Responsible Entity Philips Electronics Australia Ltd
Reason/Issue Several software issues were identified which will be corrected with the release of a new software version.
1. When positioning for a relative 180 degree non-circular acquisition, if the second (bottom) detector is not positioned correctly, it may result in an inappropriate rotation orbit calculation for the patient being imaged. This may result in the detectors coming in contact with the patient.
2. As the gantry system moves to a relative 90 degree scan position of the detectors, a patient/operator may move their hands or arms into the path of the detectors, resulting in contact with the patient/operator.
3. When a user manually positions the patient for an exam and is translating the pallet into the gantry bore, the pallet catcher that supports the imaging table was higher than the imaging pallet which may result in a pinch point or table tilt if not engaged with the catcher. This problem can only occur on the BrightView X or the BrightView XCT system.
