  • Causa
    The 4ditc ad-hoc imaging ciao (complete irradiated area outline) calculation results in a ciao shape that differs from the ciao calculated in ariachart eclipse offline review and on-board imager. the 4ditc algorithm adds dose for the control point at the field edge which should not be added according to the system specifications. this error will be present in the 4ditc mlc display. the discrepancy is a display issue that is only seen when an ad-hoc image template has been added after the plan has been loaded on the 4ditc. if the 4ditc generated ciao image is projected on the patient using the light field the incorrect field edge will be displayed. if the field edge is used to set-up another abutting treatment field the area between the projected field edge and the abutting field edge would be mismatched and not treated.
