  • Causa
    Ge healthcare has recently become aware of a potential safety issue due to scatter overcorrection associated with the list mode replay feature of the discovery 600 and discovery 690. a software issue exists when using list mode replay, such that subsequent reconstructions with that data could contribute to an image with scatter over-estimation and overcorrection. reconstructed images with this issue will have many fewer counts than the acquired scan data and a high scatter fraction. this issue may affect studies that use list mode replay and are reconstructed after subsequent acquisitions and may lead to image misinterpretation and/or inaccurate treatment decisions.
  • Acción
    To avoid this potential issue, GE Healthcare is advising customers to implement temporary workaround instructions through the customer letters. GE Healthcare will provide a software update for all affected systems to address the issue permanently.
