  • Causa
    Philips has identified when using the downscale option, the measurements performed with the allura r9 or azurion r1.1 systems (using qa basic measurement tool) will not be correctly exported to the external dicom destination. the difference between the original & exported measurements can vary, and the distance value after export is factor 1 to 4 smaller than the original. the difference will depend on the acquired image & used archive settings. if the measurement is re-performed at the external dicom destination, the result will also be incorrect unless a recalibration of the image is executed. if these exported downscaled images are used during/in preparation of a procedure, the incorrect measurement values could result in the selection of an incorrectly sized device. the same applies if a measurement is re-performed at the external dicom destination without executing a recalibration of the image.To date philips is not aware of any injuries that may have occurred due to this issue.
