Artis Basics - System Operation
This Training provides a general overview of the Artis family including system types, operation, standard features and options that are available on the systems. Preparation tool for onsite training and getting new employees up to speed. Usage as reference tool.
Artis Basics: System Operation By the end of this course you should be able to: Start up and shutdown the Artis system properly Distinguish between direct operation buttons and pre-selected function buttons Identify the System Control Modules including Table Control Module, Collimator Control Module and the Stand Control Module Explain the function of the multifunctional joystick, foot switches, and hand switch Define the purpose of the Data Display or DDIS Describe the steps for storing and moving to programmed and direct positions Interpret on screen cues to resolve a potential collision The Log Off button will stop and restart syngo and the application. Use this option if the mouse pointer stops reacting to movement. This does not reset the imaging system. The Shutdown process will take approximately 2-3 minutes. A normal shutdown process will begin after all the background jobs have finished. A forced shut down process will cancel the background jobs and shut the system off immediately. Never use the main Power Off switch to shut down the system. The Image System Reset keeps the system power on. Bypass Fluoro is still possible. Imaging is still possible during a Stand Reset. Fluoro and acquisition are still possible. Blue Buttons: Direct operation function executed by pressing button. Gray Buttons: Pre-selection or setting; requires additional function to achieve movement or placement. OPEN Table brake release Table height control Table tilt control Lateral tilt control Orientation button Isocenter button Transverse lock button Table rotate control TCM - M manual version TCM - J joystick version TCM - S servo version OPEN LOCKED OPEN OPEN LOCKED 1. Filter Joysticks - Pressing down on filter joysticks will clear all filters from the field of view. 2. Collimation Joystick - Pressing down on the collimation joystick will clear only the collimation. 3. Filter Selection - The Wedge/Finger filter button allows for the choice between wedge filters or finger filters. 4. Home Filters & Collimation - Clears all filters and collimation. 5. Zoom Stage Control - Allows for choice of zoom formats 6. Pane Selection - Switches functionality of all controls between A and B planes. 7. Collimator Rotation - Manual Image rotation; Used to rotate collimator to adjust image on screen. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Direct Positions I, II, & III: Direct Positions are a quick way to recall a previously stored position. Note: By pressing the Direct I and Direct II Positions simultaneously, all collision protection devices are ignored. This will allow the system to be freed from a collision. C-arm Control Joystick To get C-arm movement, first press down on the top of the joystick, and then deflect the joystick in the direction that you want the C-arm to move. Programmed Positions Up to 50 programmed positions can be recalled using this button. To Recall a Programmed Position: Press the Programmed Position button. Select the programmed position. Use the Dead Man Switch until the position is reached. The next programmed position is highlighted automatically. Orientation Button: Pressing this button for 2 seconds will cause the LED light to move to a different side of the patient graphic. The LED light for the orientation of the controls should be on the side of the patient graphic where the controls are currently. For example, if the controls are mounted on the foot end of the table, the LED should be lit at the foot end of the patient graphic. This is important because it changes the direction of the C-arm and table joystick or servo movements. System Positions: There are different system positions available depending on the type of system and the options that are purchased. To Recall a System Position: Press the System Position button. Select the system position. Use the Dead Man Switch until the position is reached. Zero Stop: Pressing the Zero-Stop button allows the C-arm to stop whenever 0 is reached. To move past 0 the joystick must be released and re-engaged. If the button is not active, the C-arm will not stop, it will move past 0. On Artis MP, this would also stop the table at all 0 positions, including angulation, transverse and longitudinal movements. The system can store the following options: C-arm position Image receptor position Zoom format Filter placement Collimation Table height (optional, can be configured to be stored in service mode. On MP, exact table position is stored.) C-arm Control Joystick Programmed Positions System Postions Store Orientation button Zero stop Direct Positions I, II, III C-arm Control Joystick Programmed Positions System Positions Store C-arm Control Joystick Programmed Positions System Positions Orientation button Zero stop Direct Positions I, II, III Orientation button Zero stop Direct Positions I, II, III Acquisition This pedal is always used for acquisitions. Options: This pedal may be configured for room lights, table brake, or other options depending on the system. Fluoro This pedal is always used for Fluoro. Proximity Switch An additional proximity swtich is built into the pedal for Artis MP. This will prevent the pedal from getting crushed under the system while it is moving. Foot Switches The foot pedal is designed to make it easy to step from Fluoro to acquisition. The functions of some of the pedals can be configured in the service mode. Also, depending on system type and room construction, even light switches can be configured into the pedal. Fluoro of the B-plane For single plane systems this pedal may be configured for room lights, table brake, or other otpions depending on the system. On bi-plane systems this pedal is for Fluoro of the B-plane Proximity switch Fluoro of the B-plane Fluoro Acquisition Options Proximity switch Hand Switch: Hand switches are a standard feature fo the angio systems. Multi-Function Button: This button can control the Variable Frame Rate, manual PERIVISION, and manual DYNAVISION depending on the system and the mode of operation. C-arm angulation RAO/LAO Angle of stand swivel Vertical axis Source to image distance Table cradle direction and degree Angle of table swivel vertical access Transverse table position Table tilt direction and degree Longitudinal table position Isocenter - tabletop distance C-arm angulation Cranial/Caudal Zoom format To reposition the C-arm, press the system position button on the Stand Control Module. Select the desired position by deflecting the joystick and pressing one or both of the function buttons. The C-arm can be driven to the desired position by Deflecting the joystick to the 12:00 position until the end position is reached. The Data Display screen may look different depending on your system. You have now completed the course Introduction to Artis Basics: System Operations. You should now be able to: Start up and shutdown the Artis system properly Distinguish between direct operation buttons and pre-selected function buttons Identify the System Control Modules including Table Control Module, Collimator Control Module and the Stand Control Module Explain the function of the multifunctional joystick, foot switches, and hand switch Define the purpose of the Data Display or DDIS Describe the steps for storing and moving to programmed and direct positions Interpret on screen cues to resolve a potential collision Central Power On button for the entire Artis system Boot up time is approximately 4-5 minutes. NOTE: Workplaces such as Sensis or syngo Workplace must be turned on separately. Power On LED TCM - Table Control Module CCM - Collimator Control Module SCM - Stand Control Module TCC - Touchscreen Control Console Monitors (LCD) Keyboard Mouse On box for remote control of the imaging system The imaging system is comprised of the computer with electronics for image acquisition and image processing, input devices, CD/DVD drives, and displays. Multifunctional Joystick Learn more about Multifunctional Joystick. Dean Man's Grip The dead man's grip must be depressed in order to get C-arm movement. Function buttons Used to select a programmed or system position. When making a selection, either one or both of the buttons can be pressed. SID Raises and lowers the image receptors. Adjusting this will not help you. Adjusting this will help you.
