I'm not familiar with the GE Definium 8000 but there are some options within Impax...
(i) If you're using a detailed BodyPart mapping you can create a 'Hanging Protocol' for the appropriate bodypart ('Knee'). Protocol entries would look something like this: 1. %Lt%AP% 2. %Lt&Lat% 3. %Rt%AP% 4. %Rt%Lat%
(ii) By far the easiest option is to give the users the "re-arrange images" or "re-arrange series" tool (depending upon whether they combine series for that modality or not). They can then manually move the images themselves.
(iii) You can even use a Keyboard shortcut to kickstart a hanging protocol or change the screen format for easy re-arrange.
There are lots of variables to take into account and setting vary from site to site so it's difficult to suggest anything further over a message thread without being sat at a workstation. In my opinion that's the great thing about Impax - It's so configurable.

The problem arises because the same study contains CR images each in a separate series PLUS DR images ALL in the same series. To enable a hanging protocol in Impax we need separate series or images NOT a mixture of both.
