Can I do a test myself to check my bladder scanner is OK?Ben TipperYes. You can undertake a self-diagnostic test. This is purely a functional test to undertake, for example, if you have dropped your scanner or probe. This is not calibrating your device. Calibration is undertaken by engineers and is a separate test altogether. Older software may not have this feature (upgrades are available).
