  • Causa
    Philips previously notified owners of digitaldiagnost systems with software releases 3.0.1 and 3.0.2, that a new software release 3.0.3 would be installed on their systems (without due consultation with the tga). however, software release 3.0.3 contained a defect that may result in the incorrect placement of the electronic marker (left/right) indicating the patient side of an image is rotated. software release 3.0.4 corrects this defect in release 3.0.3, and it will be installed on affected systems in place of release 3.0.3.When the operator for a wall stand view selects an “image rotation” different from default, or such image rotation is preset in the examination database, then the resulting image may be rotated in the wrong direction. when the operator manually rotates the image back, electronic side markers (if programmed) are rotated also and as a result may be placed in a wrong position inside the image.
