Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Miscalculation: The calculation of the standard uptake value does not include the required calibration factor/decay correction factor. The resulting value is incorrectly calculated, which may lead to incorrect interpretation of tissue density. The calculation error exists in both the software and user guide.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Device Design
Action Consignees were notified by Urgent Device Correction letters that were sent on 1/9/08 and 1/18/08. The letters instructed users not to use the standard uptake value in EVMS for diagnostic interpretation when viewing PET studies unless they received service bulletin 445, 446 or 7.0.1. Users were also instructed to replace pages in the user's guide with the pages provided and to affix the enclosed warning sticker on all workstations. Users will be contacted by the recalling firm to schedule a software patch.
