  • Causa
    Philips has become aware of the following issues: - slab viewer longitudinal location issue - it is possible for the system to invert the sign (positive/negative) of the longitudinal position value displayed on an axial scan image. the following key events must take place for harm to occur: -the patient is placed in a "feet-first" orientation. -an interventional ct procedure is scheduled. -contrary to typical clinical practice a multi-planar reconstruction (mpr) is used for planning the interventional procedure (this issue only occurs in images produced using mpr). -a check scan is not performed (normal clinical practice indicates the use of a check scan before beginning an interventional procedure). -the needle tip placement is not confirmed as directed (this practice would prevent more than a minimal ingress of an intervention at an undesired location). - fast get ready issue - fast get ready incorrectly enabled during service procedures. - contrast annotation issue - contrast annotation incorrectly missing for some images when manual contrast was administered. - dot artifact issue - dot artifact present intermittently after startup. - heart rate update issue - heart rate measured value incorrectly remains constant for some heart rate change conditions. - doseright issue - doseright incorrectly enabled when the exam card specified disabling doseright. - tube heat issue - tube heat predictor fails to warn of overheat condition for long scans.
