Reason/Issue It has been identified that the intended use statement listed in the Instructions For Use (IFU) is stated incorrectly. A revision of the IFU with amendments (specifically regarding the functional capabilities of the system) will be released. The amended intended use in the IFU is as follows:

BrightView XCT is a gamma camera for Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) and integrates with an attenuation device consisting of flat panel x-ray imaging components. BrightView XCT produces non-attenuation corrected SPECT images and attenuation corrected SPECT images with x-ray transmission data that may also be used for scatter correction. The nuclear medical images and BrightView XCT images may be registered and displayed in a fused format (overlaid in the same orientation) to provide anatomical localisation of the nuclear medicine data. The BrightView XCT imaging system should be used only by trained healthcare professionals.
