  • Causa

  • Acción
    Users are asked to undertake QA procedures in accordance with the instructions for use (IFU) for Integrity, Precise Table and X-ray Volume Imager (XVI). Users will be informed of the mandatory software upgrade upon its release (expected early 2014) which will mitigate the issue.
