  • Reason
    It has been noted that upon completion of a 6d workflow, the hexapod evo module may be in a tilted state, if it is moved to the position used for 3d (non-iguide) treatments. in a subsequent 3d workflow, a possible incorrect position of the patient, due to a tilt of the hexapod, may be difficult to detect without verification (e.G. imaging). this description is not relevant for an iguide workflow (6d). the problem occurs only when you switch from a 6d to a 3d workflow without iguide.
