CT system enables scanning of most challenging patients

With the convergence of whole organ coverage, image quality, and speed found in GE Healthcare’s Revolution CT scanner, physicians are now able to diagnose even the most challenging patients. This innovative technology can help clinicians to diagnose more patients with erratic or high heart beats and also provide pediatric patients with sedation-free and low-dose scanning capabilities, among other clinical advances. The wide coverage of Revolution CT allows healthcare providers to scan entire organs such as the brain, heart, liver and pancreas, in a single 0.28 sec rotation reducing breath hold times for patients. Also, the speed of this new technology allows providers to gather information about function as well as anatomy, enabling a comprehensive stroke assessment of the brain in a single exam. Revolution CT comes equipped with ASiR-V, GE’s next generation of low dose technology which routinely reduces dose up to 82% with the same image quality. Furthermore, patient anxiety can be reduced as the scanner is 50% quieter than previous generation CTs while providing soft ambient lighting and personalized gantry displays. It can comfortably accommodate more patients with a larger 80 cm bore size. Patients may not be required to take special medication to slow their heart rate for a diagnostic cardiac exam due to Revolution CT’s fast imaging speed. Revolution CT delivers high definition imaging across the entire body, across all applications, including cardiac exams in a single heart beat; whole brain imaging in less than a second; low dose, whole organ diagnosis and follow-up for oncology patients; detailed boned imaging, even for patients with metal implants; and sedation-free and low dose scans for pediatric patients.
