    The firm, Siemens, notified their customers on March 4, 2013 and sent a "Customer Safety Advisory Notice" letter dated April 03, 2013. The letter described the product, problem and actions to be taken. The customers were instructed to always check whether the laterality information is displayed in the image text of mammography images; if not, the DICOM header is accessible and can be checked for the tag "Laterality" (0020, 0060). If a system is not able to provide the DICOM tag "Image Laterality" (0020, 0062), configuring the image text by adding the tag was proposed. If you have sold the device/equipment and it is no longer in your possession, forward this safety notice to the new owner of the device/equipment and inform us about the new owner of the device/equipment. This issue will be resolved in the syngo.plaza software version VA20D_HF04 which is planned to be released in 02/2013.
