  • Causa
    Philips identified an issue due to hydrogen embrittlement of fasteners during manufacture of ct systems. it was determined the issue was due to trapped hydrogen introduced into the fastener during electroplating operations performed by a philips supplier. hydrogen embrittled fasteners can crack and fail suddenly when under stress. assessment of these fasteners determined that sufficient mitigations were in place such that a single-point failure did not exist. even should two fasteners fail for the same component, the occurrence of harm was determined to be less than remote. there have been no complaints associated with this issue, and no reports of injury or death.
  • Acción
    Philips will replace the affected service latch fasteners for the units in the field. Philips is advising customers that in the interim, the affected CT systems have been determined to be safe for continued use.
