Recall Action Level Hospital
Recall Action Classification Class II
Recall Action Commencement Date 12/05/2016
Responsible Entity Philips Electronics Australia Ltd
Reason/Issue The following issues have been identified which may result in additional patient scanning and threfore additional radiation doses. There have been no reports of injuries as a result of these issues;

- Sagittal result shortened for axial head scans.
- When axial images are acquired with a gantry tilt, the scan increment is manually changed to the same value as the collimation, the console viewer will not allow creation of MPR images due to the scan series being broken into serval series of images.
- Scan length changes with a change in field of view (FOV).
- Scan length changes on subsequent axial results.
- Surview scan lengths near 184.4mm & 135.0mm may result in unexpected scan start positions.
- There may be a discrepancy between the calculated reconstruction length and the actual scan length which may result in the inability to reconstruct the raw data. Offline reconstruction of the raw data is not possible.
