  • Causa
    Philips previously notified owners of affected digitaldiagnost systems that software release 2.1.3 would be installed on the systems to modify the appearance of a mirror icon. however, software release 2.1.3 contained a defect that may result in the incorrect placement of the electronic marker (left/right) indicating the patient side if an image is rotated.Software release 2.1.4 addresses both the original & new issue, & it will be installed on affected systems in place of release 2.1.3. if software release 2.1.3 has already been installed on a system, it will be replaced with release 2.1.4.With digitaldiagnost r 2.0.2 a mirrored “r in a circle” is burnt into the image (if mirrored) in the lower right corner of the image. when such an image is mirrored back inside the pacs system, an unmirrored “r in a circle” appears in the lower left corner. this can be mistaken for a “right patient side” marker, although this can appear on the left patient side.
