  • Causa
    Carestream health australia pty ltd has received a report of the tube and yoke assembly of a drx revolution mobile x-ray system separating, caused by 4missing mounting screws in the assembly – not installed at the time of manufacturing. there was no resulting injury. there is a remote possibility of this failure occurring in another drx revolution mobile x-ray system and the likelihood of injury would be mitigated by both bump stop and e-stop systems on the device – which the driver/operator could use. however, given the weight of the device and the speed at which it can travel, should the device make contact with a person, the subsequent collision or crushing injury could be serious e.G. fractured/broken bones.

    Carestream is advising users that they will be inspecting affected serial numbers and installing the mounting screws should they be missing. The device can continue to be used normally until the inspection has been conducted.
