Medical Device Identifier:
ARIA RT Chart Application v8.0 and 8.1
Reason of Field Safety Corrective Action:
If the user selects the “Convert to Setup Field” option when using the RT Chart function in ARIA (versions 8.0 and 8.1), the Dynamic Multi Leaf Collimator (DMLC) plan components are removed in order to create an open collimator for field light setup. In the reported case (CP-03045 from the USA) a user selected this option in error and then converted the Set-up field back to a Treatment field. The DMLC was then missing from the resultant treatment field. If this error is not detected prior to patient treatment an open field treatment can result.
The manufacturer has issued a FSN to warn users of this problem and how to avoid it.
