500D_date_and_time.jpgIf you're going to keep accurate patient records, your imaging equipment needs to show the correct date and time on each scan it takes.  Of course, if you've ever tried to reset the clock on your car stereo or program your DVR, you know that, where technology is concerned, seemingly simple tasks can often have more steps than you may anticipate. This is the case for the date and time settings on the Precision 500D R/F room, but we can help.

Below are step-by-step instructions on how to set the date and time on your Precision 500D.

2. Select "Service" from the menu on the left and wait for the service user interface (SUIF) to load.


3. Once the SUIF is loaded, select "Config." from the menu across the top.
