  • Acción
    Philips has corrected this issue in QLAB version 10.2, and is sending a CD with QLAB version 10.2 to affected customers. Until your software can be upgraded to QLAB version 10.2, end users can avoid the issue by: - Ensuring that a2DQ patient exams include both biplane views for AP2 and AP4. When both biplane views are present, EF measurements will not persist from measurements taken in a prior patient exam. - Ensuring that aCMQ patient exams include all three views (AP2, AP3, and AP4). When all three views are present, measurements will not persist from measurements taken in a prior patient exam. This action has been closed-out on 03/06/2016.
