Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
During a bolus tracking procedure, no images were generated when the scan was completed, and the raw data file was not available for offline reconstruction. There is a discrepancy between the calculated reconstruction length and the actual scan length that results in the inability to reconstruct raw data. The operator may choose to rescan the patient.
