Tradestation Scan - Unusual Option Activity

Can anyone assist in pointing me in the right direction for creating a scan criteria in tradestation for finding options with "unusual" activity. Like large block trades or higher than normal trading activity. I am currently using "Opt Volume > Open Interest" which does a decent job of finding some new large openings but I think its very limited as obviously there are going to be some larger and/or more actively traded equities with options where there can be unusual activity and the volume would not exceed the open interest.
