Computed Tomography (CT)

Computed tomography (CT) systems use a series of X-ray images to create an image volume dataset with slices that can be manipulated on any plane using advanced visualization software. The section includes computed tomography scanners, CT contrast agents, CT angiography (CTA and CCTA), CT perfusion, spectral CT (dual-source CT), and iterative reconstruction dose reduction software.

Spectral DLR enables improved assessment of lumen stenosis in the presence of calcified plaque. Interactive monochromatic image display enables improved opacification of the injected contrast with low keV images and reduced calcium blooming artifacts with high keV images

Spectral DLR enables improved assessment of lumen stenosis in the presence of calcified plaque. Interactive monochromatic image display enables improved opacification of the injected contrast with low keV images and reduced calcium blooming artifacts with high keV images. The range of monochromatic energy levels (35-135 keV) can be visualized in real time through an image slider in the application that can be integrated in to a PACS.
