Chapter 2Selenia Acquisition Workstation Q and A What are the AEC modes I have available for use?

What are the AEC modes I have available for use?


There are three AEC modes: Auto-Time, Auto-kV, and Auto-Filter. These modes allow various levels of user control of the Automatic Exposure Control techniques: AEC Modes AEC Mode Auto-Time Auto-kV Filter Parameter User selected Determined from compression thickness and table Determined from compression thickness and table kV Parameter User selected Determined from compression thickness and look-up table Determined from compression thickness and look-up table mAs Parameter Determined from a scout exposure Determined from a scout exposure Determined from a scout exposure

Auto-Filter

When the user selects the Auto-kV or Auto-Filter modes, the Filter and kV values are chosen by using the compressed breast thickness as an index into a kV/filter look-up table.

What exactly is TEC (Tissue Exposure Control)?


Tissue exposure control (TEC) exposure mode is designed to take advantage of the imaging characteristics of the Selenia FFDM system, which has significantly higher detective quantum efficiency and wider exposure latitude compared to a conventional screen-film mammography system. When the TEC exposure mode is enabled, the Selenia FFDM system uses two parameters to compute the optimal x-ray exposure technique: (1) the compressed breast thickness, and (2) the estimated breast tissue density. The compressed breast thickness is automatically read by the Selenia FFDM compression paddle system. The mammography technologist estimates the breast tissue density, and sets the breast density control to one of the following three choices: FATTY, NORMAL, and DENSE. The computed x-ray exposure techniques (kV, filter, and mAs) are displayed on the Selenia acquisition display. Once the mammography technologist accepts the displayed exposure techniques, the Selenia FFDM system will change from STANDBY to READY, and an image can be acquired instantly. TEC mode is an advanced MANUAL exposure mode. The mammography technologist always has the option to override the computed exposure techniques, simply by manually changing one the exposure parameters (kV, mAs, or filter). After the computed exposure techniques are accepted or changed by the mammography technologist, the Selenia FFDM system will no longer automatically re-calculate the exposure parameters. The TEC mode can be enabled again by changing the breast tissue density control, or by releasing and reapplying breast compression.

Chapter 2Selenia Acquisition Workstation Q and A What must I know to acquire images on patients with implants?

What must I know to acquire images on patients with implants?


The wide dynamic range of the digital detector on Selenia FFDM systems allows more flexibility in selecting techniques for imaging implants. However, image processing does not always produce optimal results. When all factors work together, digital images of implants contain more diagnostic information and are far superior to screen-film images. Image processing on the system uses special algorithms to detect an implant on a digital mammogram. A key element contributing to the success of this algorithm is the use of correct exposure techniques. Although the digital detector may forgive mistakes in imaging techniques, the right exposure range is still necessary to acquire optimum images. The following sections provide guidance and recommendations to optimize the task of imaging patients with implants. Compressing breast tissue that contains an implant is challenging to the technologist and the patient. Compression is important and adequate compression must be used when imaging patients with implants. Large variations of compressed thickness between the implant and the rest of the breast tissue may prevent image processing from correctly identifying the implant region. Note Always manually position the AEC Sensor when using AEC to image patients with implants. (If you use Auto AEC position, the system will place an AEC sensor under the densest portion of the breast; in a case with implants this will always be under the implant.)

Technologists Workbook for Selenia and SecurView


Chapter 2Selenia Acquisition Workstation Q and A What must I know to acquire images on patients with implants?

Method OneImaging patients with implants away from the nipple


The following figure demonstrates a breast with ample tissue in front of the implant. The Selenia AEC system may be used in this case to select the exposure techniques more accurately. You can use the Auto-Filter mode and move the AEC sensor manually to the middle of the breast tissue area.

The implant away from the nipple provides enough breast tissue for AEC imaging.

Method TwoImaging patients with implants near the nipple


The next figure shows minimal breast tissue around the implant. When there is a small amount of breast tissue in front of the implant, the Selenia AEC can not be used accurately. Part of the implant can interfere with the AEC sensor. In this case use the Manual exposure techniques instead of AEC. The two tables shown below the figure provide the exposure techniques which apply to patients with implants that fall under this category. Do not use the exposure techniques in these tables to acquire images of patients without implants or to acquire implant displaced views. These exposure techniques were created only for imaging implants with minimal tissue around the implant.

Chapter 2Selenia Acquisition Workstation Q and A What must I know to acquire images on patients with implants?

Method ThreeImaging Patients with dense tissue next to the implants


When a very dense area is next to the implant, the image processing can detect this dense area as an extension of the implant. When a dense area next to the implant appears unexposed and part of the implant, the following actions can correct the condition and improve the image quality of the dense area: When you acquire the image of the implant with METHOD 1, switch to the Auto-Time AEC mode and increase the kV exposure technique by 2 kV. Adjust the manual position of the AEC sensor, if necessary; When you acquire the image of the implant with METHOD 2, keep the same mAs and increase the kV exposure technique by 2 kV.

Method FourImaging Implant Displaced views


The figure below shows the implant completely or partly displaced from the imaging area. The Implant Displaced views are equivalent to normal views even though a small part of the implant remains visible in the image. Use the Selenia AEC (for example, Auto-Filter) to acquire these views. You should use a manual AEC sensor position to acquire implant displaced views to avoid interference from part of the implant still being present.

Chapter 2Selenia Acquisition Workstation Q and A How should I perform implant procedures?

How should I perform implant procedures?


Note Never use AUTO AEC sensor mode when imaging implants. AUTO AEC mode puts an AEC sensor under the densest part of the breast. In a case with implants, this part is always under the implant. When imaging patients with implants with AEC, always use a manual position for the AEC Sensor location.

1. Select the Screening Mammogram w/Implants procedure from the drop-down list. Check the Implant Present box above the views. Leave this box checked for all views. 2. Position and compress the breast correctly for an augmented breast. 3. Acquire the full implant view: a. Method OneIf the implant is away from the nipple, use Auto-Filter and manaually move the AEC Sensor to the middle of the breast tissue.

b. Method TwoIf the implant is near the nipple, use a Manual exposure technique for the full implant view. Refer to the charts below for recommended exposure techniques to acquire an image of an implant near the nipple. The Exposure Index will be very low, but you do not need to be concerned. The exposure index is measured under the implant.

Recommended Exposure Techniques to Acquire an Image of an Implant Near the Nipple Selenia with Molybdenum X-ray tube Selenia with Tungsten X-ray Tube Thickness (cm) Less than 4 cm 4 cm to < 6 cm 6 cm to < 8 cm 8 cm to 10 cm More than 10 cm c. kV 28 28 28 28 28 mAs 100 120 150 150 180 Selenia with Molybdenum X-ray Tube Thickness (cm) Less than 4 cm 4 cm to < 6 cm 6 cm to < 8 cm 8 cm to 10 cm More than 10 cm kV 28 28 28 28 28 mAs 60 100 160 200 240

Method ThreeIf the full implant preview includes a dense area next to the implant, re-acquire the image: 1. If you used Method One, switch to Auto-Time and increase kV by 2 kV. Adjust the manual sensor if necessary. 2. If you used Method Two, keep the same mAs and increase the kV by 2 kV.

4. Perform implant displaced views with AEC. a. If the implant is in the field of view, place the photocell beyond the implant to avoid photo timing through the implant.

b. If the implant can be almost completely displaced from the imaging area, use AutoFilter. c. Note If a small part of the implant appears in the imaging area, use a manual sensor position. If you forget to check the Implant Present box on the Patient View screen, you may check the box on the Preview screen then click the Reprocess Image button at the bottom of the Preview screen.

Chapter 2Selenia Acquisition Workstation Q and A Hints for a Localization Procedure

Hints for a Localization Procedure


The Localization procedure has additional steps not needed in other clinical procedures. Refer to the software manual for the procedure. If a paddle other than the Localization paddle will be used, you must turn off the Automatic Compression Release. 1. From the Main Menu, select Edit>Standard Setup. 2. Select Manual in the Compression Release field. Wait a few seconds before closing the window for the change to take effect. 3. Click the Close button.

4. After closing the Standard Setup window, confirm that Manual Release has been activated by checking the settings in the lower left hand part of screen. See the figure above. Upon completion of the Procedure, change the Compression Release back to automatic if this is the default. Confirm Automatic Release has been activated by checking settings in lower left hand part of screen.

Remove the face shield. To add views, click the Add View button before you begin the exam. (Be aware, any additional view is automatically highlighted, so make sure you scroll back to the beginning of your procedure and highlight the first view). Take the scout image using Auto-Filter. Do not use Auto AEC position. Use manual position 2 or 3. If doing a magnification needle localization attach the magnification stand and magnification crosshairs. Remember to move the crosshair device or dial the crosshairs out of the field before you acquire the scout image.

What is the recommended exposure technique for a Specimen?


Refer to the user manuals for the procedure. Position the specimen as close to the chest wall edge as possible. Always use a spot paddle. Use the magnification stand if desired. Take an exposure using the Manual technique, 25 kVp, and 26 mAs.

Chapter 2Selenia Acquisition Workstation Q and A How do I edit the patient information on Selenia, and PACS?

How do I edit the patient information on Selenia, and PACS?


The best place to change the patient information is on the HIS/RIS before any information is sent to the Selenia. If the images are acquired and sent to the PACS, change the information at the PACS. Change Patient Information at the Selenia application as a last resort. Some RIS systems eliminate the ability to change these errors at the Selenia. Because you can cause a mismatch of information when the Selenia images are sent to PACS, work with your HIS/RIS administrator before you make any changes to the patient information at the Selenia. You can only change the demographics for a procedure on the Acquisition Workstation. Demographics cannot be changed once the procedure is reclaimed. Be sure the incorrect images are still on the Acquisition Workstation before you delete them from the PACS. If incorrect images are already accepted and sent to Outputs, prior to sending corrected images you must: At the SV: Sign on to the SVDX as delete and delete that patient study. At the PACS: Contact your PACS Administrator and alert them to delete the incorrect study or advise another corrective measure.

Correct the information at the Acquisition Workstation


Change the information on the Patient View screen. Use the procedure in the software user manual. These are some additional hints. 1. In the Patient View screen under Patient (right side of screen) click the Edit button. See figure at right. 2. If the Accession Number is also incorrect, Click the Edit button under Procedure (right side middle of figure) and make the correction in that dialog box. 3. Close the procedure.

Resend the corrected images to the Outputs


1. Click Admin>Image (or Spool) Mgmt. 2. Display the patient and click the Repreview tab. See figure at right. 3. Select and save each of the original images. (Follow the procedure in the software user manual.) There should now be eight thumbnails (assuming there were four in the original study). 4. Click all of the last four thumbnails (these are the corrected views) and resend them. After you confirm that the new images have been sent, you may (at mgr level) go back into Spool Mgmt and delete the four images labeled incorrectly.

Chapter 2Selenia Acquisition Workstation Q and A What if I take an exposure using an incorrect icon?

What if I take an exposure using an incorrect icon?


You have an Edit View button
If your Preview screen looks like this in the top right corner and an incorrect view is acquired (e.g., RCC icon highlighted, but patient is positioned for LCC): If you have not accepted the image, use the Edit View button, select the correct view, and click OK. It replaces the incorrect icon with a corrected thumbnail. You must add another view for the icon that was replaced. If you have accepted the image, repreview the image, make the view corrections. At the dialog box choose to not send the corrected image until you have deleted the incorrect image from the output. Then, refer to the software user manual for resend directions.

You do not have an Edit View button


If your Preview screen looks like this in the top right corner and an incorrect view is acquired (e.g., RCC icon highlighted, but patient is positioned for LCC) there are two scenarios to consider:

Scenario One
If the mistake is discovered before the image is accepted: 1. With the Preview screen displayed, click the Clear All Markers button (upper right side of screen); the incorrect marker is removed. 2. Click the correct marker tab. 3. Click the correct marker. A new marker appears on the preview image. 4. Use the table on the following pages as a guide to determine if additional changes are required. These changes may include: Dragging the new marker to the bottom of the image. (This is done by putting your cursor on the new marker, then holding the left trackball button down while moving the trackball to move the new marker to the desired area.) Changing the Image Laterality (middle right side of screen). Changing the Patient Orientation Column (middle right side of screen).

Note

The flipped images are not shown on the Acquisition Workstation, but are shown on the SecurView workstation. They may not show on 3rd party systems.

5. Click the Accept button, after the changes have been made.
