- Put Final Text Decision on the planning committee agenda

- Yes. EU (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011) NA (2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011)

- Are there IHE-provided software testing tools to address all aspects of the profile?
- Most test cases verify Display capabilities with a limited sample reference image set provided by IHE.
