  • Causa
    Volcano corp. has discovered a very specific workflow scenario where the aortic pressure (pa) offset used in the ffr/ifr modalities will be lost or reset to 0 mmhg due to a software error. this issue can lead to an inaccurately calculated ffr or ifr value. should this occur, a clinician may rely on an inaccurate value in diagnosing a patient's condition. if the pa was not zeroed through the volcano system as part of the workflow, this software issue has no impact on the ffr / ifr values or on the patient.
  • Acción
