Cause 2
Action Spectrum Dynamics sent a "Voluntary Field Correction" letter dated July 15, 2011, to all affected customers. The letter identified the product the problem and the action needed to be taken. To implement this fix, a BC Technical Field Service Engineer contacted users to schedule a service visit. In the meantime, Spectrum Dynamics did not believe that this issue warranted the discontinuation of use of the D-SPECT Cardiac Scanner. However, in an abundance of caution, if the detector housing appeared to be loose, or appeared to be disconnecting from the gantry, do not use the system. Please contact your local BC Technical Field Service Engineer immediately. Enclosed is a verification form. Please fax the completed form at your earliest convenience to 415.663.4225. For further information or support concerning this issue, please call 925.922.2615.
