This intermittent communication failure on the image storage chain may result in the following situations: Record abort, Record not available, Fluorostore function not available, Review not available, Boot/Reset failure. Fluoroscopy imaging function remains available to continue the examination, however: The images already acquired may either not be reviewable or the record of images may not be possible. This intermittent failure may result in an additional exposure to patient of X-ray sometimes with iodine (depending on Health Care Professional decision).
