Recall # Z-1021-2011.

REASON
There is a potential alignment error of fused PET/CT images in the Vitrea Core component of Vitrea Enterprise Suite 1.2 and 1.3. The error occurs during panning of the fused PET/CT images. Because the PET data has a larger voxel size than the CT data, it is possible to pan the CT image in more frequent, smaller steps than the PET image, so that the fused PET image does not move until the CT data has moved a distance equivalent to the size of the larger PET data. Therefore, while panning, until the PET image moves, the visual representation of PET will not align accurately with the CT data and the fused PET/CT image may not appear in its correct location.
