Using the System
DVD, CD, and USB Devices
When transferring data to or from a USB device, be sure the transfer is complete before
removing the USB device. For USB devices that have an indicator, be sure the indicator is no
longer flashing before removing the device.
Ultrasound systems may become vulnerable to security breaches when they accept
removable media. Removable USB storage devices may contain viruses. Philips recommends
that you use the system to format USB storage devices before working with them.
Philips does not recommend that you use USB storage devices for long-term storage. Follow
your IT department's recommended practices for intended use of USB storage devices. For
more information about security on the ultrasound system, see Shared Roles for System and
Data Security, included on your User Information CD.
Use only Class-B-compliant USB storage devices with the system. USB devices that are not
Class-B compliant may cause RF emissions that exceed Class B limits. See the device's
documentation to determine whether it is Class-B compliant.
When you export patient data in DICOM format and select Include DICOM Viewer, the system
exports a copy of the DICOM viewer along with the patient data. The DICOM viewer lets you
view images, play clips, and adjust images. Changes made to the images cannot be saved. The
DICOM viewer lets you view stress echo data by stage or anatomic view. The viewer supports
the electronic submission requirements of ICAEL (Intersocietal Commission for the
Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories).
