  • Acción
    Image Guided Therapy Systems ( IGT) sent an Urgent - Field Safety Notice Medical Device Correction letter dated August 11. 2017. The Downscale option should be disabled in all Export protocols until Philips corrects this issue. To accomplish this, you may refer to Chapter 13.8 (Configuring Export Protocols) of the system instructions for use that describes how to perform this action. You may also contact your Philips local representative for assistance in performing this action. All archived images exported using the downscale option would be affected by this issue, therefore such measurements from archived images should not be relied on. Additional precaution could be taken by re-performing measurements during the actual interventional procedure. The problem will be resolved by a software update, which is expected to be available by the end of 2017. In the interim, a similar notice will be provided along with newly manufactured devices shipped for use. For further questions, please call (800) 722-9377.
