End session 17 Day Two Day Two: Performing Patient Exams Notes Objectives After this session, you will be able to: 1. Correctly select and manipulate organ programs 2. Perform patient exams 18 Troubleshooting System Movements and Functions Notes It is possible to disable system movements and functions by using the Disable function . Some points to remember are: • When not activated, the icon will have a blue diagonal line through it All system movements . should be possible . • When active, the icon will be backlit and have a reddish diagonal line through it All buttons on . the tube, wall bucky, and table are disabled and no system movement is possible . Top Alignment Top Alignment is designed to allow for the re-centering of the X-ray beam when you collimate top to bottom An example would be a smaller adult . or a child chest X-ray. When you collimate top to bottom, the X-ray beam automatically centers higher to place the center of the beam in the center of the thorax, not over the abdomen The more closely you . collimate top to bottom, the higher the beam center becomes. When this icon is active, it will be backlit. There are some conditions that must be met for Top Alignment to be active These are: . • The wall bucky is tilted to 0º (there is no tilt) • You must be on detent to the wall bucky and to the correct SID • The X-ray tube is angled at 90º (horizontal) • The image receptor size is 14x17" 14x17 portrait – OK - 14x17 landscape – receptor must be inserted - at the top of the bucky tray 14x17 landscape – if receptor is inserted in - the center of the bucky tray, Top Alignment is not possible • All other image receptor sizes – 10x12, 11x14, etc. can only be center aligned Top Alignment is . not possible . • If the Top Alignment icon appears grayed-out, then some of the conditions have not been fulfilled . 19 Troubleshooting SID Tracking Notes SID Tracking, or Source to Image Distance Tracking, allows the user to change the height of the bucky tray and have the tube follow to maintain the SID. This can be done at PH DO the table or wall bucky. When SID Tracking is active, the icon will be backlit. There are some conditions that must be met for SID Tracking to function: Wall Bucky • The wall bucky is tiltable and is tilted to 90º (horizontal) • X-ray tube must be detented in X and Y planes above tilted wall bucky • X-ray tube angulation must be 0º, ± 3º • SID must be greater than 33" • A cassette must be inserted into the wall bucky tray Table Bucky • The X-ray tube is in detent to the table bucky grid • X-ray tube angulation is 0º, ± 3º • SID must be greater than 33” • A cassette must be inserted into the wall table bucky tray If these conditions cannot be or have not been fulfilled when the SID Tracking button is pressed, then the icon will appear dark pink. This indicates that SID Tracking is lost. The function is active, but not all of the requirements for tracking have been met. Here are some things to look for when SID Tracking is lost: 1. If at the wall bucky, make sure the bucky is horizontal and not tilted 2. Make sure the X-ray tube is not angled more than 3º 3. If at the table bucky, make sure the table height is not too high or low, meaning the tube cannot maintain an SID greater than 33" When it comes to Top Alignment and SID Tracking, the optimal workflow is to fulfill all of the requirements for that function first, then activate the function with the icon. 20 Troubleshooting ACSS Notes ACSS is an acronym that stands for “Automatic Collimator Size Selection”. Simply put, this is automatic collimation. This means that, when active, you cannot collimate larger than your cassette size, but you can collimate smaller. ACSS has a condition that must be met for it to be active, and that condition is: • The cassette must be centered in the bucky tray (table or wall) Look for the mark on your cassette that shows where the center is along that edge, and make sure that mark lines up with the small indent on the spring mechanism in the bucky tray that secures the cassette in the tray. Then push the bucky tray all the way in. 1. When the cassette is properly inserted, ACSS will be displayed on the LCD display of the tube. This indicates that ACSS is active. 2. If you see “Manual” on the tube after pushing the bucky tray in, then ACSS is not active. This is usually a result of not having the cassette centered properly. *Note: You cannot make an exposure in the table or wall bucky if ACSS is not active. Re-centering the cassette should activate ACSS. Remember, ACSS only applies to exposures in the table and wall bucky. It does not apply to tabletop exposures. The Message Field The Message Field is the area of the Touch User Interface next to where the system green “Ready” field is displayed with the check mark, indicating an exposure can be made. HO 117 2.0 H 115cm H/U/D + - 21 Troubleshooting This is also the area where system error messages are displayed Notes STOP xxxº HBO 8 :17 +2.0 H xxxcm HJW/D + The various messages that may be displayed are as follows: 1. The bucky tray is open (table or wall). No exposure 2. The cassette has been exposed. No exposure 3. The Emergency Stop button has been activated STOF 4. The SID on the wall bucky is not defined (not in detent). No exposure 5. Undefined image receptor (cassette not centered). No exposure 6. Call Service 7. Generator not ready. No exposure Key Points 1. If there are more than 3 messages, only one will be displayed. 2. If there are 3 or fewer messages, all will be displayed. 22 Notes 23 Notes 24 Notes 25 Notes 26 Contact Information Summary Welcome to Siemens Healthcare Discover. Try.
