  • Causa
    Elekta have identified that it is possible to get a positional error with the precise treatment table. this can occur if the positional sensors are not correctly installed during corrective maintenance. the system has a software check for large positional errors which is intended to find faults, but it is possible to position the treatment table with errors greater than 5mm and no inhibits are displayed. it is possible to cause a clinical mistreatment if the patient is not in the correct position.
  • Acción
    Elekta recommends the customers to verify the accuracy of the treatment table position using the procedure as shown by the treatment room monitor (TRM) as part of the daily machine checks. Elekta will supply an improved method of check/test for service engineers to implement post maintenance on the potentiometers to ensure they have correctly installed the positional sensors.
