  • Causa
    The following issues have been identified which may result in additional patient scanning & therefore additional radiation doses. there have been no reports of injuries as a result of these issues;- scan length changes with a change in the field of view (fov);- the doseright algorithm calculates a water equivalent diameter that is larger than measured on a cylindrical phantom when an 80 kvp or 120 kvp surview is used. this will result in a mas value for the scan that is higher than suggested when using a 100 kvp or 140 kvp surview. (note: the reported mas and ctdi values are correct for all scans & surviews);- wrong scan time estimation due to incorrect intergration time causes the surview scan near 184mm &135mm may result in unexpected scan start positions; &- there may be a discrepancy between the calculated reconstruction length & the actual scan length which may result in the inability to reconstruct the raw data. offline reconstruction of the raw data is also not possible.
