  • Causa
    Verifications performed identified that the dose value in "film mode" was incorrect and it was requested to stop using film mode. as a result of the incorrect dose patients may receive too much dose during image acquisition. however the overdose caused by filming is within the accepted range of deviation for dose planning and no consequences are expected unless there is a very large number of images taken.
