RECALLING FIRM/MANUFACTURER
Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc., Mountain View, CA, by letter on September 25, 2007. Firm initiated recall is ongoing.
REASON
Measurement Error affecting all Sequoia systems using the PAL video standard configuration and have a perspective PC installed: 1) The Sequoia" system is operating at a software revision below 8.0. 2) The Sequoia" system is configured to PAL video mode (normal for systems running at 240V 50 Hz.). 3) While using any of the Perspective" advanced display options listed above, an image or clip is then stored or saved to the system hard drive, MOD or a storage device. (This image or clip is known as a secondary capture.). 4) The secondary capture images/clips are subsequently recalled for review and measurements are made. If a measurement is taken on these secondary capture images/clips, an error can occur. The error is 0% if taken in the same axis that calibration was performed, and ranges proportionately up to 9% if the measurement is taken orthogonal or at right angles (90 degrees) to the axis that was used for calibration. If calibration was done on the horizontal axis, then vertical measurements are underestimated. If calibration was done on the vertical axis, then horizontal measurements are overestimated.
