This article was originally published in Clinica
The UK Medical Devices Agency and the FDA are investigating the cause of a potentially dangerous fault in an Isocam II gamma camera made by Canadian firm Park Medical Systems. While in use in one UK hospital, a stainless steel plate from a drive motor failed, causing an arm to fall into the gantry housing of the device. There was no collimator on the camera at the time and nobody was injured. As Park Medical Systems is no longer in business, all further incidents are being reported to the FDA and MDA.
