Philips Recall Imaging Coils

10th July 2024

Because there is a chance that the Sense XL Torso coils may heat up during an MRI and burn individuals, Philips has recalled a number of these units. After overseeing the recall of more than 15 million breathing devices for over 3 years, Philips has yet another safety issue with its most recent recall.

The business has had imaging equipment problems lately. Due to the possibility of equipment exploding, Philips recalled a number of MRI scanners in November. In the 22 years that the device was in operation, the FDA claimed at that point that there was just one case of a machine exploding.

On June 5, Philips began the most recent MRI coil recall, which affected over 1,000 units sold all around the world. Consumers were informed by the corporation on May 31.

Because of the possibility of patients suffering severe burns or passing away, the FDA classified the recall as a Class I incident, the highest level of severity.
