Product Extended Brilliance Workstation Computed Tomography X-Ray Systems, M/N 728260, Distributed by: Philips Medical System, Cleveland, OH

Product Usage: The Computed Tomography X-Ray Systems are intended to produce cross-sectional images of the body by computer reconstruction of x-ray transmission data taken at different angles and planes. These devices may include signal analysis and display equipment, patient, and equipment supports, components and accessories. Image processing and display workstations provide software applications to process, analyze, display, quantify and interpret medical images/data. The PET and CT images may be registered and displayed in a fused (overlaid in the same spatial orientation) format to provide combined metabolic and anatomical data at different angles. Trained professionals use the images in:  The evaluation, detection and diagnosis of lesions, disease and organ function such as but not limited to cancer, cardiovascular disease, and neurological disorders.  The detection, localization, and staging of tumors and diagnosing cancer patients.  Treatment planning and interventional radiology procedures. The device includes software that provides a quantified analysis of regional cerebral activity from PET images. Cardiac imaging software provides functionality for the quantification of cardiology images and datasets including but not limited to myocardial perfusion for the display of wall motion and quantification of left ventricular function parameters from gated myocardial perfusion studies and for the 3D alignment of coronary artery images from CT coronary angiography onto the myocardium. Both subsystems (PET and CT) can also be operated independently as fully functional, diagnostic imaging systems including application of the CT scanner as a radiation therapy simulation scanner.

Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
TumorLOC will save the incorrect contour when the user saves the contour while in the edit mode, and the software does not force the user to exit the edit mode before saving. In TumorLOC, when saving while a contour is in edit mode, that contour will shift to the slice corresponding to the most recently drawn contour of the last organ in the Organ list.
