Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Users need to be aware when using these protocols for daily on line plan adaptation that: 1) The images acquired using these protocols do not represent the average position of the anatomy during the respiratory motion cycle. The images are based on data acquired around full expiration. 2) The display of the images in the Elekta Unity Application software does not provide information about the protocol used to acquire the image eg. with or without respiratory triggering. Users must select an appropriate scan protocol that is representative of the respiratory phase used in the reference plan.
