  • Reason
    The manufacturer found that when using several isocenters (several radiation therapy goals) within one manipulation, the exactrac patient positioning and verification system with the exactrac v6.0.3 software version can position the patient in the wrong isocenter position. brainlab asks end users to avoid using multiple isocenters during treatment. if treatment with several isocenters cannot be avoided, it is necessary to close the exactrac program after treatment of the patient using one isocenter and restart the treatment plan before choosing the next isocentre. to solve this problem, brainlab is planning to release a software update.
