Chinese Place More Than 100 Orders for Philips' Brilliance iCT

April 11, 2012 - Philips Healthcare announced that more than 100 purchase orders have been made for Brilliance iCT scanner in Greater China. iCT is the world's fastest operating CT scanner and has been in high demand among China's medical institutions for its high-end and cutting-edge technologies and outstanding performance in clinical tests ever since its late 2008 release into the Chinese market. In only three years, the innovative computer tomography scanner at the forefront of medical technology has been largely instituted among the most reputable medical care facilities throughout China.

Due to its modern technology and the large demand of clinical operations, iCT was quickly accepted by China's medical institutions. This scanner, because of its incomparable scanning speed, incredible fine structure display capabilities, high-definition large-scale one-time dynamic imaging, and low-dosage safety features for clinical applications, has considerably improved the efficiency of clinical diagnosis. President of Philips Healthcare Greater China, Mr. Desmond Thio, said, "In China, there are more and more hospitals choosing iCT, which in itself proves the superior clinical performance of this solution. We transform unlimited cardiac imaging into reality."

Medical care facilities mostly use this top-of-the-line CT scanner for diagnosing and screening cardiovascular diseases and the earliest minimal lesion in the whole body. This scanner, because of its excellent imaging quality, helps doctors to accurately diagnose complex diseases and subsequently administer timely and appropriate treatment to their patients. With its improved scanning speed and success rates, iCT has positively tested to enhance the efficiency of hospitals, as well as patients' treatment experiences.

"Like our endless search for the well-being of human kind," Desmond added, "We have continuously innovated our iCT technology. At the end of 2011, Philips launched the newest software version of iCT, which comes with Philips' latest iterative reconstruction technique of iDose4. This platform can complete CT examinations with radiation dosage level less than the natural radioactive background one person experiences throughout a year. In addition to new ways of managing dose, this technology also offers improved imaging quality, bringing the CT examination into a new 'micro-radiation era', a revolutionary achievement that will improve both diagnostic capabilities and patient safety."
