If the system is connected to local area network (LAN), Brainlab recommends to install malware protection software (e.g., virus scanner) and keep the definition files up to date. Please be aware that the malware protection software settings can affect the system performance. For example, if each file accessed is monitored, patient data loading and saving might be slow. Therefore, Brainlab recommends disabling real-time scans and performing virus scans during non-clinical hours.
Updates to the Operating System (hotfixes) or third-party software should be performed outside clinical hours and in a test environment to verify correct operation of the Brainlab system. Brainlab monitors the released Windows hotfixes and will know, for some updates, if problems can be expected. Please contact Brainlab support if any problems to OS hotfixes are encountered.
You can define your own malicious software protection measures, provided a system revalidation is done afterwards. Virus scanner settings can affect the system performance (e.g., if each file accessed is monitored, patient data loading and saving might be slow).
Calculation performance may be affected by other processes on the same machine. Dose optimization is highly dependent on the CPU and to a lesser degree file I/O. If other processes use the CPU heavily or block/use the file I/O, the application performance will be negatively affected.
The calculation time is dependent on:
CPU (speed and number of processors)
File I/O (speed of the hard disk)
Size of organs
Template used. For the initial template the calculation time is under five minutes for a system meeting the minimal hardware constraints.
After system acceptance, a backup of the Adaptive Hybrid Surgery Analysis installation is created. This backup will not run on workstations other than the one to which the software is licensed.
