  • Causa
    With digitaldiagnost (didi) r 2.0.2 a mirrored "r in a circle" is burnt into the image (if mirrored) in the lower right corner of the image. when such an image is mirrored back inside the pacs system, an unmirrored "r in a circle" appears in the lower left corner. this can be mistaken for a "right patient side" marker, although this can appear on the left patient side., philips previously notified owners of affected digitaldiagnost systems that software release 2.1.3 would be installed on their systems to modify the appearance of the mirror icon, as described below. however, software release 2.1.3 contained a defect that may result in the incorrect placement of the electronic marker (left/right) indicating the patient side if an image is rotated.
