Recall Action Classification Class II
Recall Action Commencement Date 20/06/2018
Responsible Entity Philips Electronics Australia Ltd
Reason/Issue Philips have identified that the first time an operator selects a new procedure type during a single examination, the shutter position resets to the open position for the new procedure type. If the shutters had previously been changed during the examination, that setting is not retained after the first time the procedure type is changed during a single examination.
Recall Action Product Defect Correction
Recall Action Instructions Philips is advising this issue will be resolved in a software update, expected to be available in the second half of 2018. Philips will notify users when this software update is available.

Until a software revision that corrects this issue becomes available, users should verify that the desired shutter position is set when performing the run after the first time the procedure type is changed during a single examination. This can be accomplished by first selecting a different procedure and then reselect the original procedure on the Xper Module or on the Data Monitor.
