Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
If a user site created a custom default display protocol (DDP) to display the current exam versus the historical exam and the user-defined DDP fails, the system displays the exams using a GE default hanging protocol. This may create a potential for misdiagnosis if the user does not review the date and time stamps in the title bars.
FDA Determined

DESIGN: Software Design
Action GE Healthcare Integrated IT Solutions notified their Centricity PACS RA1000 Workstation software customers via letter (Urgent Medical Device Correction) dated 1/12/09 of the software anomaly resulting in a patient safety issue involving Default Display Protocols.
