The letter described the safety issue, affected product, safety instructions, product correction and contact information. The letter instructed customers to scan only from the Superior to Inferior direction, when using BrainwaveRT with 2D T1 weighted scan. A GE Field Engineer site visit was also conducted to implement the correction (FMI No, 60745 & 60746), which enables users to scan in both Inferior to Superior and Superior to Inferior directions and have no mismap between the functional and anatomical images.
