Product Detail

Product Description Code Info Classification Reason for Recall Product Quantity Recall Number
ARTIS zee and zeego x-ray, angiographic system with Software Artis VC20x/VC21A that have Patch 7 and a 3D and DSA license installed. Angiographic x-ray system Model numbers: 10094137, 10094139, 10094141, 10280959 Class II Siemens issued a customer safety advisory notice and field safety corrective action for a potential issue on Artis systems with Artis VC20x/VC21A that have Patch 7 and a 3D and DSA license installed. The issue affects-DSA rotational acquisition. The restriction is related to any rotational 3D-acquisition program with real-time subtraction (e.g. 3D DSA). During the fill phase of the rotational aquisition, the subtraction is not correctly displayed on the live monitor in the control room. As subtracted images are not displayed correctly, this may lead the user to abort or redo the 3D protocol, potentially resulting in the application of an additional dose or contrast agent. 3D data are saved however, and available on the system. 29 Z-1782-2013
