  • Causa
    The instructions for use state how (and how not) to position the sense body coil 1.5t and its cables in relation to the patient and mr bore in order to avoid a hazardous situation. when these instructions are not followed during an examination, the positioning of the coil cables can create unintended resonances via the patient or elevated coil cable temperature due to rf coupling to the qbc.
  • Acción
    Philips is reiterating the warnings in the IFU regarding positioning the cables and leads. A sleeve is being developed that will be applied to the cable on the SENSE Body Coil 1.5T and provide consistent spacing between the cable and the patient, thereby reducing the chance of RF interaction and heating.
