  • Causa
    Siemens has identified that the following issues with somatom go.Up and somatom go.Now may require an additional scan that exposes the patient to an additional x-ray dose: 1: software stability problems preventing the start of a reconstruction after the ct examination. if these problems occur, this is indicated by a red cross in the “job status” table. 2: impact on image quality: if the detector is still in adjustment mode at the time the scan command is provided from the control box, severe streak artefacts may occur. 3: only for customers using syngo osteo ct: if the scan/recon tab card is closed after an osteoporosis scan of a patient but before the intended osteo reconstruction has been completed, the osteo reconstruction cannot be continued or completed at a later point in time. in this case, a rescan would be necessary to complete the osteo reconstruction.
  • Acción
