When an eXam Plan is selected, some of the unprotected raw data sets
are deleted. Therefore, protect important raw data. In addition, back up
such data to a DVD-RAM or the server as required.
The eXam Plan selection area consists of three displays: "TOSHIBA
Protocol", "Protocol Selection", and "Anatomical Selection".

TOSHIBA Protocol
When [TOSHIBA Protocol] is selected, the "region selection window" is
displayed on the left and the "eXam Plan selection window" is displayed
on the right.
The region selection window is used to select the region to be scanned.
When a region is selected, eXam Plans that are available for the
selected region are displayed in the eXam Plan selection window.
Select the desired Plan from among the displayed Plans by clicking it.
At the top of the region selection window, there are three tags for eXam
Plans according to the type of patient to be scanned (Adult, Child, and
Trauma).
When a child is to be scanned, select an eXam Plan intended for
children to minimize patient exposure.
In addition, Toshiba's recommended scan protocols are preset as eXam
Plans for various anatomical regions. These protocols should be
employed based on the clinical judgment of a healthcare professional
concerning their suitability for the clinical objective.

Quick Reference Guide


16
No. 2B201-647EN*C

The scan couch position is the position (center of several slices acquired by a
single scan) projected by the internal projector.
The relative couch position is the couch position displayed assuming that the
center position of the slices used to generate the reconstructed image has
moved to the position projected by the internal projector.
Example: When the center position of the slices used to generate the
reconstructed image is 12 mm away from the scan couch position
toward the patient couch, the relative couch position value is 12
mm less than the scan couch position.

(2) Row used for reconstruction

The row (starting from the first row) of the detector used for displaying the
current image is displayed in hexadecimal notation.

(3) Enlargement center position

The coordinates (on the original image) corresponding to the center position
of the enlarged image are displayed.

If the center position of the currently displayed image coincides with that of
NOTE the original image, the coordinates corresponding to the center position of
the enlarged image are not displayed. (Original images are images for which
the enlargement ratio is 1.0 and the reconstruction center is (256,256).)

(4) Image slice thickness/scan slice thickness

The image slice thickness is the slice thickness of the reconstructed image
being displayed.
The scan slice thickness is the slice thickness when the scan conditions are
set.

(5) Pitch factor

The pitch factor can be calculated as follows.

Pitch factor = d/(NT)

d : Couch-top movement stroke per gantry rotation


N : Number of slices to be acquired
T : Scan slice thickness
Helical pitch : Index indicating the couch-top movement stroke relative to the
slice thickness for a single row.
NOTE
Pitch factor : Index indicating the couch-top movement stroke relative to the
X-ray beam width.

(6) Partial scan image

"HLF-32", for example, designates an image reconstructed only using the


second portion of the entire data (acquired by one scan and divided into 3
portions).

The helical pitch is defined by the following formula:


(Couch-top movement stroke per gantry rotation (mm))/(Scan slice thickness
(mm))

A.7 Keyboard

CAUTION
Do not use the keyboard continuously for prolonged periods of time.
Continuous use of the keyboard for a prolonged period of time may
result in nervous dysfunction of the hand or arm.

Prolonged use of the keyboard may result in repetitive stress injury of the
hand or arm, depending on the individual. Be careful to observe local
regulations concerning labor safety/health at each institution to avoid
extended, uninterrupted use of the keyboard.

Keyboard

The names and functions of the parts of the keyboard are described below.

<1> Power lamp


This lamp is lit when the system power is ON.
<2> Emergency stop button
Used to stop the system immediately in the case of an emergency.

<3> Movement (gantry/couch) key


Used to perform gantry tilting and couch-top horizontal movement using the
interactive screen. After entering the target position on the interactive screen,
press this key to execute the movement.
<4> Talk key
Used to talk to the patient in the scan room. This key is active only while it is
held down.
When the key is held down during output of a prescan voice message (or during
the delay period), the prescan voice message is canceled and the operator can
talk to the patient in the scan room. Scanning is not started while the key is held
down. If the end of the delay period has passed, scanning is started immediately
after the key is released. If the operator needs to give the patient instructions
immediately before scanning (for example, if patient movement is too much or
patient breath control is insufficient), this key makes it possible to postpone the
start of scanning until the instructions are completed.
Note that once X-ray exposure is started, pressing this key does not stop the
scan. X-ray exposure is continued till the end of the scan even if the key is held
down.
<5> Exposure lamp
This lamp lights during X-ray exposure.
<6> Scan start key
The key lights when the system is ready for scanning.
When this key is pressed while the lamp is lit, scanning starts.
Blinking of the lamp indicates that the system is waiting for couch-top preparatory
movement before scanoscopy or helical scanning. When the scan start key is
pressed in this status, couch-top preparatory movement (couch-top movement in
the direction opposite that for scanoscopy or helical scanning) starts. When
preparatory movement is completed and the system is ready to perform scanning,
the key lights.

<7> Scan interruption (abort) key


This key is lit while scanning is performed (including the scan preparation time).
To interrupt scanning, press this key.

<8> Speaker volume control


Used to control the volume of sounds in the scan room acquired using the
microphone mounted on the gantry.

<9> Microphone volume control


Used to control the volume for communication with the scan room through the
microphone when the talk key is pressed.

<10> Window level adjustment knob


Used to change the center value (WL: window level) within the CT number range
for image display.

<11> Window width adjustment knob


Used to change the width (WW: window width) of the CT number range for image
display.

<12> Window 1 key


Displays the image with preset parameter 1.
When the key is lit, this parameter is selected.

When the key is lit, this parameter is selected.

<14> Window 3 key


Displays the image with preset parameter 3.
When the key is lit, this parameter is selected.

<15> Window save key


The currently displayed window parameter is saved as preset parameter 3. Even
if this key is pressed, the window parameter is not saved unless the image is
updated.
<16> Auto view (reconstructed image automatic display) key
When this key is pressed, the lamp of this key lights and the system enters auto
view mode.
When this key is pressed a second time, the lamp of this key goes out and auto
view mode is released.
In auto view mode, newly acquired images are automatically displayed after
scanning, reconstruction retry, or online transfer (option).
<17> Previous patient key
When this key is pressed while an image is displayed on the screen, the first
image in the study immediately prior to the current study is displayed.

<18> Next patient key


When this key is pressed while an image is displayed on the screen, the first
image in the study immediately following the current study is displayed.

<19> Previous series key


When this key is pressed while an image is displayed on the screen, the image in
the series immediately prior to the current series is displayed.

<20> Next series key


When this key is pressed while an image is displayed on the screen, the image in
the series immediately following the current series is displayed.

<21> Previous image key


When this key is pressed while an image is displayed on the screen, the image
immediately before the current image in the same study is displayed. If the
current image is the first image in the study, the last image of the same study is
displayed.
<22> Quick/Previous image key
When this key is held down, the previous images are displayed consecutively at
high speed.

<23> Next image key


When this key is pressed while an image is displayed on the screen, the image
immediately after the current image in the same study is displayed. If the current
image is the last image in the study, the first image of the same study is
displayed.

<24> Quick/Next image key

When this key is held down, the next images are displayed consecutively at high
speed.
