  • Causa
    Raysearch became aware of the problem as it was discovered in cooperation with a customer experimenting with the dose calculation on a phantom. the correction concerns two issues found with the dose calculation when using a region of interest (roi) of type fixation or support with material override within the patient outline (external roi) in raystation 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 4.7, 5.0 and 4.3 (inversearc 1.0).
  • Acción

ACTIONS TO BE TAKEN BY THE USER Do not use ROIs of type Fixation or Support within the patient outline. Always use other ROI types for material override within the External ROI.
