Royal Philips Electronics of the Netherlands, a healthcare modality developer, installed the Philips Brilliance 64-slice computed tomography (CT) system and Philips Achieva 3.0T at Laughlin Memorial Hospital in Tennessee to perform neurological, pulmonary, cardiovascular, trauma and whole-body studies.
The installation at Laughlin Memorial Imaging Center included a 64-slice CT scanner, the Brilliance 64-channel system, which is designed for advanced exams, including neuro, body, pulmonary, cardiovascular, pediatric, interventional and trauma.
Installations at the center also marked the state of Tennessee’s first “4.0T combination” — two magnetic resonance (MR) suites, comprised of a high field 3.0T whole body and a high-field 1.0T open system. The Philips Achieva 3.0T whole-body 3.0T MR scanner offers applications for neurological, musculoskeletal and abdominal imaging, as well as functional and cardiac studies, contrast-enhanced angiography and spectroscopic imaging.
The Philips Panorama 1.0T is a high-field MR with active shielding designed for patients of all sizes, and the signal-to-noise performance is reportedly similar to a 1.5T cylindrical magnet.
