The shield should be approximately positioned to align with the patients elbow. Some adjustment will be required to find the optimum position of the shield between the clinician and the radiation source.
Push the STARTable daggerboard underneath the mattress at base of the shield. This will ensure ease of placement and no requirement for using excessive force.
Attaching the STARTable shelf to the STARTable shield
This is easily done by slotting the shelf straight down over the blue spigots. Align the slots on the shelf with the blue spigots and slide down.
Sliding the STARTable Shelf
The shelf can be moved along the shield by sliding it across. This allows the clinician to fine tune the position of the work surface relative to the STARBoard (or wrist) whilst maintaining the optimum position of the shield between them and the radiation source. It may be necessary to adjust the position of the shield slightly at this point also.
The shelf can then be adjusted after the sterile drape is applied should further adjustment be required.
