    Siemens sent a Customer Safety Advisory Notice dated June 26, 2013, to all affected customers. The letter identified the product, the problem, and the action needed to be taken by the customer. Customers were strongly recommend to carefully evaluate one of the following options before running 3D rotational acquisition programs that include real-time subtraction until a patch is installed on their system: 1) position the monitor in a way such that contrast advancement can be monitored during the fill phase on the live monitor in the control room. 2) For applications not requiring actions based on the contrast flow during the fill phase, the contrast may not need to be monitored during the fill phase. Although the monitor is not showing the expected subtraction, the acquisition is working correctly. There is no need to interrupt, but continue and finish the workflow. 3) Perform 3D rotational programs that include real time subtraction from the exam room. The display on the live monitor in the exam room is not affected by this problem. To resolve the issue, the update AX028/13/P (VC20x/VC21B), will be made available around July 2013, and scheduling an appointment for implementation of the update with Siemens Customer Service organization was recommended. If this device/equipment is no longer in theirr possession, customers were asked to forward this safety notice to the new owner and inform Siemens of the new user's identity.
