  • Causa
    Siemens has identified an issue whereby in the application “dsa roadmap” the artis system's intended behaviour is to reject the stored vesselmap from previously acquired dsa if the patient table was moved during the roadmap workflow. in rare cases the system does not reject the dsa vesselmap and uses it for the further roadmap workflow steps. depending on the amount of table movement which was applied during the roadmap workflow, the dsa vesselmap may be overlaid as vessel tree at a position which does not fulfil siemens' requirements for accuracy.If the displacement of the vessel tree is large, it may be recognised by the user. however, if the displacement is either slight or at an unfavourable plane, the user may rely on incorrect visualisation of the catheter relative to the vesselmap.
