Product Detail

Product Description Code Info Classification Reason for Recall Product Quantity Recall Number
Hitachi Echelon MRI System/Oasis MRI, Software. These are software controlled MRI devices. Product Usage: The Echelon and Oasis MR systems are imaging devices, intended to provide the physician with physiological and clinical information that can be useful in diagnosis determination. Echelon, V001 through V061, inclusive. Oasis, M001 through M105, inclusive, M951 Class II Hitachi discovered a software error with a feature called Multi-Planar Reconstruction (MPR). MPR takes an original volume dataset reconstructed in any plane view and creates a new image set from another view (i.e. axial to coronal, coronal to sagittal, etc.). The error causes the first image in the dataset to have a right/left reversed orientation. The software error can occur randomly when executing the MPR task. 165 units Z-2254-2012
