IMPORTANT! . . . X-RAY PROTECTION
X-ray equipment if not properly used may cause injury. Accordingly, the instructions herein contained should be thoroughly read and understood by everyone who will use the equipment before you attempt to place this equipment in operation. The General Electric Company, Medical Systems Group, will be glad to assist and cooperate in placing this equipment in use. Although this apparatus incorporates a high degree of protection against x-radiation other than the useful beam, no practical design of equipment can provide complete protection. Nor can any practical design compel the operator to take adequate precautions to prevent the possibility of any persons carelessly exposing themselves or others to radiation. It is important that everyone having anything to do with x-radiation be properly trained and fully acquainted with the recommendations of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements as published in NCRP Reports available from NCRP Publications, 7910 Woodmont Avenue, Room 1016, Bethesda, Maryland 20814, and of the International Commission on Radiation Protection, and take adequate steps to protect against injury. The equipment is sold with the understanding that the General Electric Company, Medical Systems Group, its agents, and representatives have no responsibility for injury or damage which may result from improper use of the equipment. Various protective material and devices are available. It is urged that such materials or devices be used.

CERTIFIED ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR STATEMENT
All electrical installations that are preliminary to positioning of the equipment at the site prepared for the equipment shall be performed by licensed electrical contractors. In addition, electrical feeds into the Power Distribution Unit shall be performed by licensed electrical contractors. Other connections between pieces of electrical equipment, calibrations, and testing shall be performed by qualified GE Medical personnel. The products involved (and the accompanying electrical installations) are highly sophisticated, and special engineering competence is required. In performing all electrical work on these products, GE will use its own specially trained field engineers. All of GE’s electrical work on these products will comply with the requirements of the applicable electrical codes. The purchaser of GE equipment shall only utilize qualified personnel (i.e., GE’s field engineers, personnel of third-party service companies with equivalent training, or licensed electricians) to perform electrical servicing on the equipment.

OFF–LINE CALIBRATION

This program makes a calibration file from raw data files acquired in off–line or on–line scans. You need the following raw data: AIR DATA and PHANTOM DATA Note D This program changes the existing calibration file. Save these files to a floppy diskette before you start this program. D Gather all the raw data used to make the calibration file under the same conditions, on the same system. D Perform the air calibration (Off–Line) prior to performing the phantom calibration (Off–Line). D To terminate this program during execution, press the [Cancel] key to return to the Maintenance menu.

CT NUMBER ADJUSTMENT

‘CT Number Adjustment’ means to change a part of the CAL files with conversion coefficients called β and γ so that water and air images have CT Numbers 0 and –1000, respectively. The coefficients β and γ are calculated from scanned images of water and air. See ‘CT Number Adjustment’, of system of the Functional Check / Adjustment manual, for details.

TEMPERATURE INITIALIZE

This function sets the parameter that simulates the temperature of the x–ray tube anode and its case to the maximum value allowed. During (off–line) manual exposures, the service person should wait the recommended minimum time between exposures. The CPU keeps a running tally of manual exposures, but does not calculate or impose any delays, nor does it measure the actual heat generated in the x–ray tube. Use this TEMPERATURE INITIALIZE function after performing off–line exposures if sufficient cooling time for the next scans is desired. 1. 2. Select 10 (TEMPERATURE INITIALIZE).

LEDs are set at the start of each routine. Example: 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 bit 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 (LSB) (90H) ‘F’ means ‘Illuminated’ and equals ‘1’: ‘f’ equals ‘0’. so it is normally not necessary to decode the LEDs status. the LEDs display the corresponding error code. Read the LEDs from top to bottom (MSB to LSB). All hexa–decimal codes are displayed with the letter ‘H’. If any error occurs during self–testing. Decode the top four LEDs to create the most significant hex digit (the leftmost digit) and the bottom four to create the least significant hex digit (the rightmost digit). More detailed status and information is displayed on the CRT from CPW Phase 2 test.

Illustration shows an example of single channel ring. This failure can also be caused by a single channel signal view data drop during data conversion or data transfer. measure the ring diameter and use the ring diameter chart (Section 1-2). Single Channel Ring Phantom The failure of one input capacitor or one Detector channel causes a single failure . To identify a DAS channel. then use the ring diameter chart (Section 1-2) to determine the DAS channel. Phantom 22 Channel Wide Band A unit conditioning circuit failure causes 22 channels to fail. Single Channel Streak If a single channel failure occurs during one view period. it appears as single line on image (streak).GE MEDICAL SYSTEMS REV 0 CT SYTEC/SYTEC i SERIES DIAGNOSTICS 2242061 SECTION 2 – IMAGE PROBLEMS (DETECTOR RELATED) 2-1 ARTIFACT PROBLEM The following illustrations are examples which may be caused by DAS component failure. To identify the DAS channel which caused this streak. use the circle cursor to measure the distance from image center to the streak. Phantom 2–1 DAS/DETECTOR . Illustration shows an example of a 22 Channel Wide Band Ring.
