Full-featured CT scanner with record low scan times and radiation doses, maximizing patient comfort.
Fast scan times ensure accurate imaging, even in challenging cases involving obese patients, trauma patients, restless patients, and more.
Complete an entire thorax scan in less than a second, without a breath hold if necessary for intubated or critical care patients.
A whole body scan only takes approximately 5 seconds.
Provides crystal clear imaging of the coronary arteries with a temporal resolution of 75 ms.
In perfusion or dynamic vascular imaging, long range scans become routine.
Flash trauma scanning doesn?t require a topogram, making a critical difference in trauma patient care plans.
X-CARE technology protects individual organs and radiation-sensitive body regions by minimizing exposure.
