Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
With Digital Diagnost R2.0.2 a mirrored "R in a circle" is burnt into the image (if mirrored) in the lower right corner of the image. When such an image is mirrored back inside the PACS system, an unmirrored "R in a circle" appears in the lower left corner. This can be mistaken for a "Right patient side" marker, although this can appear on the left patient side.
