# How to start for the beginners

Dear Experts,
I have successfully installed SCT on Ubuntu. I need the software for segmenting cross-sectional areas. Please simply tell me how to start working with the software. I mean that I really appreciate it if you give me a ““step by step”” procedure.

Thaaaaaank you so much.

thank you for posting! We are currently updating our documentation, here is the working version pointing to the step-by-step commands. If you scroll down, you will see the “t2” section, which starts with segmenting the cord, labeling and then computing CSA. Let us know if this helps,

Cheers,
Julien

one thing you can do, is copy/paste each line of the `batch_processing.sh`, so you can get familiar with the Terminal environment and what each line is doing.
