Loss of image data: Software anomaly in the Processing Software on the Definium 8000 system may impact patient safety when using the VolumeRAD advanced application (option). The slice visualization of VolumeRAD exams acquired on the Wallstand receptor will be offset by 17mm. This prevents the visualization of anatomy WITHIN a distance of 17mm from the wallstand patient barrier (receptor cover).
