The exam page is the main portion of the app that affects much of the other content of the app so we have decided to dedicate an entire page to explain this portion of the app. In order to access individual exams please refer to the main instruction page. Once you have entered the exam page you are presented with the informational portion of the app.
There are several factors that can be customized in this part of the app to include location, technique, and a customizable note section. The first option you come to from the top of the screen is the location selection.

To customize this section select the button on the screen that is labeled default location. At this point you will be presented with the option to edit the current list. You can add and delete location names at this point and save them. Once you have completed editing your list select "Done" at the top right hand corner. Your entered list will remain in the order that you entered them. You are now ready to edit individual techniques for any exam at for and X-ray unit that you come in contact with. From this same page you are able to select the location you want to use at the time of use. Simply select the location title and you will find 3 options. "Use selected location" will allow you to use the select location for a single time use. "Set as default for exam" allows the user to select this locations techniques to be displayed upon entering the particular exam page every time you enter the exam.
