Siemens RAD Fluoro Uro Systems - Luminos dRF, Ysio and Uroskop Omnia with software versions VB10D, VB10F, VB10C and VB10E. Fluroscopic X-Ray Systems Material 10094910, with serial numbers 1036, 1045, 1025, 1040, 1041, 1032, 1047 and 1035; Material 10281013, with serial numbers 21221, 21223, 21213, 21089, 21098, 21163, 21171, 21194, 21212, 21186, 21188, 21167, 21187 and 21189; Material 10281163, with serial number 31114. Class II Siemens has discovered through product monitoring a potential malfunction when using system operating with software versions VB10D, VB10F, VB10C and VB10. During a RAD examination the possibility exists that radiation may continue longer than expected and may result in unnecessary dose applied during an acquisition. Additionally, it is not possible for the user to stop the radiation manually; however, there are emergency circuits active which will stop radiation through another independent mechanism. If the image quality of the overexposed image is unacceptable for diagnosis, the examination could potentially have to be repeated. The upgrade to software version VB10G resolves this potential malfunction. For patients who were treated with affected systems in the past, no measures such as additional treatment or aftercare are necessary. 23 Z-0016-2014
