Hospital patients face delays after 120 nuclear medicine machines were recalled across Australia following the death of a patient in the US. Authorities ordered hospitals across Australia to stop using the nuclear medicine imaging systems, preventing patients from being scanned while the machines are checked for safety. A 66-year-old patient being scanned in a veterans' hospital in New York was crushed when a GE Healthcare Infinita Hawkeye 4 system collapsed when bolts securing the machine came loose.
