  • Causa
    Kv/ma lockin not functioning as specified: the lock-in function is a fluoroscopy only function. when this function is enabled, the current radiation parameters, (kv and ma values), are retained to keep a consistent image impression. this is relevant for examinations of anatomies such as knee or shoulder, where the amount of dose at the detector is strongly influenced by the amount of direct radiation. due to a software bug, the ma values are not locked, but increase when the operator restarts pulsed fluoroscopy several times after activation of the lock-in function. as a result, the patient received an increased radiation dose stitching with skyplate aborts after first image: if there is an improper synchronization between the skyplate detector and the system, the preview offset image will have artifacts. if this happens, the system software identifies the preview image buffer as not usable during the first part image acquisition of the stitching run and as a result will abort the run. the stitching run has to be repeated.
