    Failure to conduct important safety checks when using the brainlab radiotherapy treatment planning software in combination with brainlab conical collimators could result in unintended radiation outside the conical shaped field, which may lead to serious injury of the patient.
  • Acción
    BrainLAB AG issued an "Urgent Field Safety Notice" letter dated August 12, 2009 informing all customers of the BrainLab radiotherapy planning software using conical collimators of the important safety checks to avoid the failure to apply and verify an adequate jaw-shaped field size and field position at the LINAC for the used conical collimator(s) or the failure to mount and verify the correct, intended conical collimator. Consignees were instructed on proper steps to take to avoid further issues. For further questions, contact BrainLAB AG by phone at 1-800-597-5911. *** On February 1, 2010, BrainLab sent supplemental letters to 50 of the accounts who received the August 12, 2009 letter and have Novalis Dose Delivery Systems (excluding all Novalis Tx systems). The accounts were informed that in addition to the safety checks listed in the August letter, BrainLab will be installing a mandatory software modification on their systems that limits the field size to a maximum of 4x4 cm2 when the conical collimators are inserted. The accounts would be contacted by a service representative within the next six weeks to schedule the update. Any questions were directed to BrainLab at 1-800-597-5911. ***
