  • Causa
    Upon completion of a 6d workflow, the hexapod evo module may be in a tilted state, if it is moved to the position used for 3d (non-iguide) treatments. in a subsequent 3d workflow, a possible incorrect position of the patient, due to a tilt of the hexapod, may be difficult to detect without verification. this description is not relevant for an iguide workflow (6d). the problem occurs only when a user switches from a 6d to a 3d workflow without iguide.
  • Acción
    Elekta is advising customers the correct position will be reached when the command to move the HexaPOD to the predefined 3D position is repeated. Users must perform this additional step without a patient on the HexaPOD after each change from the 6D workflow to the 3D workflow. Please refer to the respective User Manual for details how to initiate the movement. The manufacturer is currently investigating solutions to rectify this issue. Once available, Elekta will contact users to coordinate the required actions.
