  • Causa
    Ge healthcare has become aware of a potential safety issue related to the operation of the safety latch holding mechanism for the horizontal arm of the x-ray system. this safety latch mechanism serves as a backup in the unlikely event the primary safety cable breaks. in order to encounter the hazardous situation where the x-ray tube horizontal arm falls, it would require the following condition to occur simultaneously which is highly unlikely:1) the counter weight cable system (steel cable or pulley/idler) breaks.2) the safety mechanism does not engage and hold the tube–arm there have been no incidents or injuries reported as a result of this internally found issue.
  • Acción
