FMF Software Queries

 
 
Please note: We are unable to provide personalised clinical comment or advice
 
We suggest the following approach is taken regarding any questions you have about the Astraia
FMF software:
 
  1. Refer to the Supporting Documentation you received when the Astraia software was sent to your centre, along with any updated documentation we have subsequently emailed to the centre.  This documentation includes:  
  • Program Manual Version 2017
  • Release Notes version 2.8.1
 
           These documents supply important information and answers to commonly asked questions. 
            It is essential that you consult this information.
 
  1. The FMF Software has information points.  Check to see if the information icon is next to the field you are querying, if not go to the Help pages within the software, or press F1.  Use the magnifying icon to enter the term (e.g. nasal bone) you need information about.     
 
  1. Take your question to the Centre Contact Person or to the person that signs out your reports, (usually the Radiologist or Obstetrician). 
 
  1. Consider referring your query locally to a specialist centre or Tertiary centre in your State who deal with a wide range of cases and the practical use of the FMF software.  They may be able to assist you.
 
We do appreciate it if you can follow all of the above points before contacting us.  We acknowledge that in some cases it’s necessary to contact us and if so we will do our best to help you resolve your query.
