Action An Urgent Medical Device Correction letter dated June 11, 2018 was sent to customers. The letter identified the affected product, problem and actions to be taken. The letter instructed customers, until a software revision that corrects this issue becomes available, users should verify that the desired shutter position is set when performing the run after the first time the procedure type is changed during a single examination. This can be accomplished by first selecting a different procedure and then reselect the original procedure on the Xper Module or on the Data Monitor. Customer shall ensure that all staff with access to the affected systems are informed of the contents of this Field Safety Notice. A copy of this Field Safety Notice shall be placed together with the documentation of the system until the system has been corrected by Philips.
