  • Causa
    The xray volume imaging system (xvi) can incorrectly calculate the target position of the treatment table, because of an error due to a specific sequence of events that does not occur very frequently., if patient and treatment table movements are not monitored ,and the automatic setup buttons are kept pressed ,the treatment table continues to move. it only stops when a touchguard activates. therefore this error can cause a collision between the patient and an external beam limiting device. if this error occurs with an external beam limiting device attached to the digital accelerator, it may cause fatal injury to the patient.
