Using Protocol Files

The configuration of PXMOD can be saved in protocol files (with suffix .defpmod). By loading a protocol file the processing configuration can exactly be restored at any later time. This may help when the need arises to retrospectively check the exact processing details of a result data set, or it may serve as a template for similar analyses with other data sets. Therefore it is recommended to not only save the parametric maps, but also a protocol file when a processing session has been successfully completed. Note that only the configuration of the current workspace is saved in a protocol file.

There are two ways of saving and restoring the PXMOD configuration:

1.Model and data only: menu Pixelwise/Save Model Settings or picture_7308 from the status line saves the current model configuration including the data definitions. Menu Pixelwise/Load Model Settings or picture_7307 are used for restoring.

2.Model, data and PXMOD configurations: With menu Pixelwise/Settings/Save and menu Pixelwise/Settings/Retrieve the configurations of the PXMOD tool are considered in addition to the model configuration and the data.

Note: When closing PXMOD, the current configuration is written to the initial settings file of the PMOD user. Upon restarting PXMOD, this configuration is restored so that the user can continue with his most recent environment.
