Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Potential safety issue with the patient bore heating on the Discovery MR450 narrow bore 1.5T MRI. In the event of a RF component failure, typically happening after extended system use, a small area on the bore surface may become warmer than normal. If this happens in an area where there is patient contact with the bore, and proper padding is not used, it may cause a serious burn.
