  • Causa
    Ge healthcare has become aware of an issue associated with the base casting for the articulated arm of the vmx and vmx plus mobile x-ray systems that may impact operator or patient safety. the casting which retains the articulated arm to the base of the vmx may develop fatigue cracks through long term use of the product. if the casting develops cracks of significant size the articulated arm may no longer be properly secured to the base of the vmx. the loss of retention may permit the articulated arm x-ray tube and collimator to fall in an uncontrolled manner. the fall of this object may create a hazard to operators and patients during transport or use of the equipment.
