How to Use and Configure FAST Adjust

How to Use and Configure FAST Adjust step by step

How to Use and Configure FAST Adjust Computed Tomography FAST Adjust allows for one-button optimization of scan time and mAs values – within pre- configured limits – to quickly resolve scan parameter conflicts. 1. When a scan conflict occurs, the CARE Profile curve will display partially or totally yellow. 10.08.25-11:35:39-DST-Specials ... H Hospital 10.08.25-11:35:39-DST-Specials ...

Under most circumstances, the FAST Adjust button will appear. Clicking the Adjust button will resolve the conflict Adjust Load Hold Recon Recon automatically. 3. When FAST Adjust is activated, the scanner will automatically adapt technical parameters to resolve the conflict:  First, the scan time will be increased/pitch will be decreased to allow for the necessary dose to be delivered  If the conflict cannot be resolved by increasing the scan time alone, only then will the maximum mAs for the scan be reduced.
