X-RAY WARNING

X-RAY WARNING

ATTENTION
Les appareils à rayons X sont dangereux à la fois pour le patient et pour le manipulateur si les
mesures de protection ne sont pas strictement appliquees
Bien que cet appareil soit construit selon les normes de sécurité les plus sévères, la source de rayonnement X représente un danger lorsque le
manipulateur est non qualifié ou non averti. Une exposition excessive au rayonnement X entraîne des dommages à l’organisme.
Par conséquent, toutes les précautions doivent être prises pour éviter que les personnes non autorisées ou non qualifiées utilisent cet appareil
créant ainsi un danger pour les autres et pour elles-mêmes.
Avant chaque manipulation, les personnes qualifiées et autorisées à se servir de cet appareil doivent se renseigner sur les mesures de protec-
tion établies par la Commission Internationale de la Protection Radiologique, Annales 60 : Recommandations de la Commission Internationale
sur la Protection Radiologique et les normes nationales en vigueur.

WARNING
X-ray equipment is dangerous to both patient and operator unless measures of protection are
strictly observed
Though this equipment is built to the highest standards of electrical and mechanical safety, the useful x-ray beam becomes a source of danger
in the hands of the unauthorized or unqualified operator. Excessive exposure to x-radiation causes damage to human tissue.
Therefore, adequate precautions must be taken to prevent unauthorized or unqualified persons from operating this equipment or exposing
themselves or others to its radiation.
Before operation, persons qualified and authorized to operate this equipment should be familiar with the Recommendations of the International
Commission on Radiological Protection, contained in Annals Number 60 of the ICRP, and with applicable national standards.

ATENCION
Los aparatos de rayos X son peligrosos para el paciente y el manipulador cuando las normas de
proteccion no estan observadas
Aunque este aparato está construido según las normas de seguridad más estrictas, la radiación X constituye un peligro al ser manipulado por
personas no autorizadas o incompetentes. Una exposición excesiva a la radiación X puede causar daños al organismo.
Por consiguiente, se deberán tomar todas las precauciones necesarias para evitar que las personas incompetentes o no autorizadas utilicen
este aparato, lo que sería un peligro para los demás y para sí mismas.
Antes de efectuar las manipulaciones, las personas habilitadas y competentes en el uso de este aparato, deberán informarse sobre las normas
de protección fijadas por la Comisión Internacional de la Protección Radiológica, Anales No 60: Recomendaciónes de la Comisión Internacio-
nal sobre la Protección Radiológica y normas nacionales.

ACHTUNG
Röntgenapparate sind eine gefahr fÜr patienten sowie bedienungspersonal, wenn die geltenden
sicherheitsvorkehrungen nicht genau beachtet werden
Dieser Apparat entspricht in seiner Bauweise strengsten elektrischen und mechanischen Sichereitsnormen, doch in den Händen unbefugter
oder unqualifizierter Personen wird er zu einer Gefahrenquelle. Übermäßige Röntgenbestrahlung ist für den menschlichen Organismus
schädlich.
Deswegen sind hinreichende Vorsichtsmaßnahmen erforderlich, um zu verhindern, daßunbefugte oder unqualifizierte Personen solche Geräte
bedienen oder sich selbst und andere Personen deren Bestrahlung aussetzen können.
Vor Inbetriebnahme dieses Apparats sollte sich das qualifizierte und befugte Bedienungspersonal mit den geltenden Kriterien für den gefahr-
losen Strahleneinsatz durch sorgfältiges Studium des Hefts Nr. 60 der Internationalen Kommission für Strahlenschutz (ICRP) vertraut machen:

GE Healthcare Senographe 2000 D Acquisition System

Revision 1 Service Manual 2302228-3-100

System Description

3. PRESENTATION
Senographe 2000 D is the new Digital Mammography System from GE Medical Systems. It has been
designed to perform Screening examinations as well as Diagnostic Views (including Spot compression
Magnified and/or Coned views). It is a modular system that eliminates the need for film cassettes, and
takes advantage of digital technology, including on-screen image display, Networking, Filming, and
Archiving.
The Senographe 2000D is equipped with a dual track X-ray tube (molybdenum/rhodium) and a digital
detector. The digital detector is a flat panel of amorphous silicon on which cesium iodide is deposited to
maximize detection of X-rays. Positioning operations and X-ray exposure are controlled by the Control
Panel which also controls power to all parts of the Senographe 2000D system.
1. Senographe 2000 D's digital technology offers the capability to acquire Images in near-real time and
to process them, with the ability to vary brightness and contrast levels and manipulate images.
2. It also offers high examination productivity as compared with screen/film, and introduces new appli-
cations such as Networking and Archiving.
3. Senographe 2000 D is built on the Senogrpahe DMR Platform, recognized for Image Quality superi-
ority. The Rhodium spectrum of the Senographe 2000 D's tube is well adapted to Digital Imaging.
The Senographe 2000D includes an acquisition work station ("AWS") monitor, keyboard and mouse,
computer, electronics, accessory storage, and uninterruptible power supply. The AWS is used for
image acquisition, processing, and display. The AWS can also be used for database management,
and can send images to archive, review, or filming.
4. The Acquisition Workstation displays acquired images in the room, allowing immediate evaluation of
breast positioning and possible motion blur, or adjustment of brightness and contrast.
Archiving, Networking, and Filming are all possible from the Acquisition Workstation, which can pro-
duce any number of equally high quality film copies as needed.
A hard-copy laser-film printer is used for image interpretation. Printer window width and window level
are set automatically, based on the image content. Images are displayed per film 1 on 1.
Several options are available for use with the Senographe 2000D system. These options include a
Senographe 2000D review workstation, a mass archiving system, a laser camera, networking capa-
bilities, and CD-ROM interchange media.
5. The optional Review Workstation is a stand-alone workstation, with its own dedicated computer and
image database, connected to the Acquisition workstation by a high speed link. It supports image dis-
play and manipulation.
This powerful computer is equipped with two dedicated, very high resolution B & W monitors and a
dedicated keypad. Networking is possible from this workstation, as well as printing and receiving
images from an archive device.

Revision 1 Service Manual 2302228-3-100

System Description

4. SYSTEM COMPONENTS
4-1. Overview
1. The Senographe 2000 D Gantry is equipped with a digital detector. Positioning operations and X-ray
exposure are controlled by the Control Panel, usually mounted on a protective screen, which also
controls power to the gantry and generator of the Senographe 2000 D system.
2. The Senographe 2000 D includes an Acquisition Workstation (AWS) monitor, keyboard and mouse,
computer, electronics, accessory storage, and UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply).
3. Accessories (standard and optional).
The following sections describe each of these components.

4-2. Senographe 2000 D X-ray System


The Senographe 2000 D is equipped with a dual track X-ray tube (molybdenum/rhodium) and a digital
detector. Mammographic examinations can be made with patients standing or sitting; both contact and
magnification views are available.
Images are acquired by direct digitization; they are displayed immediately on the AWS monitor and are
stored for later diagnostic review. They can be processed and/or filmed.
AOP (Automatic Optimization of Parameters) and manual setting modes are provided for control of X-ray
parameters; the system provides auto-collimation and other leading features.

4-3. Digital Detector and Image Receptor


The Digital Detector is built into the Image Receptor, shown below. It is a flat panel of amorphous silicon
on which cesium iodide is deposited to maximize detection of X-rays and transmission of light photons.
The high definition digital images produced are sent to the acquisition workstation for visualization and
processing.
The upper surface of the Image Receptor is a removable grid (Bucky). When the grid is not required, it is
easily removed and it can be replaced by an optional Breast Holder without grid.

4-4-4. Writing Table / Mouse Pad


The space to the right of the keyboard, with the integrated mouse pad, can be used for manipulating the
mouse, and as a writing surface. There is a recess for holding pens and pencils.
Note:
For the comfort of left handed users, the mouse can also be operated on any other horizontal sur-
face of the three-section table. The mouse cable can be connected at either side of the keyboard
according to user requirements.

4-4-5. Accessory Storage Unit


The Accessory Storage Unit is located inside the drawer at the bottom of the Senographe 2000 D cart.

store items removed from the Senographe 2000 D, or other accessories. Access to the compartments of
the storage unit can be from the front of the cart, or the unit can be turned 90 degrees either way for
access from the side.

4-4-6. Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)

Catch for opening the drawer


UPS front panel
To assure system safety in the case of disturbances in the mains supply, the Senographe 2000 D system
incorporates an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), housed in the lower part of the Senographe 2000 D
cart.
During power fluctuations or brief interruptions, the UPS assures an unchanging supply to the worksta-
tion and the acquisition system, thereby preventing mains disturbances being transmitted to the system.
When a power failure occurs, or when the user switches off the system from the AWS Browser, the UPS
continues to supply power to the workstation during the time needed for the workstation to shut down in
an orderly manner.

dle, and a magnification stand. Accessories available as options include:
• Graduated biopsy compression paddle (for 2D localization) with optical localizer.
• Extra X-ray shield
• X-ray remote control hand switch
• Hydraulic chair

5-2. System Options


System options available include:
• Review workstation.
• Mass archiving system. When this option is installed and connected to the Senographe 2000 D,
acquired images can be sent to the mass archiving device for permanent storage, either automati-
cally or on request. A list of all patients ever imaged on the Senographe 2000 D system can be kept
on the mass archiving device, making future retrievals fast and easy.
• Laser Camera. To provide hard copies of images, the Senographe 2000 D system can be connected
to a laser camera for film output.

WARNING
Only images produced by GE-recommended laser cameras can be used for final interpre-
tation of examinations. For compatible printers, see the latest product data sheets for this
system, which you can obtain from your local sales representative.

• Networking. The Senographe 2000 D is DICOM compliant, allowing it to be connected in a network


with other compliant devices for the exchange of images. Networking allows you to transmit images
acquired with the Senographe 2000 D system to other DICOM-compatible review stations, using the
"Network Push" function of the AWS Browser. In some cases, additional studies will be needed for
the implementation of customized connections.
• CD-R Interchange Media. A CD-R (CD-Recordable) unit can be installed in the Senographe 2000 D
cart, allowing selected sets of images to be saved on CD-ROMs for communication purposes (e.g.,
recording images for referring physicians, training, personal image library, etc.). It is NOT recom-
mended for permanent archiving.

Notice:
When installing the monitor, take care not to damage the support paint.

6-1. Monitor
1. Place the monitor in its position on the top of the Cart. Note that
the support is not square; it must be positioned with the small hole
(for cables) at the rear.
2. Remove the magnetic covers from the four monitor clamps (A).
3. Position the clamps and secure them to hold the monitor in posi-
tion (5 mm Allen key).
4. Replace the four magnetic covers on the clamps. A
6-2. Monitor Connections
1. Remove the monitor rear cover.
2. Pass the monitor cables (power cable and five-way BNC signal cable, leaving the cart through the
cable cover behind the monitor) through the slot at the rear of the monitor.
3. Route the power cable so that the ferrite ring is to the right of the cable space (to allow the maximum
space for routing the signal cables), and connect it to the power input socket.
4. Identify and connect three of the BNC connectors to the monitor signal inputs (B) as follows:
a. Video input: Green cable (marked G).
b. Synch input; Grey cable (marked H).

d. Use 75-ohm BNC terminators to terminate the remaining two BNC connectors (Blue and Red).
Leave them unconnected.

CAUTION

When routing the signal cables, position


them with the ferrite ring to the left of the
cable space, so that the cables are bent as
gently as possible (as shown here). Focus
problems can occur if the cables are bent too
tightly.
5. Use tie-wraps to secure the cables (including those
unconnected).
6. Set the monitor switch to ON and install the monitor
rear cover.

5-1. Route Cables from the Gantry to the Generator Cabinet


These cables are grouped in two harnesses. One is contained in a white flexible cover, the other is run
through a semi-flexible black tubular cable conduit. They are already connected in the Gantry Cabinet - it
is only necessary to route and connect them to the Generator Cabinet. Do not secure cables with cable
ties until all have been routed and connected.
1. Do not route and connect cables until the Gantry and Generator Cabinet are in their normal working
positions.
2. Remove the Generator Cabinet covers (refer to Job Card D/R 101 - Removal of Covers on page 539
if necessary).
3. Remove the two red brackets which clamped the cabinet to the pallet for transport (now held to the
bottom of the front and rear cover panels by adhesive tape).
4. Run the cable harnesses from the Gantry to the Generator Cabinet through floor or wall ducts as
appropriate. Facing the front panel (with switches), cable entry is at the bottom of the left-hand side of
the cabinet.
5. When you are satisfied that all equipment is in its
correct position and unlikely to be moved, and that
the cables have been correctly routed, open up
any excess length of the black flexible conduit at
the Generator Cabinet end. Cut it to the correct
length for clamping at the cabinet entry point.
6. Clamp the white cable harness as shown. Secure
the black conduit in the U-shaped clip mounted
under the clamp.

7. Separate the cables and tubes contained in the black


harness. The electrical cables (A) will be routed first.
The air tubes (clear plastic; B) and water tubes (red
reinforced tubing, insulated at the conditioner end; C)
will be run separately. C

5-2. Cabinet internal routing

WARNING
It is important that the instructions given for routing the two water tubes are carefully fol-
lowed. Only the insulated parts of the tubes should pass through the cabinet; any excess
must be coiled below the cabinet as specified. If these instructions are not followed, the
heat of the cabinet can affect the temperature of the detector cooling water and make cor-
rect detector temperature control impossible.
This section gives requirements for routing cables and tubes in the Generator Cabinet. Before perma-
nently securing any item, be sure that you have studied and understood all the requirements of the con-
nections described in this job card. It may be necessary to try different arrangements for excess cable
before finally deciding on the best cable routes.
• Any excess length of water tubes is coiled on the floor in the space beneath the bottom of the cabi-
net.
• Any excess length of electrical cables is coiled in the space above the cabinet cable entry, over the
guide provided at the top of the space and down to the clamping bracket at the bottom of the cabinet.
• Any excess length of air tubes is coiled with the electrical cables.
Take great care not to allow the air tubes to be pinched by the weight of cables.
• Make connections and route cables in the order given:
- Black harness and X-ray Console cables; see section Black Harness and X-ray Console Cable
Connection.
- Water tubes; see section Water Tube Connection.
- White Harness cables; see section White Harness Connections.
- Air Tubes; see section Air Tube Connection.

2. TOOLS
• Voltmeter (a.c.)

3. SAFETY PROCEDURES
During the procedures in this Job Card, you will be in close proximity to circuits operating at line voltage
- take appropriate precautions.

4. PREREQUISITES
You must follow the chronological order given in Job Card IST 001 - Installation Steering Guide on page
39.
Note:
Make sure the X-ray console is connected to the generator.

5. PROCEDURE
If the resistance at the line input to the Senographe generator is too high, there will be a significant volt-
age drop when the generator draws maximum power. This procedure checks that the resistance is within
acceptable limits.

5-1. Preparation
1. Switch off the system; set the generator power switch 200-S1 to the 0 position.
2. Disconnect voltage selection wire SEL from its lug on the generator board 200-PL1; reconnect it to
the 0 V lug.
Notice:
The 0 V position of the SEL wire is reserved exclusively for this line resistance measurement. The
Senographe cannot function normally when the SEL wire is in this position. Do not attempt to
switch on the Senographe at this point - follow the instructions below.
3. Connect the ac voltmeter to the input end of the power switch 200-S1; Note and write down the
observed value of the open-circuit line voltage V1:

V1 =......................................

5-2. Procedure
1. Turn the AC supply on: set the generator switch 200-S1 to the 1 position.
Note:
Read the next step completely before performing it. You will have only 3 seconds to read the volt-
meter; if you miss the reading you will have to wait about 15 minutes to repeat it.
2. While looking at the voltmeter, press the power-on switch on the generator board 200-PL2. During a
period of three seconds, a resistive load (power resistors R1 and R4 on the generator board) is con-
nected across the line input, causing a drop in the voltage reading on the voltmeter. Note and write

down this closed circuit voltage:

V2 = ....................................
Note:
After this three-second period the red LED DE3 on the generator board light, indicating that heating
of the resistive load prevents an immediate repeat reading. After about 15 minutes, the LED goes
out, the reading can then be repeated if necessary.
3. Calculate line resistance RL according to the formula:
RL = [(V1 - V2) / V2] RINT
where RINT, the internal resistive load, depends on the nominal a.c. supply voltage V:
Voltage (V) RINT (Ω)
200 11
208 11
220 11
240 11
380 44
415 44
4. Turn off the Senographe: set the generator power switch to the 0 position and switch off AC power.
5. Disconnect the line voltage selection wire SEL from the 0 V lug on the generator board; reconnect it
to the lug corresponding to the nominal (not measured) AC line voltage. Tighten the lug nuts to a
torque setting of 4 Nm.
Check that the calculated line resistance RL does not exceed the maximum value given in Table 1 for
the nominal a.c. supply voltage.
If the calculated value exceeds the maximum value given in Table 1, consult with the hospital electri-
cal department and your OLC. The problem must be resolved before the Senographe 2000 D system
is put into service.

3. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
CAUTION

These procedures produce X-rays. Be sure to take appropriate precautions.

4. PREREQUISITES
This procedure should only be used when the performance of Job Card CAL 003 - X-Ray Tube Heater
Current on page 199 has been impossible due to excessive arcing.

5. PROCEDURE
This procedure is to be used for re-starting an X-ray tube which was known to be good upon leaving the
factory, but now exhibits arcing after a long period of inactivity.
The principle is to take a series of 12 pre-determined exposures, starting at low kV values and progres-
sively increasing towards high kV values. If arcing occurs during an exposure, some or all exposures are
automatically repeated. If persistent arcing occurs, the warm-up procedure is automatically terminated.
Proceed as follows:
4. Start from application mode. Change the position of the installation menu enable switch (switch B1 on
generator CPU board 400-PL3).
Note:
This must only be done if the Senographe has been switched off since the last access to SETUP/
GENE/INSTAL or SETUP/ARM/VALID/INSTAL.
5. Select SETUP/GENE/INSTAL/GENE/GENE/TUBE/WarmUp on the X-ray console. The track/kV
combination for the first exposure should appear on the X-ray console display.
6. Press the 2nd trigger button and HOLD IT DOWN while the exposures are taken.
Note:
There is a time delay of 10 seconds between exposures. You can release the 2nd trigger button
during this 10 second period, then press it again to continue, but the minimum time between ex-
posures will still be 10 seconds. If the tube overheats at some point, exposures will be inhibited
until it cools down again. During the cooling period, the 2nd trigger button can be released; as soon
as the display shows that the X-ray tube has sufficiently cooled, press the 2nd trigger button to con-
tinue.
7. When the warm-up procedure is finished, the message Tube OK normally appears on the X-ray con-
sole display. If persistent arcing occurred during the procedures, the message Too many spits
appears on the X-ray console display.

In installation mode, the six function keys below the display window carry out functions or menu
selections which depend on the current procedure. The choice is indicated by a label displayed
above the key. The illustration below shows typical X-ray console displays before (left) and after
(right) entering installation mode. The normal key symbols (shown shaded) no longer apply, and in
the example shown two of the keys (shown shaded) have no function; the remaining four carry out
the functions displayed above them (e.g., the left hand key now gives access to the GENE menus).

• Some special installation menus are displayed only after changing the position of the installation
enable switch (see below).

2-3. Installation Menus


Installation Menus are special menus which allow specific Gantry or Generator installation procedures to
be performed. To access installation menus from application mode, proceed as follows:

1. Enter installation mode (press the SETUP key on the X-ray console once).
2. Change the position of the installation menu enable GENE CPU BOARD 400-PL3
switch (switch B1-8 on Generator CPU Board 400-
PL3). Note that the original position of the switch is
not important. When the system is powered up it
B1
automatically enters application mode with installa-
tion menus disabled; the switch position at that time ?
P1 P2
is memorized as the "installation-menu-disabled"
position.
The installation menus can also be accessed by pasword. Selct the PASSWORD key and enter your
password (given at the training course).
3. Two function keys are now labelled (on the display) as GENE and ARM. Select Gantry or Generator
installation menus as follows:
a. For Gantry installation menus: press the key labelled ARM, then press the VALID key. The two
right-hand keys are now labelled INSTAL and MAINT. Press the INSTAL key to access installation
menus (the MAINTenance menu is not available during installation).
b. For Generator installation menus: press the key labelled GENE. The VALID key is not required.
The two right-hand keys are now labelled INSTAL and MAINT. Press the INSTAL key to access
installation menus (the MAINTenance menu is not available during installation).
Notice:
When you have finished using installation mode, you must switch off the Gantry before handing
over the machine to the user, to lock out access to installation mode.

2-4. X-ray console Self-Test


To carry out a X-ray console self-test you must press five keys simultaneously. Refer to the illustration
below. Press and hold the two keys A, and press the three keys B.

Revision 1 Service Manual 2302228-3-100

Job Card CFG 001 - The X-ray Console

2-5. Saved Parameters Checksum


Parameters resulting from installation or non-proprietary maintenance procedures are saved in memory
zones whose contents are not lost when the Gantry is switched off.
To perform the saved parameter checksum function CKSUM, select either SETUP/GENE/INSTAL/
CKSUM/CKSUM (for Generator parameters) or SETUP/ARM/VALID/INSTAL/CKSUM/CKSUM (for
Gantry parameters). You can now return to application mode without receiving a checksum error mes-
sage.
It is not mandatory to do a checksum each time you leave a menu. There is no risk of losing data if you
switch off the Senographe displaying a checksum error.

2-6. Re-loading Default (Initial) Parameters

WARNING
These functions are not normally used after the Senographe 2000 D has left the factory.
To re-load generator or gantry default parameters (prior to any installation or calibration procedures), use
the appropriate CLEAR menu. This executes a software power-up comparable to the first hardware
power-up of the generator or gantry.
When the Generator CLEAR menu is used, the Senographe returns to application mode (to return to
installation mode, you must change the position of the installation menu enable switch again).
When the Gantry CLEAR menu is used, the Senographe returns to the gantry installation entry level
(SETUP/ARM/VALID).
After use of the CLEAR menu, a CHECKSUM ERROR message is displayed. All generator or gantry
calibration procedures must be performed, followed by a CKSUM to enable use of the new
parameters.

WARNING
The generator CLEAR menu causes the recorded thermal condition of critical components
(tube, tube housing, generator, etc.) to be reset to the cold condition. This means that an
excessive temperature rise at the time that this menu is used may not be immediately
detected by the software thermal protection.

2-7. Representation of Numeric Parameters


When displayed on the X-ray console, most numeric values appear in the form of real numbers in scien-
tific notation floating point format with four significant figures, as shown in the examples below:
-1.250E+3 (= -1250.00); +4.345E-1 (= 0.4345) +1.000E+0 (= 1.000)

2-8. Display of Parameter Values


To display parameter values on the X-ray Console, access the calibration menu for the procedure that
computes the parameter. Typically this is done at a menu choice between CALIB and PARAM. Select
PARAM to display the parameter value.

If the calibration procedure computes more than one parameter, turn the kV dial to display the
parameters in sequence.

Job Card CFG 001 - The X-ray Console

2-9. Modification and entry of values


At menu points allowing entry of a measured value or modification of a parameter, there are two possible
selections: NEXT and VALID. Select NEXT to allow the first character to be entered (by changing the dis-
played character). Select NEXT again to enter the following character, and so on.

Use the kV dial to change the character being entered. Numeric or alpha-numeric characters are
displayed, according to the function. Parameters are entered or modified in scientific notation form (see
above). Select VALID when all characters are correctly entered. If you make a mistake, select NEXT
repeatedly until you arrive at the faulty value, then correct it by rotating the kV dial.
To exit the modification routine, press SETUP once.
Note:
Pressing the VALID key is effective ONLY when the entire value, including exponent, is displayed.
This means that if you correct a digit after making a mistake, as described above, you must press
the NEXT key repeatedly until the entire parameter value is visible before you can enter the new
value using the VALID key.

2-10. The DISP Parameter


• The DISP (display) parameter is provided to aid service procedures; it controls the display of certain
parameters after an exposure. When it is set to YES, the two groups of exposure parameters shown
in the table below are displayed alternately:

Group 1: kV mAs mA Time Ih

Group 2: Composition Thickness Prep dose Prep kV Prep track Prep filter Delta grid

Composition Breast composition


Thickness: Breast thickness in equivalent cm of plexiglass.
Prep dose: Dose for pre-shot (returned by IDC)
Prep kV: kV used for pre-shot
Prep track: Track used for pre-shot
Prep filter: Filter used for pre-shot
Delta grid: Delta time (ms) from end of X-ray emission to grid U-turn
To change the DISP parameter, access SETUP/GENE/INSTAL/GENE/CONFIG/DISP, and select YES or
NO. A CKSUM is NOT necessary because this parameter is not a saved parameter. When power is
turned off, the value of DISP is lost and reverts to NO at the next power-up.

1. INTRODUCTION
This module provides information for initial configuration of a Senographe 2000 D system. It contains two
sections:
• Configuration procedures. Procedures which are required to set up the system for local site condi-
tions.
• Configuration check information. For use only if you suspect that certain important settings have
been changed; most settings are made in the factory and do not need to be changed on site.

2. CONFIGURATION PROCEDURES
2-1. Prerequisites
The system must have powered up and reached a stable state with no checksum error displayed on the
X-ray console.
• If, on the first power up, CHECKSUM ERROR (GEN) or ARM CHECKSUM ERROR is displayed,
proceed as follows:
Reload the Generator or Gantry (or both) saved parameters, using the diskette (p/n 2152250) deliv-
ered in the accessories kit. This diskette is labelled with the same product locator number as your
Senographe 2000 D. Files are identified as Gxxxx.DAT (Generator) and Axxxx.DAT (Gantry/Arm),
where xxxx is the factory serial number. There should be no checksum error after correct reloading of
these parameters.
• Enable access to installation menus by changing the position of the installation menu enable switch
(switch B1-8 on generator CPU board 400-PL3) as described in Job Card CFG 001 - The X-ray Con-
sole on page 121.

2-2. Set Language

tion) following an exposure is desired. Select SETUP/DECOMP. Select YES or NO as required.
4. Ask the doctor if a beep tone is desired. Select SETUP/BEEP. Select YES or NO as required.
5. Ask the doctor for the desired maximum height during automatic decompression (between 10 and 38
cm). Select SETUP/HEIGHT. Press + or - on the X-ray console repeatedly until the desired maximum
height is displayed.

3. CONFIGURATION CHECK INFORMATION


Note:
It is not normally necessary to set the configuration parameters listed here. They are set to their
correct values in the factory, or by the link from the AWS. They are given here for convenience in
the event that you suspect that they have been changed, perhaps during trouble-shooting.

3-1. Set Date and Time


• The Generator clock is updated automatically by the AWS each time the Senographe subsystem is
powered up (either alone or when the complete system is powered up). It is not normally necessary
to change it manually.
Note:
After a Generator CLEAR operation, the current date and the date of the last installation mode ac-
cess are both set to the Generator software release date; the time is set to 0:00:00. The current
date and time are updated at the next power up.
• The clock is used for the following functions:
- Thermal protection cooling algorithms, whether or not the generator is turned on.
- Recording dates and times in the error log.
- Recording the date of last access to installation mode.
• If it is necessary to change the date or time on the Gantry manually, note the following points:
- Dates (menu path: SETUP/GENE/INSTAL/GENE/CONFIG/DATE) are entered in the form DD/
MM/YY; e.g., for February 14th, 2001, you must enter 14/02/01.
- Time (menu path: SETUP/GENE/INSTAL/GENE/CONFIG/HOUR) is entered in 24-hour format;
e.g., for 3:13:27 pm you must enter 15:13:27.

3-2. Check X-ray Tube Housing Configuration.


• Select SETUP/ARM/VALID/INSTAL/CONFIG/TUBE/YES. (the X-ray tube housing is inclinable on all
Gantries).

The objective in this section is to detect incorrect mains supply configuration - before it is too late!

5-1. Check keep-alive supply voltage. POWER BOARD 200-PL1


R4
R1
1. Check that generator Mains Supply Switch 200-S1 is open
(i.e. in the ”0” position) and that the Mains Distribution Rack
TR2
circuit breaker is open (i.e. in the ”0” position ).
2. Close the main hospital supply circuit breaker.
3. Connect the voltmeter (set to 20 VDC scale) to generator
mains power board 200-PL1 between test points PT15 (+VE)
X1
and PT12 (0VE). See illustration. PT12 0VE

4. Close generator Mains Supply Switch 200-S1 (i.e., turn it to PT14 PT15 +VE
the ”1” position) and read the voltmeter immediately. It should
- VE + VE
read +8 ±2 VDC.

CAUTION

If the voltmeter reading is outside this range, turn mains source OFF IMMEDIATELY and
check configuration of voltage selection board IN2 on generator mains distribution board
200-PL1 (see Job Card IST 008 - AC Connection on page 73).
5. Move the voltmeter from PT12 to PT14 (-VE). The voltmeter should read -8V ± 2VDC

7. Turn X-ray console on and read the voltmeter immediately. It should read 220 ± 20 VAC.

CAUTION

If the voltmeter reading is outside this range, open generator Mains Supply Switch 200-S1
IMMEDIATELY (turn it to the "0” position) and check mains voltage selection wire SEL on
generator mains distribution board 200-PL1 (see Job Card IST 008 - AC Connection on
page 73).

6. CHECK GENERATOR AND GANTRY DC SUPPLY VOLTAGES


6-1. Check generator DC supply voltages.
1. On generator CPU board 400-PL3, measure the DC voltage between TP110 and TP111 (GND). It
should be in the range +5.1±0.05 V. If necessary, adjust the voltage.

WARNING
The adjustment is made using the potentiometer located on the low voltage power supply
unit (on the rear of the board mounting plate).
To avoid any risk of electric shock, DO NOT TOUCH any of the other components on the
supply (later models are protected by a transparent cover).
2. On generator interface board 400-PL2, measure DC voltage (+12 V nominal) between PT3 and PT4.
The voltage should be in the range +11.5 to +12.5 VDC.
3. On generator interface board 400-PL2, measure DC voltage (-12 V nominal) between PT5 and PT4.
The voltage should be in the range -11.5 to -12.5 VDC.
Note:
Voltages measured in steps 2 and 3 above depend on the +5 V adjustment mentioned in step 1.
4. If the potentiometer located on the low voltage power supply unit (step 1) has been adjusted, apply a
suitable locking compound to prevent further movement.

6-2. Check gantry DC supply voltages.


1. On gantry power board 800-PL1, measure DC voltage (+27 V nominal) between terminals 3 and 1
(GND) of connector TB1. The voltage should be in the range +26 to +34 VDC.
2. On gantry CPU board 800-PL3, measure DC voltage (+5 V nominal) between TP110 and TP111
(GND). The voltage should be in the range +4.75 to +5.25 VDC.
Note:
Unlike the +5 V supply on the generator CPU board, the +5 V supply on the gantry CPU board can-
not be adjusted.

7. CHECK MAINS DISTRIBUTION RACK INPUT


If the above check for generator voltages was correct, this confirms that the correct voltage has been
selected for the generator input voltage.
Before switching power to the Mains Distribution Rack, check that the same voltage has been
selected for the Mains Distribution Rack transformer input tap.

1. SUPPLIES
None.

2. TOOLS
None.

3. APPLICABILITY
For network security purposes IP Filters have been implemented from ADS versions 17.4.5 and above.
The final steps in the following procedures that use the IPFreload.sh script are only applicable for ADS
versions 17.4.5.

WARNING
From ADS versions 17.4.5 and above a normal ping from a remote host to the ADS com-
puter will result in host unreachable message. This is normal and is due to the IP Filters
that have been implemented from ADS versions 17.4.5 for network security purposes.
However, a DICOM ping from a remote host to the ADS computer will work, and it is recom-
mended that you use a DICOM ping from the remote hosts for testing purposes.

4. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
No specific safety precautions are applicable.

5. PREREQUISITES
Obtain full details of the addresses, names and characteristics of the host(s) to be declared, from the
network administrator concerned and/or Remote Host Conformance statement documents.

• If STORAGE COMMITMENT is set to No; set MESSAGE SEND to Yes if you want an S to
appear in the Report Status column of the Study or Exam list when a study has been sent to the
Archival device.
• If STORAGE COMMITMENT is set to Yes; the fields Application Entity Title, Network Address,
and Port Number in the lower part of the window are highlighted. You must complete these fields,
even if the information is the same as that already entered (this is necessary to allow the possibil-
ity of images being sent to one remote host and committed to another).
4. On completion, click the Save button to update and close the window.
Note:
Network Remote Hosts are not updated in the /etc/inet/hosts file, but are found in the file /export/
home/sdc/Prefs/SdCRHosts. For this reason, it is not possible to use ping, telnet, spray and sim-
ilar commands using the hostname. The internet address must be used instead. For example, to
ping the MR operator's console from the workstation, do not use /usr/sbin/ping MR01_OC0. In-
stead, use the internet address, e.g., /usr/sbin/ping 192.9.200.1.
Therefore, though it is not mandatory to declare hosts in the /etc/hosts file when using the SdC
NET protocol, we recommend you to do it in any case.
5. For Senographe systems using ADS versions 17.4.5 and above you must reload the Senographe
system’s IP Filters so that the newly declared network host has access through the Senographe sys-
tem’s firewall via the DICOM protocol. To do this, perform the following sub-steps:
a. From behind the Browser, launch a command window
A command window appears.
b. Execute the IPFreload.sh script, by entering:

5-2. Ethernet Connection between AWS and Local Network


1. Route and connect the Ethernet cable from the network hub (provided in the Senographe 2000 D
networking kit) to the Ethernet network socket (C) on the AWS Cart patch panel. See illustration
below..

C
2. Connect the other local network devices to the hub. The hub connector positions used are not impor-
tant (except for special-purpose connector 8X, which must be left empty). However, you are recom-
mended to label the cables at the hub, to aid future trouble-shooting.

5-3. IP Addresses
This section explains how to change the Senographe 2000 D Hostname, IP address, subnet mask, and
other parameters.
Each Senographe 2000 D system is given a default external IP address during the factory check proc-
ess. To avoid conflicts (such as IP packet collision) inside the customer network, this Senographe 2000
D system’s external IP address should normally be changed at installation time to the recommended
address given below.
For the RWS, printer(s), archiving device, etc., refer to their respective documentation.
Notice:
If the system is connected to an external network (HIS/RIS, hospital network, etc.) the standard
recommended IP addresses may not be applicable. Suitable addresses will be defined by the GE
HNS consultant and the hospital network administrator.
Standard recommended external IP addresses:
Senographe 2000 D: 192.1.1.100
RWS 192.1.1.110
Printer 192.1.1.120
Archiver 192.1.1.130
DMPU (CAD) 192.1.1.140
If more than one S2000 D is connected to the network, use adresses 192.1.1.101, 192.1.1.102, etc. Sim-
ilarly, if other devices are duplicated, add 1 to the recommended base address for each additional
device.
Subnet mask:
ALL devices: 255.255.255.0

5-3-1 Distinction between the Senographe system’s internal and external IP address
The Senographe 2000 D system operates on two different networks, namely an internal network and an
external network, which are illustrated below.
Senographe 2000 D System

Internal Network : 192.168.1.0 External Network : 192.1.1.0

AWS
IDC
192.168.1.20 Ethernet Hospital
eri0 : 192.1.1.100
Switch Network
eri1 : 192.168.1.10

The Senographe 2000 D system’s internal network allows the internal components of the Senographe
2000 D system (that is, the AWS and IDC) to communicate internally amongst each other. By default,
this internal network uses a private network of 192.168.1.0 with a Netmask 255.255.255.0 on the inter-
face eri1, which is located in the AWS. Each Senographe 2000 D system component has a different
internal IP address of the format 192.168.1.x, where x varies depending on the component. The follow-
ing table summarizes each of the Senographe 2000 D component’s default internal IP addresses.

Component Host name IP Address


AWS Workstation ads 192.168.1.10

IDC idc 192.168.1.20

IDC Table idc_tbl 192.168.1.21

Laptop laptop 192.168.1.29

Titan titan 192.168.1.30

The IDC Table, Laptop and Titan entries in the table above are components that no longer exist,
but are still retained in the Senographe 2000 D system for legacy reasons.

The Senographe 2000 D system’s external network allows the AWS component of the Senographe
2000 D system to communicate with the rest of the hospital network. This external network is accesible
through the interface eri0, which is located in the AWS. As mentioned above on the previous page, it is
recommended that this interface has an extenal IP address of 192.1.1.100 with a Netmask
255.255.255.0.

Running the procedure in the following section will set all the Senographe 2000 D system’s internal IP
addresses back to their default values (which is beyond your control), and will allow you to configure the
Senographe 2000 D system’s external IP address to your preferred value.

The Senographe 2000 D system’s internal network must never be on the same network as the hospital’s
network. If the Senographe 2000 D system’s internal network is on the same network as the hospital’s
network, it will fail to communicate properly due to internal and external network routing problems There-
fore, if the hospital network is 192.168.1.0 then in addition to the configuration steps within this Job Card,
you must also perform Job Card CFG 010 - Changing Senographe 2000 D Internal IP Addresses on

page 179 so that the Senographe 2000 D system’s internal network is different to the hospital’s network.
If you need to perform Job Card CFG 010 - Changing Senographe 2000 D Internal IP Addresses ensure
that you run the network parameter configuration in this Job Card first. If you run the network parameter
configuration in this Job Card after you will overwrite the internal network settings that you modified in

7 DECLARE A ROUTER
Note:
This procedure is applicable only if station is a Sunblade 150.
To decleare a router you must create file called S93route in the /etc/rc2.d directory and add some lines
which declare the router. Each time the system boots the information in the /etc/rc2.d/S93route file is
processed automatically and the router is automatically declared. Use the following steps to declare a
router:
1. Open a command window.
2. Log in as root as follows:
a. At the ADS prompt enter:
su -root
b. When requested to specify the root password, enter:
operator
3. Change to /etc/rc2.d directory by entering:
cd /etc/rc2.d

4. Open the S93route file in the vi text editor by entering:


vi S93route

cfg008.fm
GE Healthcare Senographe 2000 D Acquisition System

Revision 1 Service Manual 2302228-3-100

Job Card CFG 008 - Networking Connection and Configuration

The S93route file appears in a vi text editor window.


5. Press the i key to enter insert mode, then type the following four lines (seperated by carraige
returns):
#!/bin/sh
# Section for routing
echo Starting route service
route add net <network number> <gateway address>

where <network number> is the address to be accessed through the gateway, and <gateway
address> is the IP of the gateway (router) indicated by the administrator.
To calculate the network number (with relation to the network mask) you can use this link to a net-
work/node calculator: http://library.mobrien.com/net.shtml or http://www.subnetonline.com/subcalc/
subnet9.html
Typing the "echo" lines will help you to locate any possible faults during boot in case of mistyping
the router information.
6. Press the Escape key to exit from insert mode, then save the file and quit vi by entering:
:wq!
7. Make the S93route file executable by entering:
chmod 777 S93route
8. Reboot the system for the changes to take effect by entering:
reboot

8 CHANGE AUTONEGOTIATION OF NETWORK INTERFACE


Note:
This procedure is applicable only if station is a Sunblade 150.
The workstation SunBlade 150 computer uses a network interface on the motherboard which is called
"eri". By default this interface is configured for: full duplex, 100 Mb/s, autonegotiation = yes.
You can read the current settings of the Network Interface at any time by using the following steps:
1. Log in as root as follows:
a. At the ADS prompt enter:
su -root
b. When requested to specify the root password, enter:
operator
2. Get the current full duplex and speed settings by entering:
ndd -get /dev/eri adv_100fdx_cap
If the system is running in full-duplex & 100 Mb mode the command line responds with the value 1,
other wise it responds with 0.
3. Get the negotiation settings by entering:
ndd -get /dev/eri adv_autoneg_cap
If the system is running in autonegotiation mode the command line responds with the value 1, and if
system is not running in autonegotiation mode the command line responds with the value 0.

Upon request of the local network administrator it may be desirable to force the speed of the Network
Interface to 100 Mbit/s without negotiation. In this case, you need to run a couple of ndd -set commands
as root user to change autonegotiation of the Network interface.

GE Healthcare Senographe 2000 D Acquisition System

Revision 1 Service Manual 2302228-3-100

Job Card CFG 008 - Networking Connection and Configuration

To set the autonegotiation to off on the network interface:


1. Log in as root as follows:
a. At the ADS prompt enter:
su -root
b. When requested to specify the root password, enter:
operator
2. Select the eri0 interface you intend to change by entering:
ndd -set /dev/eri instance 0
3. Set the eri0 interface’s autonegotiation capabilities to no (i.e. 0) by entering:
ndd -set /dev/eri adv_autoneg_cap 0

Alternatively, to make this setting permanent (done at each boot), you can put these two set ndd -set
command lines in the /etc/rc2.d/S93route file (with or without a route). Each time the system boots the
information in the /etc/rc2.d/S93route file is processed automatically, which ensures that the router is
automatically declared (if the lines for the router declaration exist) and the Network Interface is automat-
ically running in autonegotiation=no mode. To do this, use the following steps:
1. Open a command window.
2. Log in as root as follows:
a. At the ADS prompt enter:
su -root
b. When requested to specify the root password, enter:
operator
3. Change to /etc/rc2.d directory by entering:
cd /etc/rc2.d
4. Open the S93route file in the vi text editor by entering:
vi S93route
The S93route file appears in a vi text editor window.
5. Press the i key to enter insert mode, then type the following lines (seperated by carraige returns):
#!/bin/sh
# Section for routing
echo Starting route service
route add net <network number> <gateway address>
#
# Section for autoneg
echo Setting for no autoneg
ndd -set /dev/eri instance 0
ndd -set /dev/eri adv_autoneg_cap 0

where <network number> is the address to be accessed through the gateway, and <gateway
address> is the IP of the gateway (router) indicated by the administrator.
Typing the "echo" lines will help you to locate any possible faults during boot in case of mistyping
the router or autonegotiation information.
The example above includes sections for both declaring a router and disabling autonegotiation.
Type one or both sections according to your requirements.

4. PREREQUISITES
The AWS must have been correctly installed and configured.
The local Network must have been correctly installed, and the Network Printers to be declared must
have been correctly installed and connected to the Network.
Make sure the following information is available before starting to install printers:
• Internet address and Hostname of Network printer(s). This information can be obtained either from
the Network Administrator of the Hospital, or from the Needs assessment Form completed by the
Net-work Champions.
• Application Entity Title (A.E.T.) of Network printer(s). This information can be obtained from the
Printer Supplier.
• Dicom Port number of Network printer(s). This information can be obtained from the Printer Supplier.
Make sure that the printer has been configured for Senographe 2000 D. Field Engineers from the printer
company should be familiar with the required process.

5. PROCEDURE
5-1. Test the network connection to the printer
Once a network printer is connected to the network and set with an IP address, it should respond to
TCP/IP messages from another Host on the network (e.g., the AWS). Before declaring a printer on the
AWS, check the network connection:
Type in the following ping command after the prompt:
ping <network_printer_IP_address><Return>
For example: [testmam041][1] ping 192.100.9.5 <Return>
The reply should be: <Network printer IP address > is alive
Note:
When entering the printer IP address, do not enter leading zeros in any of the four numeric fields
separated by dots, e.g., do not type in 192.100.009.005, but type 192.100.9.5 instead.
The "alive" answer from the system means that the Network printer can be reached from the Acquisition
Workstation system through the network.
If the system displays "unknown host", your printer may not be correctly declared on the network.

cfg009.fm
GE Healthcare Senographe 2000 D Acquisition System

Revision 1 Service Manual 2302228-3-100

Job Card CFG 009 - Declare Printers (Filming Devices)

If the system displays "Network unreachable", you probably have given the printer an IP address incom-
patible with your Review Workstation's IP address. Check that they belong to the same network,
192.100.9.X, for example.

4 APPLICABILITY : CONFLICT WITH HOSPITAL NETWORK


Within the Senographe 2000D is a TCP/IP network that allow the ADS Computer and IDC components
to communicate internally amongst each other. By default, this internal network uses a private network of
192.168.1.0 with a netmask 255.255.255.0.

On some sites the hospital network can also be 192.168.1.0. In this case there may be IP address con-
flicts between the hospital’s and Senographe 2000D’s networks, since some of the network nodes on the
hospital network may have the same IP address as the default IP addresses assigned to the
Senographe 2000D’s components. In the case of such a conflict, the Senographe 2000D cannot be used
on the hospital network until you have changed the Senographe 2000D’s internal IP addresses.

The new Senographe 2000D’s internal IP addresses can be one of the other non-routable, private net-
works: 10.xxx.xxx.xxx, 172.16.xxx.xxx to 172.31.xxx.xxx or 192.168.xxx.xxx.
In the following example, the Senographe 2000D’s default internal IP addresses on the 192.168.1.0 net-
work have been changed to be on the 192.168.100.0 network.

Component Host name IP Address


AWS Workstation ads 192.168.100.10

IDC idc 192.168.100.20

IDC Table idc_tbl 192.168.100.21

Laptop laptop 192.168.100.29

Titan titan 192.168.100.30

The IDC Table, Laptop and Titan entries in the table above are components that no longer exist, but still
need to be configured and retained in the Senographe 2000D for legacy reasons.
Changing the Senographe 2000D’s internal IP addresses does not affect any features of the system
(e.g. service features, service desktop, calibration menus, diagnostic menus, etc.). However, it does
affect performing upgrades of the Senographe 2000D’s components (see Steering Guide for future Com-
ponent upgrades on page 184).

1. SUPPLIES
None

2. TOOLS
• True R.M.S. AC ammeter, e.g.: Fluke 8060, Fluke 87, Fluke 45. HP 3457A, Tektronix DMM 254.
• HV unit/cable adaptor, Part number 36003399.
Notice:
IMPORTANT NOTE: To ensure accurate measurement:
• For ALL Digital Multimeters: The Autorange function MUST NOT be used, as it can lead to severe
measurement errors (>40% !!).
• For ALL Digital Multimeters: The Relative Measurement function MUST NOT be used to reset to zero
the natural offset displayed when there is no current measured. The offset is automatically reset to
zero by the principle of the rms measurement.
• Measurement configurations to be used are as follows:
- Fluke 8060: used with 20 A shunt in the 200 mV AC range (shunt reference: 80J10).
- Fluke 87: no shunt, in the 10 A AC range.

3. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
CAUTION

In case of equipment breakdown or service engineer error during this calibration proce-
dure, the resulting parameter values might become so unreasonable as to render the X-ray
tube filament supply circuit unusable. This can show up as an error message during
power up, and thus inhibit use of the calibration software. If this happens, the only way to
cancel the error is to manually re-enter the default parameter values (see section 5 for
default parameter values) and switch the Senographe off and back on again before again
attempting a calibration.

4. PREREQUISITES
• If not already done, carry out any procedure(s) specified as Prerequisites for this Job Card in Job
Card CAL 000 - Calibration Interactions on page 187.

5. CALIBRATION OF HEATER CURRENT SCALE FACTOR


The objective is to determine the scale factor K and fixed offset VOF between the X-ray tube filament
current command from the software and the real filament current value obtained. Each tube track has its
own filament supply circuit, so this calibration procedure is to be performed for each of the two tracks.
DEFAULT PARAMETER VALUES ARE K = +9.450E+0 (9.45) AND VOF = +0.000E+0 (0.0).

5-1. Preparation
1. Turn the Senographe OFF.
2. Open the HV converter control signal inputs by disconnecting flat cable WG8 from generator com-
mand board 400-PL1 connector XJ7. This eliminates any possibility of energy build-up in the HV unit

8. Release the 2nd trigger button.


9. The expected results are 4.0 ±0.02 A for the first point and 5.0 ±0.02 A for the second point. If the
results are within these tolerances, the calibration for this X-ray tube track is finished. If the results
are out of tolerance, repeat the calibration procedure in section 5-2 and the check procedure in sec-
tion 5-3 for the same X-ray tube track.
Note:
Performing the calibration procedure once is normally sufficient for correct calibration.
If it is necessary to perform the calibration procedure more than once, the measured values of cur-
rent for the two points (4.0 and 5.0 A) should become increasingly accurate. If not, the procedure
is probably not being followed correctly.
10. Select SETUP/SETUP/SETUP/PARAM on the X-ray console. Note down the calculated values of
scale factor K and offset VOF. The two values can be displayed alternately by rotating the X-ray con-
sole kV dial.

CAUTION

If the value of K is less than +8.000E+0 (8.0), either the calibration procedure was done
incorrectly or there is a hardware defect.
11. Repeat the calibration and check procedures on the other tube track, if necessary.
12. Perform a ”CKSUM”, then turn the system off.
13. Reconnect flat cable WG8 to generator command board 400-PL1 connector XJ7; Remove the high
voltage cable adapter. Remember to secure the HV ring Allen screw, to insure proper ground continu-
ity.

In case of equipment breakdown or service engineer error during this calibration proce-
dure, the resulting parameter values might become so unreasonable as to render the X-ray
tube focal bias voltage supply circuit unusable. This can show up as an error message
during power up, and thus inhibit use of the calibration software. If this happens, the only
way to cancel the error is to manually re-enter the default parameter values (see section 5
for these values) and switch the Senographe off and back on again before attempting to
repeat the calibration.

4. PREREQUISITES
• If not already done, carry out any procedure(s) specified as Prerequisites for this Job Card in Job
Card CAL 000 - Calibration Interactions on page 187.

5. CALIBRATION OF X-RAY TUBE BIAS VOLTAGE SCALE FACTOR


The objective is to determine the scale factor alpha and offset beta between the X-ray tube focal bias
voltage command from the software and the real focal bias voltage value obtained. The focal bias volt-
age applied to the X-ray tube electron beam concentration device establishes the focal spot width.
DEFAULT PARAMETER VALUES ARE ALPHA = +9.389E+1 (93.89) AND BETA = +3.801E-2 (0.03801).

Card CAL 000 - Calibration Interactions on page 187.

5. CALIBRATION OF X-RAY TUBE HEATER CURRENT


The objective is to determine the X-ray tube heater current required to produce the desired X-ray tube
anode current at a given kV value.
The calibration procedure must be performed on each of the four focal size/track combinations. Four
repetitions of the calibration procedure are therefore necessary.
Three exposures are taken automatically at different kV values. Using the results, the software calcu-
lates the necessary parameters to determine the X-ray tube heater current needed to produce the
desired X-ray tube anode current for all possible kV values.

5-1. Preparation
• Place a lead cover on the top of the image receptor to protect the detector panel from excessive X-
ray doses.
• Enter installation mode on the X-ray console (change the position of installation menu enable switch
B1 on Generator CPU board 400-PL3 if the Senographe has been switched off since the last access
to install menus,)

5-2. Calibration procedure.


1. Open the work list and declare a new Patient called "X-ray Tube Heater current",
2. Select: SETUP/GENE/INSTAL/GENE/GENE/TUBE/HEATER/focal size/track/CALIB.
Perform the calibration procedure first on the LF/MO focal size/track combination, then on the others
in any order (SF/MO, LF/RH, SF/RH).

CAUTION

Before proceeding to make exposures, be sure that the detector panel has been protected
from excessive X–ray doses as instructed (by placing a lead cover on the top of the image
receptor).
3. Press the 2nd trigger button and hold it down. The messages EXPOSURE NO 1, EXPOSURE NO 2,
EXPOSURE NO 3, and CALIBRATION END appear in sequence on the X-ray console display. The
software automatically performs the three exposures and the calculations.
Note:
1.Calibration time varies according to tube temperature. The message TOO WARM appears on
the X-ray console display when tube temperature is too high for taking the next exposure. It is not
necessary to hold the 2nd trigger button down while waiting for the tube to cool. However, do not
exit the calibration menu while waiting. As soon as the TOO WARM message disappears, continue
the calibration by pressing and holding the 2nd trigger button.
2. In case of arcing, the software re-attempts the same exposure automatically.
3. The calibration procedure includes an exposure at 40 kV. If for some reason this exposure is
impossible to perform (e.g. excessive arcing), tube warm-up may be necessary.

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each of the remaining focal size/track combinations.
5. Carry out the following steps only if the warning message Limited Ich (limited heater current) is dis-
played on the X-ray console at the end of the tube current calibration. This message indicates that
one or more filament heating current values were calculated above 5.6 A (but internally limited to
5.600 A when stored in memory); the message is only a warning and is not associated with an error
code. Proceed as follows:
a. Access the Senographe installation menu to read the heater parameters with the LF/MO combi-
nation (the path is: SETUP/GENE/INSTAL/GENE/GENE/TUBE/HEATER/LF/MO/Param/I-
Value).
b. Explore the 28 kV/A combinations; note the kV values showing a current value equal to 5.600 A.
c. Repeat steps a and b for the LF/RH combination (there is a very low probability of current limita-
tion occurring in small focus).
d. Return to Application Mode (press SETUP).
e. Set the Senographe for 2-point exposure technique at 60 mAs. Make an exposure for each kV
point detected at 5.600 A (LF/MO and LF/RH). Allow at least 60 seconds between each expo-
sure.
f. Repeat steps a and b: If no more kV points are set to 5.600 A, the problem has been resolved. If
one or more points still show a current value of 5.600 A, repeat Job Card CAL 001 - Heater Cur-
rent Scale Factor. on page 191, then restart this procedure from step a above. If the problem
recurs, replace the X-ray tube

3. Perform a CKSUM and return to application mode.
4. Set up the Senographe for a manual (2-point) exposure at 30 kV and 60 mAs. For each of the four
focal size/track combination, take an exposure following a 3–second preparation time. Note the
resulting X-ray tube anode currents displayed on the X-ray console display.
Note:
A lower mAs value would decrease the measurement accuracy.
5. Expected X-ray tube anode currents for each focal size/track combination are:
LF/MO - 100 mA ± 5% (± DVM accuracy)
SF/MO - 40 mA ± 5% (± DVM accuracy)
LF/RH - 75 mA ± 5% (± DVM accuracy)
SF/RH - 40 mA ± 5% (± DVM accuracy)
6. Delete the prevously created patient called "X-ray Tube Heater current" .

4. PREREQUISITES
• If not already done, carry out any procedure(s) specified as Prerequisites for this Job Card in Job
Card CAL 000 - Calibration Interactions on page 187.
• All detector calibrations must have been cleared (select Service desktop/Calibration/Detector; then
selectClear Calibrations and perform the clear procedure as indicated on the screen).

5. CALIBRATION OF X-RAY TUBE TILT


The objective is to determine the X-ray tube angle when in its reference position. This calibration is done
by taking an exposure with the field coverage depth limited by the anode geometry (and not by the rear
collimator blade), measuring this field coverage depth, and entering this depth into the Senographe,
which can then calculate the X-ray tube angle when in its reference position.

Notice:
DO NOT perform Tube Tilt Calibration unless it is strictly necessary (e.g., after tube replace-
ment or when there is clear evidence of bad calibration parameters).
BEFORE performing Tube Tilt Calibration, clear all detector calibrations (select Service
desktop/Calibration/Detector; then selectClear Calibrations and perform the clear procedure as in-
dicated on the screen).
AFTER performing Tube Tilt Calibration, it is essential to perform the following CAL Job Cards:
- Job Card CAL 013 - Bad Pixel Calibration on page 225.
- Job Card CAL 014 - Detector Gain Calibration on page 229 (for all techniques).
- Job Card CAL 015 - Conversion Factor Measurement on page 231.
- Job Card CAL 017 - AOP Calibration on page 237.

5-1. Procedure
• Before performing this calibration, make an exposure in normal application mode; check that the red
X-ray inhibition light is not on, and no errors are reported. The exposure required by the calibration is
not made correctly if the detector temperature is out of range; the pre-exposure is aborted and

5. DESCRIPTION
The calibration function automatically calculates and displays measurements indicating the position of
the X-ray beam in relation to the detector. It uses these measurements to determine whether the calibra-
tion was successful. If so, no further action is required.
If an error is signalled, you must use the displayed values to determine the source of the problem and
make appropriate adjustments before repeating the calibration. Two checks are required:
• Collimator Blade Parallelism. Use the displayed angles to check for correct parallelism of the two
pairs of collimator blades; adjust the collimator position if necessary.
• Lateral Centering of X-ray Beam. Use the displayed values to check for correct positioning of the
beam on the detector; adjust the beam position if necessary.
Notice:
The Collimator Blade Parallelism check must be completed, and any errors corrected, before mak-
ing the Lateral Centering of X-ray Beam check.

7-2. Collimator Blade Parallelism check


Perform the instructions of this section only if an error is signalled. They must be completed, and adjust-
ments made if necessary, before continuing with the Lateral Centering check.
1. After performing the calibration measurement as described above, note the displayed angular values
(shown in the table below with references α1 through α4):
2. Calculate the differences |α1 - α2| and |α3 - α4|.
3. Check the displayed and calculated angles against the maximum values given in the table::

Actual Maximum
Angle between detector column and front blade |α1| 0.007
Angle between detector column and rear blade |α2| 0.007
Angle between detector row and left blade |α3| 0.008
Angle between detector row and right blade |α4| 0.008
Calculate the difference between α1 and α2 |α1 - α2| 0.018
Calculate the difference between α3 and α4 |α3 - α4| 0.016
4. If all values are less than the maxima given in the table, no action is necessary; the check is com-
plete, and you can proceed to check lateral centering of the X-ray beam.
5. If any value exceeds that given in the table, proceed as follows:
• If the value |α1 - α2| is greater than 0.018 radians,
or the value |α3 - α4| is greater than 0.016 radians,

before starting and during bad pixel calibration.
• The X-ray Console must be in the Medical Application menu.
• There is no medical exam opened in ADS. If an exam is opened on ADS, close it before starting the
calibration.

5. BAD PIXEL CALIBRATION


5-1. Description
A Bad Pixel is an Image Receptor cell which has a response curve very different from that of other cells
subject to the same dose, even after flat field correction. It thus provides no useful information, and
appears as a white or black pixel on the image.
Bad Pixel Calibration is a process which uses a number of acquisitions to identify such cells and store
their positions in a Bad Pixel Map. The bad pixel correction process, applied to acquired images, uses
the map to replace the level read from each bad pixel with the mean level of neighboring cells.
Notice:
It is important that the phantom used in these procedures, and all surfaces in the beam (detector,
tube, etc.) be very clean and free from imperfections, which can affect the calibration.

Job Card CAL 013 - Bad Pixel Calibration

5-2. Procedure
Notice:
Before starting the calibration, check that the Conditioner temperature has stabilized at:
- 20°C ±2°C for systems with Detector 1.0.
- 26°C ±2°C for systems with Detector 1.1.
1. Remove the Bucky and remove the compression paddle.
2. Open the Service Desktop; click the Calibration button and select Detector Calibration, after Sum-
mary display, click again on Detector.
3. Select Bad pixel and Start; follow the on-screen instructions to run the calibration.
4. The IDC automatically acquires 16 offset images (no X-rays) and computes results.
5. When the offset acquisitions and calculations are complete, you are requested to install the Flat Field
phantom (25 mm of lucite) on the Image Detector.
6. The parameters are automatically set to Rh/Rh 30kV, 11mAs. Take one acquisition for Image Quality.
The IDC computes a first image quality check. If the result is OK, the Bad Pixel Calibration can con-
tinue.
7. The parameters are automatically set to Rh/Rh; 30 kV; 56 mAs. Take four exposures. Release the
Prep and Expose buttons between each exposure. Wait a few seconds between acquisitions until the
exposures status is updated in ADS Service Desktop page.
8. You are requested to make a low dose exposure. The parameters are automatically set to Rh/Rh;
30kV; 5.6mAs.
9. You are requested to make a high dose exposure using the following parameters: Rh/Rh; 30 kV;
80mAs.
10. The IDC uses the acquired images to create the bad pixel map. This image map will be used for sub-
sequent image correction.
11. The bad pixel results are displayed on the screen in the form of a table indicating Pass or Fail for all
tested specifications.

5-3. Errors
Exposure abort during calibration
• If the X-ray exposure is aborted during bad pixel calibration, the buzzer sounds and the calibration is
terminated at the end of the current set of exposures. The calibration must be started again.
Failures detected in the Results Column at the end of Calibration
• If any failure is reported, check to see if the collimator blades are within the detector FOV. If so, cor-
rect the problem and try again.
• If an Isolated bad pixels failure is reported, check detector temperature and repeat the calibration
when the temperature is correct.
• If a Cluster or Bad Columns failure is reported, check the Flat Field phantom for imperfections such
as scratches or dust, and repeat the calibration after correction.
• When a Bad Columns failure is reported, also check that the floppy disk supplied with the detector
was correctly loaded when the Image Receptor was installed, as instructed in Job Card D/R 103 -
Image Receptor on page 547. It contains bad column information specific to the detector.

The purpose of this procedure is to verify that the Half-value layer of the X-ray beam is adequate to min-
imize patient breast dose, while not so excessive that contrast is lost in the resultant image.
The tube yield is measured for all track/filter/focal spot combinations and the values used for skin dose
computation.
For each spectrum the HVL and tube Yield are determined and stored on the Senographe, for use in the
skin dose and Mean Glandular Dose evaluation.
• The following techniques will be set automatically by the Senographe:
Configuration Technique
Mo/Mo 26kV/63mAs/LF
Mo/Rh 28kV/56mAs/LF

7. AMBIENT LIGHT ESTIMATION


Conditions for ambient light estimation should be as close as possible to normal working conditions. Ver-
ify that the cart and monitor are oriented as they will be in normal use, and verify that the ambient light is
at the level desired by the customer. If, as recommended, the room has a a light dimmer, use it to adjust
the level as required.
For more accurate measurement, a gray reference card should be used; if this is not available, the side
of the monitor rear cover may be used as a substitute, as described below.
1. Set the RC1 for use as a light meter:
a. Press # 9 on the RC1 to select the RC1 processor.
b. Enter *10 to select the light measurement function.
2. Check that the light measurement units are set to cd/m2 (this is the ISO unit of luminance, and should
be used for all procedures in this Job Card). To change the units proceed as follows:
a. Press # 9 on the RC1 to select the RC1 processor.
b. Enter *24 for direct access to the unit select function.
c. Enter + or - to toggle the selected unit between cd/m2 (cd displayed) and foot lamberts (fL dis-
played). Note that 1 fL = 3.4 cd/m2.
d. Enter *10 to return to the measurement function.
3. Position the reference surface (from which the ambient light will be measured) as closely as possible
to the normal screen posiiton:
• If the gray reference card p/n 2110360 is available, place it against (and parallel to) the monitor
screen.
• If no gray reference card is available, rotate the monitor left or right to 90°. The side of the monitor
rear cover will be used as the reference surface.
4. Position the RC1 toward the reference card or the monitor cover, at about 300 mm distance , Make
sure that no shadow (from yourself for example) can affect the measurement; record the measured
light value ML (in cd/m2) shown on the RC1.
5. Calculate the ambient light level IA (in lux): IA = π x ML/RR, where RR is the Reflection Ratio of
the surface used. The table shows RR and values for the reference card and the monitor cover.
Parameter Gray reference card Monitor cover
Reflection Ratio RR 0.18 0.75
Ambient Light IA (lux) 17.5 x ML 4.2 x ML
Measured value ML for 50 lux IA 2.8 cd/m2 12 cd/m2

Notice:
1. If the ambient light level is over 50 lux, image quality cannot be guaranteed; the customer must
be warned of the problem.
2. Screen luminance cannot exceed 275 Cd/m2 (80 fL) without loss of resolution!
6. Note the result in the table in section 11 of this Job Card.
7. Remove the gray reference card or rotate the monitor to its normal position.

5. PROCEDURE
5-1. Presentation
The object of mAs non-linearity calibration is to compensate for the non-linearity of exposure delivered
by the Generator at low mAs values, as used in AOP pre-exposure operations.
This procedure measures pre-exposure linearity deviation, and stores a correction factor in the
Senographe menu, to be applied to the mAs value of all AOP exposures.
The correction factor is automatically calculated as: MASPRE CORR = S100 / (25 x S4), where S100 and
S4 are the signals measured in the 100 mAs image and the 4 mAs image respectively.

5-2. Procedure
1. Remove the compression paddle and install the Flat Field Phantom on the Bucky.

1. SUPPLIES
None.

2. TOOLS
None.

3. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS.
• To remove power from the complete system, switch off the external circuit breaker which con-
nects the system to the hospital supply. There are two circuit breakers inside the Generator Cabi-
net, one for the Gantry and Generator, the other for the Cart and imaging equipment. Switching off
one of these breakers removes power from only part of the system.
• Remember that the UPS will continue to supply power to parts of the Cart and imaging equipment
until it is shut down.
• NEVER switch off the UPS manually (risk of data loss).
• NEVER switch off power to the Conditioner except in emergency (risk of damage to the Detector if
the correct conditions of temperature and humidity are not maintained).

WARNING
In normal operation (circuit breakers closed):
Power is present in the Generator Cabinet, MDR, and AWS Cart at all times, even after the
AWS, UPS, and other components have shut down. Cart components remain powered by
the UPS for about two to three minutes after switch off. The 230 V supply to the Condi-
tioner the UPS, and the Light Box is maintained at all times.

5. PROCEDURE
This Job Card provides check lists for confirmation of the correct operation of power up and power down
sequences, and for the steady state conditions to be expected with power on or off.
• Refer to the Power Supply Schematic diagram overleaf for an overview of power connections.
• In normal operation, system power switches are used as follows:
Power comes from the hospital supply circuit breaker to the Generator Circuit Breaker and to a circuit
breaker in the MDR (the Main Distribution Rack; at the top of the Generator Cabinet), in parallel.
Both circuit breakers are normally left ON.
All subsystem power switches (items in the Cart, Conditioner, etc.) are normally left ON.
The system is normally switched ON using the ON switch (I) on the X-ray Console.
The system is normally switched OFF by clicking the System Off button in the AWS Browser
window. When switching off, wait for complete system and UPS shut down (about two to three min-
utes).
The Gantry and Generator can be switched OFF without affecting components in the AWS Cart by
pressing the power-off on the X-ray console.

5. UPS FUNCTION CHECK


The LEDs and control buttons of the UPS front panel may be observed and accessed through the plexi-
glass panel at the front of the AWS Cart.

F - REPLACE BATTERY OFF BUTTON

Notice:
If you intend to re-calibrate the battery capacity indicator (procedure described below), you should
do this before the function check, to avoid an additional delay while the battery recharges.
Proceed as follows to carry out the function check:
1. With the system powered on as normal, observe the state of the front panel LEDs:
a. The On Line LED (B) should be lit.
b. If any of the remaining five status LEDs (A, C, D, E, F, G) are lit, the cause should be investigated.
c. The Load Indicator LEDs indicate the power being drawn from the UPS as a percentage of the
rated capacity. Normally, four LEDs or less should be lit.
d. The Charge/Line Voltage LEDs indicate the current state of battery charge. With all five LEDs lit,
the battery is fully charged. When the lowest LED flashes, the battery can supply less than two
minutes of run time; you must wait for the battery to recharge before using the system.

2. Start a UPS self test; press and hold the ON/TEST button until a beep is heard and the On Line LED
(B) flashes.
During the test the UPS briefly supplies the load from the battery; the On Battery LED (E) is lit. If
the test passes, the On Battery LED goes out and the On Line LED (B) again lights steadily.
If the test fails, the UPS returns to on-line status, but the Replace Battery LED (F) is lit. The
cause should be investigated.
3. To check the input voltage (hospital supply), press and hold the ON/TEST button for at least four sec-
onds (this will start a self test as above):
The Charge/Line Voltage LEDs now indicate the input voltage status; normally two, three, or four
LEDs should light.
If all five LEDs are lit, the input is more than 247 V; if one LED is lit or no LEDs are lit, the input is less
than 213 V.

6. BATTERY CAPACITY RE-CALIBRATION


About once a year, it may be desirable to re-calibrate the battery capacity indicator.
The procedure, including battery recharge, takes about one hour
Notice:
It may not be possible to start this procedure immediately after the function check described above,
because it requires the battery charge to be 100% of capacity.
Proceed as follows:
1. From the Service Desktop, click the Diagnostics button, then the UPS button.
2. To prevent the system from being shut down during the calibration process, select Configuration/
Event Actions, and then the UPS Battery is Discharged event; remove the check mark from the Shut-
down Server box.
3. Note that the calibration process will not start if the battery charge is less than 100%. To display Bat-
tery Capacity (in place of Run Time Remaining), select Configuration/Monitoring Preferences, and
select the parameter to be displayed in the left hand graphical bar of the PowerChute interface.
4. Start the calibration process by selecting Diagnostics/Initiate run Time Calibration.
5. Once started, the calibration process continues until battery capacity falls to 25% (the time from
100% to 25% is about 10 minutes).
With the AWS system powered off and power applied to the UPS, the battery takes 45-60 minutes to
recharge.
6. Before returning the system to normal operation, you must ensure that it will be shut down if battery
capacity is low:
- EITHER: In the PowerChute interface menu, select Configuration/Event Actions, and select the
UPS Battery is Discharged event; click the Shutdown Server box to restore the check mark.
- OR: Log in as root in a command window; execute the command ups stop, then ups start.

5. GENERATOR TESTING
The objective is to check quickly the generator kV, mA and mAs calibrations, which have already been
done in the factory.

5-1. Set up generator for testing.


1. Configure the Senographe for the following exposure:
- Mode manual (2-point)
- Focal spot: large
- Track: Mo
- Filter: Mo
- mAs: 60 (lower mAs value may give inaccurate measurements)
- HV: 22 kV
2. Activate display of parameters following an exposure by selecting SETUP/GENE/INSTAL/GENE/
CONFIG/DISP/YES on the X-ray console (see Job Card CFG 001 - The X-ray Console on page 121).
Return to application mode.
3. Connect the digital mAs meter to kV mA board 701-PL1 (on HV tank unit 701) between terminals
MES_MA_POS and MES_MA_NEG. Disconnect the jumper that is normally between these same
two terminals.
4. Set the mAs meter to current (mA) measurement.
5. Protect the detector with 2.5 cm of plexiglass.
6. Open New Patient in the Browser, and take 5 exposures at approximately 20 second intervals, incre-
menting the HV by 2 kV each time (i.e., 22 - 24 - 26 - 28 - 30 kV).
7. Take 5 more exposures at the same interval, leaving the HV set at 30 kV.

8. The X-ray tube current value displayed on the X-ray console (Idisplay) must be 100 mA ± 5 mA AND
should agree with the value read on the mAs meter (Imeasure) ± 5%.
If Idisplay is not equal to Imeasure then perform Job Card CAL 004 - X-Ray Tube mA Measurement on
page 203, followed by Job Card CAL 003 - X-Ray Tube Heater Current on page 199.
9. Take 2 exposures at 40 kV and 50 mAs at an interval of 30 seconds. No arcing should be detected. If
arcing is detected, perform the procedure given in Job Card IST 014 - Automatic X-ray Tube Warm-
Up on page 93.
10. Reconfigure the Senographe to 30 kV and 25 mAs. Take one exposure for each of the three following
focal spot/track combinations and verify the expected X-ray tube current reading on the X-ray con-
sole display:
SMALL FOCAL SPOT/MO TRACK => I = 40 mA ± 2 mA
SMALL FOCAL SPOT/RH TRACK => I = 40 mA ± 2 mA
LARGE FOCAL SPOT/RH TRACK => I = 75 mA ± 4 mA
11. Disconnect the mAs meter from the Senographe and reconnect the jumper on kV mA board 701-
PL1.
12. Verify kVp using a non-invasive kVp meter and, if needed, perform Job Card CAL 005 - Calibration of
kV Scale Factor on page 205. This step may be mandatory, when required by local regulations.

6. GANTRY TESTING
The objective is to quickly check the basic functions of the gantry.
Note that the following functions are tested by the software during each power-up sequence:
- Filter holder rotation
- Lateral, front and rear collimator blade movement
- X-ray tube housing movement
- Compression paddle movement to home position
- Column movement limit stops
- Coherency between focal spot size, magnification and X-ray tube housing angulation
- Grid movement
- Generator-gantry communications link
- Gantry CPU board

6-1. Check gantry readout.


Immediately following the power-up sequence, the gantry readout should indicate the X-ray format.

6-2. Check column movement.


1. With the compression paddle out of compression, check that all four sets of column up/down control
buttons are operational (check each button for up and down movement of column).
2. Move column to its upper and lower limits. Optical sensors should stop movement. If optical sensors
have failed, mechanical safety stops halt movement. Total one-way movement time (going either up
or down) between upper and lower limits should be 16 ±2 seconds. This time includes initial acceler-
ation, which lasts 3 seconds.

6-3. Check arm rotation.


1. With the compression paddle out of compression, check that all four arm rotation control buttons are
operational (check each button for release and re-locking of arm rotation).

2. Rotate arm through its full range of ±180°. Check in several positions that electro-brake is sufficient,
by manual action on the handles.
3. Check alignment of angle markings at 0°.

6-4. Check light centering device.


Press one of the light centering device activation buttons. The light centering device should light for 30
seconds.

6-5. Check format control.


Check that repeated pressing of each of the two format control pushbuttons, gives the sequence:
1) light centering device lights; 2) first format reduction; 3) second format reduction; 4) full format.

6-6. Check magnification sensors.


1. With magnification device removed, the gantry readout should show a magnification of 1.0.
2. Install the magnification device into the lower, middle and upper holes successively. The gantry read-
out should show a magnification of 1.5, 1.8, and 1.9, respectively.

6-7. Check tube housing arm detents.


1. Activate the tube housing arm locking lever and rotate the tube housing arm to its ± 15° and ± 27°
detents. When tube housing arm is locked in each of these four positions, the error message Incor-
rect X_Ray Incidence should appear on the X-ray console display.
2. Rotate the tube housing arm so that it is "floating" between detents. After five seconds, the error mes-
sage Tube Housing Arm Unlocked should appear on the X-ray console display and Arm Unlocked
should appear on the gantry readout.

6-8. Check paddle compression.


1. Verify that both sets of compression/decompression pedals and the manual compression knobs
located on the paddle holder all function correctly (i.e., the paddle moves up or down in response to
each command).
2. Use the mammo compression scale placed between the detector and the compression paddle to
check calibration of the compression force display on the gantry readout. Measure one point at 5 daN
and one point at 15 daN. The value on the gantry readout must agree within ±1 daN. If it does not,
perform Job Card CAL 006 - Calibration of Compression Force Detector on page 209.
Note:
If the recommended compression measurement tool is not available, this verification can be done
by lowering the paddle close to the top surface of the cassette holder, installing the magnification
device in the upper pair of holes, and connecting a spring dynamometer (calibrated from 0 to
15 kg) between the compression paddle and the magnification device.

6-9. Check breast thickness measurement.


1. Install the bucky and place 10 mm of plexiglass in the center of the bucky.
2. Lower the compression paddle into contact with the plexiglass.
3. Slowly increase compression force on the plexiglass while watching the breast thickness display on
the gantry readout. The displayed value should remain in the range 10 mm ±3 mm for any value of
compression force (as displayed on the gantry readout) between 5 and 15 daN.
4. Replace 10 mm of plexiglass with 50 mm of plexiglass and repeat the above check. Now the dis-
played value should remain in the range 50 mm ±3 mm for any value of compression force (as dis-
played on the gantry readout) between 5 and 15 daN.
5. If either or both of the above checks does not give a satisfactory result, perform Job Card CAL 007 -
Calibration of Breast Thickness Measurement on page 211.

6-10. Check grid presence sensor.


• Select ARM/VALID/INSTAL/CALIB/GRID/CALIB on the X-ray console.
- With the bucky present, the reponse should be CALIBRATION OK .
- If the bucky is not present or is not recognized, the response is GRID ABSENT.

6-11. Check emergency stop buttons.


Pressing either of the emergency stop buttons (located on either side of the gantry column base) should
result in a complete power-down of the generator and gantry (but not the AWS Cart).

1. SUPPLIES
• None

2. TOOLS
• Flat field phantom (25 mm lucite).
• ACR standard phantom (16 cells Nuclear Associates 18-220 or RMI-156).

3. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS.
• These procedures produce X-rays. Be sure to take appropriate precautions.

4. PREREQUISITES
• The system must have been correctly installed and calibrated.

5. FLATFIELD TESTS
5-1. Objective
The flatfield test measures the ability of the detector to reproduce the image of a flat and homogeneous
phantom.
The ideal response of the detector is a uniform image with no large or small defects, with no pixel having
a signal much higher or much weaker than its neighbours, and with a uniform signal-to-noise ratio. The
quantities to look for are thus:
- Brightness uniformity: the magnitude of low frequency structures (large shapes).
- High frequency modulation: the magnitude of high frequency structures (small defects).
- Number and density of bad pixels: the number of pixels having signals significantly different
from those of their neighboors (new bad pixels appeared since the latest bad pixel calibration),
and the density of these bad pixels.
- Signal-to-noise ratio uniformity: the variation of signal-to-noise ratio over the image.
A test failure indicates incorrect test conditions (phantom position, cleanliness), or an artifact causing
inconsistency between the current image and the associated gain map. Such an inconsistency means
that either the gain calibration needs to be updated, or the current image contains a defect which must
be identified (see section 7). Possible sources of artifacts include the tube output window, the mirror, the
Molybdnenum filter, the collimator blades, and the detector.

5-2. Method
The flatfield image is analyzed by measuring the mean
signal level, the noise, and the number of new bad pix-
Measurements made i
els in a moving analysis box (a 20 mm x 20 mm region a moving analysis box
of interest scanning the flatfield image with a 10 mm
overlap). The total number of new bad pixels is
summed over the whole image.
The following checks are performed:
- Brightness uniformity (BNU): compute maximum deviation of the mean signals measured in
each ROI.
- High frequency modulation (HFM): measure the minimum signal–to–noise from all ROIs
- New bad pixels: detect and count all bad pixels in the whole image
- New bad ROIs: count number of regions of interest containing more than 2 bad pixels
- Signal–to–noise ratio (SNR) uniformity: compute maximum deviation of the SNR measured in
each ROI.

6. PROCEDURE
1. From the Browser, click on the QAP button, then select Flat Field Test.
2. Follow the on–screen instructions. You are asked to:
e. Remove the bucky or breast holder and the compression paddle, and to place the flatfield phan-
tom on the image receptor.
f. Verify using the light beam that the collimator is in full field of view.
g. Verify that the tube arm angle is 0 degrees.
h. Make two exposures using the parameters set automatically (Large focal spot; Mo/Mo; 26 kV; 200
mAs).
3. Use the middle-button mouse function to adjust the image for optimum viewing conditions. Sug-
gested starting values are WC = 3000 and WL =4500.
4. The system calculates and displays test results in a format similar to that shown below. The LSL and
USL columns show the minimum acceptable values (Lower Specification Limit) and the maximum
acceptable values (Upper Specification Limit) for each test.

adjusting the contrast such that window width is less
than 200. If collimator blades are visible at the bor-
ders, check tube tilt, collimator centering, parallelism
and format calibrations

7-3-1. Typical causes are:
1. Dust is present on the flatfield phantom or the
image receptor; ensure that the phantom and the
image receptor are completely clean and run the
test again.
2. The flatfield phantom contains inclusions or is
scratched;
- Run the flatfield test, select bad pixel graphi-
cal window, locate the bad ROIs or bad pix-
els.
- Move the phantom, run the flatfield test again
and note whether the bad ROIs or pixels have
moved.
If you have difficulty in observing a moving spot, repeat the test in application mode. After making
an exposure, adjust the viewing contrast to make the spot visible. Then move the phantom
slightly, make a second exposure, and switch the display from one image to the other to observe
any movement in the spot of interest.
If the bad pixels move, there are some inclusions inside the phantom. Obtain a new phantom and
run the test again.

- Check that there is no visible bad row or bad col- bad column
umn in the flatfield image displayed in the IQ tool
viewer (use the mouse middle button to adjust con-
trast and brightness such that window width WW is
less than 200). If necessary, take an image in the
Medical Application and use the AWS display tools.
- If there is a distinct bad row or a bad column
(exactly parallel to the detector matrix), or a distinct
cluster, calibrate bad pixels.
If the bad row, bad column, or cluster is detected in
the bad pixel calibration and is above the Upper Specification Limit, the detector must be
changed. If not, calibrate gain in the MoMo/no grid configuration, and run the test again.
If gain calibration succesfully corrects bad rows or columns, use the ACR phantom to check the
correction. Place the ACR phantom so as to partially cover the suspect rows or columns (e.g., to
the left or top of the detector) and make an acquisition at MoMo/26 kV/100 mAs/no grid, so that
the detector is saturated outside the area of the phantom. Verify in the raw image that the rows or
columns do not appear again in the phantom area. If they do appear, contact your OLC; it is likely
that the detector must be changed.

7-3-2. Other possible causes are :


1. During the last gain calibration, dust was present (on the flatfield phantom, image receptor, mirror, or
filter), or the flatfield phantom contained inclusions or scratches; verify that the bad pixels do not
move with the phantom and that they persist after careful cleaning of phantom, image receptor, mir-
ror, and Mo filter. Calibrate gain in the MoMo/no grid configuration, move the phantom slightly, and
run the test again.
2. Dust is present on the light beam alignment mirror or on the Mo filter; clean the mirror and Mo filter
without direct contact and run the test again.
3. Metallic particles have been deposited on the tube output window; tilt and move the tube and verify in
the image or in the bad pixel graphical window that the bad pixels have moved after the tube move-
ment. If you are sure that particles are present on the tube output window, change the tube and per-
form the resulting calibrations. before repeating the test.

5-1. ACR Phantom
The phantom used in this procedure is a block of plexiglass containing 16 cells. Each cell simulates an
anatomical structure which may be found in breast tissue.
The plexiglass gives attenuation equivalent to a breast of average density compressed to a thickness of
45 mm.
Starting from the top left hand corner, as shown in the illustration,
the cells are of three types:
1. Fibres.
Six cells represent fibrous calcifications; they contain fibers
with sections from 1.56 mm to 0.40 mm.
2. Specks (Calcifications).
Five cells represent groups of specks or micro–calcifications,
with sizes from 0.54 mm to 0.16 mm.
3. Masses.
Five cells represent tumors or masses, with sizes from 2 mm
to 0.25 mm; each has a different attenuation.

Job Card VF 009 - Image Acquisition and ACR Score

6. PROCEDURE
1. Install the Bucky, with compression paddle.
2. Place the ACR phantom on the Bucky, against the chest wall side and laterally centered.
3. Lightly compress the phantom with the compression paddle.
4. Verify that the collimator is in full FOV and that the tube arm angle is 0 degrees.
5. Enter the Phantom IQ test. From the Browser, select: Tools Menu/Service Desktop/Image Quality/
New Acquisition/Phantom IQ.
6. The system applies suitable parameters. Make an exposure and display the image.
7. The image is displayed with standard parameters which may need adjusting for your system. Press
the right mouse button to display a two-item menu which allows you to select the middle button func-
tion. Use it either to control brightness and contrast (WL changes with vertical movement and WW
changes with horizontal movement) or to obtain the magnifying glass function. As a rough guide, it is
suggested that the contrast should be adjusted to obtain an on-screen displayed value for WW of
less than 200 for good viewing.
8. Obtain the best viewing conditions for an accurate assessment of the score (if necessary complete
the test and repeat it with the phantom in a better position) and observe the 16 cells in the phantom
image. Note the ACR score (1, 0.5, or 0, as described in the Test Description above) for each cell,
and total the scores for each type of cell (fibers, masses, speck groups).
9. A group of three on-screen sliders are displayed at the top right of the screen.For each type of cell,
move the on-screen slider (with the cursor on the slider, press and hold the mouse button while mov-
ing the mouse) until the correct score is displayed. Then click on OK to enter the score into the sys-
tem.
10. The results of the test are displayed in a format similar to that shown below. The LSL and USL col-
umns show the minimum acceptable score (Lower Specification Limit) and the maximum score
(Upper Specification Limit) for each item. The figures given here in the Measurement and Status col-
umns are for example only.
Test Measurement LSL USL Status
Masses 4.00 3.00 5.00 Passed
Speck groups 2.50 3.00 5.00 Failed
Fibers 5.00 4.00 6.00 Passed
Score 11.50 11.00 16.00 Passed
11. The test is successful if the total score is 11 or more, with scores for masses of at least 3, for speck
groups of at least 3, and for fibers of at least 4.
In the example shown the total score is 11.5, but the test fails because the speck group score is less
than 3.
12. If the test fails, repeat the flatfield test and then try again. If the flatfield test passes successfully but
the ACR Score test fails, the cause must be identified and corrected before further patient examina-
tions are made.

2. TOOLS
• Set of acrylic plates (PMMA) (minimum size 20 cm x 20 cm) allowing thicknesses of 25 mm, 40
mm and 60 mm to be used, with a tolerance of ±0.1 mm.

3. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS.
• Take all normal precautions when operating with X–rays.

4. PREREQUISITES
• The system must have been correctly installed and completely calibrated.
• Breast thickness calibration must have been carefully checked in contact mode.

5. TEST DESCRIPTION
The tests described here are designed to check the following aspects of system operation:
• Selection of parameters in AOP (Automatic Optimization of Parameters) mode.
• The level of SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) in images acquired in AOP mode.

6. PROCEDURE
Notice:
To avoid false results, the acrylic plates used must be clean and free from scratches.
1. Create an AOP patient file by selecting New Patient on the Browser; complete the Medical Procedure
Card as required, with AOP as the patient name.
2. Install the bucky on the image receptor and select Large field of view.
3. Carry out the following procedure three times, with different thicknesses of acrylic in the field of
view (25, 40, and 60 mm). The table below shows the values expected for each thickness:
a. Place acrylic plates of the chosen thickness on the bucky.
b. Apply 5daN compression to the plates
c. Check that the breast thickness indicated on the X-ray console Display is equal to the expected
value (25, 40, or 60 mm) ±2 mm.
d. Select the AOP STD mode and make an exposure.
e. Record the exposure parameters (track/filter/kV/mAs) selected.

(mm)
25 Mo/Mo 20 - 60 27
40 Mo/Rh 35 - 90 28
60 Rh/Rh 35 - 90 32
4. On the AWS, close the exam, then open the three raw images for review.
5. For each of the three images in turn:
- Use the ellipse ROI tool (use the default size) to measure the mean value (MV)and standard devi-
ation (sd) of the image, in the region close to the chest wall and laterally centered.
- Calculate the SNR as MV/sd. The value of SNR should exceed 50.
Note that a calculator can be displayed on the AWS screen by obtaining the root menu (in the
background) and selecting calculator. Use the Front key to hide/display the calculator.

7. COMPLETION
• The check is successful if the exposure parameters are within the limits shown in the table above,
and if all SNR values exceed 50.
• If the check fails because of incorrect track/filter or kV selection, carry out AOP calibration in contact
mode with grid, and repeat the check.
• If the check fails because of incorrect mAs or SNR values, carry out Conversion Factor and HVL/
Yield calibrations, and repeat the check.

Job Card EP 001 - Detector protection during system shutdown Chapter 7

1. HOSPITAL/SYSTEM SHUTDOWN
• The Digital Detector used in the Senographe 2000 D system contains components which are
extremely sensitive to variations of temperature and humidity.
Any large or long term variation in temperature or humidity may cause permanent damage to the
detector.
In normal operation, including normal shut-down, the detector is protected from damage by the Con-
ditioner, which controls the temperature and internal humidity of the detector within close limits.
• If the system must be completely shut down for any reason, for example if the hospital depart-
ment is closed for a vacation period, special precautions must be taken to avoid damage to
the detector.

2. DETECTOR PROTECTION DURING SHUTDOWN


There are two possible methods of protecting the detector if the normal system power must be switched
off during a prolonged shutdown:
• Connect the Conditioner to a normal power outlet and leave it switched on. This ensures
that power is returned after any brief power outages (due to storms, etc.). If the Generator system
is left on standby, it does not start up automatically after a power outage, and power is switched
off permanently
• Disconnect and drain the cooling circuit as much as possible. Ensure that no coolant is left
in the Detector or in the Conditioner. Use a syringe or similar tool if necessary.
Notice:
When the Detector is not protected by connection to a functional Conditioner, the following
storage conditions must be respected:
Humidity: 10% min., 50% max. (up to 95% R.H. can be tolerated for less than two weeks).
Temperature: +10°C (50°F) min. to +25°C (77°F)max.
(-10°C (14°F) min. to +50°C (122°F) max. for less than one day).
Atmospheric pressure: 500 hPa min., 1060 hPa max.

Scenario PM 001 - Planned Maintenance Steering Guide

Scenario PM 001 - Planned Maintenance Steering Guide Chapter 8

1 CONTEXT
This scenario is to be used in planning and performing planned maintenance visits (PM visits).
• Actions required in preparation for each PM visit are described in section 2 Actions prior to PM visit.
• Actions to be carried out on-site during each PM visit are listed in the tables in sections 4 PM Task
Schedule on page 306.
The tables list each of the recommended on-site planned maintenance tasks. For each task, they
give the recommended frequency (Int.; interval between tasks in months) and the expected duration
(Drn.; time in minutes)
• PM visits should be made at six-monthly intervals. The tables show a suggested sequence of tasks to
be performed at successive PM visits, in columns numbered from1 through 12. For each visit an "X"
in the column indicates that the corresponding task should be performed.
• The total time required for each PM visit depends upon the tasks scheduled and any additional work,
such as FRU replacements, calibrations, etc., found to be required. The schedules proposed take
account of the estimated time for each task, so as to balance the times required for each visit.
• The sums of estimated times for tasks specified at each visit are shown here:

3. SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
• When filling or topping up the Conditioner, take great care to keep coolant away from the vents, the
ON/OFF switch and the power cord connection. Do not immerse the Conditioner in any liquid.
• Dispose of old and surplus coolant with care as described in the section Coolant Disposal; refer to
the Caution below.

CAUTION

• Before adding coolant to the Conditioner, always switch OFF the Generator and MDR cir-
cuit breakers in the Generator Cabinet. Switch on the MDR breaker only as instructed.
• Always use a funnel when adding coolant to the Conditioner.
• Always wear goggles when working with the coolant.
• The coolant provided for filling the Conditioner circuit is water protected by a fungicide.
In its undiluted form this fungicide is toxic, but in the solution provided it is very dilute,
and is not dangerous to health if handled correctly. Waste solution in the concentration
used will not cause pollution if disposed of in a non-sensitive environment.
• However, when handling the solution you should treat it with care; avoid unnecessary
contact and wear goggles. See below for First Aid advice.
First Aid in case of contact with Conditioner coolant:
Immediately flush eyes or skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
If coolant contacts the eye, call a physician immediately.
If coolant is swallowed, drink one to two glasses of water or milk. Avoid alcohol. Call a physician
immediately.
Remove and wash contaminated clothing before reuse

Job Card ERR 001 - IDC Error Messages Chapter 9

1. HOW TO VIEW THE ERROR LOG


Errors reported by the IDC diagnostic routines are recorded in a common system error log which also
contains error messages generated by the AWS and Gantry/Generator applications.
To view the error log content, right click on the AWS screen background; select Service Tools/Service
Desktop/Error Log from the drop-down menu.
The most recent error code generated by the IDC can also be viewed on the display on the rear of the
IDC computer.

2. IDC DIAGNOSTICS
Each time that the IDC sub-system is booted (powered up or reset), it carries out a series of diagnostic
self-tests, first under the control of the BIOS, then under software control. As each test is performed, a
corresponding code is displayed on the four-digit green LCD panel at the rear of the IDC unit.

2-1. BIOS Diagnostic Display


While the BIOS tests are running, the LCD displays two blank digits followed a two-digit code corre-
sponding to the current test. If a test detects an error or fails to complete, the tests are halted and the
code of the failing test remains displayed.

2-2. Software Diagnostic Display


• Three sets of software diagnostics are carried out. While these test are running, the display shows
X000, where X may be 1, 2, or 3.
• If all tests are completed without failure, the display shows FFFF.
• If a test fails, the display shows a code in the form XXFF for two seconds. XX is a code correspond-
ing to the failing test. The tests then continue.
• On completion of the tests after a failure occurs, the display shows F0FF.

3. ERROR DETECTION
• If the IDC halts with a display in the format FFFF, all power-up tests have passed without failure.
• If the IDC halts with a display in the format --XX, where XX can be any number, a BIOS test has
failed. If the problem occurs again after reset, the recommended action is to change the IDC unit.
• If the IDC halts with a display in the format F0FF, a software test has failed. Reset the IDC and watch
the LCD display.
If the failure is repeated, a code XXFF is displayed for two seconds. Note the error code XX.
Table 1 gives a list of IDC diagnostic error codes, with recommended sequences of actions.
