can't get this to work, then Open Dental won't work either. If you can't get it to work, please contact support for troubleshooting.

But if it does work, you should be able to change the settings in Open Dental to match.
