  • Causa
    While performing a fluoroscopic acquisition with the innova 2121iq or innova 3131iq systems, there is a potential for loss of usable imaging mode which requires the system to restart in order to recover. it may happen in a very specific scenario when one operator is requesting a lih (last image hold) functionality and another operator starts a short fluoroscopy exposure (stopping fluoroscopy exposure within 2 seconds) without waiting for the display of the lih (last image hold) in review monitor. the user would need to restart the system in order to regain acquisition capability.
  • Acción
    GE Healthcare is providing work around instructions to mitigate the risk and will be implementing a software update to permanently correct the issue.
