Recall – Potential for radionuclide detection system to lose time information

Company: Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc.
Date of Enforcement Report: 9/2/2020
Class II

PRODUCT

E.cam or Symbia systems that use foresight detectors – Product Usage: To detect or image the distribution of radionuclides in the body or organ, using the following techniques: planar imaging, whole body imaging, tomographic imaging for isotopes with energies up to 588keV.

Recall Number: Z-2898-2020

REASON

E. CAM and Symbia system with foresight detectors performing gated or dynamic acquisition may lose some detector time information. Our risk analysis indicates that the probability of occurrence is remote. SPECT: To detect or image the distribution of radionuclides in the body or organ, using the following techniques: planar imaging, whole body imaging, tomographic imaging for isotopes with energies up to 588keV. CT: The CT component is intended to produce cross sectional images of the body by computer reconstruction of x-ray transmission data from either the same axial place taken at different angles or spiral planes taken at different angles. SPECT+CT: Perform CT scans and nuclear imaging studies within the same instrument. To obtain attenuation corrected images and to provide registration of anatomical and physiological images within the patient’s anatomy.

62304 Software Training Course – February 23-25, 2021

IEC 62304 and Emerging Standards and FDA Expectations for Medical Device and Health IT Software – Virtual

This very popular 3-day course provides a clear understanding of applying IEC 62304 standard for medical device software and much more. The course compares and contrasts 62304 with FDA expectations and discusses approaches for alignment. In addition, participants will learn of other relevant standards and technical reports pertinent to medical device software, HealthIT, medical mobile apps, and Software as a Medical Device (SaMD) products (e.g., 82304, 80002-1, 14971, 80001-2-x, 62366).

Participants will gain practical advice and pragmatic experience with all types of medical software. Participants will leave with a clear understanding of how to effectively and efficiently integrate 62304 compliance into their software development lifecycle (SDLC).
