Wide-bore computed tomography unit for oncology with 64- and 128-slice configurations marks Fujifilm’s entry into U.S. CT market

Fujifilm Unveils FCT Embrace CT System for Oncology

October 23, 2018 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. recently introduced the FCT Embrace computed tomography (CT) system. Powered by Analogic, the FCT Embrace is the world’s first 85cm wide bore CT imaging unit with 64- or 128-slice configurations, according to the company. Optimized for both oncology and radiology applications, the FCT Embrace, combined with other oncology solutions, offers enhanced and efficient CT simulation with radiotherapy treatment planning capabilities. The unveiling during the 2018 American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Annual Meeting, Oct. 21-24 in San Antonio, Texas, marks Fujifilm’s entry into the CT market.

The new FCT Embrace provides exceptional imaging capabilities, according to Fujifilm, on an easy-to-use, standardized platform for both radiology and oncology. Designed to improve accuracy throughout the entire oncology care cycle, the 85cm bore optimally matches the rotational arc of the linear accelerator — offering easy and precise positioning options for simulation and treatment planning. This allows oncology patients to be imaged in their optimal treatment position at the full clinical image quality afforded by 64-slice or greater systems for the first time, maintaining the accuracy requirements radiation oncology demands without compromising diagnostic image quality.
