  • Causa
    Icon 9.5 software does not apply flood corrections during whole body spect studies with multiple bed positions.
  • Acción
    Siemens sent Customer Advisory letters dated 2/10/03 to all ICON 9.5 customers with Whole Body SPECT functionality on integrated camera systems including Diacam, Multispect 2, Multispect 3 and camera systems aquired on an ICON workstation. The accounts were informed of the problem related to applying the flood correction matrix to Whole Body SPECT studies in ICON version 9.5 software, and were provided the follwoing workaround: To ensure that the flood correction is applied, the user should acquire multiple single bed positions with the General SPECT predefine, indexing the bed manually between each SPECT acquisition. The data can then be combined into a Whole Body SPECT in the Whole Body SPECT Display program for review. In addition, users were requested to routinely perform standard quality control procedures at the facility to ensure proper image quality. No software upgrade is planned.
