File Upload

Because ECG files, echo images and video loops are typically large files, they can be uploaded to our central uploading portal.

To start the upload

  • Simply drag and drop the files (or .zip folders) you would like to upload into the upload area indicated by the dotted frame. 

  • Alternatively, click on “Dateien auswählen oder Datei zum Hochladen hereinziehen» and then select the files (or .zip folders) in the pop-up window and confirm by pressing “Open”.

  • If necessary repeat the process until all files are listed

  • Wait until the upload procedure is completed.

  • The uploaded files will be listed together with the message “Hochgeladene Dateien”, indicating that upload process was successful.

Naming the files

To ensure proper file identification and case assignment, please ensure that the file names include a unique identifier (e.g. your case ID, owners’s name, horse’s name).

If files of different examinations / days are included, please make sure that we will be able to identify the files of the respective exam (e.g. include date in file name).

* Please note: You can also merge all relevant files into a ZIP-folder prior to uploading and simply name this folder accordingly.

Acceptable data formats

Short ECG recordings can be obtained using conventional paper-based ECG equipment, the AliveCor® device, or other digital ECG recording devices. Files of scanned paper-based ECGs or ECGs exported from digital devices can be uploaded in .jpg, .tiff or .pdf format.

ECGs for comprehensive analyses should preferably be recorded using the Televet® system. They can be uploaded as Televet® files (either .DAT or .ecg files) or as raw ECG files (ASCII .csv files). Files in .ecg format are preferred.

ECGs recorded with the Sentinel Lifecard CF device can also be analysed. Echo cine loops should be in DICOM, AVI or MP4 format, echo images can be in DICOM, JPEG or TIFF format.

Other file formats might be accepted and analysed. Please contact us before you send files in other formats.
