Frequently Asked Questions
How many patient results can be saved on a computer?
Storing approximately 100 test results is equal to approximately 1 megabyte. This means that 100,000 test results can be saved on 1 gigabyte.
What are the minimum requirements to run the Waggoner CCVT on my computer
Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 or above operating system. 1 gigahertz of processing speed 512 MB of RAM 4.5 GB of disk space
How do I download and install the Waggoner CCVT on my Windows computer/tablet/laptop?
1.) Select on "Download Trial" in the upper-right hand corner of this page and complete the form and select submit. If that doesn't work, go to the following URL: www.WaggonerDiagnostics.com/pages/download-trial. The download should begin automatically. If it does not, please email us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (949) 396-1694 ext. 2.
2.) Double click on the file with the name Waggoner_CCVT_Setup_V.#.##.exe. The # symbols will be numbers signifying the version of the software you have just downloaded. Where the file can be located will depend on the browser you used to download the Waggoner CCVT. Often times it can be found in a downloads folder that most all download have been added too.
3.) This is where Windows Installation Setup will begin. Please follow the instructions that Windows provides to install the Waggoner CCVT.
4.) After the installation is complete, you will have a popup allow you to run the application immediately. Also, there will be a Waggoner CCVT icon placed onto your desktop. We recommend opening up the Waggoner CCVT and completing the registration and licensing process at this time.
5.) To begin, you will need register the application. This is a Class I medical device that is both listed with the FDA and CE Marked. This requires us to know who is using the application for our audits.
6.) The Waggoner CCVT will walk you through the rest of the setup process. If you are simply trying the 30-day trial, choose that option on the licensing screen. If you have a license, which was either provided to you via email or a distributor, please enter the license key. Although we do have the option to activate the Waggoner CCVT offline, we highly recommend connecting to the internet for this to make it as simple as possible.
Do I need to calibrate my monitor?
In a clinical study performed by two academic institutions, they said that the Waggoner CCVT on a calibrated monitor had slightly better agreement with the anomaloscope compared to the Waggoner CCVT that was uncalibrated. In another study conducted by the Naval Aerospace Medical Institute, the uncalibrated Surface Pro 3 Tablet and calibrated PC had similar high sensitivity and specificity (98%-100%) for detecting red/green CVD as compared to Nagel Anomaloscope. The U.S. Air Force said that calibration is not as critical due to the technology we employ when making our test plates. All in all, the sensitivity and specificity on an uncalibrated monitor are better than traditional books under a 6500k light.
There are several monitors and tablets that have a perfect rendition of the color spectrum right out of the box and these include Surface Tablets, Samsung Galaxies, and iPads.
If I want to calibrate my monitor, what are the ideal settings?
D6500, gamma 2.2 would be a nice target to shoot for with the calibration. (sRGB would no longer apply for a calibrated screen. It just ends up a calibrated Windows color profile). The calibration should target a 100 cd\m2 brightness, which can be obtained by adjusting the brightness to approximately 50%. You may or may not have to toggle around with the brightness a bit. Make sure to ensure night mode is off, and no change in brightness is on when in battery mode, per the Windows power setting.
