Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Focal: the couch position can be moved between scans of the same CT study. When the images are imported into Focal, the software is not checking the DICOM Image Position (Patient) tag and therefore is not aligning the images sets if there are different couch positions indicated. A shift between image sets will exist of the same amount that the CT couch was moved.
