  • Causa
    Gradient coil electromechanical connections may loosen causing an increase in resistance. the increased resistance can lead to increasing heat during scanning which, in turn, can cause material in the rear endbell enclosure to overheat, generate smoke in the scan room, and cause some localized melting of the endbell. this overheating has occurred only while units were being serviced by ge service engineers during repeated evaluation scanning. however, the issue could also occur in clinical mode.
