  • Causa
    There were two incidents in the united states where the previous patient image was displayed on the console with the current patient's name. carestream health has determined that this only occurs when the user interrupts the daily offset refresh detector calibration by switching the active detector from one bucky to another (e.G. table to the wall) and cancels detector calibration within 30 seconds of initiating this process. there have been no reports of misdiagnosis or injuries related to this issue.
  • Acción
    Carestream Health is recommending that the daily detector calibration process should not be interrupted once initiated and completed only when patients are not being imaged. Carestream Health is installing the software modification as a permanent correction.
