REASON
Philips has identified four (4) software defects in the Tumor LOC software application that may potentially result in irradiation of healthy tissue or non-irradiation of diseased tissue. CT imaging displays both high-density tissue, such as bone, and soft tissue.

PET technology enables the practitioner to reconstruct high-resolution, three-dimensional, images of biochemical and metabolic processes of organs within the body.
