Re: Genuine question
I get all of this. All of this shit has to be certified and work. Medical review boards are like aviation - and for the same reasons.
But here's the question: If someone buys an MRI scanner in 2003 with a commodity PC to control it, what happens when the hardware goes TITSUP? You are not replacing that fried motherboard that ran XP (or Linux 2.4). Never mind the shitty security of Windows. In aviation, they have custom interfaces for everything which can be serviced and replaced for the life cycle of the aeroplane, and all of this shit is certified. Why not for these medical devices?
