  • Causa
    Siemens recently detected a rubber isolator with unfavourable aging properties. the function of this rubber isolator, which is situated within the rotate motor mounting assembly, may degrade over time and may impact motor support. in rare cases, when unfavourable aging has occurred, the rubber isolator may break and cause loss of support for the rotate motor. this event could lead to a rupture of the drive belt which in turn could damage the gantry covers and make contact with the patient. the possibility of a serious injury does exist if the belt makes contact with the patient. siemens have not received any reports of injury with the symbia t or symbia lntevo camera systems as a result of this problem.
