  • Causa
    A potential measurement error may occur in all exams (except cardiac) when using the auto-stats tool or the velocity tool during live imaging and when adjusting one of the following parameters with the auto-stats tool enabled:- changing the transmit frequency of the active transducer using the pw multihz control. - adjusting the position of the spectral baseline using the baseline control.- adjusting the pulsed repetition frequency (prf) using the scale control. during system freeze, the measured results indicate the scale values prior to adjustment of any of the above parameters. as a result, the measurements and/or calculations will be incorrect. to date, no patient injury has been reported as a result of this issue.
  • Acción
    Siemens is advising operators that the issue can be avoided by not using the Auto-Stats tool and to only use the Velocity tool on frozen images. A Siemens service engineer will be in contact to update to software to correct the issue. Users are advised that a look back at previously reported results should be considered at the discretion of the clinician. Thia action has been closed-out on 28/01/2016.
