Hospital installs portable 32-slice CT in brachytherapy suite for treatment planning

Florida Hospital First in State to Adopt NeuroLogica's BodyTom Elite CT

June 14, 2018 — NeuroLogica, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., announced that Florida Hospital in Orlando, Fla., added the BodyTom Elite computed tomography (CT) scanner to their brachytherapy suite.

The portable, 32-slice BodyTom Elite improves the patient experience, patient safety and workflow efficiency by eliminating the need to transfer patients. The scanner increases the volume the department can take on while decreasing operating room time by allowing patient repositioning to occur in the operating room (OR). Real-time imaging enhances accuracy when treating cancer patients undergoing brachytherapy treatment.

“Introducing a 32-slice CT scanner has improved our imaging quality and our post-scan reconstruction capabilities, which has helped us deliver our patients higher quality care,” said Matthew Biagioli, M.D., board certified radiation oncologist at Florida Hospital. “Looking forward, the addition of the BodyTom Elite will allow us to accommodate a higher volume of patients in our brachytherapy suite.”

The recently upgraded BodyTom Elite incorporates a new visual design, upgraded software including improved noise- and metal-artifact reduction, along with multiple hardware enhancements. The system remains a self-shielded, multi-departmental imaging solution capable of transforming any room in the hospital to an advanced imaging suite.

In brachytherapy suites, radiation oncologists treat forms of prostate, lung, breast, colorectal and gynecologic cancers by temporarily inserting radioactive sources inside tumors or surrounding areas. This process enables precise delivery of high doses in a short time. Adopting a BodyTom Elite at the head of any brachytherapy suite allows the position of an after-loading device to be verified all in one room while the patient remains unmoved. By removing the need to transfer the patient to an additional diagnostic CT suite, overall patient satisfaction and safety will be significantly improved.
