  • Causa
    Philips has identified a software defect that may result in the scanner updating the planned scan length to be longer than the user intended. this may happen if:1. the exam is planned with low pitch and rotation time values, for example, 0.3 pitch and 0.27 rotation time, and2. the plan scan length is increased or lengthened on the surview/scout, and3. the system displays a pop-up message that the current pitch, rotation time, and planned scan length are incompatible and suggests a new pitch and rotation time. 4. if the user accepts the suggested pitch and rotation time changes, the system adjusts the plan to the maximum allowed scan length, which will plan the study beyond the original intended length.
