Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
It was reported that when the GE Precision 500D foot pedal is repeatedly activated, a defect in the fluoro-timer will cause the dose measurement to report a higher value than was actually received by the patient. Patient will receive a lower dosage irradiation time which will result in indication of cumulative air kerma higher than that to which the patient was actually exposed.
