    Recalling Organisation: GE Healthcare Limited, 8 Tangihua Street, Auckland 1010
  • Causa
    Ge healthcare has become aware that the service procedure used to replace a power supply on the rotating side of the gantry specifies the wrong torque for the mounting hardware. because of this error, the three mounting bolts securing the power supply could have been over-torqued when the component was replaced since installation. in the unlikely event that the component becomes loose on the ct gantry during operation, it could result in serious bodily injury if the component were to be expelled.
