RAX: Positioning for Imaging at the Table

This job aid will cover the best practices for positioning at the table.

RAX: Positioning for Imaging at the Table XPRF The Multitom RAX table moves up and down only. Positioning the patient’s anatomy in the Field of View is done by centering the overhead tube over the area of interest. 1. The table must be at the working height or above to get the detector under that table. Use the kickplate on the table base or the remote control to raise the table. It will stop at the working height. It can be raised beyond that if desired. 2. Use one of the “SmartMove” buttons to move the detector and tube into position for that Or- gan Program. 3. To position the light field over the area of interest, use the transverse/longitudinal button (or- ange and green movements). The detector will follow the tube movements. 7-00 I 1 No acq. FLC not ready # 45.3" # 16.5" | ACSS 16.5 " = NOTE: Using the transverse/longitudinal/vertical button – “All Locks Release” – (orange, green and blue) may cause the detector to move toward the table into the collision zone of the table. Tube/Detector tracking may not be possible while the detector is in this position. It may be neces- sary to manually move the detector down out of the collision zone before proceeding to the next image. 4. In the Setup Tab, there is a speed sensitivity selection. This sets the speed at which the tube will move during manual movement. Using the drop down, pick the desired speed. The slow- est is the top selection and the fastest on the bottom.
