Product Distributed Qty
Reason For Recall The MiniCAT CT Scanners subject to this notification failed to meet Xoran's specifications for dose rate of 125 ± 3 kVp. These 18 complaints received include dose rates both on the high and low end of Xoran's specifications. See ATTACHMENT 1 for details. (e) A n evaluation of the hazards reasonably related to defect or the failure to comply with the Federal standard; An evaluation of the health hazard was performed on the issue of dose rate/kVp being found outside Xoran's specifications on the MiniCAT CT Scanners. Xoran specifies that the dose rate must be within a tight range. This range is smaller than what is specified as passing by West Physics. West Physics had stated in a report "For this test, a measured effective dose of less than 0.4 mSv is considered satisfactory, and a measured does of greater than 0.23 mSv (but less than 0.4 mSv) will be investigated for possible corrective action." A scanner that falls outside the Xoran specification of 0.23 mSv does not present a danger to the patient. A copy of the health hazard evaluation may be found in ATTACHMENT 2.
