  • Causa
    Two issues have been identified with the samsung digital x-ray system gc80:1. if the user does not completely close the detector tray in the table or stand, the system turns into the portable mode or the multi-portable mode and auto exposure control (aec) turns off. at this time, the screen of workstation and the screen of tube head unit (thu) show the portable mode on or the multi portable mode on and aec off. if the user makes an exposure without checking, it may be irradiated differently than intended and produce an unintended image.2. if the user incorrectly attempts to use a portable detector within the table detector or stand detector areas with the auto detector option switched on, the system may automatically select the table or stand detectors if the focal spot is met. in this situation, if the user attempts an exposure of the portable detector without checking which detector is selected, it may be irradiated differently than intended and produce an unintended image.

    Samsung is advising users: 1. Carefully close the detector tray and check that the detector tray is completely closed. 2. When using a portable detector: a. ensure the portable detector is placed outside the table detector or stand detector area when the auto detector option is switched on; or b. switch off the auto detector option before exposing patients with a portable detector placed within the table or stand detector areas. 3. Always carefully check the screen of Workstation or the screen of THU before making an exposure, and be sure to check the Receptor (4), AEC mode (7,8), and the exposure condition (1,2,3,5,6,9,10,11,12). If the intended detector is not set, please select the detector to be used. Samsung is planning to release updated software (expected to be available 30 June 2018) to prevent the outlined issues occurring. Implementation of the software update will be carried out by Quantum Healthcare Pty Ltd.
